Burghley House was the country home built by Sir William Cecil, Lord Burghley, who was the Lord High Treasurer to Elizabeth. The house is located just within Cambridgeshire, England. The main part of the house has 35 major rooms, and 80 lesser rooms and numerous halls, corridors, bathrooms and service areas. In one room (the Pagoda room) hangs a portrait of Elizabeth I (as well as the Cecil family, Henry VIII and Oliver Cromwell). Now that's what I call a country house!
