Boxted Hall in Suffolk

Boxted Hall is a a glorious 14th century moated manor house that offers a beautiful and serene setting as a wedding venue in Suffolk.

As Boxted Hall remains a private residence, the owners only allow one booking at a time in order that we can guarantee exclusivity, privacy and total attention to detail.

Situated in the picturesque rural countryside of Suffolk, Boxted Hall lies in the heart of a valley, obscured from the bustle of everyday life.

For wedding guests at Boxted Hall, many of our cottages, such as Spadgers and Romney, are just a short taxi drive away; so you can end the night and wind down in your own private getaway.

A Big Thank You: We’ve Raised Over £1,800 To Help Haiti!

Earlier this month, we decided that we wanted to try and do something to help the sufferers of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.

872b660d-4266-430f-a234-df660a7f5ecd

To help push for donations, we put up a short break at one of the cottages into a prize draw, with the only entry requirement being a donation of any size to this cause.

After setting out a target of £1,500 and reaching this in just 5 days, we were able to raise a grand total of £1,815.34 – 21% more than our intended target!

Chosen at random, Sherri Hunter was the selected donor who has been chosen to win a short at one of our cottages.

A big thank you to everyone who donated and congratulations to Shelly!

Anyone who donates to the Red Cross appeal via my Just Giving page will be entered into the draw. The winner will be selected at random from those who donated and announced on our blog, Facebook and Instagram.

Good luck and thank you for doing your part to help the sufferers of this tragic event.
