Spotlight: Meetings in the Wilderness
Over 20 years ago, Billionaire John Hunt purchased Sibton Hall and estate, Suffolk. Initially this was to be renovated as a private home but during he decided the hall would be better suited to hire for occasions such as family gatherings, weddings, meetings and corporate events. As he was hugely successful he then proceeded to renovate and purchase other properties on the 5500-acre estate.
Properties at Wilderness can be rented individually or as a complete buyout. There are 50 rooms at present. If you were to hire the main Hall it has an Orangery, a wedding licence for up to 168 guests, blackout blinds, projector and dropdown screen so it is suitable for meetings.
Pricing varies depending on what you want to use the facilities for, property, and season. The hire will include use of the outdoor swimming pool, Pashley bikes, paddle boards and rowing boats on the lake, in Summer of course!
