Welcome to Bressingham Hall
Alan Bloom, the founder of Bloom’s Nurseries and Bressingham Steam Museum, lived with his family in this striking ivy-covered Grade II listed Georgian mansion for 50 years. Alan, followed by his son Adrian, created the 12 acres of beautifully tended gardens that surround Bressingham Hall, providing colour and interest throughout the seasons.
Bressingham Hall – newly extensively refurbished – now offers luxurious and spacious accommodation, available for holiday lets to families and groups.
- Maybe you are planning a special family get-together or an important birthday, a wedding or another celebration?
- Or maybe you have a group of friends interested in exploring the gardens, historic sites and attractions of this beautiful rural region?
- The Hall is also popular with corporate groups for team building or problem-solving getaways.
Enjoy Bressingham Gardens with your friends and family, and book an exclusive stay in Bressingham Hall.
Bressingham Hall has been featured in Country Life magazine (March 2019); read all about their stay here.
Accommodation at Bressingham Hall
Sleeps 10 – 19 guests, in 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms
Recently renovated, the Hall retains its Georgian period features whilst also creating a warm and welcoming environment for house guests.
A large reception hall leads to an elegantly decorated drawing room and dining room, and the grand staircase takes you up to the seven spacious and beautifully furnished bedrooms for up to 19 guests.
5 of the ensuite bedrooms have brand new king size beds, with additional singles available, and 2 further bedrooms have twin or single beds, and there are 2 cots available for tots. View sleeping plan.
The bathrooms all provide large walk-in showers and 2 bathrooms also feature gorgeous classic roll-top baths.
The furnishings complement and reflect a bygone era. Pretty decorative fireplaces grace each room – a wonderful feature saved from years ago. The tall ceilings are adorned by chandeliers, and period furniture, dado rail mouldings and wooden floorboards have been sympathetically preserved.
Both the formal drawing and dining room are perfect to play host to the smartest drinks reception or supper whilst a comfy ‘snug’ equipped with squishy informal sofas, bean bags and chairs will be the bolt hole for nights in front of the TV or children looking for a den to play and hide from their parents.
Bressingham Hall is self-catering but for a truly relaxing stay, catering is available – from traditional home-style food to fine dining. Maybe a cooked breakfast or afternoon tea, or canapes or 7-course supper! If you are celebrating something special, we can recommend caterers to help you really relax during your stay.

The Local Area
Bressingham is an easy journey from London, the Midlands and the North, and further afield. We have guests from as far as the Americas, Asia, and Australasia!
Located on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk, the pretty rural landscapes of the Waveney Valley can be enjoyed on foot, by bicycle, or by car.
As well as the world-renowned Bressingham Gardens, other regional gardens of interest include Beth Chatto’s and East Ruston’s The Old Vicarage. There are also museums (including the nearby Bressingham Steam Museum), historic houses, nature and animal sanctuaries, and art and event venues locally. Please see our Attractions List.
(Please note the main gardens are open to the public from early March to late October, daily from 10.30am to 5.00pm. However, the Hall is set back from the public gardens by the original island beds designed and planted by Alan Bloom in 1952. Guests are free to wander all the gardens during opening, and will have all 12 acres to themselves once the public have left.)
