very comfortable stay in lovely spacious room overlooking beautiful countryside surrounded by woodland - the house, located in what use to be one of England's largest vineyards, has been cleverly adapted to provide dedicated guest wing adjacent to the charming owner and her family.

What can I say... a stunning property, beautifully furnished and the views from my room overlooking the autumn leaves on the trees was beautiful. Only to be topped off by walking around the grounds, peaceful and the perfect way to unwind from a busy life. Such wonderful memories and promise to be back.

... who refused to leave she loved it so much. "I want to stay here" she whined down the mile long drive. We had a lovely, large family room with stunning autumnal views over the estate. The rooms were warm, the beds clean and comfortable and the hosts (owner, kids and pets) more than welcoming. We'll be back.

What a find, this place is awesome... We had 4 nights here, the bed was comfy, the bedding, room & bathroom lovely and clean. The setting is beautiful, we took lovely walks around the grounds & were not disturbed by anyone, well only the odd pheasant or two! We really enjoyed our visit & will definitely come again to this...

Highwaymans is set about a mile from the road along a laid track that takes one through a beautiful peace of farmland. I was greeted upon my arrival, paid the £50 (only!) for a room that was big enough for a family, including an adjoining room that had bunk beds. The room overlook a wonderfully kept garden. Downstairs there is...

We stayed at Highwaymans Guest House for one night at we were visiting friends. It was very clean and the grounds that it is set in are beautiful.

I have stayed at many hotels in the past due to business commitments and must say this is one of the better ones. From the quiet surroundings to the beautiful sunset I was met with on arrival, was equally impressed by the owners hospitality. The room was spacious & very clean and had a great night sleep. Would highly recommend...

We found the Highwaymans on the internet when we were going to a celebration at Bury St Edmunds. We had no idea what to expect but were delighted with what we found when we arrived. Set in acres of arable land and woodlands this home offers great comfort, cleanliness and facilities for cooking if you wish to do self-catering. There...
