The space
Welcome to Your Romantic Retreat in the East Midlands!

The Cottage is the result of a loving conversion of the standalone Victorian red-brick Dove Cote at my family home, Rectory Farm. The renovation has just completed so everything is brand new and sparkling clean. It’s filled with custom-made furniture, original art, premium appliances and fun gadgets.

Luxury doesn’t have to mean squandering precious resources – we use Solar Power, Air Source heating, Filtered Well Water and more means you can enjoy your stay without it having to dwell on your conscience.

The Cottage is set in a private 14 acre estate in the rolling countryside close to Market Harborough. Supermarkets, restaurants, and entertainment for kids is a 10-minute drive away. It’s also a great base to explore Leicester, Market Harborough, Northampton, Rugby, Kettering and Corby. London is 1 hour-train away.

We are well located for events at Kelmarsh Hall, Kilworth House Hotel and Theatre, Silverstone Race Circuit, Althorp Park, Leicester Racecourse, Donnington Park and The Sourdough School.

If you are coming in a bigger group why not consider also booking my other 3 bedroom listing at the same location, The Barn - Its an amazing Indoor/Outdoor Living space with a 10 metre glass wall and its own garden that sleeps up to 8, or The Loft, my two bedroom with dining balcony and its own private pond that sleeps 6. Put together, the three units offer sleep 18 adults and 4 infants and offer an amazing space for larger reunions and get togethers. Check my profile for more information.


• Amazing Base from which to explore - Rectory farm is conveniently located for Leicester, Market Harborough, Northampton, Rugby, Kettering and Corby.
• 10 minutes drive to Market Harborough for supermarkets, kids soft play, restaurants etc.
• Good dining in village pubs in Clipston, Sibbertoft and more (5 mins).
• 4 mins drive to Kelmarsh Hall if you are coming for an event or a wedding.
• EV Charger for Electric Cars (Power charge at 20 pence per Kwh)

Travel is life ! I love meeting people and helping them discover the amazing places I am lucky enough to call home in Portugal, Malta and the UK. Maybe you will do as I did in 2009 and give up your old life to make one of these magical places home...

When travelling, I believe that paying to stay in a place is a real treat, and when you do so the very least that you should expect is for it to be as comfortable and clean as your own home, if not even better.

For me, that means spaces that not only look amazing, but also cover the basics that are so often missing in AirBNB properties such as huge beds with fine linens and 100% blackout for a great nights sleep, plus Air Conditioning and Luxury amenities.

It's these simple luxuries, plus sparkling clean places, great wifi / smart home tech and fast responsive service that I make sure to provide for my guests.

Travel is life! I like to meet people and help them discover my incredible Lisbon city, with its culture, parks, beach, shops and fantastic gastronomy! Perhaps you will do like me, who abandoned my old life in 2009 to make this magical place my new home...

When traveling, I think that paying to stay somewhere means having a place as comfortable and clean as your own house, or even better. For me, this means not only breathtaking spaces, but also basic elements that AirBNB rentals so often lack, such as huge beds with fine bedding and perfect light insulation for a good night's sleep, as well as air conditioning equipment. These are the simple luxuries I make sure to provide to my guests.

I think paying for a place to stay while you travel is a real treat, and when you do, the least you can expect is for it to be as comfortable and clean as your own home, or even better. For me, that means spaces that not only look amazing, but also cover the basics that are often missing from AirBNB properties, such as huge beds with fine sheets and 100% blackout blinds for a good night's sleep, plus air conditioning and luxurious amenities. It is these simple luxuries that I make sure to provide to my guests when I am the host as well.

Perhaps you will do as I did in 2009 when I chose to change my life and create this magnificent apartment...

When traveling, I think that paying to stay in an apartment is ideal and when you do, the least you would expect is to enjoy the comfort and cleanliness of your own home or even better. For me it means not only magnificent apartments but also offering basics that are often missing from AirBNB properties like large beds with quality linens and shutters throughout the house for great night's sleep, plus air conditioning and luxury amenities.

These are the amenities that I make sure to provide to my guests when I'm hosting.

When I travel and pay for overnight accommodation in a home, I think it's something special, and if you do, you should be able to assume that it's at least as comfortable and clean as it is at home, or hopefully even better. For me, this means spaces that not only look great, but also include the essentials so often lacking in Airbnb listings, like huge beds with good linens and 100% blackout to get a great night's sleep, plus climate control and luxurious amenities. I make sure to offer these little luxurious details to my guests when I host.

Travel is life! I love meeting new people and helping them discover Lisbon, my amazing city, a city full of culture, parks, beaches, shops and delicious food – all in one day!! Perhaps you, like me, will give up your old life and make Lisbon your new home…

When I travel I find that if you pay for a place, you would make this place at least as comfortable and clean as your own home, and maybe even a little bit better. For me, it means that places must not only look great, but also be equipped with the standard things, things that are often missing from AirBnB places, such as large beds with nice bedding, 100% blackout for a good night's sleep, air conditioning and luxurious facilities. Ik zorg dat mijn gasten kunnen genieten van juist deze faciliteiten.

When you travel, I believe that paying to stay in one place is a real benefit, and when you do, the least you can expect is for it to be as comfortable and clean as your own home, or who knows, even better. To me, that means places that not only look amazing, but also cover the basics that are often lacking in Airbnb properties like large beds with good quality linens and shutters for good nights of sleep, plus air conditioning and luxury amenities. It's these simple luxuries that I guarantee my guests when I'm hosting too.

旅行就是生活!I love to meet friends and help them discover Lisbon - the city that fascinates me. Here, you can experience the local culture in one day, visit the park, stroll the beach, enjoy shopping and taste the food!Perhaps, like me in 2009, you will give up your old life and make this fantastic city your home...

During the trip, I think that spending money in the city where you stay is a real pleasure. In doing so, you should at least expect that the whole process will make you feel at home and tidy, or even better. For me, spending money in the accommodation means that the place where you stay is not only beautiful in layout, but also has the basic elements that are usually missing in Airbnb website hotels, such as a king-size bed with fine bedding, 100% blackout blinds that can bring good night's sleep to guests, and air-conditioning and luxurious and convenient home facilities. And these are not cumbersome luxury configurations, and my apartment is also a must for guests.

I think that when you travel for a place, you expect it to be as comfortable and clean as your own home, or, I hope, even better. For me, this means spaces that not only look great, but also include the basics that AirBNB facilities so often lack, such as huge beds with thin linens and 100% blackout for a perfect night's sleep, as well as air conditioning and luxury amenities. To te proste luksusy, które zapewniam moim gościom.

Travel is life! I love meeting new people and helping them explore Lisbon - my beautiful city where you can enjoy culture, parks, beaches, shopping and amazing food - all in one day! Maybe it will end up doing what I did in 2009 - leaving your past life to settle in this magical place...

I'm sure paying for a place to stay on a trip is a real pleasure, and when you do, at least you hope that this place will be as cozy and clean as your own home, if not better. For me, this is a place that not only looks amazing, but is also equipped with all the amenities that are often lacking in apartments on AirBNB - for example, large beds with high-quality bedding and the ability to completely close the windows to sleep better at night, as well as air conditioning and luxury toilets. This simple luxury is what I try to give my guests when I'm a host.
