I had to visit Bury St Edmunds to visit a very sick relative and needed a place to stay at very short notice. The reviews here attracted me and were completely accurate. After a 250 mile drive and seeing my poor sick Uncle I was so worn out I couldn't even find the front door and was rescued by Jane... More

My partner and I stayed here about a week ago for one night before a wedding. The property is beautiful and just how I had imagined it to be. The hosts are lovely and even drove us to a nice restaurant for dinner and picked us up when we were ready. They cooked breakfast in the morning which was one... More

This B&B is just about perfect. The owners are lovely and friendly. The rooms are modern, clean and have nice touches, like jars of sweets and biscuits. I was welcomed at 10 pm with cake and fresh milk for my coffee. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was good with lots of choice. I couldn't fault the decor... More

A first class B&B with two most lovely people. Everything is spotless and one feel at home immidiately. everything is so very clean and comfortable that we can write a whole essay about it, but our advice is.....stay here and one will find out the luxury and welcome feeling of the Old Pear Tree. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay. Jane and Garry are excellent hosts, friendly and welcoming and make you feel like you're staying with old friends! Our room was a delight - all old-fashioned beams, nooks and crannies with excellent crisp, quality linen , a well-stocked complimentary tray, lovely toiletries and a view over the garden. Home-made cakes were served on... More

When I read this place was considered the best ever B&, I was a bit sceptical and went there looking for faults. However, there aren't any. This accommodation is indeed close to perfection and actually exceeded my expectations. It is an old country farm house with all sorts of interesting nooks and crannies all decorated like something out of a... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this lovely cottage. Jane welcomed us with tea/coffee and cake before showing us to our room. Breakfast order form also completed at check in to accommodate guests' choices e.g. my wife is vegetarian and required time of breakfast. Room was well furnished with a very comfortable bed and nice toiletries in bathroom. Nice... More
