Pear Tree Cottage B&B
Pear Tree Cottage is set in a quiet shady garden with views across the valley beyond and sheep in the fields around, on the edge of the pretty village of Manton, and within 1/4 mile of Rutland Water.

The award-winning pub is just a 200 yard stroll away for that restorative evening drink and something to eat. Off road parking, cycle storage, free wi-fi. No smoking anywhere on property.
