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

Spent 2 nights at The Old Pear Tree whilst visiting family. Could not fault it in any way. Large room, beautifully clean, comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, even a torch to use in the night to find our way to the loo! Breakfast was perfect, set us up for the day ahead. Thank you for a lovely stay. We... More

Just had the one night at the Old Pear Tree. The B&B is located on the A143 a few miles out of Bury and despite its address it is not in the centre of Whepstead. If travelling at night it is best to look out for the illuminated sign on the left as you travel north. There is plenty of... More

A wonderful find. This B/B is excellent value for money. It is several miles outside of Bury but was ideal as it was near to our relations. It is very modern, immaculately looked after. The rooms were very good and would put many larger hotels to shame. The guest house is set in very well maintained gardens.It is located on... More

We had a couple of nights here to enjoy the sights of Suffolk. Clean, modern style in a lovely old house, on an A road, which is not so busy as to be a problem. Plenty of places to eat within a short drive. Good facilities in the room, , terrific breakfast, lovely hosts, Thanks.

Stayed over the bank holiday at pear tree cottage. Was blown away by the hospitality of the lovely hosts Jenny and Peter not forgetting Ted the cutest dog ever. The scenery is beautiful- the place spotless. Breakfast is a treat made to order with fresh produce and plentiful. There will be no better value b & b in the area.... More
