Byes Barn has one B&B room in the owner's home in the centre of pretty Lavenham. The hostess is welcoming and friendly, and breakfast was good, and no one minded that we came in (quietly) at 2am. The house is clean, tidy, and freshly decorated, but the room is not ideal. The double bed is very small, and the shower... More

Dont listen to the comments below containing negative points about seemingly immaterial matters when compared with the outstanding beauty and superb hospitality this place has to offer. If you want a clean, comfortable and private getaway with friendly and considerate hosts, look no further. If you want to go for walks after your superb cooked breakfast there is a picturesque...

We recently stayed in Byes Barn for 3 nights. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay, with beautiful views over the fields and brilliant service from Carolyn. Can not recommend this highly enough. Thanks for a memorable weekend and letting us share your gorgeous home!

Lovely comfortable accomodation but the lack of door to the ensuite spoiled the romantic weekend break. I have heard of taking everything including the kitchen sink but never the toilet door! We were of the view to leave the next day but as our hosts were so pleasant felt that we needed to remain for the days we had booked.

We've just spent two nights at Byes Barn and enjoyed it greatly. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating with our requests, and we were able to come and go as we pleased. The room was nicely furnished and well equipped with a choice of teas, fresh milk and biscuits. The bed was really comfy. As other reviewers have pointed out,... More

The house is beautiful but no one was there on arrival. And when we got to our room, the ensuite shower and toilet did not have a door or curtain or anything separating it from the rest of the room. I guess it's the sort of thing you take for granted!!! Anyway, not great for a romantic week end... I... More

We had a lovely one night stay on our first day in Suffolk. Carolyn is very hospiable, with a great welcome, and breakfast the following morning. The room was very comfortable with a feeling of being right in the middle of Lavenham, being walking distance to all the restuarants in the village. Would stay again.

I stayed here recently with a friend (same sex) and even though we knew it was a double bed it was spacious enough for both. Whilst the room was not ensuite the private bathroom is merely a few footsteps away and was spotless and plenty of hot water. Caz is as welcoming a host as ever experienced (hardened travellers) who... More

On our arrival the local plumber, nice bloke was attempting to unblock the toilet, which we later found had overflowed and had leaked through the wall and into the bedroom carpets. Yuk! The room we were allocated turned out to be the owners personal bedroom. A very nice lady, but we my wife and I felt very uncomfortable sleeping in... More

In response to your comments on your stay at Byes Barn 12 months ago, September 2009. The accommodation we offer to guests is one double room, however to allow your family to stay together we made an exception on this occasion. We are sorry to learn that this arrangement failed to meet your expectations.  Parking can be difficult although we... More

Byes barn is very quaint. Carolyn is a charming host. It is walking distance to the centre of a picture post card village. Very comfortable, but the lack of a true en suite bathroom could lead to privacy issues.
