Welcome to Burwell House

Burwell House has been a fantastic venue for a wide variety of residential and non-residential courses for fifty years.

Providing a venue for an array of catered and self-catered, taught and self-led, residential and day courses, for children, young people and adults, we offer a flexible service to fulfil a very wide range of groups’ requirements.

Built in the late 1700’s and owned by Cambridgeshire County Council since 1965, Burwell House retains the atmosphere of a large family home, whilst catering for the needs of today’s customers.

Downstairs the house has 2 lounges, conservatory, seminar rooms, TV studio and craft studio – a variety of internal spaces to use in a variety of ways.  Upstairs, our 11 comfortable bedrooms range from twin-bedded rooms to larger dormitories, sleeping up to 60 people in total.  All bedrooms have access to toilets and showers and all bed linen is provided.

Three acres of landscaped gardens, including many specimen trees, an orchard, meadows, a wildlife pond and a wide array of sculptures complement the house in offering a relaxed and informal setting for groups of all ages and backgrounds.

For groups requiring catering, our home-cooked food has an fantastic reputation, with our experienced cooks taking pride in the food they produce.

Situated in the village of Burwell, on the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border, we have excellent transport links to the whole of East Anglia and beyond via the A14 and the M11.
