Countdown till midnight around a dining table for 24. Stop the music in the ballroom for a toast.
New Year’s Eve at Wilderness Reserve is as debauched or relaxed as you want it. With space for a 120 person party in the Orangery, or a cosy group gathering in a Sibton drawing room, it’s up to you how you use the estate. Just make sure it’s memorable.
For a big celebration, book out all 50 rooms and fill with family and friends.
Or for a smaller event, take the Cartshed and Farmhouse for a 20 person dinner party and 3 day trip. Prepare for the evening in en suite bathrooms with roll top tubs, then fall into kingsize Hypnos beds after midnight.
Food and Drink
Our chefs can prepare the most lavish of New Year’s banquets, from baked fresh fish from the Suffolk coast to rare beef steaks.
Or if you’d like to take it into your own hands, we can help you source fresh seasonal ingredients – the modern kitchens are at your disposal.
Champagne and Wine
Our estate cellar stocks a selection of fine wines and Champagnes to get the party started. Chat through options with us and pick out a range to suit the occasion and the feast. If you’d like some Suffolk Adnams beer and cider, we are happy to send out for cases.
New Year’s Day Activities
Start the new year with a hearty breakfast and bracing walk around the estate. Shake off any drowsiness with a break in the Gate Lodges steam room, hot tub or a swim in the pool. Take the group out to the lake for rowboats and a frosty picnic – hot tea and sloe gin in flasks and wrapped up warm. Or put your feet up and snack on last night’s leftovers by the fire.
