Chose this place due to a reunion of a family of golden retrievers, three of whom lived at the property, another four descended for the weekend. I apologise if this caused any of the other guests any inconvenience. An excellent location, set in its own extensive grounds, this B&B offers everything for a discerning dog owner, including the resident dogs.... More

Absolutely stunned at how beautiful this place was. The owners were very accommodating and friendly, organising an early check in for me and my guests. Beautiful accommodation - a home from home with a stunning view! Very comfortable bed. Good shower in the morning - didn't sample breakfast. Slight downside was only two teabags and milk cartons for accommodation for... More

I was quite disappointed with this accommodation. I read the reviews and unfortunately it did not work out for me. I needed to pay 50% to confirm my booking, they took the whole amount. I came in 30 min too early. If you don't like buzzing noises, don't choose room number 7. It has a terrible noise, the owner came... More

I needed to attend a funeral, not the best way to start, and just looked for a convenient B&B. I was travelling on my own and so didn't need to worry about other peoples needs. I found Highwaymans and booked, the price was very keen for a room with breakfast and was close to Bury St Edmunds. I was totally... More

I visited Highwaymans for the first time yesterday. I had been meaning to visit sooner, having heard great reveiws, and I was not disappointed. The location is idyllic, reminding me very much of a French Domaine set amongst gently rolling fields of vineyards. There's so much to see with the gallery and a number of local Artisans who use the... More

What a hidden gem - Needed a place to stay for a business meeting, near by. I was unable to arrive until 0100hrs in the morning due to a Flight delay. Owners/staff were very accommodating, leaving a personalised message for me, with instructions on where my room was. I was required to leave early the next morning, but was impressed... More

We needed a venue to do a wine tasting and a place to stay the night. Highwaymans was able to fully accommodate this easily with their gallery and B&B. Its a fantastic size, modern and clean and provided us with a great place to do the tasting. We needed two rooms for the night and had a very comfortable stay... More

Great welcoming place to stay away from the 'rat race'. Clean comfortable room, great shower (a pet hate of mine is a poor shower) which always a good start. Lovely countryside setting. Had a lovely traditional breakfast. Would definitely stay again. Thanks

We had a truly wonderful time at Highwaymans; from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Coming from London our stay was just what we needed, stunning walks, lovely food and endless space for our 3 children to explore. The owners of Highwaymans couldn't have been more helpful, we were made to feel so welcome (we didn't want... More

A beautiful little B&B tucked away in the fields of Risby. The owners, Adam & Juliet, were welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. I couldn't recommend it more.
