Welcome to The Barnsdale

to The Barnsdale

At the heart of England's smallest county, on the edge of the breath-taking Rutland Water, you will find The Barnsdale, the latest fabulous addition to The Signet Collection.

The former hunting lodge has been lovingly reimagined, paying tribute to its history and distinctive local area - quirky British sensibility meets elegant authentic luxury, the old blends with the new, the refined with the comfortable, and the local with the worldly.

We look forward to welcoming you.


Step into one of our colourful, warm and inviting bedrooms or suites. The Barnsdale's 45 bedrooms are perfect for a weekend in the country. Choose from a range of room types, including twin rooms, family rooms and the stunning Fort Henry Suite.

Bedrooms & Suites

With a timeless environment and a sensational menu, our laid-back brasserie 1760  - named after the year the original hunting lodge was built here at Barnsdale - is the place to enjoy good times and exceptional food with friends and family. 

Open for lunch 12-2:45pm and dinner 6 - 9pm

Relax with a well-earned pint of Barnsdale Bitter after work in the Burley Bar, a romantic dinner in 1760, Afternoon Tea with friends in the Orangery, a quick business meeting over coffee in the Rod Room or a chilled glass of Whispering Angel in our sunny courtyard.

Rutland and the surrounding areas is one of the country's best-kept secrets. There's a plethora of local adventures: water sports on Rutland Water, family days out, boat trips, magnificent stately homes and fascinating nearby towns, such as historic Stamford - famed for its history, niche shopping and cafe culture.

Rutland Retreats is a collection of two and three-bed self-catering lodges. Ideal for families, each Retreat comprises a master bedroom and one or two additional bedrooms, with French doors opening onto a private garden. 

The Retreats are a couple of minutes walk from the hotel, so you can combine the freedom of self-catering with The Barnsdale's fabulous facilities.
