Dating back to the Tudor Era, Seckford Hall Hotel in Woodbridge is a stunning country house nestled in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Queen Elizabeth I once held court at Seckford Hall, and the mansion has kept its original period features, panelled rooms, time-mellowed brickwork, beamed ceilings, carved doors and great stone fireplaces displayed against the splendour of English oak.
The bedrooms within this stunning Suffolk hotel achieve that perfect harmony between historic grandeur and contemporary comfort. The magnificent Tudor Room even features an original four-poster bed from 1587. The rooms in the modern annexe, which has been converted from the original stables, are every bit as elegant and all room feature free Wi-Fi, Freeview flat screen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities.
The 2 AA Rosette-winning 1530 restaurant served up excellent but simply cooked traditional favourites made from local Suffolk ingredients – in fact many of the herbs, fruits and vegetables come from Seckford Hall’s own gardens. Meals and drinks are also available in the country pub-style Tudor Bar, which features cosy sofas on which to enjoy a pint of local Adnams. In warm weather, al fresco dining in the garden in also an option.
In the courtyard is a splendid Tudor tithe barn, now converted to a newly renovated Spa and Leisure Club. Relax in the heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, or work out in the fitness suite, followed by a pampering spa treatment.
Set in 34 acres of tranquil parkland with sweeping lawns and a willow-fringed lake, guests may stroll about the grounds or simply relax in the attractive terrace garden. A walk along the riverside will take the visitor to picturesque Woodbridge, with its tide mill, antique shops, yacht harbours and quaint old streets. Constable Country and the beautiful Suffolk coast are nearby, as are such attractions as Sutton Hoo royal burial site, Orwell River cruises, moated Otley Hall, Shawsgate Vineyard and much more.
