The Experience

The Studio was built for Isabel’s uncle, an artist, so it’s all about the light. Large, high ceilings and windows encourage illumination in this big open-plan space during the day, which miraculously transforms to warm and cosy when it’s dark. Working wooden shutters and underfloor heating keep things at simmer heat even on frosty days, the lighting is well thought-out (rare) and an eclectic book collection will intrigue bibliophiles.

The fireplace is in your bedroom so you can fall asleep under a Welsh blanket listening to the soporific shift of the odd log: French doors from here take you to the east facing garden – all yours, bordered by beech hedges with views over parkland and a fire bowl to make your quota of fresh air last as long as possible. Inside you’ll find fresh flowers, bread from the baker down the road, eggs from Isabel’s hens, veg from the garden in season.

Head out on walks, spot rare birds, unbend.

The Studio is absolutely idyllic. It is a beautiful, double height, converted artists studio that has been converted to a high standard. The abundance of light contributed to our sense of wellbeing, and we loved the toasty underfloor heating underfoot. We absolutely loved our stay! The views, the walks, the sheep in the fields - made it such a stunning setting, surrounded by nature. We also loved the food basket of essentials left by Isabel. And her communication was excellent before and throughout our stay. We would 100% recommend the studio and we are already planning to return for longer!

Thank you Isabel for a wonderful short break at The Studio - such an extraordinary space. We both enjoyed a really relaxing stay and everything was thought about. There was a useful welcome pack in the kitchen, the rooms were really warm and it was a really great place to unwind with a lovely garden at the front of the property. There are many places to visit in the local area, we particularly recommend Easton Walled Gardens, Stamford (antiques shop and The George Hotel) and Burghley House not far away. Thanks for being so helpful we feel very likely to return! Sue and Simon.

We have just had a 4 night break staying in this wonderful studio - a strange description as it is massive with every luxury you could ever want. The real fire in the bedroom area was a huge bonus and made use of every night whilst reading the fabulous collection of art books. Although we booked this break as a peaceful retreat to get over some health issues, it turned out that the surrounding area had lots of beautiful places, including National Trust places to visit, which of course we did. For walkers, the area is a delight and for bird watchers there is no where better. Red kites and all.

David & Ann, Beverley

We really enjoyed our stay at The Studio, especially the log fire! The Studio is a high quality rural retreat, set in very pleasant and scenic grounds. We are keen fly anglers and it is ideally situated for our future trips to Rutland Water.

Steven, Norwich

We loved our stay here. Location is perfect - really close to so many great places to visit, yet secluded and peaceful with only the birdsong to disturb you. The Studio itself is beautiful and spacious with lots of thoughtful touches. We'd love to come back one day if it's not fully booked!

Jenny and Tom, London

The Studio is the most beautiful gem! Surrounded by beautiful countryside and its own private garden, with outdoor seating and a fire bowl. secluded and yet near to cities and towns for amenities and attractions, gives you the best of both worlds. The beautiful large windows let light flood in and allow the summer breeze to keep you cool on a hot summer’s day. The shutters add character and extra cosiness in this amazingly spacious space with all the amenities you need. We highly recommend this and the owners, amazing staycation. Tranquil and healing. Isobel and the family are wobnderful.

Lisa, Burton-on-Trent

Excellent accommodation. Isabel was delightful to deal with from initial email answered all my questions. Will recommend to anyone who wants a restful stay!

Maureen, London

A lovely, informal, friendly and happy place to stay - a real break from city life or the daily grind and just a very short train ride from London. Come to be restored.

The neighbourhood

On the farm, you can explore a deep hidden valley with a wildflower meadow dating back to medieval times, a healing spring and the history of a lost village. Newark is half an hour - a pretty market town with a good market on Saturdays. Woolsthorpe has a good pub. Walk the Viking Way, cycle along tiny roads with massive verges, make a day trip to Cambridge or the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Local points of interest from Isabel Burford

  • A stone's throw from your doorstep you will come across the jewel of Hungerton- the wildflower meadow. Bursting with colour and alive with birds and insects, it's the perfect spot for an afternoon of sunshine.
  • A 25 minute drive will get you to Rutland Water - the UK's largest resevoir (in the smallest county!). Cycle paths and walking routes encircle the water, sailing courses are available, and bird watchers will enjoy looking out for ospreys.
  • The nearby historic market towns of Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford are sure to charm and delight, and if you are feeling hungry why not take a short drive to Melton Mowbray to try one of their world-famous pork pies?
  • We are as sustainable as possible, using eggs, veg and flowers from our garden and offer eco friendly products for guests' use. as well as for cleaning the Studio. Heating and hot water comes from our biomass boiler that runs off wood pellets.
  • An area steeped in history, explore the outstanding local houses of Belton and Burghley, or visit the set of The Crown on a trip to Belvoir castle, its outstanding grounds, and boutique shops.
  • Foodies will enjoy the farmers' market in Oakham on the last Saturday of the month, or if you are looking for something more up-market then Nottingham's two michelin-starred Sat Bains will serve up a night to remember.


Isabel Burford

Isabel's grandparents bought the farm in 1928. Isabel, an interior designer, took it over unexpectedly when her grandmother died. She doesn't consider herself a 'proper' farmer but has plenty of help. She is deeply rooted here and her wish is that you come to appreciate the power this place has to seep into your soul, and that you'll leave feeling better than you did when you arrived.
