This was the closest place I could find to the wedding venue I attended. I really lucked out! It was clean and very well presented. The facilities are modern yet the building and surroundings have so much character. Richard and Stephanie are wonderful hosts and the breakfast was delicious. We stayed in the Hayloft, which is a large room but... More

The owners of this property couldn't do enough for us. Every detail in the rooms is thought of - water, lots of fluffy towels, beautiful quality bedding, tea making facilities, a nespresso machine and more. Great water pressure in the bathrooms. The property has lovely gardens and a generous dinner and breakfast. Charming, interesting people who attend you or not,... More

Thank you for reviewing us and for your really great comments - we need you to write our room descriptions! It is important for us to try and think of everything a guest may need, having spent quite sometime in hotels during our lives we hope to cover everything - however we are constantly reviewing and making small changes to...

Stephanie and Richard are really welcoming and hospitable hosts. The house dates back to the 16th century with elegantly furnished dining and sitting room. Our bedroom was delightful with an enormous bed that was extremely comfortable and a large, well-appointed bathroom. The house is surrounded by a substantial and well-stocked garden, designed by a local garden designer, which was a... More

Thank you for your great review - you could not have described us any better! At the moment we are just coming into the time of year when we are able to use our own produce - the asparagus is growing at a rapid rate of knots and so is great for our guests. The garden is looking pretty good... More

An old farm house converted well with a nice room and facilities. The dining room is a lovely old timber framed room, atmospheric. Gardens are beautiful, open at times under the national gardens scheme. But it is the owners who are the stand-outs, charming, very helpful, great attention to detail and making us most welcome. Good setting not far from... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us and such a great review too. As you say we are located in the middle of Suffolk centrally placed to many attractions: Aldeburgh, Southward, Dedham, Cambridge and Lavenham to mention just a few. However, as you say you do need your own transport. Thank you again for your review we appreciate... More

We stayed at Bays Farm from the 12 May 2015 for three nights. What a wonderful experience- Stephanie and Richard made sure our stay was perfect. The room was so tastefully furnished. Home from home. Highly recommend you stay there

We stayed at Bays Farm for three nights at the beginning of May. From our initial arrival on Friday evening to our (belated) departure on Monday morning because we stayed chatting, we could not have been made more welcome, or been more comfortable. Stephanie and Richard are delightful hosts and they have made their period farmhouse a beautiful home from... More

Thank you for your great review and we loved having you to stay and chatting the time away. Gardens are a labour of love, you are quite right, with projects coming out of our ears at the moment - the hazards of visiting Chelsea Flower Show! We do hope you are able to visit us next year and thank you... More

Having recently spent two nights in the Hayloft we can only echo everything everyone else has said about Bays Farm and all that that encompasses. We cannot recommend a stay here too highly for anyone having reason to visit this part of the world

Our fourth visit to Bays Farm did not disappoint - as usual. Stephanie and Richard cannot be praised too highly; nothing was too much trouble. The house is tastefully decorated and furnished; the gardens of course are superb. Breakfast is all that could be wished for; we also enjoyed dining in twice for sandwiches and tea/evening meal. Thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for your review and your comments re our lovely Hayloft. The gardens continue to progress - major changes happening at the moment with the moat being dug out and causing much interest with our guests. Once completed in the next couple of weeks we wait for the rain to fill it up - but I guess that will... More
