It has become obvious to us at Burrough Court that in the minds of business owners it is very important, for numerous different reasons, to have a physical location. We are seeing a sustained and growing interest from SME businesses across a wide variety of sectors (financial services, point of sale, marketing, travel, wellness) for smaller (sub 400 sq. ft) office space in the Leicestershire area, not far from Melton Mowbray.
After 2+ years of forced remote working due to the COVID pandemic, people are now seemingly wanting to separate work life from home life, being together more frequently with colleagues and having a dedicated place where they can meet.
All of Burrough Court’s prospective office space customers consistently share the view that teams are happy to have some time working from home but having a hub of ‘smaller better’ space gives everyone the best of both worlds.
Commuting to non-urban business space is seen as much more acceptable too (given consistent travel times we are told) than flogging all the way into a city centre to then spend £5-10 a day parking your car, that’s assuming you can find a space! A stress that one doesn’t need at the start of the day which is corroborated by survey results that a huge 79% of respondents named the lack of city commute as one of the best things about WFH, making it the most popular response by far.
Employee wellbeing should be the deciding factor for business owners, giving their teams the opportunity to get out in nature, exercise, attend yoga classes, walk their dog, grab a nutritionally complete breakfast or lunch, plus a delicious barista coffee during their working day. This might not sound like your typical ‘business park’ destination but that’s exactly what Burrough Court offers, as standard.
As ever, the office market reflects and is responsive to wider changes in society’s behaviour. The doom-sayers were wrong for office space with a difference, that difference being a superior working environment compared to home, where it is a destination and more than just four walls.

Testimonials from small office businesses
“If ever there was a perfect place to work it is Burrough Court. Apart from beautiful grounds and an excellent office space, the facilities are exceptional including the staff. The gardens are kept pristine, great care is taken by staff and Fred the owner, to ensure everything is in place. Communication is super quick, car park facilities are wonderful as is the Coffee Shop. I have worked in many office buildings but this is certainly a one off exceptional site. My clients who visit always comment on the venue. Thank you.“Dr Clare Boorn, Owner, EPSS Psychology
“The reason Burrough Court really stood out for me was the beautiful surroundings, there aren’t many places geared up for businesses that are not just 4 plain walls. You would never know there are approx 350 people who share these stunning grounds, yet its atmosphere is certainly not lacking!
As I type this I’m watching a pheasant walk past my window, possibly enjoying the rural setting just as much as we all are! I cannot wait for warmer days where work can spill outside into one of the many benches available to use scattered around the grounds. The staff that keep the place running and looking so pristine are a pleasure to be around, just adding to the really welcoming and inclusive environment. Another serious selling point for me was the on-site cafe, which serves freshly made soup and salads amongst other yummy things, and proper barista coffee!
Running a creative business like mine, where inspiration is essential, this couldn’t be a better spot for me, and I would highly recommend Burrough Court to any business!“Emma Miveld, Owner, Citrine Sun Crystals
