We knew we’d found somewhere seriously special when we discovered Toad Hall. It was just the place we’d been dreaming of.
Somewhere far enough away from the coast to avoid the crowds but with glorious walks, runs and cycle routes from our doorstep – and within easy reach of all our favourite beaches and pretty market towns.
There was even an unloved, dilapidated garage facing out on to the cornfields that was crying out to be transformed into a light-filled yoga studio and fully kitted out gym. We knew East Suffolk’s ancient forests, nature reserves and open-air swimming spots were the perfect training ground for a man with a triathon and Ironman addiction too.
Our backgrounds are in fitness and fashion and we share a passion for fun, high-end experiences, along with being active in the great outdoors. Between us, we’ve been nurturing dreams of creating a wellness-based retreat with a luxury vibe. So we thought about every detail – from power showers and fire pits, to the luxury touches you’d find in a 5-star hotel and laying the foundations for a restorative night’s sleep. Peace and a sense of escape are priorities here so we decided to make Toad for over 16s only.
We founded Toad Hall Lodges so we could share everything we love about our Suffolk life – and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
