A number of different rooms, including 2 large lounges (with TV/DVD/Stereo/Wi-Fi) & a classroom area. These rooms can be used very flexibly and are all ideal for meetings, rehearsal rooms & other activity space. The house also has a dining room, a conservatory & large kitchens, as well as many toilets. One of the lounges can be converted into a bedroom for guests that are not able to access the upstairs bedrooms and this room has its own accessible hygiene suite. In addition to this there are two additional activity/meeting rooms adjacent to the building - both of which can be made available for visitors if required.


Self-catering groups have access to our professionally equipped kitchen facilities, with large ovens, hobs & hot cupboards. There is plenty of fridge, freezer & food preparation space.


Accessed via an impressive sweeping staircase, the upstairs of the house has 60 beds in rooms ranging from small 2-3 bedded rooms to larger dormitory rooms with bunk beds. If groups do not wish to use any upper bunks there are 37 single beds & lower bunks in total. All rooms have toilet and shower facilities nearby.


3 acres of landscaped gardens surround the property, containing much of interest, with a large orchard, meadow area, wildlife pond & many seating areas. There are various sculptures and pieces of play equipment dotted around the garden, a hard standing suitable for games and secure car parking for more than 30 cars.


The village of Burwell has a good range of shops including a butcher, baker, 3 small supermarkets, chemist & gift shops. There are a range of takeaways & pubs. There is also an excellent museum & a range of churches, as well as easy access to nearby attractions, such as Anglesey Abbey, Wicken Fen, Newmarket races & Cambridge.

As part of the Learning Directorate of Cambridgeshire County Council, the principal reason for our existence is to work with & support groups with a learning or training focus. With this in mind, we are not a suitable venue for for parties or hen or stag weekends, and we ask all groups that in whatever they do they take this into account.
