Woodhall Manor Suffolk Events

Just half an hour’s drive from Ipswich lies historic Woodhall Manor and its idyllic nine-acre grounds. Dating back to the 16th century, this Grade II listed red-brick country house exudes period charm. Better yet, its secluded estate is just minutes from Suffolk’s stunning heritage coastline.

These include an elegant ballroom, an airy civil ceremony suite and a lavish party lounge with a modern vibe. So whether you’re planning a wedding, business event, bar mitzvah, birthday or even a prom, they have a space for you.
