Review - Barnsdale Hall, Rutland
We have been to Barnsdale Hall now three years in a row, February 2011, February 2012 and February 2013. We have stayed in a first floor Stable Mews apartment, a Cottesmore Lodge and a ground floor Stable Mews apartment.
All of the accomodation is spotless and well maintained. Swimming towels, bath and hand towels are provided as are tea towels, cleaning cloths and oven gloves. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets are also provided so you don' really need to take much at all. There is a dishwasher and washing machine in each kitchen and a TV and DVD player in the lounge. There is a hairdryer in the main bedroom and also an Ipod docking station with speakers which had an auxillary input which was handy for plugging Marks tablet in and playing tunes in the kitchen, lounge or bedroom when we wanted music.
Each unit is well equipped with a mop and mop bucket, clothes horses for drying clothes and iron and ironing board. Heating is with electric storage heaters in the main living areas, convector heaters in the bedrooms and an electric heated towel rail in the bathroom.
It is great for families are there are so many things to do - our kids LOVE the huge swimming pool and playing crazy golf. There are also tennis courts, a bowling green, a childrens play area and a table tennis room.
