The award-winning, family-owned venue has been creating lasting, magical memories for couples for over 50 years. The venue is surrounded by stunning countryside scenery with lakes, streams, and woodlands, creating picture-perfect moments for your special day.
We know that planning your wedding is one of the biggest, most important and time-consuming projects of your life! This is why we have a dedicated Wedding Planning Team to help you with every aspect of planning your big day. From your initial tour of the venue to the last goodbye as you head to your room as a married couple, your dedicated Wedding Coordinators will take care of everything so you don't have to worry about a thing.
Set within 300 acres of beautiful, rolling countryside on the Suffolk and Essex border - a picturesque location that inspired painter John Constable – SbN overlooks a private lake that forms the perfect backdrop to your special day.
There is so much on offer to provide you with the perfect place to say ‘I do’.
With a large and spectacular banqueting suite, an intimate function room at the country lodges and seasonal luxurious giant Tipis set within the grounds and lakes, SbN have the facilities to cater for every kind of celebration – from a big white wedding to a festival style bash or a small intimate gathering.
All function rooms enjoy natural daylight and private terraces, whilst our luxury Tipi benefits from panoramic views of the surrounding countryside from a beautifully landscaped green.
The hotel holds a wedding license, though Tipi brides can make it official outdoors under a wooden pergola set within stunning countryside.
The 4-star hotel has 80 contemporary bedrooms, as well as 10 luxurious countryside lodges, so your guests don't need to worry about traveling.
With set wedding packages and bespoke offerings, we are versatile in our approach to making your special day one to remember. Simply tell us what you’d like to include and an estimate of your budget and we'll work with you to prepare the perfect package.
Let us assist and advise you on your choice of wedding breakfast, accompanying wines, and evening buffet. We even have additional extras such as giant light-up letters, a star-lit backdrop, a post-box, and a popcorn machine that you can hire from us rather than having to spend your precious time searching for a supplier. We can also share with you our recommended supplies including styling to help you achieve your dream wedding day.
The Wedding Journey
We have the scope to properly support you throughout your wedding journey - with spa and golf facilities for engagement parties, hen and stag dos, rehearsal dinners, anniversary celebrations, and more!
