A very happy stay in the cream room, surrounded by lovely countryside. A great place to stay if you would like to have a peaceful and quite Holliday, The couple running Bays Farm are very welcoming, and could not do any more for us, as nothing seemed like to much trouble.

House and hosts faultless which enhanced our visit for a family wedding. Loved the gardens and the feel of the place.We stayed in the smallest room in the main house but it never felt anything less than luxurious.

Definitely a 5 star experience in that it's difficult to see how Bays Farm could be improved. A warm welcome, well appointed scrupulously clean suite and a beautiful breakfast in a lovely setting, we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in a house dating from 1640 but with every modern facility.

The Hayloft room was beautifully furnished and spacious. We enjoyed the evening meal at Bays Farm and this was very convenient and tasty - proper home cooking with really good flavours. Richard and Stephanie were excellent hosts; we had to leave early in the morning and they were more than happy to cook us breakfast at an early hour.

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights while cycling around the area and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. Stephanie and Richard were the perfect hosts, the food was lovely, the grounds beautiful and soon to be even better when the lake is filled up. We stayed in the new Shepherd's Hut, which was...

Thank you both for your great review - for readers of this review our lovely guests stayed in our brand new Shepherd's Hut which, unlike others, includes all the facilities (shower room and loo too) within the Hut - so no plodding to a separate building!

We booked a long weekend and wished we had booked longer. Stephanie & Richard are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and the meals whilst simple are delicious and filling.A beautiful outlook which will be even better next Spring when the cleaned out moat has refilled with water I am loathe to give the review it deserves as...

Thank you both for your excellent review - we really appreciate all your comments. We have recently spent much time changing our landscape at Bays Farm with, as you mention, a massive project cleaning out our 350 year-old moat and we are just awaiting those rains to come and fill it up again - betting is for next Spring -...

We stayed one night on a cycling tour with Cycle Breaks. High quality accommodation & excellent food. Fresh milk available & even a coffee maker in the room. Couldn't fault this & could easily have stayed longer.

Thank you for your review from your stay in June. You mention your cycle tour with Cycle Breaks - our excellent partners who put together cycling holidays where they move the luggage from one accommodation provider to the next - they provide a great service and the maps are brilliant! We, at Bays Farm, provide cycle storage facilities for any... More

This B+B definitely lives up to its 5* rating. We stayed in the newly built hay loft which was beautifully appointed and spacious. The private balcony overlooks the peaceful Suffolk countryside.

Bays Farm was our second accommodation on a 10 day garden tour. Bays Farm is a relaxing B&B surrounded by a family garden that provides vegetables for the table as well as beautiful flowers. We stayed in the Hay Loft. It was a quiet retreat with all the amenities. The shower was the best we experienced during our English travel.... More

I stayed in the blue room which was lovely, with views over the beautiful garden. Toiliteries of good quality ( Neals Yard) and fresh flowers in the room. A good supper and breakfast added to what was a perfect stay.
