America Lodge is a great base for outdoor activities. Rutland Water tops the list: lots of other opportunities include Rutland walks (part of the Macmillan Way runs past America Lodge), cycling, birdwatching, fly-fishing (Eyebrook fishery and Rutland Water), sailing, water sports, riding, golf. Petrolheads might even be attracted by what's on offer at Rockingham Motor Speedway.
Equipment for outdoor activities can often be hired locally. However, if bringing your own, there's ample storage space at America Lodge - even for a boat!
