Rutland Water

England's smallest county is a hidden gem and has two market towns and lots of pretty villages to explore and at its heart is Rutland Water which is Europe's largest man-made lake. This internationally famous nature reserve is managed in partnership with Anglian Water and the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust and provides one of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in Great Britain.

One of the best known and loved landmarks of Rutland is Normanton Church Museum, which was saved from flooding when the reservoir was created and now serves as a museum, housing interesting fossils and telling the history of the area and those villages which were lost beneath the waves in the 1970s.

You could enjoy a 2 hour sailing experience on a skippered yacht or learn to fly fish on Europe's largest trout lake.

One of the most exhilarating ways to explore Rutland is by bike and there are routes to suit everyone and it offers cyclists some of the best views of both the reservoir and the Hamilton peninsular from its waterside tracks which circle the shoreline. There is also a high ropes course and an 8m high climbing and abseil tower.

Barnsdale Gardens are the creation of Geoff Hamilton, Britain's best loved television gardener and presenter of BBC TV’s Gardener's World weekly gardening programme, which Geoff presented from his home at Barnsdale in Rutland.

Rutland Water is approximately a 40 minute drive from Low Farm.
