Be lord of the manor for a few days at Mockbeggars Hall, a Jacobean masterpiece with far reaching views over the Gipping Valley in the famous Suffolk countryside.

Set in mature grounds, this imposing property will provide the perfect backdrop for a truly memorable holiday. It is perfect for a special celebration, get together or family reunion, or, how about a dramatic murder mystery weekend?

Enjoy a banquet in style in the magnificent dining hall, a champagne reception in the spacious drawing room with its incredible stone fireplace and French doors leading out to the terrace and gardens or just relax and unwind in the elegant living room. The interior retains many period features including studded wooden doors, original wood flooring and leaded windows alongside modern conveniences such as Sky TV with DVD/video players in the drawing room, living room, playroom and master bedroom, modern bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen. The left wing of the hall enjoys a large first floor balcony with splendid views of the garden and valley beyond. The spectacular grounds span some 3 acres including open lawn, a large stone paved terrace with garden furniture, and shady woodland copses.

Situated on the edge of Claydon village, Mockbeggars Hall is ideally located to explore some of rural Suffolk's attractions including the National Trust's Thorington Hall in Stoke-by-Nayland, and Flatford Mill, in the beautiful Dedham Vale - the location of John Constable's famous painting 'The Haywain'. 4 miles away is Ipswich town with the interesting Christchurch Mansion, museum and gardens or the historic town of Woodbridge is just a 9-mile journey east where there is much to do and see, including the famous Tide Mill, and a little further on Sutton Hoo, an Anglo Saxon burial ground.

It offers a treasure trove of sights and sounds for the racing enthusiast with race horses, trainers and stud farms based in and around the town along with two excellent race courses, offering racing fixtures from spring to autumn, where all can enjoy a family day out.
