A former England and Manchester United footballer has been spotted on holiday in Suffolk. 

Rio Ferdinand was joined by his family at Wilderness Reserve near Saxmundham for an Easter getaway. 

It comes after comedian Jack Whitehall was also spotted at the luxury resort over the weekend

Posting on social media, Ferdinand said he was in "chill mode" while on his break in the county. 

Nestled in the east of the county, the luxury staycation is set within 8,000 acres of private estates and has almost 100 bedrooms on site.

The reserve has more than a dozen properties on offer, including cottages and barns, as well as the Grade II-listed Sibton Park Georgian country manor.

Activities on offer include cycling on Pashley bikes, rowing and paddle boarding on its private lakes and shooting.

Spa treatments are also offered in its dedicated spa houses.

As well as the recent visit of Whitehall, the likes of Cheryl, Rochelle Humes and the Made in Chelsea cast are among those who have visited Wilderness Reserve in recent years.
