With 500 acres of Capability Brown parkland as a supporting act Stapleford Park has heritage and history at every turn, indoors and out.

Traced back to the 14th century, there are centuries of history to discover.

Wander through the magnificent halls of this quirky yet elegant Grade I listed stately home and you’ll find plenty to inspire. Exploring the vast collection of antiques and magnificent paintings could well take a whole day. Eat in opulent surroundings and sleep in individually designed rooms, it’s hard not to feel like royalty here. You’ll certainly be treated as such.

A home from home where you’ll be encouraged to rest and unwind. The unique spa in the Grade II stable block will help with that. Gather your friends, gather your family, and bring the dog too. All are welcome.

This house was featured as the home of Lady Catherine de Bourgh in the BBC production of ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

Belvoir Castle

Belvoir Castle stands high above the Vale of Belvoir, near Grantham, and is home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland. The original castle was built on this site in the 11th century and the existing 19th century castle contains collections of paintings, sculptures, porcelain and furniture.

Burghley House is the largest and grandest house of the Elizabethan age which is still privately owned but also open to the public. Capability Brown landscaped the magnificent grounds, including the deer park, and the house contains one of the finest private collections of seventeenth century Italian paintings.

It is also possible to take a cruise on a paddle steamer called the Rutland Belle and enjoy the scenery. Since the creation of the reservoir twenty years ago the nature reserve has become an important wildlife sanctuary. Over 250 species of birds have been counted here and wildfowl numbers can exceed 20,000 in the winter – you may even be lucky enough to catch sight of an osprey.

It is best explored on foot and it is fascinating to visit the 16th and 17th century coaching inns and medieval churches. There are a number of fine antique shops in the town including silver and furniture specialists. A street market is held on Fridays and it is well worth trying some local gastronomic delights such as haslet – a delicious cold meat made of pork, rusk, sage and pepper – and Lincolnshire plum loaf.
