Good Day… welcome to Burghley Estate
Burghley House and its parkland visibly generate income through a range of visitors, whether they spend a day exploring the house and its gardens or attending one of the many events held in the park each year. In addition to this and somewhat behind the scenes, the significant cost of managing and preserving Burghley House and its parkland is met by the revenue generated by the surrounding Estate, endowed to the Burghley House Preservation Trust by the 6th Marquess of Exeter in 1987. Made up of farmland, woodland, and property portfolios the Estate covers an array of residential and commercial properties including hotels pubs and offices with additional quarries, gardens and allotments as well as the rights to sporting activities.
The work of the Estate encompasses the maintenance, management and restoration of this wide variety of property which includes many interesting and historic buildings.
The Estate is centred in the beautiful market town of Stamford in Lincolnshire and spreads to the outlying villages of Pilsgate, Barnack, Collyweston, Easton on the Hill, Barrowden, Wakerley and Morcott, where properties are readily available to let.
The Burghley House Preservation Trust owns and maintains a portfolio of property as well as holding a considerable commercial portfolio. Ensuring these properties are occupied and used to their full potential is paramount to the success and support of the Estate and helps provide funds for the upkeep of Burghley House and its surrounding Parkland.
