Treat yourself to a stay at Kesgrave Hall, a boutique hotel housed in a Georgian building just outside Ipswich.
With buckets of space to relax inside and out, en-suite bedrooms designed to relax and posh scotch eggs and champagne afternoon tea on the menu, this is a retreat you’ll find hard to leave behind.
Check into a principle room and you can take a long soak in a stand-alone bath while watching satellite TV. Hungry? The restaurant with its spacious open-plan kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, with seasonal foods coming and going on the daily specials board.
If you can tear yourself away from the indulgence for a few hours, a stretch of unspoilt coastline is just 30 minutes away and includes Havergate Island - an oasis for wildlife that’s only accessible by RSPB boat.
