Festive breaks at Haughley Park

Learn more

Haughley Park House sits in 250 acres of well-maintained woodland, parkland and beautifully landscaped gardens.

The main house and wedding venue are approached by a long, sweeping driveway that winds through the gently undulating Suffolk parkland, providing a striking first impression for those entering the estate.

Parkland and Woods

Around 100 acres of woodland borders the estate with areas of interest including special plantations, sections of coppice and a small arboretum comprising specimen trees, rhododendron rides and secluded glades. The woods also feature 10 acres of naturally occurring bluebells which provide a ‘blue carpet’ in late April-early May. Members of the public are invited to enjoy this natural wonder on two ‘Bluebell Sundays’ in aid of Wetherden Church.

The parkland, also approximately 100 acres, is home to a variety of mature specimen oaks and their iconic silhouettes add drama to the landscape.

The grounds are currently used by Scouts and Guides, local running, cycling and orienteering groups and for sheepdog training. 

Please note: Haughley Park is not open to the public except for special events.

Ornamental Gardens

Six acres of landscaped gardens surround the main house and barn with bursts of colour provided by a wide variety of flowers, shrubs and trees – and a peacock called Captain!

A walled kitchen garden lies to the south and boasts a mix of herbs, flowers and produce, while a traditional carriage turn with grass centre enhances the handsome facade.

A 1000-year-old oak tree can be found on the north lawn and nearby are steps down to a magical woodland garden (known as The Dell) with giant Redwood (Wellingtonia) trees adding to the fairy tale atmosphere.

Towards the barn, lies a large, well-stocked fish pond with water lillies and reeds and a large weeping willow to the rear.

Please note: Haughley Park is not open to the public except for special events.

Sculptures

In 2006, large contemporary glass sculptures were added to the gardens around the barn, introducing an exciting and modern edge to the otherwise traditional setting. 

These stunning pieces were created by the American artist, Danny Lane, who has been a friend of the Williams family for many years. 

He is best known for his work with glass and steel and his sculptures can be seen in public places around the world – including the Victoria and Albert Museum and Canary Wharf. 

The sculptures at Haughley Park are especially popular with wedding photographers and, when occasionally floodlit at night, lend an enchanted atmosphere to the gardens.
