Set within a tranquil wellness retreat in the heart of Suffolk, Retreat East offers a taste of wedding heaven. Designed by owner and architect Dominic Richards, the beautifully restored dairy farm includes an original 16th-century farmhouse and 16 stylishly converted barns with beamed ceilings, freestanding bathtubs, and a country chic vibe. Surrounded by 35 acres of countryside and wildflower meadows, it’s a quintessentially English setting. Whether you’re looking for an exclusive-use wedding or a smaller, more intimate, affair, you can enjoy a tailor-made experience for your special day.

Celebrate in style
Nestled in its own private walled garden, The Farmhouse is licensed for ceremonies and oozes character and charm, or you can tie the knot in the oak-framed Great Barn, ideal for larger gatherings, it can host up to 150 guests and is the perfect place to continue your celebrations. There’s a bar area next to it where family and friends can mix and mingle and a terrace to relax and unwind, cocktail in hand.

You can spend the night before your wedding at The Inglenook, complete with a free-standing bar and festoon lighting, you can toast marshmallows by the fire, sip mulled wine and dance the night away.

We love...
The on-site accommodation and luxury spa which is perfect for pre– or post-wedding R&R.
