Rutland is England’s smallest mainland county and comprises just two towns; the county town of Oakham and the market town of Uppingham, with Rutland Water at its centre.

Oakham in Rutland Famed for its notable private school, Norman castle and idyllic location just west of one of the largest manmade lakes in Europe, the traditional pretty market town of Oakham in the East Midlands is a great holiday destination for those with a penchant for history and heritage. The beautiful 15th century architecture and roll call of past famous pupils (or Old Oakhamians as they are known) makes Oakham School a major landmark in the town which draws visitors from far and wide. Don’t miss weekly performances by Oakham school’s musical pupils held every Wednesday at the town’s All Saint’s Church!

Rutland Water Set in 4200 acres of beautiful rolling countryside, Rutland Water near Oakham is one of the top natural attractions in Leicestershire, providing one of the most important sanctuaries for wildfowl in the UK. The Site of Specific Scientific Interest regularly holds in excess of 25,000 waterfowl, which makes it a huge lure for ornithologists who flock (pun intended!) here to view ospreys, Eurasian widgeons, tufted ducks, Canada geese and many many more species of wildfowl native to the UK. If you want to try your hand at dry-stone walling, badger spotting, willow weaving or charcoal burning you can choose from a bevy of countryside activities on offer at Rutland Water whilst on holiday in Oakham.
