About Ringshall Grange

Ringshall Grange, in Suffolk, is to be found down a long, winding drive, and within a large, medieval moat, which protects the house on all sides.

We are delighted to welcome smaller groups from one support bubble/household, or up to six people from different households, in line with the current COVID-19 guidance. If your group meets this criteria and would like to stay, but might not normally consider such a large property, please do get in touch for bespoke prices. There are affordable options for guests that do not require all the bedrooms. Larger group bookings of up to 23 guests (plus infants) are very welcome for stays from Spring 2021.

The house is a mixture of periods (the earliest parts of the building are Tudor), and is presented as a comfortable family home. It works brilliantly for holidays with family and friends, especially if you’re celebrating something special.

There are 8 bedrooms, which sleep 16 guests comfortably, although you could fit up to 23, depending on who shares a room with whom. There are three large bathrooms.

The reception rooms include a dining room (seating 23), a comfortable salon, with squashy sofas and television, and a games room and ‘Whisky Room’ (which is above the cellar). There is also a kitchen (with two cookers and two dishwashers), and a fabulous Karaoke Room, with the sort of dressing-up box that banishes all inhibitions and brings out the diva in any guest.

Outside, there is a terrace with a gas BBQ and a pizza oven, lots of lovely lawn for silly games, and a hot tub, for even sillier games. Across the moat, you can wander beneath ancient trees and explore the wild-flower meadows. Beyond the vegetable gardens, you’ll find the belvedere – a mound from which you’ll find lovely views of the Suffolk countryside.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“My favourite thing in this house is the Whisky Room, with its open fire and deep Chesterfields. I can imagine relaxing in here after a long walk or big banquet, and sipping the burning warmth of something peaty, gazing into the flames.”

About The Location

Ringshall is between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds, on the East coast. If you’re arriving by train, Needham Market rail station is 4 miles away. There’s also Stowmarket, at 5 miles (London’s Liverpool Street is 90 minutes away), or there’s Ipswich train station, 11 miles away (and takes 65 minutes from London’s Liverpool Street.)

Things To Do

There’s lots to do in the surrounding area, and walkers will be particularly pleased with the amount of rambling. The house is within reach of Cambridge, for a city day out, or the Norfolk and Southwold coasts are only an hour’s drive if you fancy a picnic on the beach.

The management team looking after the house are pretty hands-on, and can help you arrange any special activities suitable for large groups, both on and off-site (anything from yoga to quad-biking). Do contact the team for further details.

Reviews

Wow, love this place. Incredible manor house in a beautiful rural setting, renovated and landscaped with the most thoughtful and creative eye - a real pleasure to explore and luxuriate in. Whatever your needs (family with little ones / chilled grownup escape / partying the weekend away) the lovely host Laura seems to have thought of everything to make it as easy as possible to relax, cook, hang out, play and have loads of fun. Can't wait to go back.

We had a lovely weekend here in February. The house was just perfect for our Group. We made good use of the hot tub, pizza oven, fancy dress and all the facilities. The house is beautiful and really well equipped; we would have loved to have stayed for longer.
