From the Stour valley to Bury St Edmunds, sleepy Suffolk is alive and kicking when it comes to luxury accommodation. Stay at the coast in a waterfront conversion, opt for a Tudor throw-back, or pamper yourself at a spa retreat in a Georgian hunting lodge. Horse-racing fans will find plenty of equine-themed artefacts at the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket. Here’s our pick of the best luxury accommodation in Suffolk, bookable with Culture Trip.
This was once the film set for chef Robert Carrier’s 1970s TV cooking shows. Carrier used to own the Grade I-listed Hintlesham Hall, which dates back to the 1400s, and filmed his series in what is now the Cherry Orchard Suite. Carrier’s Restaurant still pays homage to him, using beans, peas, Swiss chard and herbs grown in his former vegetable patch. Enjoy a game of golf at the par 72 course next door or visit the spa for Elemis pampering. Want to impres? Arrive in style by helicopter.
Immerse yourself in Britain’s horse-racing history at this equine-themed hotel and the Jockey Club’s Newmarket HQ. It’s a shrine to the sport with paintings of past winners on the walls and racing artefacts by the saddle bag-load, including a life-size bronze of Hyperion, one of Britain’s most successful horses. Much of the time, it’s members only, which have included six former Prime Ministers over the years, but the rest of us can stay on selected dates. Opt for a deluxe room overlooking the racecourse stables.
