Otley Hall | Suffolk

Enchanting Grade I Listed 15th Century Hall set in Suffolk

The 15th and 16th-century Tudor Manor House at Otley Hall, set in 10 acres of grounds, has long been regarded as the oldest house in Suffolk. It has survived largely intact, with many rooms essentially unchanged for 500 years. Dedicated to the history and architecture of the late medieval period, the Hall is an exquisite example of this period’s architecture.

Surrounded by serene countryside, Otley Hall has a magical, timeless atmosphere where the present is inextricably interconnected with the past. Step back in time to discover the fascinating historic moments that took place within its walls, including how Bartholomew Gosnold planned his two voyages that would result in the founding of the United States and how Otley Hall may have inspired some of Shakespeare’s greatest works.

The Gardens

Our gardens offer a special experience for everyone.

The enchanting 10-acre gardens at Otley Hall have been made by many hands over many years. Reflecting an exquisite blend of wild and structural features, the gardens are a fluid space that never stands still, much like the water underfoot that feeds the ponds.


With its atmospheric Great Hall, sensory floral gardens and the soft Suffolk sunlight as your backdrop, Otley Hall offers a truly unique and exceptionally romantic setting for your special day.

With complete exclusivity of our 10 acres of magnificent grounds, you and your guests can feel at home in your very own historic hideaway.
