4 reviews of Burghley House in English
Burghley House is on the edge of the historic town of Stamford, and fits right into it's surroundings. The house has open land for acres around for visitors to explore, play cricket on, or simply watch the deer.
The house itself is slightly pricey to enter, but provides plenty of interesting views and information to keep everyone entertained.
Definitely recommended if visiting this area
To be honest whatever i can say about Burghley House is probably superfluous. What i can say is that whatever they do, they do it really really well. Its a classy place, obviously the surroundings are absolutely beautiful, but more than that everything they do is tasteful - if that sums up images of kenny everett then stop right now !
Seriously, from the food at the Orangerie - fabulous (not cheap) but fabulous ! through to the garden of surprises... a treat !
i guess i would say that its a place for wondering, exploring, eating, drinking and spending some quality time - or just lounging on the grass and wondering about what all those deer think about ?
Actually we had our xmas party here one year (brilliant night if you're interested) and when we came out for "carriages" all the deer were watching us, their eyes reflecting in the mist and the cars headlights - it was magical !
We went for a walk here about a year ago and took the opportunity to explore the Sculpture Gardens. There were quite a few sculptures that took our interest -- and that of our children too, which was surprising given that they were only 4 and 2 at the time! But we could definitely recommend the place as a somewhere good to burn off a few calories. Sadly we didn’t have time to explore the rest of the estate or the House itself, but if we’re in the area again we would certainly want to do so on the evidence of what we’ve seen so far.
