Your own 5,000 acre private estate just under two hours from London
Located just outside Yoxford and a short two hour drive or train journey from London, Wilderness Reserve is a luxury escape across 5,000 acres of sprawling Suffolk private landscape. With 50 bedrooms available across the estate and a range of properties from Grade II listed Georgian manor to the authentic no electricity Hex cottage, the estate can host up to 100 guests and is easily adaptable to cater to any party size or needs. Commitment to conservation is at the heart of Wilderness Reserve, and we’re home to many at risk species, including eight pairs of Buzzards, raptors and wetland species such as Reed Bunting and Reed Warblers.
The beautiful grounds by landscape designer Kim Wilkie and surrounding coastal areas provide the perfect setting for team building away days, with a vast range of bonding outdoor activities from archery to clay pigeon shooting, water sports, golf, tennis, biking and fishing to name a few. Whether you are looking for a challenge or a bit of fun Wilderness Reserve has it all- if you are feeling brave there is even the opportunity to take a hot air balloon trip or to parachute onto the private parkland.
The dedicated and discreet staff at Wilderness Reserve are on hand to tailor these activities to your corporate needs at your request, and they can be used as training platforms and teamwork days for essential skills gained outside the office. The Orangery can host private corporate parties for up to 120 guests (marquees can be put up to host any larger celebrations) with Wilderness Reserve chefs on hand to create an evening tailored to you, with all food locally sourced and wine from the estate cellar. The private parkland provides space and privacy to dance into the early hours, and there is no need to worry about the taxi home with the abundance of luxury accommodation across Wilderness Reserve. Think rolling bathtubs, Neal’s Yard products and crisp duck downs to draw your night to a close.
