Bruisyard Hall is a beautiful house in the heart of the Suffolk countryside - the perfect retreat to the country.

This house is no longer listed on Landed Houses. Please search to find an active property.

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.”

About The Location

Bruisyard is outside the town of Saxmundham, which is well-served by train.There is plenty to do in the area, such as beaches at Aldeburgh and Southwold, historic Dunwich – the city under the sea; Minsmere Nature Reserve, Sutton Hoo Viking Burial site and many others. Nearby are golf courses, sailing centres and riding stables.

Things To Do

There’s a wide range of activities that can be arranged within the house, from a simple (friendly) billiards competition to wine-tasting, murder-mystery, right through to hot-air ballooning. There’s also clay pigeon and archery, and no end of fabulous woodland and parkland to play in.

Bruisyard Hall suits weddings, special celebrations, family holidays and reunions of friends. It is also ideal for corporate and business use.

Weddings

You can either have a country wedding in Bruisyard’s magnificent barn, or something smaller and more formal in the hall itself. The barn has a capacity of 140 for the ceremony and dining.

The Civil Ceremony Licenseoffers several places to choose, from which to say your vows.

Country Sports

Fishing – trout lake (please bring your own tackle and rods).

We had our wedding here on 20 January 2018 - we rented the hall and the barns for the weekend . Having all our close family and friends stay at the hall with us made the weekend even more special. Friday night supper for 30 kicked the weekend off well ! The wedding day was amazing - Bruisyard take care of everything you could wish for and more . The venue is stunning , food and drink wonderful too. Two weeks on, both us and and all our guests are still buzzing about what an amazing day it was . Truly the best day of our lives. Bruisyard also pointed us in the direction of some great suppliers #kittyscakes #moatfarmflowers #jamesdavidsonphotography. We cannot recommend this place highly enough for anyone considering it for their wedding . We'd just love to do it all over again !!

We recently got married at Bruisyard on 23rd December. Our wedding was like a fairy tale come true. All guests commented on beautiful the barn was and how smoothly the day ran. The hall is also fantastic and perfect for all the family to stay. Both our wedding breakfast and the drop off food at the hall was incredible and all the staff at Bruisyard were amazing, calm and made us feel at ease. Rhea, our event planner, was very helpful in the lead up to the wedding answering all our questions and ensuring we had everything we wanted. We wish we could do it all over again and will definitely book another stay at Bruisyard in the future. Xx

Booked Bruisyard hall for my birthday celebrations and it didn't disappoint. The house itself is fabulous for large groups, from all the beautifully decorated bedrooms to the kitchen facilities and all the different spaces to relax and enjoy spending time with friends. I can't recommend this place enough and hope to visit again one day soon!

This place is truly unbelievable . From the moment we arrived on the Friday morning through to leaving on the Monday , the Bruisyard team helped to ensure Matthew and Lauren's wedding will be remembered by the 120 plus guests for a long long time to come. The actual wedding day could not have been better, the registrar, the photographer, the catering , the band etc etc were all Suberin. No hesitation at all in recommending this place - you will never forget it!!

We had 2 nights at the breathtaking Hall and held our wedding day in the beautiful barn on the 30/08/17. When we initially viewed the barn almost 2 years prior we knew it was the place we wanted to have our special day, then when we went to view the hall it confirmed to us it was the one! The hall impressed our guests that we had stay with us to say the least. Everything was to an outstanding standard. I had hair and make up come to the house the morning of the wedding which eliminated any stress for me. The day before the wedding we decorated the barn ourselves which added to the whole experience and we were able to give it our personal touch. The barn itself is a wonderful bright, airy blank canvas with quirks to catch the eye! The team were so lovely and helpful throughout our experience. Any small or particular question we had we felt it was respected and answered as well as it could be. We had a fully vegetarian menu which was outstanding. We had a private menu tasting before the wedding and chose our menu ourselves which was so special and tasty!The soufflé was a highlight for me! We had a pleasant experience having our wedding at Bruisyard and will look back at it with fond memories! X

Recently stayed here for my best friends wedding and WOW what a stunning place. The building was absolutely beautiful along with its peaceful and breathtaking surroundings. Every room was of high standard and it was so special to have so many friends and family together in one place. The staff during the wedding and throughout the weekend were great, very attentive, polite and approachable, nothing was too much bother. Everyone felt so comfortable all weekend it was a truly incredible experience/weekend enhanced thanks to this venue.

I would only recommend this wedding venue to people who like somewhere that is organised, beautiful, huge, cosy, fun, great for all ages, accommodating, friendly, doesn't need lots of decorating, best staff running it, chilled out, classy, quintessentially English countryside, manicured, relaxed, and overall perfect..... Otherwise, it's really not for you

We have just returned from the most magical wedding weekend at Bruisyard Hall & Barn. Serena and her team were fantastic, their hard work and organisation made the day run like clockwork allowing us to relax and enjoy ourselves. They really did make our wedding the most perfect time for us and our family and friends. The actual wedding itself went over and above our expectations in so many ways, the friendly staff, the food, the beautiful surroundings, the weather! It all made for an incredible day and one we have so many happy memories from. We had a huge amount of compliments from our guests about the fantastic venue, both the barn and the hall. This was so lovely to hear as we completely fell in love with Bruisyard Hall & Barn the first time we came to look round. The barn was perfect for what we wanted from our wedding but the hall just made it. Our family and friends who stayed with us over the weekend were blown away by the hall. We feel very lucky to have had such a great time and we would certainly recommend Bruisyard Hall & Barn to others.

We had our wedding at Bruisyard Hall in April this year and it was truly perfect. We were having a hard time finding exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We knew we wanted it to be a bit different, we just weren't sure how. Until we found Bruisyard. We booked the Hall from Friday – Monday, with our wedding taking place on the Saturday morning in the beautiful Entrance Hall, surrounded by our family. Having such a large venue and so many bedrooms we were able to have our immediate family and closest friends stay with us for the weekend, and we and all of our guests felt so at home due to this and the nature of the property. It is huge but somehow cosy. The accommodation in the area allowed more friends to stay locally and join us for more than one day, which was ideal. All of the staff we encountered – Tom, Serena, Nikki – were all very friendly and helpful. We were able to treat the place like our own, we self-catered, we rented a bouncy castle and had all sorts of indoor and outdoor games (some already provided, some our own) to keep our guests entertained. All in all we had a fantastic, memorable weekend, it was exactly what we wanted and we couldn't have asked for it to go any better – we had several guests ask if we could book it again next year for our anniversary!!

Bruisyard hall is the most magical place on earth ! Albeit I'm feeling fairly biased as my new husband and I are still on cloud nine since our beautiful wedding on Wednesday. This place is really what dreams are made of! From the outstanding accommodation at the hall to the stunning barn in which we were wed! The staff are exceptional and so professional, nothing was too much trouble and our every whim was perfectly catered for! Our wedding went off without a hitch and we had an abundance of positive feedback from our guests. We would highly recommend Bruisyard Hall & Barn to anyone looking for the most perfect country wedding venue. We had the best day of our lives, if only we could re-live it all over again !

We had the wedding of our dreams here a couple of weeks ago. Serena and her team are amazing, the food was incredible and exactly how we wanted it - we had so many compliments from people saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had. Having the place to ourselves for 3 days was so special, being able to share our weekend with friends and family. Thank you so much Bruisyard!!

What a venue!! We got married here in May. People are still telling me how beautiful and perfect the venue is. The fact you can turn your wedding day into a wedding weekend by adding the hall on for all your nearest and dearest to stay in was what sold it for us. Serena and her team were amazing. Right from the minute we booked up until the day of the wedding.Serena was my bridal guardian angel. She is so professional and nothing is a problem. Serena is on hand all day she was even working behind the bar at one point so our guests weren't waiting for a drink she clearly loves her job and so would I working at this venue. The food was delicious and the staff were fantastic. You will not regret booking this as your wedding venue.

Amazingly beautiful venue at a very reasonable price. This is a hidden gem in the suffolk countryside. We stayed in the hall for two nights with our family and friends for our wedding yesterday. We could not have dreamed of a better wedding day. We had amazing sunny weather yesterday for our wedding. Our wedding was the most perfect day and this is definitely down to Serena and the Bruisyard team. Serena managed our day start to finish from little requests, getting peoole in the right place, ensuring everything ran smoothly and Serena could not have been more accomodating and certainly made us feel like planning a wedding is easy! All of the team are lovely and make the day and stay very special. The food and drink was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. All of our family and friends loved Bruisyard and I think we will be returning to stay in the hall for a family break. This is certainly a very special venue for weddings offering a level of privacy and beauty which other venues just cannot compete with. An added benefit which is fantastic, is that this venue is dog friendly which is great for a real family break and wedding experience! Hopefully we will see the team soon! Crystal & Jon

Wow! We've just had our wedding at this venue and stayed at the Hall for two night. I can't praise the team at Bruisyard hall enough. The bridal and groom party all stayed at the hall and everyone was just in awe of how beautiful the Hall was, to the team being so attentive and most importantly, Serena. The amount of attention to detail was incredible, everything run so smoothly, Serena was always there to help, to make sure everything was going to plan. Honestly, it was faultless - a true asset to the team. A truly exceptional place, your team are brilliant and all so hard working, lovely and friendly- just incredible. I could keep going on because the whole thing was just perfect. We were unfortunate to have my nan have a fall at the barn, however yet again, they went beyond our expectations. The owner of the hall was at the hall within minutes to check if my nan was alright, the team were all there, to help. They don't just do what their job title is, they go up and beyond. Thankyou so much for helping create such a precious day for us. Out of this world, thankyou from the bottom of our hearts � Mr & Mrs Gridley �

Exceptional! The quiet, the scenery, the luxuary rooms, the enormous kitchen, the pool table etc are just perfect. Our wedding was so seemless. We saw a white owl hunt and other birds of prey fly over. Everyone said how relaxed and comfortable they felt. The beds are so comfortable. Needless to say I will stay again! Thank you so much Bruisyard hall & staff you made our day!

What a venue! We were married here last year at the end of July and it was truly amazing. Very spacious with amazing grounds, was perfect having the ceremony and reception all in one place (and much easier for all concerned!). Serena and her team looked after us superbly, nothing was too much trouble. The house is amazing with hidden secrets it would seem around every corner, and was very much welcomed by several of the family and in laws after a very boozy day and night! Would not have changed a thing, and if you're lucky enough to be in the position to consider this an option (also a massive thank you to my father-in-law!!!!) I urge you to do so. A perfect start to the rest of our lives!

Bruisyard Hall, Saxmundham, Suffolk IP17 2EJ Bruisyard Hall stands tall amongst its flat Suffolk surroundings; surprisingly so for a house that had parts built some 600 years ago. The driveway and aspect are impressive and there is most definitely a feeling of grandeur surrounding the property. Inside it has high ceilings and large sparsely-decorated rooms which have a great atmosphere when filled with people. The kitchen is large and well-equipped, no Aga but plenty of prep space and a large table. Off the kitchen is a games room with TV and billiards to one side and a dining room to the other. The dining room has plenty of seating and long table which is a more recent addition to the house - easily disguised by a table cloth! The main sitting room has three sofas and a working fireplace, and there is also a smaller overflow sitting room. Upstairs the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. As with most old houses bathrooms are far fewer in number than the bedrooms but the changeover of one bathroom to a shower-room avoids backlogs in the morning rush. Of particular note is the master bedroom which is substantial and has a wonderful countryside view. There are two bedrooms on the second floor, one of which has four single beds and would be great for children. For full plans click on the floor plans on the Bruisyard Hall website. All in all the house is perfect for groups that want space to run around and a stay in a grand country house. It does not pretend to have been built yesterday and extras like a swimming pool are absent - but that somehow adds to its charm. The visitors' book glows with compliments and the owner responds to emails quickly and is helpful.
