Our room was spacious clean and comfortable with an en-suite. There was plenty of choice for breakfast from cereals and porridge to full cooked - all very tasty. We liked that it was... More

We've stayed at The Old Rectory twice in the past 6 months and can thoroughly recommend it. It has a real country house feel, tucked away up a long gravel drive and set in beautiful gardens. The hosts Michael & Julie Lennon were so welcoming, providing those little extra touches that made our stays at The Old Rectory so enjoyable,... More

We have enjoyed the most relaxing weekend at this beautiful bed and breakfast. On arrival we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes from Julie with freshly home made cakes and refreshments. Our room (bedroom 1) was well appointed with a super comfortable king size bed, tea / coffee, fruit and other treats, very welcomed after a long journey. The... More

We booked a weekend away here with less than a week's notice. With only three rooms available, we were lucky to get the last room available for November 14-16. We arrived at around 7pm after a long journey on the A12 out of London. The hostess, Julie Lennon, brought us a cream tea for two to our room, which was... More

We had an absolutely lovely stay here. Julie was very accommodating. The room was lovely and big with all the necessary amenities. It is only a short walk to Kessingland beach and is easy to reach Southwold, which is beautiful! We would definitely stay here again!

Thank you John and Lynda; we really enjoyed having you to stay with us and we are so pleased you enjoyed all aspects of your visit. The bench has now been enjoyed by many, but I will always associate it with you and hope the photos bring happy memories of sunny days in Suffolk. Hope that we see you again... More
