Sayer’s Mansion holds a truly magnificent position, set within five thousand acres of private grounds. Built in 1827 by Robert Sayer, who was once the Sheriff of Suffolk, the grade II* listed Georgian house makes a truly luxurious base for a special occasion, a family get-together or a reunion of friends.

Those fortunate enough to stay here, will get a sense of the grandeur on arrival, sweeping up the serpentine driveway and over the ornamental bridge, to be greeted with the honey coloured stone façade and iconic entrance pillars. The sense of opulence continues throughout the home, on the ground floor is the impressive living accommodation comprising of a number of reception rooms, including the drawing room, cosy Library, Moroccan-inspired TV room, formal dining room, ideal for special occasions, and the bright kitchen with relaxed breakfast dining facilities. Also on this level is the first of the bedrooms, a king-size double with en-suite bathroom. On the lower ground floor is a further entertaining space, comprising of a cinema room, games room and even a gym!

Upstairs, on the first floor, are the first seven bedrooms, six of which feature en-suite bathroom facilities, while guests staying in the remaining bedroom can make use of the next-door adjoining bathroom. On the second floor, are the remaining six bedrooms, five doubles and one single, two of the rooms have their own en-suite facilities, while the others share the use of a family bathroom which is also accessible, Jack & Jill-style, from one of the bedrooms. In total, the home can comfortably sleep up to twenty-seven guests, across its fourteen beautifully-appointed bedrooms.

Outside, enjoy balmy Summer evenings dining al fresco on the terrace while enjoying tasty barbecues. Spend dream-like days, exploring the grounds on bicycles, enjoying competitive games of tennis on the court or, for the more adventurous, choose to hire rowing boats or paddle boards and explore the Estate’s private lakes.

What you should know…

  • One of the second floor bedrooms is a single room and so this may be better suited to a child or a nanny
  • There are other properties on the Estate and so the 5,000 acre private grounds, lakes and tennis court are shared, however your group will retain plenty of privacy

  • Incredible

    Posted by Lucy on 17/11/2019

    15 of us went to stay at Sayer's Mansion for our annual company holiday! It was incredible and cannot recommend enough. We travelled from London and it was the perfect countryside get away. The house itself is extremely well kept and the staffing support ensure it is kept clean and tidy throughout the stay. We thoroughly enjoyed just chilling out around the grounds, exploring on bicycles, and braving the outdoor pool! Thanks for making our trip so great! Hopefully we will be back soon.

  • Perfect

    Posted by Tom on 27/03/2019

    My wife and I booked Sayer's Mansion and the surrounding accommodation for our January wedding this year, and it couldn't have been more perfect. The venue team were friendly, welcoming, helpful, and more than willing to listen to our thoughts and go above and beyond to make sure that we, and all our guests, were well looked after and had a weekend to remember.
    Our friends and family stayed in the various houses and cottages around the estate, and it was hard to pick a favourite! We'll definitely be back (though maybe just us next time...).
