This B&B is is a beautiful setting very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Rooms were well equipped even had a coffer machine. As a family we occupied 3 rooms and all were of extreme high standard. The breakfast was one of the best I have had - plenty of choice and superb quality. The hosts... More

My daughter and I spent one night at Bays Farm. Our room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Tea and coffee and biscuits were provided, and there was a fantastic ensuite bathroom. We ate dinner - fresh, light lasagne, salad and a glass of chilled wine - in the beautiful wood-beamed dining room. Stephanie gave us such a warm welcome. This... More

Thank you for lovely comments and we were delighted to welcome you both to Bays Farm. You are right, we love our house and we spend much time working on it so it is always in tip top condition for our guests. In fact we are closing off each of the rooms one by one during the next few weeks... More

- The room: We stayed at the Pink room (it's not really pink, which is good...). The room and the en suite (shower only) are very spacious and comfortable, with great amenities, including a Nespresso coffee maker which is rare in B&B and was much appreciated. As for comfort, my wife is 7+ months pregnant and she slept really well... More

Thank you for writing about your stay with us - we could not have asked for better feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed our Pink room which, as you say, is not very pink. We are just in the throes of refurbishing that room and I am afraid it will be even less Pink than it was before but we... More

We have been staying here for 9 days which has been a wonderful experience, we have been to many 5 star b and b's in the UK, this one is special as the Owners Stephanie and Richard (also not forgetting Tilly!) put their guests first at all times in making their stay a memorable one.

We booked relatively late and the only room available was the smallest. It is small but perfectly formed along with the en suite. It was great for a few nights and the attention to detail inthe room, bathroom and the whole place was amazing. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your review and thank you for your comments on our Cream room. Yes the Cream room is our entry level room and is smaller the others we have available. However, as you quite rightly say, it is perfect for a short stay and in particular for single occupancy. Thank you for recommending us to others - that... More

We just stayed for a night in early January whilst visiting family nearby. Bays Farm is more like a small, luxury country house hotel than a B&B - our room was immaculate with the largest, fluffiest towels I have seen in a long time, and an exquisitely comfy bed with down duvet and pillows. There were about 10 choices of... More

My new husband and I stayed at Bays Farm B&B for our wedding night on 31st December 2014 and it was absolutely wonderful. The owners are so kind and welcoming and, even though we said we would be late arriving they still waited up until 2am to greet us. We stayed in the beautiful and very cosy Hayloft suite. The...

Bays Farm is what I look for in a boutique bed and breakfast, totally individual and sumptuous. The bed and breakfast is located in a semi rural position perfect for getting away from it all, the gardens are well laid and I can only imagine in Summer are beautiful. We were welcomed warmly and shown to our room, the Blue... More

Although a bit far from the center of Stowmarket, this country house is a very nice place to stay. It is very clean and warm at night in the winter. The couples who run the B&B are very helpful. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much for your review. Suffolk is an extremely rural environment and Bays Farm was previously an arable farm before we bought the farmhouse and so we are located in the quiet countryside 4 miles out of Stowmarket. For visitors who would like to walk to their meetings and the main line train station in town we are... More
