About us

Our journey started in 1996 when we purchased the Thorpeness Hotel & Golf Club, a beautiful art deco hotel surrounded by a fantastic James Braid designed golf course with an impressive national reputation.

This was swiftly followed by the purchase of the Thorpeness County Club in 1997, right on the beach and a perfect venue for a quintessentially English wedding, function or event.

Our first hotel in Aldeburgh was the purchase of the White Lion Hotel, in 1999, refurbished with a stunning bar & brasserie, something different for the town of Aldeburgh.

In 2001, the Brudenell Hotel extended our portfolio, right on the beach in Aldeburgh, offering a stylish stay with great dining, at this fashionable coastal town.

Our first inland purchase took place in 2005 with the purchase of the iconic Swan Hotel in the heart of England's finest medieval village of Lavenham, offering enchanting and exceptional accommodation and dining. In 2015 we converted a linked building into a beautiful 5 bubble award spa - Weavers' House Spa.

2008 saw the purchase of the boutique inn hotel the Crown at Woodbridge.

In 2016, we converted a function room at the White Lion Hotel into a first class exotic Indian restaurant - Sea Spice in Aldeburgh.
