The Experience

Up the drive through parkland studded with ancient trees and step into the flagstoned hall of this 18th–century house. Find gracious rooms, soft colours, Persian rugs, antiques, hunting prints and books to browse. Perry is delightful and looks after you well; settle into big peaceful bedrooms with good beds, chocolates and long rural views. Just beyond the market town of Hadleigh, the house snoozes on a hill with acres of garden, orchard, croquet lawn, rose walk and pond. Explore Constable Country, visit the Munnings Art Museum in Dedham, Gainsborough House in Sudbury and the cathedral city of Bury St Edmunds.

A lovely house in beautiful grounds with an enormous drawing room to sit and gaze upon them. Terrific hospitality too with excellent breakfasts. If you are looking for an English country house experience with an interesting history near a classic Suffolk town and delightful rolling countryside - this is the place to stay. Highly recommended.

Alan, London

Perfect hospitality. A wonderfully restful and refreshing stay in this beautiful, and beautifully furnished, home. We hope to return.

Denis, Addlestone

We stayed at this lovely house for two nights and wished we had had longer to explore the extensive gardens as well as the surrounding area.. Perry & Charlotte could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They provided us with a delicious dinner on one of the nights. Very much hope we can return sometime soon.


We have now stayed three times at Holbecks House. We would recommend it to anyone, the house is beautiful, with lovely open fires. Very welcoming hosts who are friendly and accommodating, and even made us packed lunches at short notice. The breakfasts are great and they are very flexible when it come to the lovely evening meals. Highly recommended for a quiet stay in congenial surroundings.
