Hambleton Hall is perched high atop the Hambleton peninsular and overlooks a magnificent body of water — Rutland Water. The largest man-made lake in western Europe, Rutland Water has something for everyone. The attractive 3,100 acre reservoir has an international reputation for providing a balance of sport, leisure and wildlife conservation and offers the opportunity for all to try something new.
You can try energetic sports such as windsurfing, rock-climbing or canoeing, hire a dinghy, bicycle or fishing boat or just relax by the water and watch the action around the 25 mile shoreline.
The internationally famous Rutland Water Nature Reserve provides one of the most important wildfowl sanctuaries in Great Britain, regularly holding in excess of 20,000 waterfowl.
The Reserve occupies shore line and shallow water lagoons along nine miles of the western end of Rutland Water Reservoir and covers a total area of 1,000 acres. It was created in the 1970s with the construction of the reservoir. There are currently 31 bird watching hides and nature trails from two visitor centres.
The village is situated on the Hambleton Peninsula, surrounded on three sides by Rutland Water, and is approximately three kilometres from the small market town of Oakham. It is thought that Hambleton was at one time the capital of the Anglo Saxon Kings in Rutland. The Doomsday Book states the village having an estimated population of 750; with three priests, three churches, a mill and 45 ploughs at work.
In 1976, Rutland Water was created by flooding the lower land to provide a water source for the local area. Nether Hambleton (known as the ‘lost village’), is now full submerged under Rutland Water and has been shown by excavation to have once been a sizeable medieval settlement.
