A friend and myself stayed at this gorgeous house for five nights in a lovely spacious room . We were warmly welcomed by Julie and it seemed nothing was too much trouble for her. Great ambience and atmosphere. She thought of everything, down to homemade scones on arrival and advising us on excellent local restaurants. Using the delightful summerhouse in... More

We had such a fantastic weekend at The Old Rectory. Everything from start to finish was a real treat - from a really warm welcome from Julie to the incredible, locally sourced breakfast and amazing scones. The Old Rectory only has three rooms, which makes it feel extra personal. The gardens are beautiful, with a few hidden benches and corners... More

The best scones and cream on the planet, great rooms, comfortable beds, an idyllic ambience, relaxed atmosphere and great, caring service from hostess Sally and a breakfast fit for a kin. What more could one ask?i simply could not fault it. The Old Rectory thoroughly deserves its five-star reputation.

A real hidden gem on the Suffolk coast found by pure chance, all due to my brother's car breaking down! Michael rescued him and that is how we heard about this fabulous B & B. Julie made us so welcome after a long drive from Gloucestershire. We had Room 1 which was enormous and so comfortable. It is not surprising... More

We went for a brief honeymoon and were blown away by the lovely room, in a Georgian house with a beautiful garden. The hospitality of our hosts, Julie and Michael, was first rate and we will definitely be returning to what is Kessingland's best kept secret!
