We knew Retreat East was the perfect venue for our wedding the moment we found it. Large enough for all our closest family and friends to stay, so beautiful that it felt incredibly special and relaxed enough to make it feel like our day. The staff were amazing from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, and the food and service were fantastic. I couldn’t have asked for anything more; it was perfect.
It was so special to share such a stunning part of Suffolk with our friends and family; The Great Barn was the perfect backdrop to host every part of our celebration. Alongside this, the entire Retreat East team helped enable the BEST day. It was everything we'd hoped for & more... with so many moments and memories that we'll cherish - thank you again.
We first of all wanted to say the most enormous thank you for the phenomenal effort made by you and all the team- the day went perfectly, and we can’t thank you enough for this.
Retreat East helped us make a special few days into something magical. They went above and beyond to help us create a bespoke setting for our wedding celebrations, allowing us to blend our two cultures. The staff are unreal, they were so kind and warm, making us and our guests feel so at home. Thank you again!
