“The most PERFECT cottage ever!”
Reviewed 27 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013
person found this review helpful

My mother and I booked Sticky Cottage based solely upon photos that we saw online. We weren't familiar with Cottesmore, although we had read that the Rutland area was lovely. Turned out to be one of the best travel decisions we've made (and Mom and I go to England together annually), as Sticky End did not disappoint! In fact, it far exceeded our expectations, and the website photos do not begin to do this wonderful little thatched cottage justice. From the moment we walked in and were shown around by Martin, we were smitten. Never have we stayed in accommodations where such a high attention to detail was lavished. The cottage has been refurbished to a very high standard, but still definitely retains tremendous old-world character. Everywhere you look, there are antiques and interesting, unique items to delight the eye. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we spent much of our time in the cottage just wandering around and gazing at all of the beautiful decorative touches. From the little library stocked with wonderful old books to the upstairs bedroom closet that has been filled to the brim with delightful children's toys, the collection of handmade teddy bears, the amazing old advertising signs in the laundry room, the porcelain and china ... oh my! Perfection! If you've seen the movie "The Holiday" with Kate Winslett and Cameron Diaz and fallen in love with the cottage in that film, you will absolutely love Sticky End. I think it's even better! The cottage is an ideal base for touring Rutland, with parking right outside the courtyard. It's warm, cozy, beautiful ... just an absolute delight, and if I could give this cottage 10 stars, it would still not be enough.
