Peter Thompson and his team of butlers & household staff are a wonderful compliment to the hospitality that flows naturally from Hugh & Lara Somerleyton. Whilst not a hotel, Somerleyton guests are made to feel at home and are looked after beautifully. In addition Alan Leech, who has worked with the family for 15 years and produces wonderful menus seasonally based on estate produce, a few carefully selected local producers and sustainable North Sea catch. Probably the best thing about Somerleyton is the number of glorious places we can entertain you from the sumptuous candlelit ballroom to the summery splendour of the old palm house, the intimacy of the family dining room to the full length and fabuloud Winter Garden.
