Bruisyard Hall, Saxmundham, Suffolk, IP17 2EJ
Bruisyard Hall is a big, comfortable house, sleeping 24 in 12 bedrooms with 10 bathrooms (6 of which are en-suite). Downstairs are kitchens, dining room, games room and a television room. The Hall retains its historic atmosphere with oak staircases, a priest’s hole, a “sweet-toned bell”, which although ancient, still peals beautifully.
The house sits in landscaped gardens, and there is a converted barn (perfect for parties) next to the main house, with two further bedrooms (sleeping an extra 4, should you wish).
Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature
“I’m very fond of Bruisyard, I know it well, and have to say its barn really is something to behold. It’s a timber-framed Suffolk affair (though with under-floor heating and decent lighting), and the house tends to use it for weddings or special parties. I also love the carriage drive – long enough to appreciate the first view of the house.”
