A very small room without en-suite facilities automatically downgrades any establishment as far as I am concerned. This is a pity as the welcome here is warm and the location nice and quiet away from the main road. The breakfast was very good. However I would not stop here again.

I stayed at the cottage for one night at short notice due to work commitments. Lovely place, friendly owners. Vicky made me feel at home and even managed to find me a toothbrush in the morning! Would definitely recommend.

Mature couple staying for a surprise birthday party and this location was perfect as was the venue and service. The closeness to the Eleveden Estate was an added bonus. The Eason for the trip was to attend a surprise birthday party, we could not have chosen a better spot.

I stayed here for one night last week as I had a job interview in nearby Mildenhall the next day. It was absolutely perfect. It was very easy to find and had parking out front. Vicky was wonderful - friendly and helpful - and made me feel at home straight away. While I didn't go outside, the garden looked amazing... More

If you have a reason to visit the countryside around Suffolk, or even if you don't, make it a point to stay at this lovely B&B. The hosts are incredibly gracious and will treat you like one of the family--or even better than one. Vicki and Kelsey are wonderful people, generous and kind, and wonderful founts of knowledge about the... More

This is a beautiful B & B in a gorgeous old thatched cottage. The room was exceptionally clean and warm, with quality bedlinen and bathroom products. The breakfast was AMAZING, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. I would recommend this highly, best B & B I have stayed in in the UK. Excellent value for money.

Our main reason for choosing this B&B was that they accepted dogs (it is getting harder and harder to find decent places that accept "man's best friend" in this nation of so called animal lovers). The bedrooms are extremely pleasant, and the owners very friendly and helpful. As others have noted, the house itself is a striking thatched cottage, and... More

I spent one night at the Lord Mayors Cottage and could not have found anywhere better to stay in the area. Breakfast was excellent.
