Thornham Hall Information


Thornham Hall is situated at the centre of the Thornham Estate. Thornham Hall has been the country seat of the Barons of Hartismere and Henniker for over three centuries. The estate itself has been greatly reduced in size since the last century, but it is still maintains a large modern farming operation and many beautiful, ancient woods. The 20th century Thornham Hall is an elegant modern house which reflects its Tudor, Georgian and Victorian past. Thornham Hall has open fires, spacious rooms and fine porcelain and portraits. The surrounding stables by Lamb and the statuesque Victorian water tower add to the atmosphere. Thornham Hall, with its formal gardens, is set in the centre of magnificent parkland, designed originally in Tudor times by the Killegrews, courtiers to Henry VIII. The Victorians altered many of the Tudor aspects, including the drive, and planted some wonderful Wellingtonias and Cedars. Thornham Hall is part of an ancient estate, where there are over 10 miles of walks set in beautiful woods and farmland open to guests. There are also two lovely historic Thornham churches to visit, which are both within walking distance. Thornham is well placed for visits to the East Anglian countryside and coast. The towns of Diss, Bury St. Edmunds, Ipswich, Norwich, Woodbridge and Cambridge are all within easy reach. The historic centres of Lavenham, Long Melford and Framlingham can be reached by driving through lovely countryside. Large local country Houses such as Helmingham and Ickworth, Blickling and Fellbrigg are nearby. Thornham Guests interested in the North Norfolk coast and Broads, the seaside resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold, Thetford Forest, and the coastal and inland bird reserves of East Anglia are well placed for day trips to these beauty spots. Garden lovers can revel in the delights of Bressingham, Blooms and the like, as well as visiting our own recently restored Thornham Walled Garden.

I like to think Thornham Hall speaks for itself - I love it and am always delighted when my guests love it too. The really special extras of Thornham Hall are the views across the croquet lawn and West lawn to the parkland beyond. You are looking on some of the best parkland in the country - from the comfort of your own room as well as from the reception rooms and gardens. I have lived all over the world and when holidaying elsewhere, I always love coming homing home, turning into the south drive and coming through the park to the house. If I am lucky I will see three beautiful thorobred horses grazing in the park with the dolphin fountain in the background. I love sharing this very special place with my guests.
