Our 3 day stay was an excellent experience. Chris and Yolande are perfect hosts who made us feel welcome and found time to chat and offer advice on visits etc.. The breakfasts and evening meals were well prepared and presented and very enjoyable. We will happily stay at the White Lion on any future visits to Rutland.
