Roos Hall (or sometimes Rose Hall) is a manor house and former manor ½ a mile (¾km) west of Beccles in Suffolk. It is a Grade I listed building.[1]

It is said to be among the most haunted houses in England, and to have the Devil's footprint imprinted on one of its walls.[2] It was owned by the Suckling family in the 17th century having been bought by Sir John Suckling in 1600. It subsequently passed to the Rich family following the marriage between Sir John Suckling's widow and Sir Edwin Rich.[3] According to English Heritage, it is once again owned by a member of the Suckling family.[1]
