About High Lodge Suffolk

We strive to be recognised as the East of England’s premier destination for specialist sports and leisure holidays, clay shooting, weddings and corporate hospitality. We will achieve this by our dedication to uncompromising quality, building a reputation for service excellence and continued investment in both our product and our team.

Created over 30 years ago by 14-times FITASC Sporting, World, European and British Champion John Bidwell, High Lodge nestles among 120 acres of tranquil woodland on the Suffolk coast and is home to an array of first-class facilities including luxury lodges with private hot tubs, world-class clay shooting, fishing, an inviting restaurant and clubhouse and a state-of-the-art function suite to name a few.

We’re a friendly bunch, proud of our family heritage and our independent status. We don’t take short cuts or half measures – perfection with a professional attitude.

We are inspired by a love of what we do and the experiences we help deliver. We listen, adapt to our customers needs and provide tailored packages in a timely manner.

Our team truly ‘go the extra mile’ leaving nothing to chance in exceeding customer expectations. You will struggle to find the same quality facilities and service for the price we charge.

We are a living, breathing, warm and welcoming business, not superficial or artificial. We consistently try to deliver the standards others aspire to match.

We are entirely single-minded when it comes to creating first-class facilities and customer experiences to match. You can always rely on us to deliver exactly what we say we’ll deliver.
