From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome and at home. Beautiful home, location, great food, comfortable room - we couldn't have asked for more! Julie and Michael are great hosts and provide a wonderful home-from-home base from which to enjoy this lovely area. Thanks Julie! We hope to be back... More

This is the second time that we have visited the Old Rectory, and it was just as good this time as the last. Lovely gardens, wonderful room, great breakfasts and a real star in Julie. We have already booked our next visit.

We had such a fantastic few nights staying here. We were in the area for a friends wedding in Benacre, and Julie couldn't have made us more welcome. The old Rectory is a beautiful house, the gardens are stunning, and the rooms are immaculate and very spacious, the pictures don't do them justice Breakfast was really yummy and the scone... More

My husband I stayed at the Old Rectory B & B last weekend as a Birthday surprise for my husband. Julie and Michael were amazing hosts and ensured we were happy and comfortable with our room. Everything was explained and I can't praise them enough. We stayed in Room 1 and the pictures do not do the room or the... More

A welcome cream tea on arrival set the tone for a lovely stay - beautiful house and garden, excellent breakfasts and very hospitable hosts! Dunwich Heath and Minsmere for nature lovers and Red House in Aldeburgh (home of Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears) for wonderful insight into the composer's life.
