About Me

Jane Williams, author of My Rutland

Jane Williams, owner of My-Rutland.com

Country born and bred, Rutland in England is Jane Williams‘ adopted county.  I moved to Rutland in 2006 and love everything about living in England’s smallest county.

But as our county motto says Multum in Parvo – which I very loosely translate as ‘there is much to see and do in a little place’…

My favourite things to do in Rutland include walking the dog across the gentle countryside and around magnificent Rutland Water…  the compact villages, once part of great estates, with cottages of golden stone and ancient churches; historic towns with weekly markets and independent shops; cultural events in  Uppingham and Oakham schools and in artists’ studios across the county, plus good food and dog-friendly pubs.

My working life is in travel and tourism marketing, and  in my time I’ve slept in five-star hotels, eaten wonderful food and travelled the world, from the glaciers of New Zealand and the Great Shield of Canada to the souks of Dubai.

Now, my aim is to discover Rutland; exploring its smaller-scale attractions and the gentle pursuits of walking, antiques-hunting, visiting gardens and checking out local restaurants.

Rutland may not have the highest mountain, the deepest lake or the most ancient site in Britain, but there are few better places to live, or to visit for a short break.  (Rutland is well-connected, with easy access to/from the A1 or by rail to London.)

As I explore more of my adopted county, I share my discoveries at My-Rutland.com  and on Twitter where you will find me @My_Rutland

If you run a Rutland tourist attraction, restaurant, hotel, holiday cottage, pub, garden centre or other business and you would like to promote it on my website, please contact me on 07989 975 705.
