Why We Love This Hotel

  • Milly's is the hotel's restaurant and neighbourhood bistro, with a weekly changing menu and daily blackboard specials. The resident's lounge has deep sofas and a cosy atmosphere, whilst the terrace presents an opportunity for al-fresco dining and cocktails in the sun
  • The extensive grounds, flower-filled gardens, and priceless works of art displayed in Burghley House are all on The William Cecil's doorstep. Eagle-eyed members might recognise this striking 16th-century building as the backdrop for scenes from "Pride & Prejudice", "The Da Vinci Code", "The Flash", and "The Crown". 
  • The hotel is named after William Cecil, who was adviser to Queen Elizabeth I during her reign and who built Burghley House as a demonstration of his wealth and power. 
  • The famous 18th-century Scottish author Sir Walter Scott once proclaimed Stamford as the "finest stone town in England". This holds true to this day, with The Times listing Stamford's high street as one of the loveliest in the UK
  • Rutland Water is less than 15 minutes' away by car.
