A chance to relish a family holiday in the UK. Let children roam with the care free mind that comes once submerged in rural Suffolk countryside. Our youngest guests will amuse themselves with wildlife and parkland – playing spot the deer, geese, cows and birds. Fill giant bathtubs with bubbles and let them splash around, or head to the tennis courts en famille for friendly tournaments.
Spend precious quality time together whether fishing for roach at Moat Cottage, or exploring the 5,000 acre estate by Pashley bikes, without the worry of traffic. Take the rowing boats across the lake or laze by the swimming pool for the afternoon. Hazy summer afternoons call for wild imaginations, with Teddy Bear picnics by the edge of the wood and trips to Suffolk’s magical heritage coast. Drive to Walberswick for crabbing and building sandcastles, eat fish & chips (or oysters if you prefer) for lunch in Southwold and make a quick trip to Framlingham Castle for a spot of history.
Make the most of our babysitters and guardians to ensure your children are safe and happy when you’re not around. Enjoy the opportunity to fully relax with as much or as little kitchen and housekeeping support as you like, with estate chefs, waiting staff, housekeepers and butlers upon request.
