The Highwaymans Bed & Breakfast is one of the best places we've ever stayed in. Our room was huge, on the ground-floor with big windows, and with its own patio with seats outside overlooking a beautiful garden. All facilities were available and everything was spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Highwaymans is... More

I stayed at the Highwaymans for 4 nights while taking exams in nearby Higham. My room was spacious and light - great value for money. Lovely breakfast served every morning, great start to each day! Unfortunately one night I didn't get much sleep as a child was screaming throughout the night but I suppose this can't be helped! Very understanding... More

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Highwaymans b&b, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Our room was large and spotlessly clean with a wonderfully comfortable bed. Adjoining our room was a twin room for our two boys complete with books and toys for them to play with (a great touch). The owner Juliet is a lovely hostess... More

Our first trip to Suffolk and we were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation laid on for us. Very spacious and clean rooms, excellent attentive staff and the cooked breakfast was first class. All in all, very good.

We had a super stay at Highwaymans, staff were friendly and helpful. The setting were beautiful and great place to switch off from the world. We sat outside in the sun on arrival which was wonderful. I would highly recommend if you need a place to stay.

Being in the English country in an old vineyard, you can enjoy the quiet and the relaxation of a classy B@B. Juliet is kind hostess. Stylish breakfast in the Gallery. I lived there for about two months and I strongly recommend it.
