We stayed in Barnsdale for one week in November. The grounds were beautiful, as were the units. We had a 3 bedroom, 2 story house which had all of the amenitites one could ask for. The units were spotless and very large.

They offered many activities and tours during our stay, and we took advantage of most of them. It was one of the nicest resorts in Europe we have been to.

We stayed in a "three" bedroom A-frame only steps away from the main lodge and dining room and overlooking the beautiful Rutland Waters lake. Our unit was immense, with three bathrooms, two bedrooms, a kitchen and living room on the first floor and two cute little twin- bedded rooms on the second floor. (Our exchange claimed it was a three bedroom, but to me it was actually four.) We also had a washer and dryer in the unit. Not only did we have an every day set of dishes and flatware, we had a second "company" set and a full set of crystal stemware. The A-frames are ideal for a family.

The setting is idyllic and the surrounding area very rural and beautiful. Oakham is about 2 miles away, and unless you have a car, the cab ride is seven pounds (about $14) one way. The train station in Oakham hooks you up with the main rail lines of Britain, so armed with a Britrail Pass, you can easily day trip by rail to most of England. London is a 1 1/4 hour train trip, York is 2 hours.

Driving in the countryside around Oakham is a real treat. Every few miles, another picture perfect village pops into view, perhaps with its own castle! Shakespeare's Stratford and Warwick Castle are 1 1/2 hours away by car, Robin Hood's Nottingham is only 45 minutes away. It's hair raising to drive in England, but we did survive.

The food in the dining room was very good although we only ate there twice, both times for breakfast. We were almost always on the go, day tripping all but one day of our stay. It was very nice to come home at the end of each day to our very peaceful and incredibly beautiful Barnsdale home.

We stayed in a three bedroom unit in the main hall. It was spectacular with over 2000 square feet of space, three bathrooms with two ensuite, bay windows overlooking Rutland Water and a decor reminiscent of a bygone opulence. The picture in the above description may have even been our unit. The grounds were impeccable, the staff responsive and the bisto/dining room adequate. The higher end dining room, The Osprey, served us one of our best British meals. Take the local village tour. It was worth the 15 GBP price. Altogether deserving of a return to their previous gold crown rating.
