This house was amazing for my 30th birthday weekend. The decor is incredible and having the hot tub was great. The best thing has to be the fancy dress room! Highly recommend and will certainly be back some point soon. Thanks again Laura for being such a good host.

Had a wonderful 3 days with friends at Ringshall Grange last weekend. A stunning Manor House in a beautiful setting, the decor is amazing, you can tell the owners have put a lot of thought into it and spared no expense to make it feel luxurious, yet homely at the same time. I especially loved the vintage inspired wallpapers. It was the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all (the hot tub being the first place to start!) and have fun with friends. Our children had the BEST time ever, exploring the house and grounds, they were never short of anything to do and especially enjoyed the fancy dress room (ok we did too!). On Sunday, we rounded off our weekend with a fantastic roast chicken dinner, followed by cheese, both sourced from the incredibly friendly local farm shops. What more could you want? Actually, I want to live here, please?!!!!

A large group of us stayed from Friday to Sunday. I was so looking forward to our stay and wasn't disappointed. I was totally enchanted by this beautiful house and its surroundings. Laura, the owner, popped in to check if we were all ok and couldn't have been nicer. The house is so well equipped; from crockery, cutlery, glassware and towels to fancy dress and loo roll! (The latter two being very important!). What really took my breath away was the renovation work the house has undergone and the AMAZING decor - so well thought out and a brilliant mix of old and new with a keen eye for design. Thank you, can't wait to visit again x

Stayed here back in December and loved every moment of it. The owners have thought of everything you would need for a fun weekend away with friends or family - we had singalongs around the piano, opened Christmas presents by the fire and the dressing up room was amazing! We were already planning our return trip in the summer as we left on the Sunday :)

Lovely property, in beautiful grounds, set in Suffolk rural countryside. This venue has every amenity you could desire for a fun weekend. Owners Laura and Stephen are the coolest cats you could meet, whos primary concern is you and your party having fun.... An unusual trait for people who own such a sumptuous home.... All was explained when being nosey I happened upon a book about an amazing place in Somerset. Inside the front cover were warm words from a friend, talking about Stephen and Lauras first meeting. They met at Glastonbury.... Go to Ringshall grange, you will have fun xxx

I spent New Years Eve at Ringshall Grange and was blown away by the property and facilities. The property is located in a stunning setting and the building itself is grand but homely. The owners have restored it to a very high standard and have thoughtfully added several new facilities (hot tub, pizza oven, games room to name but a few) to enhance the experience and make your stay feel really special. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Ringshall to anyone looking for the British country home experience.

I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate nye with my friends and the weekend could not have been more perfect. The owners (who are super helpful, professional and friendly) seem to have thought of every possible way to make the house an absolute pleasure to stay in! Hot tub, pool table, darts board, stunning (massive) bedrooms, everything that you could possibly want/need in a kitchen, speakers in each room, karaoke, dressing up room.. the list goes on! And all of this surrounded by beautiful countryside and so much private land to stroll around. 18 of us stayed here without it being anywhere near a squeeze. With so many fun features in the house, we were fully entertained all weekend and would definitely return. Cannot recommend this property enough.

When I originally booked Ringshall Grange back in October for my birthday it was on a total whim after a friend of Laura's posted it on Facebook and I am SO glad I took that leap of faith. The house is a magical place and because of this it's quite difficult to put into words. While its a beautiful big house with a great sense of history and grandeur, it somehow retains a cosy, homely feel. You don't feel scared to touch or use anything... Everything is tastefully decorated and in keeping with the surroundings, nothing's too OTT (except for the glitter walls on then Karaoke room!) and the grounds are beautiful. I think it's because of this homely welcoming vibe, you immediately feel right at home. Our weekend there was definitely one of the best weekends ever and one which the group will never forget. I would (and have) wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody looking for a fun weekend away. Do what I did and take the plunge, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again to Laura and Steven for everything and see you again in 2017!

This place is truly awesome. The house is full of character and charm. Stylish yet extremely comfortable. Each room is unique with fantastic design touches. The kitchen is perfect for a large group and has everything you need. The grounds are beautiful. The addition of a dressing up and karaoke room is the icing on the cake. This place rocks and we will definitely return. Thanks for an amazing time.

My family and I have just spent a truly magical Christmas at Ringshall Grange, infact probably the best big family get together we've ever had. The house and grounds are obviously spectacular, you can see that from the pictures, but what you can't tell is how warm, comfortable and generous the house is - it has a really brilliant vibe and is such a fabulous party house. Every room is incredibly stylish but also deliciously comfortable. Laura and Stephen have done an amazing job and they couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating hosts. Everything we needed was sorted and dealt with quickly and we were left not one but two beautifully decorated trees plus gifts for our family to enjoy. The biggest trouble with Ringshall Grange is you can't bear to leave! We will definitely book again, thank you!

What a weekend! Ringshall Grange is just perfect for a fun holiday retreat. We spent a long weekend at the house and it was filled with laughter, roaring log fires, happy people, fancy dress, music, food, long walks, home cooked food and lots more. All perfectly hosted by Laura and Stephen, who made us feel so welcomed, and were on hand to help us with anything we needed. We'll definitely be coming back and recommending the house to others.

Laura and Stephen are natural hosts. Both are very creative and have a fantastic ability to style the venue effortlessly but with amazing results. It's a gorgeous property - I love it because it can be a traditional "Country Manor House" one day or a "Fairy Laden Magical, Hipster adventure the next . It's a canvas ( and a half) for parties, seminars, family gatherings or whatever you need it to be. I've known Laura for years and nothing phases her - she is one of life's natural party planners and our party didn't disappoint ! Thank you xxx

Ringshall Grange, it’s hard to actually put into words how magical this place really is. I would suggest you book it and find out. The house is delightful and the grounds are beautiful. We spent a number of days there for our company annual trip and it exceeded above and beyond any requirements we had envisaged. We have already started to agree on our date for our next annual trip to visit. Laura and Stephen the owners were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much for them. It’s obvious how much they both love the house with deep passion and care about their guests. Great food, amazing house, wonderful hosts – ideal for family/friends/work trips! This house will become a destination spot soon, so get in quick if you want to experience a truly perfect break! See you soon Ringshall Grange! Love x

We came to Ringshall Grange on a work event, bringing our entire team, about 35 people. The whole two days were fantastic. We ran a team session on the first morning and then set about having some fun. Laura and Steven have created a wonderful place, welcoming, surrounded by beautiful countryside with plenty of space to hang out, eat and generally relax, both inside the amazing house and in the grounds. It was so good, I have booked the house to come back with family. Thanks Laura and Steven, looking forward to seeing you again soon!

We highly recommend this beautiful and historically very interesting venue. In September we held our wedding ceremony, with 125 guests, at Ringshall Grange - if you want a peaceful and stress-free experience this is it. Set in beautiful grounds the owners, Laura and Steve, have created a very special environment that includes woodland, open fields, super views and fascinating accommodation. With Laura and Steve we worked with local businesses and we found everyone prepared to spend time with us to ensure our wedding day ran smoothly and it did! Don't rush this experience it's worth spending a few days there.i

We had a wonderful weekend at RG. Steve and Laura have done a stunning job of making this place into a home from home which is equally opulent and comfortable. There's so much to explore we spent hours getting lost, and every room is decorated beautifully. We went for my 40th, but it would be ideal for stag/hen parties, weddings, family get togethers etc etc.

20 of us stayed at Ringshall Grange in early September, a last getaway before the Summer holidays disappeared. 11 adults and 9 children gathering from London, Essex, Sussex and Berkshire. The weekend was relaxed, fun and unique because of this unusual house. Laura and Steve's vision comes through very clearly, and the idiosyncratic joining of Tudor, Victorian, Edwardian and millennial worlds is exciting. It's a cosy place, yet it feels like you could easily be in a film, a murder mystery or at an aristocrats party. The grounds are huge and perfect for an explore or a runaround. As an amateur gardener, my envy of the onsite allotment was not convincingly contained. The children were in their element with a dedicated fancy dress/karaoke cubbyhole and the chance to watch Peppa Pig from a gold chaise lounge. Oh, how the other half live. We bought fresh, local ingredients from the farm next door and the rest we had delivered by Sainsbury's without any fuss (and as it's a new address, £20 off our 'first order'. Everyone's a winner. Ish). The adults somehow managed to endure the hot tub, the bar area (cocktails, poker etc) and debating the intricacies of modern education policy and a current failure in British politics whilst drinking bourbon in the whiskey room. Yes, a room for just this activity. Loads to do in the area too - some us took the scenic route to Southwold and others walked to a local vegetarian pub. Laura and Steve went above and beyond - helpful, flexible and generous throughout. This is a special place for all sorts of reasons and all sorts of groups of people. I know that some of our party are already planning to re-book, and I'm looking forward to visiting again one day soon Wholeheartedly recommended.
