DESCRIPTION

Please mention Landed Houses when enquiring and we’ll give you a free case of Champagne upon arrival!

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 quite 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 lights), 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 License offers several places to choose, from which to say your vows.

Country Sports

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

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.

Incredible location for our wedding. Team at Bruisyard were perfect and exceeded all our expectations ( Serena is a legend) The house is stunning, comfortable and had everything we ever needed and far more. We searched Suffolk high and low and Bruisyard was easily the best. The absolute perfect 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!

Such a lovely venue. So calm and pretty. Fantastic views and the house is an elegant home from home where you can relax with your friends and family and prepare for the big day. The bridal room has perfect light for doing makeup and plenty of space. I love working here!

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.
