Lovely place and the room had a nice view of the countryside. the rooms have really good finishing touches and we loved the Nespresso coffee machine, it was clean and cosy with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom just had a shower but it was very clean and functional with a few little extra's included. Freshly cooked breakfast in the... More

Lovely place to stay. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Good home cooked food. Clean and comfortable room. Stayed for one night on a business trip. Rooms freshly refurbished when I stayed which was good. Recommended

We spent two very comfortable nights in the pink room, don't be put off by the name, it isn't actually pink! But very tastefully decorated with excellent quality furniture, bedding & curtains a beautiful room, as was the rest of the house! Absolutely everything is thought of & the comfort & happiness of guests very much a priority for Stephanie... More

We visited Bays Farm on business and from the minute we walked in the door we knew it was going to be a great experience. Normally we just book into Premier Inns etc, but decided to try Bays Farm out as it was closer to where we needed to be. The owners could have not went more out their for... More

We stayed in the shepherds Hut and wasn't disappointed. The Hut was warm and comfortable. The wood burner wasn't required, the shower was lovely and the nespresso was a nice touch! From the moment we were greeted we felt welcome. Lovely breakfast with excellent choice. Would recommend.

A lovely B&B. Made to feel very welcome, nice clean, well furnished and warm room. Lots of little touches which set it apart from others. Good choice for breakfast, well prepared and presented. Have been trying different places in the area due to family moving there and this is top of the list. Two very happy customers :)

This is probably the best B and B you will find and I have been staying here regularly whenever I am in the area on business and has been faultless on every occasion. Make no mistake this place knocks spots off other corporate and country hotels I have stayed in and Richard and Stephanie are brilliant hosts and their attention... More

Stayed here recently with my boyfriend, absolutely loved the place. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, seriously did not want to get out of it in the morning. Stephanie and Richard were fantastic hosts and the breakfast was superb, and eaten in the oldest part of the building, dating back to 1640, if my memory... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and thank you also for your lovely comments. As you pointed out Bays Farm has parts dating back to 1640, Victorian times and the present - all hopefully trying to retain the essence of a traditional farmhouse but with modern facilities. Re our Shepherds Hut - glad you liked that... More

We had a wedding in Hadleigh to go to on New Years Eve 2015 and were very lucky to find this place. From the moment that I made the booking to the time we left the property the experience was excellent. Stephanie and Richard were exceptional hosts. The property is in immaculate condition and the room that we stayed in... More
