Absolutely amazing place from the moment you drive up the gravel drive & get your 1st glimpse of the stunning grounds & beautiful B & B. After our drive there we had a very warm welcome from the owners Michael & Julie. To relax, we had cream tea with gorgeous home baked scones which were served to us in the... More

Spent a couple of nights in this luxurious B&b. very friendly hosts welcomed us to their beautiful house and gardens. Relaxing setting, excellent food. Ideal location for exploring Suffolk's heritage coastline. You wouldn't find a better B&B anywhere in England. We will be back!

This was our first time visiting this part of the country and we were not dissapointed! The old rectory is stunning inside and out. The grounds are amazing, the rooms superb and the hospitality first rate. We arrived early evening and were welcomed with home baked scones and tea served to us in the most amazing garden I have ever... More

We went for a few days away and was wonderful! Everything from arrival to departure was brilliant. Totally relaxing and a beautiful place. We went because we wanted to revisit Southwold where we stayed as children. It was a short drive or picturesque walk to Southwold which was perfect. The service was excellent throughout our stay and the food throughout... More

Beautiful house and gardens. Really lovely hospitable hosts. Delicious breakfasts with plenty of choice and fresh fruit salad taken in beautiful spacious dining room at a table shared with the other guests (only 3 guests rooms in all) which was great to have even more good company. Stayed for 5 nights and really loved the break. Would definitely recommend.

After a long journey (6 hours plus owing to roadworks) we had a lovely welcome from Julie, including tea and home made cake. Feeling revived we went out to explore the local area and were impressed by the garden and the beach. We had a very comfortable stay in the larger room, which had lovely views over the garden.

Booked room one on the spur of the moment and did not regret it. Michael and Julie gave us a very warm welcome, as did their two delightful dogs. Tea and scones in the two acre garden was very welcome at the end of our journey. Our room was furnished to a high standard and spotlessly clean, with a lovely... More
