An historic manor house in beautiful countryside on the Suffolk/Norfolk border

The Depperhaugh was built for a 19th century British admiral and we are sure you will love the rural location as much as he did.

The peaceful setting is the perfect place for high quality nursing, residential, dementia and respite care.

This popular home is just outside the Suffolk village of Hoxne, close to Eye and the neighbouring market town of Diss. There is quick access to wider areas of Suffolk and Norfolk via the A140, A143 and A1066.

Residents love the space and the grand feel of The Depperhaugh which has been decorated and furnished in a way that complements the historic building.
You cannot fail to be impressed by the extensive grounds that are the perfect place for outdoor activities or a gentle stroll.
Residents and visitors still enjoy the timeless views of the Suffolk countryside so beloved of Admiral Sir Baldwin Walker when he designed and built the house in the 1860s.
