... saying goodbye to Uncle Dick we drove to nearby Dedham for lunch in the very old Malborough Head pub which Uncle Dick and Gwen had taken us to in 2000. The food was quite nice. Back at the Chudleigh we had a quiet afternoon. We walked around the town and found some bubble wrap and a box to pack the jugs Aunty Jennie has given me to take home. We also looked in at the pier. Phil was very keen to win big on the 2 p machine. He ...

“I wandered everywhere, through cities and countries wide. And everywhere I went, the world was on my side.”
Well fro the 9th till the morning of the 11th i stayed with Brittney's friend Katie and her two daughters. These girls reminded me of my sister and myself when we were kids. This was a good time for laundry and recovery. I also needed to shop for a new adapter because the one i brought wasnt working. I also had to get a transformer because of the voltage of all my stuff. Lots of prep work for the next couple of days. Last night (10th) was when i met my sister's friend ...
... and an old priority (church). Most of it got torn down by king henry when he took over all the churches to claim back his power over England. Fortunately, the facade of the priority was retained. The carvings look amazing! Framingham castle - a castle site where only the outer walls remain. Apparently a sign of wealth back hen was chimneys. So this wall was full of chimneys even though only 3 of them ...
... Lefkada. There was a series of four major earthquakes, each stronger than the other, culminating on August 12th in a tremor that measured 7.2 on the Richter scale and lasted some 50 seconds, leaving a trail of havoc and tragedy. The whole island of Kefalonia was lifted up by some 60 cm, as it still is today. The original water level marks can still be seen all around the coastline.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hintlesham Hall
Just staid one night and already want to go back, the hotel location is a heaven of peace within a beautiful park.
I have today enjoyed another lunch at Hintlesham Hall Hotel. I am fortunate to be able to visit Hintlesham Hall regularly and to my mind the service, standard of cuisine and value for money are without equal in Mid Suffolk. Indeed, I have recently had dinner at Claridges which was pleasant but very expensive. I much prefer and enjoy my times at Hintlesham Hall Hotel.
I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel in May this year. My aim was for a week of rest and relaxation and the hotel and its staff certainly provided me with both. The room was wonderful, clean and kept to a very high standard. Room service provided me with regular drinks and afternoon tea, all of which arrived promptly and beautifully presented. The grounds of the hotel are wonderful and provided me with relaxing walks and superb areas in which to sit. The staff provided one of the highest services that I have received at any hotel, from the moment you were greeted at the front door to the moment they loaded by luggage into my car on the day I left. The main section of the hotel has been maintained to a high standard and this makes dining the most wonderful experience. There was a choice of menu at each meal, from a full English or continental breakfast, to one of the most stunning evening menus I have seen for some time. At each meal I felt well cared for and doted upon, while dining on beautifully prepared and presented cuisine. I would have no problem recommending this hotel to others.
My wife & I visited this hotel for a wedding reception. We found faded, dirty furniture, torn curtains & an overall feeling of maintainance long over-due. The gent's toilet was smelly & not regularly tidied & cleaned. The hotel appears not to have a coherent policy on smoking. As non-smokers, there was no escape indoors. We would NEVER return as residents.
From the start of my visit all my needs were anticipated and I was able to leave all my arrangements in the capable hands of the Hall's staff.
I was greeted at the front door of this beautiful hotel by name and invited to leave my car keys which was parked for me. I was shown with my husband to the reception desk and my bags transported to my room - a nice change to the usual struggle that one experiences at most hotels at check in.
Terrible value for money
Hintlesham Hall advertises itself as one of the best small luxury hotels in the world. The reality is very different! At an overall cost of £300 for one night I would not have expected, taps that fall off, luke warm breakfast, my wife and I being offered seats at seperate tables at breakfast! and a bar that is essentialy a trestle table covered in a blanket. The mini bar offers corked wines but no bottle opener and a bottle of wine that was brought to our room on Friday night had still not been removed when we left on Sunday. The levels of service are in general very poor and come nowhere near the price you are expected to pay.
Don't Even Think About It!
What a disappointment for our Mothers Day weekend. It all begins with not being able to open the front door as the place is so poorly maintained it makes one weep. It was once very grand I'm sure. We had the Queen Anne Suite which was a whooping 295 pounds per night! For that we had a mattress that leaned considerably, thread bare furniture in the lounge, dusty public areas, walls and doors that hadn't seen a coat of paint and to top it off, were charged for the newspaper that we were asked if we wanted!!!
Beautiful country hotel
Excellent hotel set in beautiful grounds. Within 15 miles of Constable country & under 10 miles from Ipswich. Good sized double four poster bedroom in the main hall. Room was upgraded without request. Very good value is the lunch which seems poular with non hotel residents & is priced around £27.50 inc drink + glass of wine + coffee.
No hesitation in returning to this hotel where the staff are very friendly & helpful.
Look no further!
Ideal for a special occasion or just a few nights away. The food is excellent, the staff are brilliant and the hotel is just wonderful.
