About us

We welcome guests to connect with us on their stay

Our names are Steve & Hanri – we have hired out two of our previous homes as holiday lets, but the
Bee Cottage is our first dedicated holiday let, and by far our greatest renovation project.

Steve is currently doing a Masters Degree in Sustainability, and also crafts furniture from reclaimed
wood (examples can be seen in the Master bedroom headboard & side tables, the TV table, coffee table and some shelves
around the cottage). Hanri is a dance photographer, a children’s book Art Director and Yoga teacher
(she teaches yoga on Tuesday nights 7pm in Oakham at the Hotbox
do come along if you fancy a stretch).

Steve and Hanri enjoy walks with our rescue dog chunk and keeping fitting at CrossFit in Oakham.


Our one person green team

We are delighted to announce a new member to our team – Martina.

Martina is our new gardener.  She”ll be visiting the Bee Cottage Rutland by making the most of our front and back garden area.  

Martina has a honest passion for gardening and she’ll be maintaining our foliage within a green and white theme.

To keep in sync with the bee’s, Martina will be bringing the flowers and plants back to their full pollen-potential!

Welcome Martina and we look forward to see what magic you will bring to the cottage.
