Perhaps your dream leisure break would mean hiding away for the weekend in a peaceful location where health spa and beauty treatments are available to pamper yourself into the perfect state of bliss, or perhaps a break somewhere with access to a first-class, fully equipped gymnasium or golf course would be more your ideal.
Whatever your requirements and preferences, there are plenty of leisure break accommodation options available for you to choose from in Suffolk, each one leaving you feeling completely relaxed before you return home.
One of the ultimate leisure break options comes to you from Hintlesham Hall Hotel, Ipswich.

There are also various health & beauty and other specialist treatments available that can be booked individually or as part of Hintlesham Hall's Pamper Days offer, which consists of a choice of three one-hour relaxing treatments plus a three-course lunch and other bonuses.
