The perfect backdrop for your big day


Sotterley is set in extensive parkland, overlooking a tranquil lake with 400 acres of stunning ancient woodland. Beautifully tucked away, yet only a short drive from the county’s Heritage Coast and Southwold

We believe every wedding is unique, so from formal and traditional to relaxed, vintage or festival style, your wedding is only limited by your imagination. Our dedicated, experienced wedding planner will ensure the day comes together just as you dreamed

Church Weddings & Civil Blessings


Exclusively yours for the day, choose a civil blessing beside the lake or amongst mature woodlands, or a church ceremony at the 12th century St Margaret’s Anglican church (seats 100).  After the ceremony, wander to your marquee celebrations on foot, stopping en-route for drinks and canapes by the Hall, gardens or lake, and pause for stunning photograph opportunities
Whether you are looking for a small, romantic gathering, or a big, grand knees up, our award winning event planner is waiting to guide you
No need to worry about limited parking or finishing at 11pm – with only peaceful countryside around you, party until midnight with carriages at 12:30pm

The Details….

We can recommend a selection of dedicated caterers that offer locally produced seasonal menus and tantalising packages, as well as the opportunity to create your own unique catering experience. Hog roasts, street vendors and evening buffets for additional guests are not a problem

We also work with some fantastic marquee companies with great vision to help you design your space – and have solutions for all power, equipment and layout requests!
