Sibton Park Manor House – Suffolk, England
Try to suppress illusions of grandeur as you wind your way around the serpentine lake and arrive at the portico pillars of Sibton Park. Period furniture, exquisitely furnished bedrooms, (even the wallpaper is listed), and a dining room and orangery made for banquets (or weddings), this manor house is country house living at its grandest. Think open fires, fine antique furniture and chandeliers alongside discreet technology. We love the high Georgian ceilings, with large sash windows looking out over parkland and the lavish interiors.
There are plenty of rooms to dine and celebrate in. Whether it be in the more formal dining room or the large kitchen with wood-burner, Aga and deer-antler chandeliers, or downstairs under candlelight in the vaulted corridor. Down here you will also find the gym, private cinema and games room. Of course you can also choose to dine alfresco or BBQ in the private courtyard or the large terrace overlooking parkland, grazing livestock and the lake beyond. All you need is your family, or a large party of very close friends, and a private chef (the latter can be organised for you).

The Wilderness Reserve represents a magical 8,000-acre paradise for wildlife restoration with conservation a central focus. Proudly housing a vast array of species, including 125 birds, 33 mammals, 220 plants, almost 600 moths, 23 butterflies, 20 dragonflies, and 4 amphibians, there’s plenty for you to explore too! These populations are keenly supported by 2,000 nest boxes and wildflower seed sown each year on top of the 1 million trees planted.
The Wilderness Reserve
Sibton Park is situated on 8,000 acres of remarkable parkland where arable pastures have been returned to nature, native woodland has burgeoned with the planting of thousands of trees, and lakes and wetlands have been created across three valleys. This is known as The Wilderness Reserve – an exceptionally diverse natural habitat for countless native species of wildlife and grazing sheep and cattle. Here you can lose yourself for a long weekend, or a week.
Kick back, get close to nature and enjoy some of the cleanest air in the country.
The Wilderness Reserve is a place for total relaxation. You can explore this part of Suffolk, or choose to roam the estate on the Pashley bicycles stocked in each property (there are wellies you can borrow too); row or paddle board on the lakes; host a tennis tournament; clay pigeon shoot or learn about the natural inhabitants with the resident ranger. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome to come. Breakfast hampers can be provided, and private chefs can be organised, if you’re not tempted off the estate to one of the many fabulous local pubs and restaurants.
