Why we love it...

Contemporary rooms, clean style

The Place

A converted country mansion with a long history, having been a boarding school and a wartime RAF base, Kesgrave Hall’s impressive white exterior stands in 38 acres of grounds on the outskirts of Ipswich, and looks out on to a vast lawn.

Its 23 rooms, split between the main house and outbuildings, are clean and contemporary, with top bathrooms (the best rooms come with free-standing bathtubs) and pleasant views across the grounds.

The restaurant is open all day and leads on locally sourced meat and seafood. It’s a relaxed place, with a no-bookings policy, an open kitchen and an unusual method of ordering: guests write down their choices on a notepad and pass it to a waiter. This won’t be to everyone’s taste, but it’s a novel idea that makes you feel under less pressure to order quickly.

Kesgrave Hall is also ideal for private functions, having three event rooms for birthdays, meetings and corporate away days, as well as The Hangar, a separate building for weddings and large parties.

Kesgrave Hall’s luxurious new spa opened in Spring 2020. Built to blend in with the woodland, it is an ideal retreat from a busy life and the beautifully designed interiors create a peaceful environment. The treatments on offer range from a full body massage to a 25-minute facial treatment, as well as a unique ‘Peaceful Pregnancy’ treatment. There are four spa packages to choose from where you can also enjoy complimentary extras such as a three-course lunch or an evening dinner.
