Sibton Park manor house is reached through a winding serpentine drive, over an ornamental bridge and past the Sibton Park lake leading to the honey-coloured stone facade with a dramatic portico entrance. Sibton Park Country house is available to rent.
The manor was built in 1827 by Robert Sayer, once Sheriff of Suffolk, to designs by the celebrated architect Decimus Burton. Once inside, take your pick from any number of receptions with classic Georgian proportions, such as the drawing room with its listed Chinese wallpaper, the bright morning room or formal dining room. Think open fires, fine antique furniture and chandeliers alongside discreet technology. Upstairs are 12 generous bedrooms with hypnos beds to sink into and baths to fill to the brim. Private chefs are available on request as well as waiting staff and butlers for the ultimate Downtown Abbey meets 21st century twist. Sibton Park manor is a short drive from Suffolk’s celebrated heritage coast, and what better way to discover the area than to rent the estate’s Rolls Royce or Morgan Plus 8 for the day. Visit the iconic Southwold pier and sample fresh oysters in coastal pubs. There is plenty to do on the estate with a host of activities on offer, from clay pigeon shooting and archery to use of the estate’s naturally filtered oval pool and tennis court. Sibton Park manor is the perfect retreat from hectic lifestyles and city living with 5,000 acres to enjoy and explore from your own private Georgian manor.
