Otley Hall

Otley Hall is a Grade 1 listed, 15th/16th century moated hall, surrounded by 10 acres of stunning gardens.
We welcome organised groups, small parties or individuals for guided tours of both the hall and gardens throughout the year by appointment. Described by Bettley & Pevsner as 'The outstanding individual house...one of the most interesting 15th & 16th Century houses in Suffolk', the hall has long been regarded as the oldest house in Suffolk to survive largely intact.

Open Gardens
Our gardens are open to the public every Wednesday 3rd May-27th September from 11am-5pm for just £3 entrance fee. The fully licenced garden cafe will also open 3rd May-27th September 11am-4pm serving tea, coffee, light lunches, locally made cakes and bakes and even a glass of wine!

Hire Otley Hall for your function
Our gardens and function rooms are available for hire. They make an ideal setting for informal club and society outings, private dinners and parties. The rooms also make for an ideal 'get away from it all' conference and away day facility.

Retreat Day Programme
We also run a full and varied programme of Retreat Days from March to December. The days are for anyone who needs space, time and peace to relax and reflect, an opportunity to grow spiritually and a chance to enjoy beautiful surroundings. You do not need to be a Christian or of any faith, simply someone who would benefit from taking some time for yourself away from the stresses of your normal daily life.
