Ranksborough Hall - Rutland



Ranksborough Hall, built in 1893 was once the home of Lord Ranksborough, equerry to Queen Victoria. The Estate has been visited many times by Royalty, in particular George V who regularly rode with the local hunt. The Royal Family today visit Burghley House close by, famous for Show Jumping and its historic interest. Visitors to the hall come from far afield as Scotland and Wales with an increasing number from overseas. The grounds, only 20 miles from the M1, and 8 miles from the A1, are relatively easy to travel to.

Occasionally referred to as the Cotswolds... without the crowds, Rutland offers stunning and unspoiled countryside along with plenty of leisure activities and places to see.

Rutland Water, as big as Lake Windermere, set in over 3000 acres of beautiful countryside, is a hub for much of the local activity. The twenty-five mile track around the reservoir is ideal for cycling or strolling. Egleton is famous for its bird-watching centre (look out for the Ospreys), and of course people travel from all over the country to go fly fishing. Sailing and windsurfing are popular, and you can try rock climbing at Rockblok on the shore. The setting also includes one of the localities three golf courses.
Rutland Water is not the only place to visit locally; the whole area is a ramblers' paradise with a labyrinth of footpaths linking wonderful villages and hamlets.

Whether you prefer a relaxing lunch in a village public house, an energetic round of golf, or perhaps a day out trout fishing, you will be well received in the villages and towns around Ranksborough Hall.
There's much to see, so... be sure to place an ordnance survey map high on your list if you move into a park home at Ranksborough Hall.
