About 1 the Green - Self Catering Cottage Holidays


The central location is ideal for family meet-ups and stopping on route up or down the country. You can also easily get to Nottingham, Lincoln, Stamford and Leicester from here by car, and London by train from Grantham.

1 The Green is a delightful 4 bed- roomed holiday cottage in the village of Muston in the Vale of Belvoir (pronounced “Beever”), which is in the Midlands. Muston is actually on the edge of three counties - Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, and also quite close to the tiny county of Rutland. The nearest town is the market town of Grantham, and the nearest pub, called The Gap because it is in the gap between 3 counties, is 10 minutes walk away.

The house is actually two farm cottages joined together to make a family house of four bedrooms with gas central heating. The house is newly restored in a sympathetic style using natural ecological paint, and is furnished with antique pieces to suit the house.

There is an ample supply of glassware, china and linen.
There is a large kitchen with electric stove, microwave oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble drier; a large sitting- room with television and open fire and an elegant separate dining-room/study.

There are two double and two single bedrooms, capable of sleeping 6 people in all. There is a bathroom, shower room and a downstairs cloakroom.
Outside there is a large front lawn, and at the rear a patio garden. A small conservatory serves as a store for bicycles, walking gear and garden furniture. There is covered parking adjacent to the house for one car, and road-side space nearby for further parking.

Grantham is a typical English market town 6 miles from Muston on the A52 (market on Saturdays). It is famous for being the town where Margaret Thatcher grew up! You can see the house where she lived as you drive into town. At the market you can buy fresh local vegetables, Stilton cheese and the famous Melton Mowbray pork pies.

Near Grantham is the fine 17th century Belton House, and ten miles south of Muston you can find Woolsthorpe Manor, birthplace and family home of Sir Isaac Newton. Visit the websites for Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Rutland to discover many more things to do in the area. The nearest place to visit is Belvoir Castle, a striking local landmark overlooking the Vale.

If you prefer to stay in with a log fire, there is chess, Scrabble, Bezique, TV with Freeview and iPod dock, wireless internet, and a variety of books and classical cassettes.

The landscape of the Vale of Belvoir is flat and mostly given over to agriculture. The Vale has many villages, most of which have a pub and a church. It is very suitable for walking and cycling.
