I have stayed twice at this B&B in the last fortnight. There is a lovely warm welcome on arrival, the rooms are beautiful and they even offer an evening supper menu of fabulous home cooked food so you don't have to go out to eat. At breakfast there is a good choice of cooked food for meat eaters and vegetarians,...

We live quite close by but it was a friends 60th and we couldn't resist treating ourselves. We 'joked' that at the flip of a coin we could have just stayed at the b&b and not gone out. In fact next time we just might do that! Lovely room, great bed, big bathroom, quiet with good views and most excellent...

When we were invited to a winter wedding in Suffolk, we were determined to find a warm, comfortable, friendly B&B as our base for three nights. Bays Farm fitted the bill perfectly with the addition of delicious breakfasts, high quality bedding, spotlessly clean room and an interesting garden to explore even in winter. It offered the ideal location, not only...

A very comfortable stay, with very welcoming hosts. Breakfast and dinner were both excellent. Having use of the rooms downstairs was a big plus. Plan togo back in the summer and see the garden at is best.

Thank you for your review and we do hope you will be able to return to see us in the summer when the garden will be in full flower - hopefully, work is already underway on the flowerbeds and vegetable garden ready for the summer. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

Thank you for reviewing us and it was a pleasure to welcome visiting guests from far off lands especially when it is cold and miserable in the UK and warm where our guests hail from! Our guests stayed in our Blue room which enjoys a super king-size bed and mention is made of our bath room - this has recently...

We stayed for three nights in the Shepherds Hut which was beautiful and cosy. Richard and Stephanie were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast and supper was delicious. Bays Farm is well deserving of the 5 star rating and we would happily stay again.

Thank you both for staying with us and in our Shepherds Hut during December. Our Shepherds Hut, whilst situated in the orchard, offers the seclusion many guests crave for but it is beautifully warm with all the facilities a guest could wish for. We hope you will stay again when next visiting Suffolk.

Warm and welcoming. Immaculately kept. Beautifully furnished. Perfect hosts. Delicious supper and lovely breakfast. The only teeny disappointment was that the bed in the hayloft isn't a king but with comfortable hypo-allergenic pillows, a snuggly duvet and fantastic quality sheets this was a very minor point in an otherwise delightful, restful stay. We would happily return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lavish restoration has turned this charming 17th-century farmhouse into a quality destination. The most recent changes have seen the addition of a separate shower in the Blue Room and an upgrade to a King Size bed in the Cream Room. A moat and 4 acres of recently re-designed gardens which open under the National Garden Scheme surround the property. The interior has a wealth of oak beams and the individually designed bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and each have en-suite facilities. The Hayloft is beautifully appointed and offers a comfortable lounge area along with its own balcony looking over the orchard. Possibly the most luxurious Shepherd Hut in the country is located in the wild flower garden and overlooks the newly landscaped moat. Why not sample the luxury of Bays Farm but with the individuality of a special shepherd hut experience. Bays Farms is very pleased to have been reviewed by our guests as the #1 5* B&B in East Anglia for the last three years (Trip Advisor 2013 - 2016). Why not come and experience a stay at Bays Farm? ... more   less
