DESCRIPTION

Available from April 2018.

Boxted Hall is a splendid country manor house near Bury St Edmunds, in Suffolk. The front door is reached across a moat, over a beautifully romantic stone bridge.

The house is ideal for weekend parties with family and friends, and great for weddings or special celebrations. The lay-out of the reception rooms and bedrooms means it also works well for corporate use.

The house sleeps up to 26 guests in 13 bedrooms, 9 of which are en-suite (the last four bedrooms are in the attic, and share two shower rooms).

Downstairs, there’s the Hall, which seats 26 (and is perfect for dancing), a dining room (which seats 16), an oak-panelled library (complete with squashy armchairs and lamps and a secret door), and an elegant drawing room with a grand piano. There’s also a big, well-equipped kitchen and a games room, in which to play billiards. It’s the games room that’s behind the secret door (happily).

The house is set within 250 acres of Suffolk parkland, and the gardens offer lots of space for wandering and playing. The River Glem meanders through part of the walled garden, and there are two summer houses in which to seek shade or shelter, or to hold secret assignations). Energetic guests can play a few games of tennis, or clop their way around the croquet lawn, and the less energetic can float in the pool, beneath the orchard wall.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“There’s a real sense of continuity and agelessness about this house. The family are apparently only one of three such families in England to have lived in a house for over five hundred years. It feels like a happy, relaxed place, well-used to guests and parties and having fun.”

About the Location

Boxted Hall is about two hours’ drive from the middle of London, on the A134. The closest railway station is Sudbury, about twenty minutes away from the house.

House History

The house was built in 1392 by Sir John Poley, where once stood an older house. The moat dates from this time and is still crossed by a bridge dating from the 11th century. In 1820, a family member added two wings, and re-faced the house with a red brick facade. Inside, the main hall still has its beautiful original oak panelling.
