Best wedding venue

We had our wedding here and wow the place is amazing, the views, the marquee, and the accommodation.
Everything was just perfect and who knew such a little gem of a place was on our doorstep.
Definitely worth a visit, all our guests was blown away by the beautiful setting.

Thank you Julie & Brian for everything

Just the best wedding from start to finish. If you want to have what you want on your special day, not what someone tells you you want, then this is the place for you. Accommodation fabulous too, Cant fault anything.

Fantastic Venue- a hidden gem!

The most wonderful day! Suffolk Retreats is a fantastic venue if you want to be in control of organising your own day and not having the restrictions like many other venues on finishing times, caterers, corkage etc but have the comfort of knowing you are in an amazing setting.

The accommodation is perfect to cater for a large number all on one site, immaculate condition and so unusual with yurts as well!

Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
