Nettlestead is a dispersed village and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk in eastern England.The surrounding villages of Nettlestead include Somersham (the closest), Little Blakenham, Baylham, Barking, Willisham and Offton.

In Nettlestead there are two manors: The Chace and High Hall.

The Original Manor belonged to the Earls of Richmond; passed to Peter de Savoy, the Tiptofts, the Despencers and the Wentworths; and gave to the last the title of Baron. Nettlestead Hall (the Chace) was the Manor-house; retains an ancient gateway, bearing the arms of the Wentworths.

High Hall dates back to the 16th Century and was built by Huguenots who had fled from France during series of religious persecutions.
