History of the Family Business

Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa is a subsidiary of The Boxford Group, a family-owned business, founded by Bill and Devora Peake in the 1940s.

The Peake family has been farming in Suffolk for well over 60 years; from a small 120-acre apple farm, they used their entrepreneurial skills to develop a thriving and diverse group of companies which have grown to include a hotel, golf, spa and conferencing business, and fruit growing and processing, on around 1,000 acres of land.
