Enjoy a stay in an Edwardian country house that was the former home of Colonel Colman, founder of Colman’s Mustard and is rumoured to be the property that the game Cluedo is based on! We spend a day at Burghley House, regarded as England’s greatest Elizabethan House where our guided tour will take you back in time. Be inspired in splendid Stamford which stands on the River Welland and was proclaimed by Sir Walter Scott as the finest stone town in England.
