Mouth-Watering Melton Mowbray & Burghley

Mouth-Watering Melton Mowbray & Burghley

A taste-bud tingling selection of savoury treats and sweet sights are heading your way as we travel to Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, visiting beautiful gardens, country estates and sampling the region's finest wares.



Mouth Watering Melton Mowbray & Burghley


Burghley Estate, commissioned by William Cecil, the 1st Lord Burghley

and Lord High Treasurer to the crown,

 is an architectural and landscaping masterpiece

designed to impress royalty by the scale of its grandeur.



Featuring fine frescoes and artwork collected on grand tours of Italy,

a sumptuous interior reflects over 500 years of artistic excellence. 


17th Century Heaven Room


In the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice

 starring Dame Judi Dench and Keira Knightley,

 It was remarked that Burghley is 'the most extraordinary sight in all of Europe',

 and set in 2000 acres of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown's handiwork,

 that may not be that far from the truth.


Having feasted eyes on such finery

we visit Melton Mowbray, where it's Market Day.

You might like to visit the Dickinson and Morris Pork Pie Shoppe,

and The Melton Cheeseboard before visiting Belvoir Brewery

for a tour and tutored tasting of three of their fine ales.



A final trip to beguiling Easton Walled Gardens

 ensures all appetites are sufficiently satisfied.
