South Elmham Hall

South Elmham Hall was built by the Bishops of Norwich who came here to hunt the deer in the park around the Hall. Inside the sixteenth century exterior, now a Grade I listed farmhouse, are medieval wall paintings, archways and fireplaces which date this part of the house to 1270.

The spacious Silver Award rooms at South Elmham Hall offer romantic and luxurious accommodation with views of the grounds and the surrounding countryside. Many weddings are held here, and the honeymoon suite has an antique brass bed with a canopy. The drawing room has an open log fire.

Breakfast, which has won a special ETB Award, is served in a splendid converted barn which has a fully-licensed bar and is open on certain days for delicious lunches and evening meals. Complimentary tea, Italian coffee and cakes are served on arrival.

The Hall is in four acre moated grounds within a large farm which has won awards for hedge replanting, with ancient pastures grazed by rare pedigree British White cattle. There are many marked trails and the barn is a visitors’ centre for walkers.

South Elmham is situated in a beautiful valley on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, between the picturesque market towns of Bungay and Harleston and just half an hour from Southwold on the Suffolk Coast. The fine city of Norwich, with its highly-rated shopping and cultural amenities, is a similar distance north.
