A Grade I listed Elizabethan manor house, Hintlesham Hall stands in 175 acres of rolling Suffolk countryside. It is as much a private stately home as an hotel, and perfect for a relaxing country break. It is, however, every inch a fine hotel, ranked AA 4-star, a Small Luxury Hotel of the World, recommended by Condé Nast Johansens and with No 1 Hotel status in the area.
Hintlesham has all the spacious living rooms you expect in a stately home—drawing room, library, a grand salon for dinner, garden room, pool, gymnasium and large bedrooms, with window seats, open fireplaces, vases of fresh-cut flowers to scent the air, and, surrounding the Hall, a private Park. The 33 bedrooms and suites are decked out with fine fabrics and antiques, and the welcome is equally fine: friendly yet professional, with delicious food to make your stay complete.
Hintlesham is near Ipswich, which is itself a hidden gem among country towns: it is charming, steeped in history, and within a few short miles you can be on the unspoilt Suffolk coast or under the wide skies of Constable Country. Local houses and gardens include Ickworth, Gainsborough’s House, Somerleyton and Kentwell Hall, and The Queen’s Estate at Sandringham is a two-hour drive. Back at the hotel, there are acres of grounds in which to walk in peace and tranquility, and an adjoining championship golf course.
The Large Principal Doubles are spacious rooms with sitting areas in the main house and courtyard and have garden and courtyard views, king beds and en suite bathrooms.
