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

The first views as we approached the property were excellent,however once inside our expectations fell quickly.We had read reviews and looked at photographs but the interior did not match them at all . We booked a twin room for two nights expecting to get a room with two comfortable beds but the bed which I had was in a small... 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.

Rang to book accommodation this morning 5 June 2015. Carol quoted me a price of £60 per room for two rooms. She then rang back fifteen minutes later to inform me that she had made a mistake and the cost was - in fact - £80 and £120. I asked her to speak to the owner and see what could... More

The B&B is engaged in events such as wakes and clay shooting which seems to be the focus of their interest. We were not welcomed on arrival (a wake was in progress) and from a list of names on the reception door we were directed to our room which had our name stuck on the door. Breakfast was a self...
