Very disappointed with our stay, old fashioned room which looked nothing like the pictures.No bathroom door only a curtain to go across which was weird. Also the guy was very miserable. Breakfast was ok although I think the mushrooms were tinned and no baked beans with full English. Wouldn't go back. Definitely don't recommend to young couples.

It is always a challenge not to detract from 500 years of character, the beautiful beams and sloping ceilings of a true Elizabethan Suffolk Farmhouse. I'm glad breakfast was ok, we do always cook with fresh local ingredients and have B.beans available for those who want them. More

We stayed in the self-catering Carpenters Cottage for 3 days for a family wedding. There were my husband and me, my son and daughter-in-law and 3 grandchildren. All 3 bedrooms were well furnished with en-suite bathrooms, hospitality trays and toiletries. The cottage was very comfortable with ample sofas and chairs in the lounge and a well-equipped kitchen. The setting is... More

We stayed for two nights in the Squires room at £240.00 for the stay including breakfast. Access to the room was by a very narrow, steep staircase. There was virtually no privacy as the door was so warped the gap was about an inch. The four poster dominated the room; the duvet was lumpy, the pillows too soft. There was... More

I was certainly glad of my sat nav to find Colston Hall but it was not difficult to get to. We arrived at about 17:00 and were shown to our room, called the hayloft. The whole place was beautiful and clean and the decor was lovely. The bed was so comfortable that I had one of the best nights sleep... More

We stayed in the Little Maid's Room at Colston Hall. Comfortable bed, tasteful furnishings, separate en suite with bath, view of the fields and lake beyond. Sloping floors and ceilings (very low), twisting staircases, original old latch doors, this place was delightful and distinctive. Very clean. Breakfast was wonderful with a range of fruit, cereals, homemade bread, and superb full... More

Booked this lovely B&B at the very last minute for a getaway to Suffolk. The hosts Liz and John were both friendly and helpful and made our stay relaxed and enjoyable. The bed in the Squires room is so comfortable that one doesn't really want to get up for the delicious locally sourced home cooked full English breakfasts. Having said... More

On arrival we where not sure we had got to the write place, no sign of the entrance at all. The outside and out buildings are very tired, once we had been welcomed and shown to our £150 room things didn't get better! There is a difference between rustic/cosy and unclean /old fashioned. Half empty shampoo bottles, and toilet roll,... More

Stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect. Liz and John are very friendly and the rooms are really nice, Liz was kind enough to show us the other rooms. The house and outer buildings are pretty and well decorated, exactly what you would expect from a country farmhouse. She was also kind enough to suggest a few dining... More

Stayed in one of the self-catering homes on the farm. Place was immaculate when we arrived, and table set ready for us to eat and a bottle of wine provided on the table. Good amenities in the house.
