“We treat the Stable Yard House like our home, as it once was our home. This is where we first lived after getting married and is decorated in our personal style, with many of our paintings and furniture in situ mixed with antiques and contemporary features” - James & Joanna Fennell

The Stable Yard sits in the grounds of the historic Burtown House. Surrounded by gardens, the old stable yard which was built in the early 18th century once housed the horses and stable men who facilitated the travel movements of the family, one side for horses and grooms and the other for carriages and traps. More recently the stable yard has become a beautiful garden with tall lavender and potted plants, facing south it can feel like you have landed in Provence. Comprising of a three bedroom house and a light filled studio apartment it is the perfect place for family gatherings or groups of friends of up to eight. We look forward to welcoming you.

Food and drink

Food & Drink

With a farm-to-fork philosophy our menus reflect what is happening in our gardens, showcasing the best of what has been harvested that day. We only ever use seasonal produce on our menus, utilising the bounty from our walled garden, polytunnels and field scale plots and the surrounding farm. Vegetables and herbs will generally take centre stage, supplemented by protein from organic farmers and reputable fisheries. Our packages include brunch and/or a three course dinner in The Green Barn. There is also in house dining available from our Stable Yard menu available Sunday - Thursday.

The gardens at Burtown are made up of several areas, including large herbaceous borders, shrubberies, a rock garden, a yew walk divided by a pergola, a sundial garden, a walled kitchen garden, an old orchard, a more formal stable yard garden and a large woodland garden surrounded on all sides by water. We understand that exercise is very important to one’s wellbeing and there are plenty of opportunities to release your endorphins here at Burtown. Guests can take leisurely walks across our 160 acre farm, wild flower meadows, two water courses and soon to be lake. If running is your thing there are plenty of routes that James and Joanna enjoy and will happily point you inthe right direction. There are cattle, donkeys, hens and dogs on the estate. Well behaved pets are always welcome at Burtown.
