We found Bays Farm on tripadvisors and chose it because of the excellent reviews it had received. It certainly lived up to our expectations. We stayed in the Hayloft and found the furnishings, fittings and accessories all to be of good quality and of a high standard.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are very pleased we lived up to your expectation and glad you enjoyed the down filled bedding which is our standard. Of course, for guests who prefer hypo-allergenic bedding there is always the option of our new non allergenic toppers, duvets and pillows. As you say the Shepherd and Dog is an easy... More

Loved the area and the b and b. Gardens surround were lovely and w good selection of Spring flowers. Breakfast was great, had a choice of fruits, jams toast etc followed by something warm. I went for the full english and my girlfriend the smokled salmon, both were great. Furnishing throughout was to a high quality. Recommended for sure.

No detail is overlooked and nothing is too much trouble in this beautiful, charming and very friendly B & B in rural Suffolk. Breakfast is the best I have had and the evening meals gorgeous. I have already recommended it to friends and booked more dates for myself.

We stayed in the hay loft, and couldn't fault it in any way. Hosts are friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is cooked to order and delicious. Attention to detail made our stay exactly what we were looking for, pure relaxation! Looking forward to our return in July.

We spent the night here as we had an evening meal booked at the excellent Shepherd and Dog, which is a pleasant 20 minute walk away,. We slept in the Hay Loft which was cosy and comfortable, the bathroom ,bed in fact all the facilities were faultless.
