A lovely B&B! On arrival we were offered a pot of tea and homemade cake which we enjoyed in the beautiful garden. The room was up a flight of stairs and was very well laid out. A lovely big bed, beautiful spacious bathroom and good facilities. The owners Debbie and David were very lovely and friendly, and the breakfast was... More

If you are travelling in Suffolk near Cambridge or Newmarket and like the country atmosphere, a large comfy room, gracious hosts and an easy walk to a pub with great pub food, then look no further than Chequer Cottage. Apart from the room, your rewards will be meeting a Debbie and David and lovely breakfast served in the 350 year-old... More

This little cottage offers comfort and class for a small "off the beaten path" beautifully located accommodation, the staff are very polite and informative to the local area. The tea and homemade cake on arrival was most welcome but the breakfast was unbelievable and would thoroughly recommend this cottage to any couple.

Thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage which oozes luxury and comfort. Lovely touches, such as bathrobes and the divine homemade chocolate orange cake made our stay all the more perfect. We had booked a Vineyard Tour at nearby Chilford Hall and asked if we could leave our car at the cottage early in the morning which the lovely owners, Debbie and... More

Our first impression of the cottage and gardens was impressive, the owner greeted us with a very warm welcome and showed us up to the accommodation strait away. The accommodation was outstanding i must mention the bed because it was so comfortable and inviting. The breakfast was again outstanding... More

I needed a little getaway and was surprised at the prices quoted these days, particularly reading reviews of places with "tired decor, feeling the springs of the mattress, irritating noise, room was a broom cupboard", etc that I became quite despondent about finding something half decent at a reasonable price. Then I found Chequer Cottage. This is a 5-star stay... More

Have just returned from a one night stay at Chequer Cottage. The room was very comfortable, with lots of thoughtful little extra touches such as bathrobes, sherry, and ginger cookies! The drench shower was fabulous, and everywhere was immaculately clean and in great condition. The breakfast was also great - especially the home-made bread and jams. Out hosts Debbie and... More

We have just returned from a night's stay. We wanted a nice peaceful break away and we got it. The accommodation was immaculate, well presented and Debbie and David were fantastic hosts. It seemed that nothing would be too much trouble. We ment for dinner at the old red lion, it was also lovely. I would certainly recommend this place... More
