Stay Active During Your Break

Of course, there’s Rutland Water on our doorstep, which makes staying active during your holiday really easy and fun to do. There’s so many activities running throughout the year at Rutland Water, including sailing experiences, fishing courses, escape rooms and driver experiences. Plus, there’s an amazing Aqua Park open from May to September. 

Walking and Cycling Routes

If you’re keener on taking off on your own or in a small group, then you can walk or cycle some or all of the off road circular 23-mile circuit around Rutland Water. Cycle hire is available at Whitwell and Normanton.  And, as well as the route being one of best in England, you also get to navigate past a selection of excellent pubs and café’s en route – including Rutland Hall Hotel – which is perfect for a stop off drink and bite to eat.

If you’d rather walk than wheel, you’ll be treated to stunning views along the route including walking past the historic and iconic Normanton Church, which sits in the shallows of Rutland Water. If you’re concerned about your little ones lagging behind, there are plenty of shorter walks and trails that are fun and enjoyable – as well as being easier on the legs!

Rutland Water Golf Course 

Head along to Rutland Water Golf Course, which boasts some of the finest golfing in the area.

Enjoy panoramic views of Rutland Water, as you take on the challenge of our 18-hole Championship course – you can also bring the kids too for a ride alongside you on our buggies.

Fishing at Rutland Water 

If fishing is more your style, Rutland Water welcomes both beginners making their first cast and seasoned anglers with a lifelong passion for fishing, offering an inclusive experience for all.

Introduce the youngsters to a new and exciting activity that will grab their attention, with the excitement of a day’s catch leaving them hungry for a hearty dinner back at our Blossoms restaurant and bar – with the fish options highly recommended.

Enjoy a Spot of Shopping

If you’d rather swap your delicacies for some designer tags, then you may want to visit some of the first class shopping that Rutland has to offer.  


Just a few minutes drive from Rutland Hall Hotel, Oakham is a traditional English market town, with a selection of independent and high street retailers to discover. 

Rutland, known as the county of good taste, is home to some of the finest produce, so if you’re able to make it to Oakham’s Wednesday or Saturday markets, you will get the chance to pick up fresh, local produce including meats, pies, local cheeses, artisan bread and fresh free-range eggs.


Unlike the classic shops you now find in the high street, Uppingham is home to speciality shops and traditional retailers – many of whom are still family owned and have been so since the 14th century. It’s a destination worth discovering!
