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

My friend and I stayed here in november 2014. We had a wonderful weekend, the hotel was beautiful and very nicely decorated, Stephenie is a lovely lady and nothing was too much trouble for her. The breakfasts were lovely, her dried apricots in earl grey tea was sublime! We had the full English breakfast and the smoked salmon and scrambled... 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

I would definitely recommend Bays Farm to anyone wishing to stay in the area. We stayed in the cream room which is decorated perfectly, as well as being nice and warm with the comfiest bed. My favourite parts were waking up to a paddling of ducks quietly quacking on the pond and the positively delicious breakfast. I really hope we... More

Lovely and well-placed setting, friendly and approachable hosts, nothing too much bother. For instance - we were 90 minutes delayed for a meal late in the evening, and our vegetables were still perfectly freshly cooked (OK, we make a thing of vegetables, but it takes care to do them right).

FANTASTIC. What a find. We stayed for one night in The Pink Room for a family celebration nearby. The extra comfort touches were like a boutique hotel. Wonderful sleep and delicious breakfast with home grown produce. We will return in the summer months to enjoy the gardens and produce. Thank you so much.

We stayed in the Blue Room, with the lovely large bed. The room was extremely comfortable, and had a good view of the front garden. Attention to detail is excellent, as is the warm and friendly welcome. The longue is home from home, and Bays Farm offers a quiet get-a-way.

Thank you for your review and it was a pleasure to have you stay with us. We are happy that you found our location to be a quiet get away - Bays Farm used to be a working arable farm and so we are in the middle of the countryside, rurally located but still easily accessible for a short break....

This was our second stay here and it didn't disappoint. The blue room is delightful. Breakfast was delicious and calmly served in the dining room. Poached pears ( from the garden) and also the dried fruit mix were delicious. Would certainly return and also recommend.

Thank you for your kind review and we are delighted you returned for a second visit with us. We try and use as much of our own produce as we can but we are now coming to the end of the fresh fruit from the garden - although we have turned it into the home-made jam! We look forward to... More

Yearning to get out of London into the countryside, and we were delighted with our stay at Bays Farm. The hosts were charming. Our room (Pink) was very spacious, with a nice seating area, bathrobes and an excellent bathroom with high-quality bath products.
