5 Reasons to stay at the Barnsdale Hall Hotel
1# Multiple Room Options
One of the great things about Barnsdale Hall Hotel is the variety of sleeping options. There are 3 buildings to choose from, Barnsdale hall, Barnsdale lodges or Barnsdale Apartments. Each one offers style and comfort with a unique unforgettable experience.
The lodges were our absolute favourite situated on the bank with a lake view! Some are a pyramid shape and some have large upstairs balcony’s. Each one has everything you need for a self-catering holiday and has a contemporary look inside.
If you don’t like the idea of the lodges but still want a self-catering holiday then an alternative option is the Barnsdale Apartments. Built in the old stable mews they come in various sizes and have full kitchens. Inside is beautifully decorated.
The Barnsdale Hall is the oldest out of the three options and not as modern. However, it has the most character with traditional wooden beams and old staircases. With this option, you are staying within walls that hold 100’s of years worth of secrets. Each room has tea & coffee making facilities but no kitchens as you will need to dine in the hotel restaurant or off-site.
2# Breathtaking Views
Barnsdale Hall Hotel is situated high on the North edge of Rutland Water. The area has some of the most amazing views in the whole of Rutland offering breathtaking views of the whole lake!
Imagine waking up in the morning to nothing but a sea of green trees and blue water, like something from a fairy tale!
3# Years of History
The history at the Barnsdale Hall Hotel dates back to the 1890’s and even has Royal connections! It was built as a family hunting lodge for the sixth Earl Fitzwilliam. The area was a prime location for fox hunting, a very popular sport at the time.
Unfortunately, the hall fell into disrepair over the years. Due to the creation of the reservoir during the mid 70’s Rutland became a hotspot for tourists.
During the 1990s Barnsdale was then repaired and finally turned into a fine luxury hotel where over the years it has been extended.
