Win a Burghley Estate break for two worth over £1,000

Part of the famous Burghley Estate in the golden-stone market town of Stamford in Lincolnshire, the William Cecil hotel promises a cosy stay, steeped in history and punctuated by delicious food.

Give our competition a go and you could be settling in for two nights at this handsome hotel, staying in a luxurious room with a three-course dinner and wine each evening at Milly’s Bistro and, in the mornings, a full English breakfast. Milly’s focuses on local, seasonal food with a Mediterranean slant. Mains might include roast sea trout, heritage tomato, samphire, ratte potatoes and salsa verde; and for dessert, perhaps a choux bun with yellow peach, raspberry and vanilla ice cream.

A room in the William Cecil


During the day you can discover the secrets of the estate with complimentary tickets to Burghley House, one of the largest and grandest surviving houses of the 16th century. Or you might prefer to take in the peaceful surroundings of the hotel by bike, with cycle hire provided for your stay.

  • Three-course set menu dinner each evening at Milly’s Bistro with wine both nights
