A magnificent Country estate close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast

Glemham Hall is one of Suffolk’s most notable private houses and is part of the Glemham Hall Estate. Dating from the sixteenth century with later additiions made in the eighteenth century, the Hall is of mellow brick walls relieved by large sash windows and offers extensive accommodation. The principal rooms have exceptional ceiling heights and many traditional features. From the front door, there is a magnificent reception hall which leads to the main reception rooms and to the kitchen and domestic offices with extensicve cellars below. At the first floor there are plentiful bedrooms and dressing rooms, and at the second floor there are extensive attics. Outside there are traditional lawns and formal gardens with a grass tennis court, rose garden, cutting garden and traditional green house with garaging. At the head of the drive is The Lodge which offers further accommodation.

Available by negotiation is the Park which surrounds the Hall on all sides and extends to 183 acres. Within the Park there is extensive grazing as well as a wonderful mixture of mature specimen trees, specifically planted to plans created by Repton in the 18th century.

Also available by negotation is the entire Estate which extends to 1,763 acres. The entire estate is shown under a seperate listing.

This property has 15.12 acres of land.


Gardens and Grounds: From a Lodge Cottage at the head of the drive, the Hall is approached through the park with the drive continuing past the front door and culminating to the east of the Hall, where there is a gravel turning circle and walled parking area. The gardens surrounding the Hall are sweeping lawns with some fine specimen trees including cedar, oak and copper beech with long runs of sculpted yew hedges. To the centre of the lawns is a yew avenue leading to several formal hedged and walled gardens including a large autumn flower garden with traditional greenhouse and massive yew topiary hedge, thought to be the oldest feature of the gardens. Beyond this, and approached through the yew avenue there is a rose parterre with formal pond flanked by yew hedges and mellow brick walls, behind which is a ha-ha and a fine mature yew hedge. To the south there is a grass tennis court with a traditional summer house, flanked by a brick wall with an iron gate opening to a half moon area of grass.

Outbuildings : The former carriage house with bell tower now provides garaging with storage above, and to the rear there is a staff room with kitchen area and cloakroom. Attached to one side is an original squash court with raised viewing area. A south facing studio offers ideal accommodation for recreation and stands between the gardens and the garages. Adjoining the garden walls there are a number of traditional garden stores and potting sheds, a first class cloakroom (with male, female and disabled facilities) and a wine store.

The Lodge: A recently renovated single storey brick and tile lodge situated at the head of the main drive. Two reception rooms, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. Outside there is a garden and parking.


Glemham Hall is situated at Little Glemham, about 7 miles from Aldeburgh and 8 miles from Woodbridge. Both towns have a wide range of high-end facilities and are especially desirable coastal and riverside towns.
