Rutland

Rutland is an idyllic rural destination offering a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. While being a relatively hidden gem, Rutland is convenient to reach from all directions as it is situated in the heart of the East Midlands, making it the ideal location for short breaks in the UK. Quietly nestling in the English countryside, England’s smallest county has much to share with you; not least, the fantastic Rutland Water, an array of unspoilt chocolate box villages and attractive market towns packed with charm and fantastic retail therapy potential! Rich in history and full of character, come and discover the delights of this special place; where you will receive a warm welcome and be enchanted by a decidedly English way of life. Rutland offers a taste of traditional England, undiscovered by many and treasured by a lucky few. The origin of the name Rutland is controversial and hotly debated. Some say it is named after a local landowner called Rota who owned a large estate in the area. Others say that the name stems from the rich red colour of the soil which is found here, and that, over time the name became Rutland. Unfortunately, it looks set to remain a mystery, as there is no conclusive evidence to prove one story or the other.
