Burrough Court celebrates by creating an 8 acre Jubliee Wood

Dawn Wilson, Director, working with farm personnel to plant new wood.

Having planted over 50,000 trees on the estate since 1996, we have grown to love creating new woods!

The Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Tree Planting Challenge inspired an opportunity to enhance our rolling Leicestershire countryside and during the last few weeks farm personnel have planted a wide variety of species to include: Sessile Oak; Pedunculate Oak; Sweet Chestnut; Walnut; Norway Maple; Silver Marple; Hornbeam; Mountain Ash; Field Maple; Silver Birch; Hazel; Hawthorn; Guelder Rose; Dogwood; Scots Pine and Douglas Fir!

Dawn Wilson, Director, commented “With over 4,000 trees planted, this new spectacular wood will be known as `The Windsor Wood’.  Looking at how well previous plantings have grown, in 10-15 years time it will be a wonderful memory of a very special year”.

Create the right impression for your business meetings

Natural light floods into our Duke of Windsor Room

It takes just a quick glance, maybe three seconds, for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time.  The same principle can be applied to the introduction to your choice of meeting room and having the foresight to research the correct venue can pay dividends.

Using our beautiful historic meeting rooms at Burrough Court can help you create an immediate positive impression of your company, helping to achieve the best results from every meeting.

The comfort of your delegates can play a key role in the success of your event.  No matter how amazing the content and delivery of your presentation, if your delegates are uncomfortable, trapped in a stuffy poorly lit meeting room, their attention levels will fall – guaranteed!

When arranging an important meeting, every business has to ask the question – “Is staging the event at company HQ such a good idea?”.  Privacy and interruptions are huge issues to consider.

At Burrough Court not only do we provide a complete hospitality service to include:-


  • Plasma TV
  • Wi-fi
  • Telephone conferencing
  • Flipchart
  • Stylish pens and stationery
  • Iced mineral water and cordial


……but we also know that it is often the little extra things that count the most in business, so come and see for yourself and experience the difference.

Whether you are looking to book a room for one hour, half a day or a full day, we can tailor a package to suit your budget and requirements.  Did you know that our Duke of Windsor Room can be booked for just £100 + vat for a day?
