Booked family into this delightful B&B. The welcome was very friendly and the room was very comfortable. Chose a double room with en suite. Spotless throughout. Breakfast was amazing, starting with fresh fruit and yoghurt followed by full English and toast. Nothing was too much trouble. This is a small B & B and guests really feel at home. If... More

An overnight stop in a lovely, clean and comfortable house set in a beautiful garden. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh coffee and a magnificent fry up. Lots of complimentary goodies and even his and hers fluffy soft dressing gowns!

We visited the Old Pear Tree when coming to Bury St Edmunds (it's about 10 minutes drive away). It's on the A road, but traffic is minimal at night time. It's a lovely B&B, nicely laid out and well appointed. There is a garden which would be beautiful to sit out in in the summer, and plenty of countryside around... More

This is our second stray here and both times we have rated it the best accommodation we have ever stayed in. The rooms are superbly appointed and meticulously clean, looking as though spring cleaning has just finished. The breakfast provides everything you could wish for including lovely fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries etc.) even in December, and the most flavoursome... More

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
