Two former farm cottages of stone and brick construction now offer a wonderful opportunity
for development and conversion. Combined
with the barn they offer an array of possibilities
which subject to the right permissions, might include a home office or annexe.

Tucked away off all main roads, Whissendine enjoys the tranquility of beautiful rural surroundings and easy access to local market towns being almost equidistant between Oakham and Melton Mowbray.

The village has at least 1,000 years of history, being mentioned in the Domesday Record. The name's origin, Wyckinga's Den, is Anglo Saxon and means 'valley with a stream belonging to Wick's people'. And the Whissendine Brook is still a central feature of the village.

The village benefits from a public house The White Lion, a village shop with Post Office, hairdressers and an active community with daily events such as Archery, Pilates and Line dancing held in either the village hall or Sports Club, deriving from a strong sense of community highlighted by the village website www.whissendine.net.

St Andrew's Church is one of the largest in Rutland, its impressive 100- foot tower can be glimpsed across the rolling countryside from several miles away.

Schooling is excellent in the area with both Whissendine Church of England Primary school,
and Catmose College in nearby Oakham receiving "Outstanding" Ofsted reports, and the renowned Uppingham and Oakham public schools close by.

Nearby Rutland Water provides a wonderful
array of water sports and leisure pursuits and
the nearby Stapleford Trot provides 18 miles of
off road riding.

The properties are approached off Station Road
a lovely peaceful lane, to a single driveway adjacent to cottage No 7. To the rear is a paved
pathway round to No 5 and steps to a raised
garden mainly laid to lawn, with a well and water
pump. Beyond is the barn, a former milking shed with original features intact.
