Our Passion

The Little Bradley Estate is home to the Clifton-Brown family. The estate is run by Colin & Emily who have lived here since 1994. Over that time they have continuously looked to create new opportunities on the estate whilst still farming the land to the highest environmental and conservation standards. Many 1000’s of trees and hedging plants have been and continue to be planted around the estate along with special pollen and nectar strips for the wildlife. Diversification has been essential, firstly with the transformation of an old timber-framed grain store into a popular local wedding venue – The Garden Barn at Little Bradley Hall – and now with it’s expanding portfolio of country retreats.

Teaming with the sights and sounds of a diverse bounty of local wildlife, Little Bradley Estate is a picturesque patchwork of manicured fields, wildflower meadows and bustling hedgerows, well-known for its sensational sunsets throughout the year. A far cry from noisy farmyards, guests can enjoy the very best parts of staying on a private, family-run farm. From the daily wood-pigeon wake-up call, to the many horses and sheep that graze the land, it a supremely tranquil and secluded corner of Suffolk, that we are delighted to share the secrets of with our guests.

We pride ourselves on our personal approach and attention to detail –

From personally responding to every enquiry, to greeting guests with freshly baked goods for their arrival – we want to create memorable experiences.

“We had a fabulous stay at Cowlinge Hall during October half term. Celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary with all the family, the hall was a perfect place to do this. Absolutely beautifully decorated throughout, it felt like we were living in an interiors magazine for the week! Great location for exploring rural Suffolk.


“We had the most fantastic stay at Norley Moat House! The house was extremely comfortable and well decorated, with a fully stocked kitchen and everything one could need to feel at home. It was close to some great local pubs and outings in Newmarket.”


The lovely lodge is set in beautiful surrounding countryside. Everything you could possibly need is provided for a really enjoyable stay.”


“Cowlinge Hall is a beautiful property, perfectly laid out for our group of ten adults celebrating the New Year. We could all fit around the dining table comfortably and there were multiple relaxation areas with exceptionally comfortable sofas! The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with cookware and utensils. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also finished to a great standard – the whole group slept well!”


“We had a fantastic time celebrating our parents 50th Wedding anniversary. The house is well equipped with everything you need, lots of different breakout areas for everyone to have their own space. Beds really comfortable with good quality bedding (a priority for me!)! We had planned some day trips but the area was so lovely we just stayed locally- going on a local walks, and using the garden games. Our children enjoyed riding their bikes up and down the lane and playing football on the field outside the house.


“Really lovely house and grounds with everything you’d need, even a selection of games for the garden. We had a great stay.”


“We had the most wonderful stay at Norley Moat House. It was the perfect place for a family get together. Lovely interior design, beautiful artwork but more importantly it felt like home. My family were over the moon about our stay.”


Lodge Cottage is a most relaxing and comfortable place to stay, especially if you are seeking peace and tranquillity. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with easy access to so many interesting places.”
