Occupying 10,500 acres of immaculate landscaped gardens, soothing parkland, ancient woodland, and award-winning farmland, Euston Estate comprises a rich tapestry of settings.

It’s no wonder that a wealth of eclectic events are held in these magnificent Suffolk grounds, or that the Estate is regularly publicised as a striking photography, film, and television venue.

The striking, ornate Temple is perfectly set within the scenic heart of the Estate… ideal for a luxurious and magical break away from it all.

Built in 1746, by the celebrated landscape architect and designer William Kent, the octagonal Temple was originally a banqueting house used by the 2nd Duke of Grafton. As such, the surrounding views are truly breath-taking; leading your gaze across lush parkland, the shimmering river Blackbourne, and Euston Hall itself.

Inside you’ll note plenty of stunning original features, all of which have been carefully preserved, alongside contemporary luxuries that set the scene for a relaxing and indulgent holiday.

Sleeping 4-8 guests, you’ll discover an elegant kingsize bedroom on the ground floor, complete with an original Kentian cabinet. There’s a historic brickwork dining space here, too, along with a traditional Aga, and a stylish modern kitchen.

Throw open the French doors and head out to the stunning garden, or take the spiral staircase up to the first floor, and savour those sweeping views from the domed, octagonal living space.
