Within twenty to thirty five minutes’ drive of Hambleton there are a number of country houses, castles, and churches of considerable interest. Burghley House, Belton House, Belvoir Castle, Grimsthorpe Castle and Rockingham Castle. Some local village churches include Normanton and Exton. Alternatively many of our visitors like to seek some inspiration in a fine garden; our favourite gardens are Coton Manor, Barnsdale Gardens and Easton Walled Gardens. We also have three charming market towns close at hand, Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford.
