Thornham Hall offers exclusive accommodation in the heart of Suffolk. Thornham Hall is situated at the centre of the Thornham Estate, the country seat of the Barons of Hartismere and Henniker for three centuries.
The estate itself has been greatly reduced in size since the last century, but it is still maintains a large modern farming operation and many beautiful, ancient woods. The real gem though is the magnificent park, designed originally in Tudor times by the Killegrews, courtiers to Henry VIII. The Victorians altered many of the Tudor aspects, including the drive, and planted some wonderful Wellingtonias and cedars.
Thornham is well placed for visits to the East Anglian countryside and coast. The towns of Diss, Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Norwich, Woodbridge and Cambridge are all within easy reach. The historic centres of Lavenham, Long Melford and Framlingham can be reached by driving through lovely countryside.
Large local country Houses such as Helmingham and Ickworth, Blickling and Fellbrigg are nearby. Thornham Guests interested in the North Norfolk coast and Broads, the seaside resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold, Thetford Forest, and the coastal and inland bird reserves of East Anglia are well placed for day trips to these beauty spots. Garden lovers can revel in the delights of Bressingham, Blooms and the like, as well as visiting our own recently restored Thornham Walled Garden.
