Why We Love This Hotel
- Satis House is a "delightful 18th-century, Grade-II listed property", says The AA
- The hotel's 2-AA-Rosette restaurant serves modern English cuisine using locally sourced & seasonal produce
- Nearby attractions include the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve & the coastal town of Southwold
Set within three acres of parkland in Suffolk, a region known for its "undulating countryside and sleepy, flint-built villages" (The Daily Telegraph), the location of Satis House is a great base from which to explore the Suffolk coast.
The coastal town of Southwold, which Lonely Planet calls "one of the very prettiest of Eastern England's seaside resorts," is a 20-minute drive from Satis House. The RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve, which has a variety of countryside walks through stunning coastal, wetland, woodland and heathland scenery, is 15 minutes' drive from the hotel. The easy-going university city of Norwich, with its "rich tapestry of meandering alleys sprinkled with architectural jewels" (Lonely Planet), is just over an hour away by car.
Satis House has a 2-AA-Rosette restaurant that serves modern English cuisine, such as slow-roast Norfolk duck leg with white bean cassoulet, inspired by the seasonal produce of the area. The restaurant also serves Sunday lunch and traditional afternoon tea. Breakfast is served in the hotel's private dining room.
"The individually decorated bedrooms are tastefully appointed and thoughtfully equipped," says The AA Hotel Guide 2015. Superior Double and Twin Rooms have flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
