We really felt as though we had stepped onto the pages of history in this rambling, early Tudor property. Our welcoming hosts had prepared a light supper - as requested - which we enjoyed in the dining room before moving into the lounge where they had thoughtfully lit a fire.

Where to start? This is an amazing B&B, comfortable, quiet, beautiful, historic and really really friendly. We stayed here for a big family birthday and the hospitality was fantastic, going far beyond what you would expect. The rooms are very comfortable and mostly quiet, although the floorboards in our room creaked, but what do you expect from a building that... More

It was my second trip to West Stow Hall with my Dad and it was just as much fun as the first time. Eileen is the landlady and nothing is too much trouble for her. There is a wonderful variety at breakfast and there is lots to do around the area. Eileen owns a very friendly dog called Monty. I... More

My wife and I stayed for seven nights at West Stow Hall during a vacation at the end of May. We were in the studio, but ate breakfast with other guests in the hall. The studio is a delightful place to stay; it has a small kitchen area with a two-burner stove, half-height refrigerator, microwave and electric kettle, plus a... More

We stayed here for a weekend for my husband's 50th birthday and it couldn't have been better. The rooms and house are just beautiful and the beds are very comfortable. More importantly Eileen's welcome is fantastic and you immediately feel relaxed and at home. Monty the dog was a very welcome playmate for the girls and took them for walks... More

My husband and I stayed in the lovely Gardener's cottage in the grounds of West Stow hall for a week with my parents. We were visiting for a family wedding, and my brother stayed in the lovely little studio for two nights too. The cottage was tastefully decorated and provided everything we needed. The bedrooms were light and comfortable (the... More

Staying here is a real delight. We felt privileged to be given a glimpse of the past by being shown the restoration work in progress. The original features are stunning, from early wall paintings to carved timbers and tudor plaster. What a fascinating and interesting place! As if this wasn't enough the welcome is warm. Many little extras are provided;... More

It's not often that a bed and breakfast offers so much history. In addition to learning about when the Hall was built and seeing many of its Tudor features, by chance we also had a lesson in how the plastering was and is still being done. Eileen was warm and welcoming, and breakfast had everything you could wish (including those... More

We had a very lovely experience here. The room was lovely and the bathroom was clean. We wanted for nothing. We enjoyed the very delicious full English breakfast and would highly recommend this B&B for a quiet weekend away.
