Sibton Park - Wilderness
A unique luxury collection of manors, farmhouses, country cottages and follies in the heart of rural Suffolk
Set within a 4,500 acre private country estate two hours from London, Wilderness is a unique luxury collection of manors, farmhouses, country cottages and follies in the heart of rural Suffolk.
Sibton Park Estate was developed from the 17th Century on land to the east of Sibton Abbey, a picturesque ruin itself dating from 1150.
The current house, Sibton Park, was built in 1827 by Robert Sayer, once Sheriff of Suffolk, to replace an earlier Queen Anne house. It sleeps 27 people in breathtaking en-suite bedrooms, each room having its own name, including the dollhouse bedroom or the Tartan bedroom for example. This Grade II listed Georgian country house, designed by the celebrated architect Decimus Burton, features giant pilasters and a central bay of full height Ionic columns forming an open semi-circular portico to create a dramatic entrance.
Sibton Park is set amid hundreds of acres of rolling parkland, Arcadian pleasure grounds and woodland and overlooks a large ornamental lake and its own sweeping serpentine drive. Guests are invited to enjoy this five-star country house with the option to book extra services like a chef, a butler, waiting staff and daily housekeeping for the duration of their stay.
The manor also has at disposal numerous reception rooms, games rooms with among others, billiards and table tennis, a private gym and even a private cinema!
Elsewhere on the Estate, there are other luxury farmhouses and cottages which boast refined interiors and contemporary amenities such as underfloor heating, wood burning stoves and en suite bedrooms featuring endless piping hot water.
Each of them can come with daily housekeeping (if required) including whilst other staff, such as chefs and waiting staff, can be booked as part of the five-star service tailored to your requirements.
From the thrill of the shoot to the relaxation of an indulgent spa treatment and from a guided ‘morning chorus’ birdsong tour to a dip in our spectacular swimming pool and hot tub, there are a wide range of Estate activities for guests to enjoy during their stay at Wilderness Reserve.
Some of these activities, such as the ‘morning chorus’ birdsong tour and ‘moth breakfast’ underline the commitment to English nature, which is at the heart of everything at Wilderness. The conservation efforts mean the Estate is becoming a haven for wildlife with well over 100 different bird species.
Over 2,000 nest boxes have been erected, including 38 owl boxes as part of the Suffolk Barn Owl project and Wilderness Reserve is home to significant breeding populations of risk species. The estate is establishing a reed bed for migratory wetland species, particularly the Reed Bunting and Reed Warbler and there are significant mammal, amphibian, moth and butterfly populations developing through the planting of woodland, field trees and hedgerows and the introduction of ponds, lakes and meadows.
