This week in Suffolk it was announced that a top Suffolk hotel had been sold to new owners.

The property has been sold to entrepreneurs Michael Chittenden and Tammy Madge.

Mr Chittenden, who lived locally earlier in his life, is also the owner of nearby Woodhall Manor, as well as another prestigious exclusive use venue in Cheltenham, Manor By The Lake, along with a number of other properties and regeneration sites.

He said of the purchase of Seckford Hall: “This is very much a dream come true for me. This was where my parents brought me for special occasions when I was a boy – it was always THE place to go.”
