Bruisyard Hall, Bruisyard, Suffolk

One of only four abbeys of the Poor Clares, Bruisyard Hall was founded by Maud, Countess of Ulster, in 1354 and was occupied by many courtly ladies. Set within a 700-acre estate, it remains the idyllic country retreat that she wanted it to be. The Hall was rebuilt by the Hare family after the dissolution of the monasteries and incorporates a "priest’s hole" as they remained staunchly Roman Catholic under Elizabeth I. The owner is a direct descendant of Sir Thomas Rous who inherited the Tudor house in 1611.
