Haughley Park is a Grade 1 listed red-brick manor house of 1620 set in gardens, park and woodland. The north wing was rebuilt in the Georgian style in 1820.

Six acres of landscaped gardens surround the buildings, including a main lawn on the north side of the house, Woodland garden (or Dell), Walled kitchen garden planned along Edwardian lines, and Carriage turn and round lawn in front of the house.

There is a large fish pond equidistant between the House and Barn, and in recent years a new garden area was created close to the Barn to be used predominantly as a drinks lawn.

A fine brick and timbered 17th-century barn can be hired for weddings and events.


This property is not open for day visitors.

Fun Facts

The house was built by Sir John Sulyard whose family had been granted the land by Mary Tudor, sister of King Henry VIII.

For almost two centuries the house remained in the Sulyard family, and was the centre of a 2500 acre agricultural estate, mostly tenanted.


The barn is an idyllic setting for a wedding with civil ceremony, reception and evening party all in one place.

The Barn can accommodate Civil ceremonies up to a maximum of 100, and wedding receptions up to a maximum of 120 dining. Evening party numbers can increase to a maximum of 240.

We offer two different hire-periods: Saturday hire and Wednesday hire. This gives exclusive use of the venue over three days, so you are able to takes things at a really comfortable pace and have lots of personal involvement in arranging things according to your own preference.

Complementing the exclusive and relaxed hire offered at the Barn, the Farmhouse is the ideal place to be together with family and friends and enhance the enjoyment of your special occasion.

Hired on a self-catering basis for a two night minimum stay, the farmhouse has five large bedrooms and can sleep around 10 people.
