About Burloes Hall

When Katharine & Nicole, two friends with their love of walking their gorgeous dogs and who had conquered The Great North Run together, decided to set up the business, they agreed on three rules:

  1. They would only have one function a week – they wanted the occasion to be special, not part of a production line
  2. Delivering a personal service would always be paramount – their focus would be on the joy of the experience, not the bottom line
  3. Integrity and honesty would always underpin their business values – no ifs, no buts.

Seven years later, nothing has changed. You will always deal with the principals of the business, supported by their team of specialists.


Burloes, where ‘special’ really does mean ‘special’.

A Rich History

Burloes Hall, a beautiful Queen Anne Style country house, is set in almost 1,000 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside and farmland.

The estate, which is owned by Sir Francis & Lady Katharine Newman was originally bought by Francis Newman’s grandfather, Sir Cecil Newman, in 1923.

Situated on the Greenwich Meridian, the Estate is near the crossroads of two ancient roads, the Icknield Way and Ermine Street.

Unfortunately, the original house burnt down in 1929 but, building it allowed the family to extend and modernise their home. The Hall was completed in 1937.

During the Second World War, Sir John Mills the film and theatre actor was stationed at RAF Barkway and dined regularly with the Newman family.
