Built in 1840 as the village chapel, Candlelight Cottage was converted in 2010 to provide 2 bedroom accommodation for up to 4 guests. .

Located in one of the driest regions in the country, the cottage is a 2-bedroom self catering stone chapel set in the grounds of the owners property in a quiet Nene valley village. Ideally located for visiting the historic stone market towns of Stamford (10 mins), Oakham (20 mins) and Oundle (10 mins), Burghley House (10 mins), Rutland Water (15 mins), East of England showground (5 mins).

Great for a holiday with dogs in a lovely location. The place is architecturally lovely but very basic inside which is a necessity with muddy dogs!

Response from Paul:
Thanks Kathy, i think from your kind comments in our visitors book that you are referring to the wooden floors and wipe clean leather sofas which make the cottage especially suitable for walkers and dogs.

Paul and his son were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage was very easy to find, and everything worked very well. It was a pleasure to stay there. The village is very, very quiet.

What a truly beautiful place! Much bigger than we realised from the pictures. Paul was an excellent host and we felt really looked after. Great location & comfortable bed, and chickens in the garden. Highly recommended.

Paul and Judy are great hosts. The cottage was lovely and welcoming, and very comfortable. We stayed for five nights and it felt just like being at home. There are lovely walks around Yarwell as well as plenty else just a 10-15 minute car-drive away. Makes a great getaway place.

We've just finished a fantastic 2 night stay here. The property was perfect and to a very high standard, the hosts welcoming and incredibly accommodating and even put up a travel cot and stairgate for us. The little touches helped make this a lovely stay and the village is a gorgeous place with lots of walks in the surrounding area. I would really recommend if you need a place in this area and we would definitely book again.
