It's funny. Sometimes things are just "right". I stayed at Highwaymans for one night on business. I just wanted a good value bed for the night and a breakfast. Some hotels can be a bit impersonal so on occasions like this I go for a B&B. My criteria for a great B&B are simple: comfy bed, decent shower, good breakfast,... More

Having got lost trying to find it, I was pleased to drive towards it in the dusk down towards an isolated cluster of buildings lost in time. Leaving the car it was the most perfect serene setting with the odd country noises breaking the silence. The room was large and homely and bathroom simple and classic. The door was a... More

I was recently taken on a surprise birthday weekend away to the Highwayman's by my partner and was very pleasantly surprised by a beautiful picturesque building with fabulous views. The accommodation was clean and spacious and breakfast was delicious. This turned out to be a very memorable weekend for me with a marriage proposal in the grounds of the building.... More

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
