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, although you could fit up to 22, depending on who shares a room with whom. There are three large bathrooms.

The reception rooms include a dining room (seating 22), 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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!!!!

  • 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! �

  • 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 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!!! �

  • 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!
