Once again we had a lovely stay at Orchard House. Susan is a very friendly and welcoming hostess. The three B&B bedrooms rooms plus a large sitting/dining room with a kitchen at one end are in the converted barn in the garden behind the house. There’s parking beside the barn. It’s very peaceful and you don’t get any traffic noise.... More

We stayed one night.....but soooo wish it had been more! Our room in the converted barn was charming, and very comfortable. The adjoining communal room and kitchen was perfect, and the garden was a lovely bonus which enabled us to sit outside in the sunshine to read the papers. The breakfast next morning was fabulous, with homemade products etc., and... More

We stayed for two nights and it was perfect. We had a room in the barn conversion - lovely high ceiling with old beams, enormous comfortable bed, plenty of room, ensuite bathroom with bath and shower and plenty of hot water. Access to a nice kitchen/diner including a fridge we could use if we wanted to, in room TV, hairdryer,... More

We stayed at Orchard House for two nights while at a friend's New Year wedding. From first enquiring about booking, the service from Susan, the owner, was fantastic and so very friendly and welcoming. She assured me that a vegetarian cooked breakfast would be no trouble and even offered to take us back to the wedding venue the following day... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a wedding in the area. The room we had was great, plenty of room to get ready. Bed was very comfy and we were free to come and go as we pleased. Breakfast was fantastic with local produce used, just what we needed after a heavy night. Finally Susan was a brilliant host,... More

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our visit to England. Susan, the owner, was as friendly and welcoming in person as she had been in her emails when we booked. The rooms are in an old character barn to the side of a charming garden behind the main house. The barn has been beautifully converted offering a... More

A group of 3 of us spent the weekend at this gem of a B&B as we were attending a wedding nearby. The building is stunning and well equipped, including kitchen facilities and a small living area. Free-access WIFI throughout, comfortable beds, good-quality showers and spotless throughout. Susan, the Proprietor, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. She cooks... More

Situated between the A14 east/west route and the Norfolk county boundary just 15 mins from Bury St Edmunds, this b&b is in an ideal position. The three bedrooms are housed in a detached annexe, converted from an outbuilding, and well away from the road. Breakfasts are provided efficiently and promptly by the cheerful Sue who makes an excellent hostess. The... More

Thank you for your kind comments. Just a point about the bedrooms in the barn; There are in fact two en-suite rooms and the third room is only used as an extra annexe if required by a larger group of guests. More

We thought this was a wonderful B&B. The room we had was large with a huge, very comfortable bed and the bathroom: with shower in the bath, toilet, has all you need. There is even an extra toilet in the hallway. The lounge and kitchen area is really lovely and homely and also well equipped. We were lucky to have... More
