Seckford Hall Hotel & Spa is a country hotel near Woodbridge in Suffolk, steeped in history with all the ingredients to make it the perfect place for a weekend escape or day visit – a sublime spa, a smart restaurant serving stunning seasonal flavours, including a delightful afternoon tea, characterful spaces to relax in and elegant feature rooms to a cosy night’s stay. Set in expansive, picturesque grounds near the Suffolk Heritage Coast and Heaths AONB, the 16th century manor house blends traditional architecture with up-to-date interiors, for heritage charm with state-of-the-art luxury.
There are 42 luxurious bedrooms and suites set across the main house and outbuildings and each room is individually designed giving you the feeling that you’re staying in a historic family home rather than a soulless hotel. This welcoming home-from-home vibe continues throughout the hall with wood-panelled rooms full of cosy chairs and roaring fires where you can curl up with a good book, as well as in the gorgeous spa café with exposed brick walls.
In need of some pampering? Seckford Hall is the ideal place to book if you want a classic countryside break with some swimming and spa treatments on the side. The luxe spa has a wow-factor pool in a traditional brick-built barn, a sauna, a steam room, new Rasul suite and beautiful Spa Garden with outdoor spa facilities to enjoy all year long. With both single and couples’ treatment rooms, we’d happily head here for a girl’s getaway or a romantic break. If you’re lucky enough to live nearby you can visit for the day and make the most of the many treatments on offer on a regular basis, including everything from ESPA massages and facials and LED light treatments to having your make-up or nails done for a special occasion.
Foodies will be in their element here too, with Seckford Hall’s 1530 Restaurant, a smart 2 AA Rosette dining destination where you can enjoy fine food made using locally-sourced ingredients (some straight from the kitchen garden) in a stunning historic setting. A visit to Seckford Hall isn’t complete without indulging in one of their delicious afternoon teas either, so save room to enjoy this three-tier confection inside the hall, the spa café or in spring and summer in the beautiful walled garden. Keep an eye out for the special occasion teas, such as the Valentine’s Afternoon Tea, Mother’s Day and Festive Afternoon Tea, as well as other special events throughout the year such as seasonal parties and balls, workshops, special spa days, one-off lunches, family events and even tribute band gigs in the Great Hall!

Seckford isn’t just the ideal Suffolk hotel for a countryside getaway or dreamy day out, because you can also book this pretty pile for your wedding. You could have the whole house with its three ceremony and reception spaces, and bedrooms that sleep up to 60 on an exclusive use basis if you want to feel like lady or lord of the manor for the day. Plus, in summer just imagine the fairytale nuptials you could have in the magical gardens that are licensed for ceremonies. The icing on the top of the wedding cake is that you don’t even have to leave your venue for some pre-wedding pampering thanks to the on-site spa! Don’t have a large guest list or the budget to hire the whole estate? There are some amazing wedding packages for small intimate weddings, last-minute weddings and winter weddings, meaning the glorious venue can work for every couple’s unique dream day.
In a nutshell, we think this hotel is practically perfect in every way and highly recommend a visit here pronto!
