Hambleton Hall: Rutlands Finest Hotel and Restaurant?

The hotel itself was originally built as a hunting lodge and its location close to Rutland Water making the hall an ideal base for exploring the natural beauty of the Rutland countryside.
Everything about the hotel from the building itself to the décor of the rooms is distinctly English, think chintz and floral decorations but carried off in an elegant and stylised way.
All rooms are individually decorated with names such as “housemartin” and “acorn” there are four main options available from standard to master.
If travelling as a family or larger group, then consider hiring the pavilion suite. The pavilion suite is located just a short walk from the main country house and has two bedrooms, each with a large double bed, an en suite marble bathroom and a separate sitting room. While this is a good option for larger groups, the hotel also offers a tariff for single couples who just want to get away from it all and occupy a single room.

The hotels restaurant is run by one star Michelin chef Aaron Patterson who places an emphasis upon the use of local seasonal produce, to produce mouth watering interpretations of the British classics.
