Seckford Hall Hotel is a magnificent country mansion hotel in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. It is one of the finest hotels in the region, with a spectacular setting amidst landscaped grounds, walled gardens and a lake.
The original Hall dates back to Tudor times – although the building’s origins can be traced back to the reign of Edward I – and its castellated façade with its time-mellowed brickwork, ornate chimneys and oak-panelled rooms paint an historic backdrop.
Working with English Heritage on a major refurbishment, the hotel has been carefully upgraded with contemporary decor and facilities. Medieval rederos, intricately carved arches, oil paintings and suits of armour contribute to Seckford Hall’s Elizabethan splendor.
Seckford Hall Hotel has an award-winning restaurant, a health club housed in a magnificent Tudor tithe barn and a spa, situated in the grounds of the hotel. The privately owned Seckford Golf Centre, featuring an 18-hole golf course, is adjacent to the hotel.
