“Great cottage in super location”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cottage is fantastic, well set out and excellently equipped, a real home from home. I loved the antiques, and bits and pieces, although it was a bit "cluttered" on some of the surfaces, which I thought was a bit impractical, but that’s just a personal opinion and me probably being too practical. The location of the cottage is great for all the main towns and markets, and some fantastic walks in glorious countryside are only a few moments’ drive away. The Sun pub in the village is great for a beer and some good honest pub food, and is only a short walk away, as is the village store. There are many great pubs in the villages around Cottesmore, many at the start and end of a good walk. We can't recommend this cottage more highly.

Thank you for taking the time to post your kind & positive feedback following your stay at Sticky End. The antiques & curios are all part of the charm of the cottage, which we have deliberately tried to make an extension of our home. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you again in the future, either back at Sticky End or to one of our other charming Rutland luxury thatched cottages, Little Thatch in Seaton or Autumn Cottage in Preston.

“Absolutely charming”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

While "charming" has a very twee connotation, it is the only word that describes this little gem adequately. This cottage is full of delightful little treasures, lovingly collected and displayed by the owners. The "library" was our favourite!
It also is the best stocked holiday home we have EVER stayed in. The owners seem to have thought of everything you could possibly need, starting with a pint of milk and ending with cotton buds!
We had a great time and will certainly be back.

““Sticky End” A Delightful Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have had a wonderful week based at “Sticky End” holiday cottage in Cottesmore.
“Sticky End” is a delightful thatched cottage, full of interest, clean, and relaxing. It is extremely well equipped with everything provided for a comfortable stay.
Martin and Julia welcomed us on arrival and were friendly and helpful.
The cottage is conveniently based for exploring the lovely Rutland countryside and surrounding areas – with many places to visit.
We enjoyed a very warm week and spent our days exploring the area, with the added pleasure of returning to “Sticky End” at the end of the day. Particularly relaxing was sitting in the pretty little garden with a drink listening to the trickling sound of the water feature.
A wonderful stay and we hope to return again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your positive feedback & for being model guests! It was a pleasure to meet you both & delighted that you enjoyed both the cottage & the Rutland area. Glad you appreciated the old French urinal fountain too! We very much hope to welcome you back to Sticky End, or indeed one of our other Rutland thatched cottages, Little Thatch in Seaton near Uppingham which you saw, or our new property, Autumn Cottage in the nearby village of Preston, before too long.
Warm regards, Martin & Julia.

“Well-Equipped very comfortable and delightful thoughtful touches”
Reviewed 1 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Sticky End for Christmas 2014. The cottage is very clean, warm, well equipped and very comfortable. Martin and Julia had thought of everything including decorated Christmas Tree and decorations and of course Mince Pies to make our stay home from home! We even had snow on Boxing Day which made the cottage and village look magical.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A high quality cottage and the best equipped we had ever stayed in. Sticky End felt just like someone's home which can be difficult with holiday rental properties. Martin and Julia achieved this very well. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they had thought of every need their guests may have had. The A - Z covered every topic and question we could possibly have. Eg - We weren't left wondering what to do with the rubbish and when to put the bins out. We had a very relaxing week which was just what we needed.
