We booked to stay here so we could go to a family wedding nearby. The Trip Advisor reviews are very accurate. Jenny was so helpful when we arrived late and nothing was too much trouble. In the rooms, everything has been thought of from wifi access and small torches in case you need them through to bottles of water. The... More

My wife and I stayed one night in July and enjoyed a very warm welcome. My wife was on crutches as a result of a recent, unforeseen accident and because of this we were offered a larger room for easier manoeuvrability. The following morning Jenny informed us that she had been in contact with the Red Cross and if we... More

I stayed here for one night on business and it was a very nice place. The owner made me feel at home and offered me use of her kitchen so I could warm my dinner up. The room was clean and comfortable with an ensuite bathroom and had a good range of refreshments with fresh milk, much nicer than the... More

My daughter had booked us a nearby spa as my 60th birthday gift and she chose the Old Pear Tree as an overnight stay before as an extra surprise! A lovely find, very clean and cosy with every thing you could wish for provided. We shared a twin room that had it's own private bathroom with shower along the landing... More

Lovely location and very welcoming hosts. We stayed in the El Dorado and the room was lovely with bath robes provided as the bathroom was just round the corner. Very reasonable price and yummy breakfast that was cooked to order by Jenny. The Old Pear Tree is in a fantastic location if you are visiting Clarice House which is less... More

My partner and I stayed here on our wedding night last month. The service was excellent and Jenny was a fantastic host. The rooms were clean, tidy and reasonably priced, and the breakfast was excellent. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.

My husband booked the Old Pear Tree B&B for a surprise for a treat for my first Mothers Day. My husband has NEVER booked any holiday or weekend away weve been on in 13 years. What a marvelous job he did! We only live half an hour away but as we live in such a beautiful part of the country... More

Just returned from a two day stay at the Old Pear Tree, Lovely and clean and comfortable with quality throughout and lots of thoughtful touches by the owners Jenny and Peter. The breakfast prepared by Jenny was really lovely and enjoyable -the chopped fresh fruit was an unexpected extra which made the meal. She is also very good at giving... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed in the family room at 'The Old Pear Tree' on Saturday as we were attending a wedding at Ickworth House. (Ickworth House is only about three miles away from this B&B). Jenny was the perfect hostess. She allowed us into our room at 12 midday to allow us enough time to get ready for... More
