A mere 2 hours from London, Wilderness Reserve’s Grade II listed Sibton manor house sleeps 24 boasting 12 bedrooms, 5 reception rooms, cinema, gym and games room with the opportunity to add on as much or as little service as you need in the form of chefs, waiting staff, butlers and housekeeping.

The Barn and the Cartshed offer three and four bedrooms respectively, and make a perfect country getaway for groups from the city with expansive views across the estate, range cookers and large dining space to feast and catch up around, king size Hypnos beds to sink into and smart TV’s to unwind in front of. Dine under the stars with a chef prepared feast or visit one of the local pubs offering the best Suffolk seafood and locally brewed real ale and cider. Our chefs are used to making meals for big groups on holiday so whether it is a formal three course affair with homemade canapes or a low key casserole in the country kitchen, there is no need to lift a finger.

Alexa Chung made sure she rang in her 32nd birthday in style with close friends Daisy Lowe, Jack Guinness, Drew Elliot and Aimee Phillips at a luxury manor house in Wilderness Reserve in the heart of Suffolk.

We have just spent the weekend with 32 of our family at Wilderness and could not fault it. We celebrated my father in laws 80th birthday there. The staff the house and food were fantastic. Would definitely recommend it for a family celebration.

There’s accommodation enough to host every one of you – whether it’s a group holiday of 12 or up to 100 on the estate. Spend afternoons in the cinema room, lazy meals at the long breakfast table at Sibton Manor or head out and make the most of the activities onsite.

Late Nights
Dine under the stars with a chef prepared feast, activate iPods and play music into the evening. Or go to town and bring a band to set up by the swimming pool and dance until dawn.

Large Meals
Our chefs are used to making meals for large groups on holiday. Whether a formal 3-courses affair or a low key casserole in the country kitchen, you don’t need to life a finger. Highlights on the menu include fish sourced from nearby Southwold and wine from our wine cellar.

Bonding Activities
Nothing like a bit of healthy competition. Play doubles on the private tennis court or take out the boats on the lake. Mountain bike and stop for lunch, then walk through the Yox valley before returning home to soak in a roll top bath with Neal’s Yard toiletries.

Our service is crafted to your needs and all of our bookings can be made truly bespoke. Due to the variety of properties and spaces available across Wilderness Reserve we are flexible in catering for different party sizes and needs. There are plenty of activities to keep you and your group occupied- play doubles on the private tennis court, take out the boats on the lake, find gentle competition clay-pigeon shooting or take a few languid laps before relaxing by the pool. Off the estate, Suffolk offers a host of things to do from visiting local pubs to strolls along Southwold’s picturesque pier or visiting Aldeburgh’s famous shell sculpture on the beach, before returning home to soak in a roll top baths and sprawl in front of the fireplace.
