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.

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.

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.

We loved our stay at Ringshall. It's perfect for a big group special occasion. Loved the features like roll top baths and open fires, fabulous kitchen with everything you need to cook. Karaoke and fancy dress room was a sure hit! Lovely grounds and lots of freedom to explore for the kids. Hot tub was well used too! Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here last weekend for a hen and the venue was really perfect. The house is in beautiful grounds, and the house is absolutely amazing. All the decor is really cool - all the bedrooms have their own theme. It feels really spacious inside so there’s room to hang out in lots of different spaces - we did a big dinner in the dining room and used the whiskey room for games. There’s a great hot tub, loads of fancy dress costumes and a bar area. The house is honestly enough entertainment in itself without having to worry about lots of activities! Laura was also so kind and helpful - helping us find caterers, receiving a shop for us and always texting straight back with answers to questions. The house is all so thoughtful - all those things that you normally run out of like towels and toilet roll you never would as there was so many! It was also totally stocked with kitchen equipment and really nice products in all the bathrooms. We are all incredibly grateful for our stay and couldn’t recommend it more.

We went to Ringshall Grange this weekend and we had the BEST time! The house is absolutely amazing, warm, cosy and decorated to perfection. The WALLPAPERS!!! Out of this world. With 14 adults, plus 7 babies, we were all a little apprehensive about what we needed to take with us to entertain the babies, and keep us all fed and watered, but we needn't have worried at all. Laura and Steve have equipped the house with EVERYTHING you might possibly need for a great weekend...we had enough cots and high chairs for them all, we cooked up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen, the little ones practically entertained themselves with the wonderful collection of toys, games, the mums had a few hours off soaking in the fabulous hot tub, and the dads gave their best Luigi impression cooking up some home made pizzas in the wood smoke pizza oven. DREAMY! We couldn't recommend it enough, we had an absolute blast and our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating. Other than our booze and food, we didn't need to think about anything. Thank you Laura and Steve, it was the perfect weekend and we will be back next year!

We have spent a splendid weekend at Ringshall Grange two weeks ago. The house is spacious and the interior design is remarkable. It seems like every details has been looked after carefully and tastefully. All the necessities were plentiful available. The house feels like a real family home. The grounds are well kept. While playing croquet on the lawn and jeu de boules we were thrown back to times the house originates from. We feel the need to particularity mention the warm welcome we engaged of the owners. Laura assisted us organising our weekend and rendered useful information. We are very thankful and hope to return one day.

We just spent the weekend at Ringshall Grange celebrating my friend's hen do and it was honestly perfect! All the bedrooms were beautiful and set up ready to go - including an extra mattress put into one of the rooms to accommodate a couple of extra people (25 altogether). The kitchen is set up with everything you could possibly need, pots, plates, bowls, glasses - everything!! The hot tub was a definite highlight along with the karaoke room! The grounds are stunning and we were still finding bits we hadn't seen by the end of the weekend - would love to come back and stay for longer! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Laura in person but she left the keys in the lock box for us and was messaging us throughout the weekend to make sure our stay was perfect. Could not recommend this place more, it was perfect for the hen but would also love to come back here on a big family holiday - there was loads of stuff for kids too!

We stayed (party of 21) for a family get together over the recent bank holiday weekend just gone and had an amazing time. Laura was an attentive host who set up the rooms as requested and had so much flexibility with in the house to make you feel completely at home. Her kitchen was Amazing!!! It felt like home and was full of pots and pans like home! The bedroom slippers were a nice touch as was the cheeky Prosecco upon arrival... we all felt so at home because it IS HER HOME! Amazing stay Laura and stephen I have a whole bag of fancy dress I’m going to send you because that was our highlight!!! Xxx

Had the best time at the stunning Ringshall Grange. The owners of the house go out of their way to ensure all your needs are met. From the individual interior design of every gorgeous room, to the fancy dress room, the pizza oven, the gorgeous grounds, where the owners ensure they feed the local wildlife, the list goes on... it’s a really special place, and a lot of love has been put into restoring this little gem. Perfect for a lovely weekend away, will definitely be going back!

We held my sister’s hen do at Ringshall Grange and had the most fabulous weekend there. Everything had been thought of in the house, the decor is fabulous and all of the hens loved it. We had such a great time pizza making using the outdoor pizza oven, using the hot tub, playing games outside and inside (it’s the best house for a game of sardines!), using the karaoke room, and holding a sit-down formal dinner there. Laura was on hand for brilliant advice on caterers and just about every other supplier we might need. I hope to return again one day for another brilliant weekend.

Just on our way home from an amazing weekend here! The photos and descriptions don't do it justice!! The little extras and generosity of the place is immense!! Everywhere you look there's more to see. Would most definitely recommend and would love to go back!!

Just had the most amazing 40th birthday weekend at the grange. What can I say....absolutely perfect!!! The house is fantastic and so well equipped! Laura has literally thought of everything. The products in the bathroom are lovely, the pantry stocked with so much, more towels and toilet rolls than I have ever seen! My friends and I had the best time, the karaoke room for well used, as did every other room in the house! I would love to come back again some time. Keep up the fabulous work!!! Miss you Ringshall Grange ....and we only came back on Monday! Lol

Just spent a fantastic Christmas at Ringshall Grange. There were 21 guests altogether and you didn’t feel on top of one another at all. Lots of rooms to spread out, each of which was beautifully and stylishly decorated. Despite its ‘grandness’ it still managed to feel homely which was perfect for our family Christmas. It had every amenity you would need for a home from home, I look forward to coming back!

Amazing place! Amazing hosts. Laura and team couldn’t have been more helpful, the house is amazing and we had the best time. Thank you! Xx

We had a wonderful weekend and so did all of our group. We were all astonished at how beautifully the house has been done up - especially the bedrooms and bathrooms (the plant and cactus bedroom was v impressive!). Additionally, the extras - the hot tub, pizza oven, games room and dress up/ karaoke room - really made the weekend and were very popular with everyone. Laura, the owner, sent us texts during the weekend with instructions, which we found very helpful, and her replies to emails were fast and informative. The only negative point was the number of flies in the kitchen, though the owners provided food covers and fly spray, and were very responsive and helpful with suggestions on how to keep them out. Overall I couldn't have found a better place for a celebration weekend and we were all very sad to leave on the Sunday. It felt like we hadn't had enough time to fully appreciate the house.

Love this place so much. Spent last weekend there with my kids and some friends. Hot tub, pizza oven, fancy dress, games room, whiskey room, really wish I could have stayed longer. Also some beautiful country walks. Really looking forward to going again soon

Had the most amazing couple of sunny days in Ringshall Grange last weekend! What a place to enjoy quality time with your friends and family - we made use of the fully equipped kitchen (and herbs/veg from the garden!) outdoor pizza oven/BBQ, hot tub and beautifully decorated lounge and bedrooms. The kids loved the lawn games, books and fancy dress room. Will be coming back again!

We visited Ringshall Grange as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday with friends. The manor is just perfect for groups. It has everything you could wish for and more for a truly memorable stay! The decor is unique and quirky and every last detail has been carefully considered to ensure you have everything to hand. Laura is the perfect host, nothing ever too much trouble. Thank you so much, we cannot wait for the next occasion to revisit!

Ringshall Grange was the perfect place for our stags to celebrate together for one party packed weekend. It’s perfectly situated in a beautiful location tucked away from anyone else. Lots of dressing up, making fresh pizzas, hot tub action, pool table and a grand banquet room for dining. The place is full of nooks and crannies to catch up for chats around the beautiful house. Laura has been so accommodating and welcoming from our booking to saying goodbye. Already missing the place. Thanks for having us Ringshall Grange!

I had my hen do here this weekend and I can’t even begin to describe how perfect it was! So local to bury and Ipswich and the setting itself was glorious! Even covered in heavy snow! The house was lovely with enough room for all, amazing facilities including the hot tub and dressing up room! The whole stay was perfect- thank you Laura! Xxx

We visited Ringshall Grange for our friends hen doo and had a fab time! Whilst the snow tried to stop us, we made it and it was just magical! The lady could not have been more helpful too. The house was fully equipped and perfect for the weekend, thank you. would love to come back! X

I booked Ringshall Grange for my friends Hen do. From the point of booking and throughout our stay Laura was amazing and couldn’t have been more helpful or lovely if she tried. Our stay was excellent and exceeded every expectation we had for a weekend venue. It is the attention to detail and the quirkiness of the house that makes the stay so unique and enjoyable as well as the beautiful setting. The girls all loved the fancy dress room and the hot tub. Perfect place for a weekend with friends or family. Would definitely recommend!

I had my 30th birthday celebrations at Ringshall Grange and it was one of the best weekends of my life! 20 of us spent three sunshine-filled days at the beautiful house and there was no need (or want) to leave the grounds as we had everything we could ever need. We definitely made the most of the games room/ living room/ dining room/ kitchen/ karaoke room/whiskey room/ all the bedrooms/ all the bathrooms/ the hot tub/ the pizza oven the gardens and even the moat! Laura was also really helpful and quick to respond to any questions, including recommending local caterers and pubs. I would book again in a heartbeat. Can't recommend it enough. Thank you Laura! X

Just back from the most amazing time at Ringshall for our friend's surprise 40th. 20 of us stayed and we all had an incredible time. Laura is the best host, always on call to answer any questions and she went to extra lengths to make sure we all had what we needed right from the beginning of contact. Ringshall is an absolutely incredible manor house, we felt the pictures didn't do it justice. We had so much fun wandering around exploring :) The space was just right to fit so many guests in, with enough room for people wanting to maybe do different things without interrupting each other, but cosy enough to feel like a family get together. The games/fancydress room was a favourite of ours, as was the hearty wholesome kitchen and luxurious bathrooms - lush! Everyone had a fantastic time and we will definitely be returning. Thanks Laura and Stephen for your wonderful hospitality xx

We stayed with 20 friends for 2 days for a 40th birthday. Ringshall is the perfect place for a get-together and every need is catered for from fun and excitement to comfort and convenience. The bedrooms and bathrooms are so beautifully done and its obvious that no expense has been spared in making these areas homely. The kitchen is very well equipped and the dining room is beautiful to sit down in to eat, drink and be merry! The additions of the karaoke and fancy dress area are fantastic and we had a lot of fun in here.

Myself and 20+ friends rented Ringshall Grange for 3 nights to celebrate my 30th in December, and we couldn't have had a better time! The house is spacious, exciting, comfortable and generally perfect for large groups of people having fun. We cooked, drank, danced, played games, went for walks and generally had a terrific time! Laura and Stephen were unbelievably friendly and accommodating. I look forward to coming back here –hopefully on some sort of regular basis! Absolutely perfect.

Ringshall grange is an incredibly beautiful house which I loved celebrating my 30th in. Between the games room, karaoke, croquet lawn, pizza oven and bbq there was so much to do. There were 20 of us and it felt very spacey. The grounds were huge with enough space to run around and play some touch rugby. Dinner room and living room were large to accommodate everyone for eating, drinking and chilling out. Would 100% recommend!

We just had the most fun fantastic wkend at Ringshall Grange group of 18 adults. Beautiful listed building, set in lovely grounds Everything you need is there. Great for adult groups as we were and definitely families too. My profile picture was Saturday cocktail hour in the grange bar which was followed by caterers coming in to serve us all dinner in the grand dining room.. Great value the whole wkend. We all cannot wait to go back!!! �

What an amazing house! My wonderful friends kindly hosted my hen weekend here. The attention to detail in the house is superb with gorgeous interiors and everything you need for a decadent weekend away. I would be very happy to rent out Ringshall Grange for another event or party. Thank you so much Laura and Stephen!

We celebrated my friend's hen do at Ringshall Grange in May, and absolutely loved staying there! What a beautiful spot.... The grounds, the house, the views, the hot tub! All the kitchen and dining-ware we needed to cater for a party of 20 was provided and there was plenty of space leftover for food storage. The second fridge in the games room was a much-needed prosecco store. We particularly appreciated having two cookers and lots of worktop space - and decorated so tastefully. There was a bottle of bubbles and some fruit and veg provided when we arrived, which was a lovely touch. The beds are really comfortable and the rooms a generous size. Again, the decoration has been done very imaginatively, and each bedroom and bathroom really has its own character. Needless to say, the dressing up room and karaoke were a big hit with the hens! I never managed to meet the owners in person, but Laura was helpful, communicative and gracious from start to finish. I would definitely go back and stay here with a large group in the future. Thanks Ringshall Grange! �

we had the best weekend staying here. the house is stunning and caters for everyone. fancy dress, hot tub, pizza oven, karaoke room, games room, footy goals out the back, etc! we didn't want to leave. already trying to plan the next trip back. FIVE STARS!!!!

Absolutely loved spending a friend's birthday weekend at Ringshall Grange. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated, keeping the original old features of the house, yet it has been enhanced with contemporary, sweet kitsch features that work perfectly together. All the bedrooms are spacious and light with themes in each that lend a touch of individuality. A particular highlight was the fancy dress cupboard, with 100 outfits to pick from and the games room and outside barbecue area, complete with hot tub! All in all, I would highly recommend Ringshall Grange for a weekend getaway.

The Performance Solution have just used Ringshall Grange to run a Corporate Coaching Course retreat and the venue is a delight. Plenty of space for stressed executives to get away from the complexity of their worlds. It is comfortable with spacious bedrooms, games room, pizza oven, bar b que, hot tub, acres of fabulous land for walking and enough rooms downstairs to avoid feeling cramped. The kitchen facilities are more than adequate, Sainsbury's and Waitrose delivery so there was no need to leave. The dining room was a great training room and kept the work space away from the relaxation areas. Everyone left renewed and refreshed as well as full of learning. Laura was on hand to check all went to plan and the regular visits from cleaners and gardeners were discrete and not intrusive. The home touches and garden produce were the icing on the cake. We will come again

Just back from an excellent weekend at Ringshall Grange. It was the perfect venue for a large group of friends to celebrate a birthday. I will recommend this house to everyone without hesitation. Wish we were still there. Many thanks to Laura and Stephen for creating a place to share with us all.

Just back home after spending a wonderful weekend at Ringshall celebrating a friends 40th. Laura and Stephen have done an absolutely incredible job of creating a magical destination perfect for group getaways. The house itself has everything you could possibly want - ample beds, massive kitchen with everything you need to cook up a big feast, bbq, pizza oven, games room, karaoke room, hot tub, fancy dress - you name it, it's there! The grounds are magnificent and I couldn't help but notice little touches that would have made it a great trip if we'd had the kids with us too (we were blissfully child free on this occasion!) such as a football pitch/goal, loads of ace toys and board games and a cool den made out of twigs and sticks. Our boys (2 and 5) would have loved exploring the woods around the grange and the house feels like it would be ideal for large groups of families with kids of all ages. I can't recommend the place enough - get it booked!

We had the most amazing time at Ringshall Grange. It was everything and more than what we expected. Laura was the most amazing host to us and accommodated for any extras we needed. The house was absolutely beautiful. Im pretty sure that every single one of us left planning our next visit. I would 100% recommend Ringshall to everyone (just not on the dates we want it!).

I've just got back from a golfing weekend where a group of 19 of us stayed at Ringshall Grange, and we all had such an enjoyable time - the house & grounds are gorgeous!! I absolutely loved the themed bedrooms (the tropical one especially!), and all of the super-stylish decor & coppery accents really gave the venue a plush, yet totally homely, feel. I could quite happily live there myself! :) The golf was terrible (it is such a spiteful game after all...), but the dinner party & BBQs at Ringshall Grange were absolutely superb, and more than made up for a poor golfy performance. Everybody loved the venue & facilities, and I honestly couldn't think of anything (other than a hole-in-one) that would have improved our stay. On top of this, Laura (the owner of this beautiful home) has been more than accommodating from start to finish, and so I owe her a huge thanks for enabling our event happen in the way that it did. I will be wholeheartedly recommending your home as the perfect venue for all sorts of occasions to anybody I hear asking around for suggestions, and I would also like to think that I will be back there at some point for another 'do in the future. Thanks again! Andy

Laura and Stephen have created something really special in Ringshall Grange – the house and grounds are so beautiful and they have decorated it in a way that’s really quirky and cool, but cosy and warm at the same time. We celebrated a 50th Birthday at the house and everyone remarked how fabulous it and the grounds are, and felt completely relaxed and at home as soon as they arrived. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, and there are plenty of common areas to keep everyone entertained - a lovely formal dining room where CateringforSuffolk served us a delicious dinner, a brilliant games room/nightclub where we danced the night away, and a dress up/karaoke room that was full of fab costumes. The kitchen is lovely and also very well equipped - we were blessed with amazing weather so spent much of our time chilling in the garden, cooking pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven and relaxing in the hot tub. At only a couple of hours drive from London the house is in a great location, with grounds stretching as far as the eye can see. Laura was really helpful and accommodating when making the arrangements and gave us a such a warm welcome when we arrived. You can tell that her and Stephen really love the place and genuinely want their guests to enjoy it as much as they do – and that really comes across. This is a wonderful house and we had a fabulous, unforgettable weekend! Highly recommended!

My partner found this wonderful house for my 50th Birthday celebrations last weekend. To say it was the best birthday ever would be a total understatement! From the moment we arrived the fun & relaxation started - it weaves a charming spell. We had a large group with plenty of children but never felt on top of each other. The kids kept themselves entertained going on walks and building dens. The house is large quirky and not to prissy that you can't really chill out - it's a home from home in magnificent surroundings. The caterers Catering For Suffolk William & Sarah did an outstanding job of feeding our large party with amazing delicious food at a reasonable price. We were lucky to get incredible weather which meant lots of lounging outdoors - we made good use of both pizza oven, BBQ and the hot tub of course! Saturday night we had a fab groovy 1967 themed party and Sunday we all chilled listening to music (no neighbours so crank it up!) and playing games. It was perfect in every way. Big thanks to Laura for a warm welcome & good comms - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ringshall Grange for the best celebration get away. ���������

We spent a long time looking into large country properties to hire for my birthday celebrations and after much research, decided on Ringshall Grange. It was the best decision we have made! This is an absolutely stunning, well equpped and beautifully styled house, and we have just returned from such a wonderful weekend there. Right from the initial enquiry, contact with the owners was swift, efficient and professional. Laura answered all our queries and was incredibly helpful in suggesting local contacts for catering, pub walks and anything else we asked of her! All contracting and payment was very well organised and efficient. The house itself sits in lovely grounds down a long driveway set back from the road, and as such is very private. The moat surrounds the house and there are woodlands, a large meadow and lovely private grounds to enjoy. Whilst we were staying we saw numerous ducks, squirrels, partridges, pheasants and even a grazing deer on the other side of the moat! Inside the property there is plenty of space for everyone - we took a group of 22 people for the weekend, and it never felt like we were on top of one another. The children in our party had a fantastic time playing outside or in the well equipped games room - or on the karaoke. It is also a great house for hide and seek wiith it's 2 staircases and separate wings, so that kept them amused for hours too. Meanwhile the adults had the run of the kitchen, huge drawing room, whiskey room - and of course the hot tub! We also had a formal dinner on the Saturday night and the dining room was the perfect setting. All the rooms have been beautifully styled and decorated with incredible attention to even the smallest of details which really made a difference. The bathrooms are stunning, and there is a plentiful supply of soft white bath towels and toilet rolls. We cooked quite a lot during our stay, and the kitchen is really well equipped with everything you could need. There is also a larder full of basic provisions which was incredibly helpful - just pop a few pounds in the War Child collection box if you use them! And try out the pizza oven if you can - it is fantastic. I can't speak highly enough about how wonderful Ringshall Grange is. Unlike numerous other large proporties we have hired in the past, this house really does feel like a much loved family home - you can see the thought, care and attention Laura and Steve have put into every single detail. We genuinely wouldn't hesitate to return to this beautiful property, so do go and stay there yourselves - you won't be disappointed!

This house was amazing for my 30th birthday weekend. The decor is incredible and having the hot tub was great. The best thing has to be the fancy dress room! Highly recommend and will certainly be back some point soon. Thanks again Laura for being such a good host.

Had a wonderful 3 days with friends at Ringshall Grange last weekend. A stunning Manor House in a beautiful setting, the decor is amazing, you can tell the owners have put a lot of thought into it and spared no expense to make it feel luxurious, yet homely at the same time. I especially loved the vintage inspired wallpapers. It was the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all (the hot tub being the first place to start!) and have fun with friends. Our children had the BEST time ever, exploring the house and grounds, they were never short of anything to do and especially enjoyed the fancy dress room (ok we did too!). On Sunday, we rounded off our weekend with a fantastic roast chicken dinner, followed by cheese, both sourced from the incredibly friendly local farm shops. What more could you want? Actually, I want to live here, please?!!!!

A large group of us stayed from Friday to Sunday. I was so looking forward to our stay and wasn't disappointed. I was totally enchanted by this beautiful house and its surroundings. Laura, the owner, popped in to check if we were all ok and couldn't have been nicer. The house is so well equipped; from crockery, cutlery, glassware and towels to fancy dress and loo roll! (The latter two being very important!). What really took my breath away was the renovation work the house has undergone and the AMAZING decor - so well thought out and a brilliant mix of old and new with a keen eye for design. Thank you, can't wait to visit again x

Stayed here back in December and loved every moment of it. The owners have thought of everything you would need for a fun weekend away with friends or family - we had singalongs around the piano, opened Christmas presents by the fire and the dressing up room was amazing! We were already planning our return trip in the summer as we left on the Sunday :)

Lovely property, in beautiful grounds, set in Suffolk rural countryside. This venue has every amenity you could desire for a fun weekend. Owners Laura and Stephen are the coolest cats you could meet, whos primary concern is you and your party having fun.... An unusual trait for people who own such a sumptuous home.... All was explained when being nosey I happened upon a book about an amazing place in Somerset. Inside the front cover were warm words from a friend, talking about Stephen and Lauras first meeting. They met at Glastonbury.... Go to Ringshall grange, you will have fun xxx

I spent New Years Eve at Ringshall Grange and was blown away by the property and facilities. The property is located in a stunning setting and the building itself is grand but homely. The owners have restored it to a very high standard and have thoughtfully added several new facilities (hot tub, pizza oven, games room to name but a few) to enhance the experience and make your stay feel really special. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay at Ringshall to anyone looking for the British country home experience.

I stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate nye with my friends and the weekend could not have been more perfect. The owners (who are super helpful, professional and friendly) seem to have thought of every possible way to make the house an absolute pleasure to stay in! Hot tub, pool table, darts board, stunning (massive) bedrooms, everything that you could possibly want/need in a kitchen, speakers in each room, karaoke, dressing up room.. the list goes on! And all of this surrounded by beautiful countryside and so much private land to stroll around. 18 of us stayed here without it being anywhere near a squeeze. With so many fun features in the house, we were fully entertained all weekend and would definitely return. Cannot recommend this property enough.

When I originally booked Ringshall Grange back in October for my birthday it was on a total whim after a friend of Laura's posted it on Facebook and I am SO glad I took that leap of faith. The house is a magical place and because of this it's quite difficult to put into words. While its a beautiful big house with a great sense of history and grandeur, it somehow retains a cosy, homely feel. You don't feel scared to touch or use anything... Everything is tastefully decorated and in keeping with the surroundings, nothing's too OTT (except for the glitter walls on then Karaoke room!) and the grounds are beautiful. I think it's because of this homely welcoming vibe, you immediately feel right at home. Our weekend there was definitely one of the best weekends ever and one which the group will never forget. I would (and have) wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody looking for a fun weekend away. Do what I did and take the plunge, you won't be disappointed! Thanks again to Laura and Steven for everything and see you again in 2017!

This place is truly awesome. The house is full of character and charm. Stylish yet extremely comfortable. Each room is unique with fantastic design touches. The kitchen is perfect for a large group and has everything you need. The grounds are beautiful. The addition of a dressing up and karaoke room is the icing on the cake. This place rocks and we will definitely return. Thanks for an amazing time.

My family and I have just spent a truly magical Christmas at Ringshall Grange, infact probably the best big family get together we've ever had. The house and grounds are obviously spectacular, you can see that from the pictures, but what you can't tell is how warm, comfortable and generous the house is - it has a really brilliant vibe and is such a fabulous party house. Every room is incredibly stylish but also deliciously comfortable. Laura and Stephen have done an amazing job and they couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating hosts. Everything we needed was sorted and dealt with quickly and we were left not one but two beautifully decorated trees plus gifts for our family to enjoy. The biggest trouble with Ringshall Grange is you can't bear to leave! We will definitely book again, thank you!

What an incredible place, the rooms, decor...fancy dress room, the grounds. One of best weekends of my life, thank you! I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay with a big group of friends x

21 of us stayed at Ringshall Grange and had the best weekend. It is a beautiful house in a beautiful location and equipped with everything we could possibly have needed. Thank you Laura & Steve!

This place! What a beautiful house and setting, it has everything you need for a magical weekend of fun, relaxation and happiness. And only a short hop from London - perfect! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a country escape with friends.

What a weekend! Ringshall Grange is just perfect for a fun holiday retreat. We spent a long weekend at the house and it was filled with laughter, roaring log fires, happy people, fancy dress, music, food, long walks, home cooked food and lots more. All perfectly hosted by Laura and Stephen, who made us feel so welcomed, and were on hand to help us with anything we needed. We'll definitely be coming back and recommending the house to others.

Laura and Stephen are natural hosts. Both are very creative and have a fantastic ability to style the venue effortlessly but with amazing results. It's a gorgeous property - I love it because it can be a traditional "Country Manor House" one day or a "Fairy Laden Magical, Hipster adventure the next . It's a canvas ( and a half) for parties, seminars, family gatherings or whatever you need it to be. I've known Laura for years and nothing phases her - she is one of life's natural party planners and our party didn't disappoint ! Thank you xxx

Ringshall Grange, it’s hard to actually put into words how magical this place really is. I would suggest you book it and find out. The house is delightful and the grounds are beautiful. We spent a number of days there for our company annual trip and it exceeded above and beyond any requirements we had envisaged. We have already started to agree on our date for our next annual trip to visit. Laura and Stephen the owners were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much for them. It’s obvious how much they both love the house with deep passion and care about their guests. Great food, amazing house, wonderful hosts – ideal for family/friends/work trips! This house will become a destination spot soon, so get in quick if you want to experience a truly perfect break! See you soon Ringshall Grange! Love x

We came to Ringshall Grange on a work event, bringing our entire team, about 35 people. The whole two days were fantastic. We ran a team session on the first morning and then set about having some fun. Laura and Steven have created a wonderful place, welcoming, surrounded by beautiful countryside with plenty of space to hang out, eat and generally relax, both inside the amazing house and in the grounds. It was so good, I have booked the house to come back with family. Thanks Laura and Steven, looking forward to seeing you again soon!

We highly recommend this beautiful and historically very interesting venue. In September we held our wedding ceremony, with 125 guests, at Ringshall Grange - if you want a peaceful and stress-free experience this is it. Set in beautiful grounds the owners, Laura and Steve, have created a very special environment that includes woodland, open fields, super views and fascinating accommodation. With Laura and Steve we worked with local businesses and we found everyone prepared to spend time with us to ensure our wedding day ran smoothly and it did! Don't rush this experience it's worth spending a few days there.i

We had a wonderful weekend at RG. Steve and Laura have done a stunning job of making this place into a home from home which is equally opulent and comfortable. There's so much to explore we spent hours getting lost, and every room is decorated beautifully. We went for my 40th, but it would be ideal for stag/hen parties, weddings, family get togethers etc etc.

20 of us stayed at Ringshall Grange in early September, a last getaway before the Summer holidays disappeared. 11 adults and 9 children gathering from London, Essex, Sussex and Berkshire. The weekend was relaxed, fun and unique because of this unusual house. Laura and Steve's vision comes through very clearly, and the idiosyncratic joining of Tudor, Victorian, Edwardian and millennial worlds is exciting. It's a cosy place, yet it feels like you could easily be in a film, a murder mystery or at an aristocrats party. The grounds are huge and perfect for an explore or a runaround. As an amateur gardener, my envy of the onsite allotment was not convincingly contained. The children were in their element with a dedicated fancy dress/karaoke cubbyhole and the chance to watch Peppa Pig from a gold chaise lounge. Oh, how the other half live. We bought fresh, local ingredients from the farm next door and the rest we had delivered by Sainsbury's without any fuss (and as it's a new address, £20 off our 'first order'. Everyone's a winner. Ish). The adults somehow managed to endure the hot tub, the bar area (cocktails, poker etc) and debating the intricacies of modern education policy and a current failure in British politics whilst drinking bourbon in the whiskey room. Yes, a room for just this activity. Loads to do in the area too - some us took the scenic route to Southwold and others walked to a local vegetarian pub. Laura and Steve went above and beyond - helpful, flexible and generous throughout. This is a special place for all sorts of reasons and all sorts of groups of people. I know that some of our party are already planning to re-book, and I'm looking forward to visiting again one day soon Wholeheartedly recommended.
