“Excellent Location and superb property”
Reviewed November 26, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We found the property easily, in the dark, Mark's instructions were spot on. The location to Bury St Edmunds was excellent and we were able to make good use of the log burner in the sitting room, a simple text to Mark an hour before returning to the property ensured a lovely warm welcome in the sitting room. Breakfasts were to our liking and nothing was too much trouble for Mark, he accommodated our differing times for breakfast each day. We will return I am sure.

“A fabulous and special place to stay! Well worth it.”

person found this review helpful

Me and my husband (both in our 30's) stayed in this house as a treat away for the weekend. It was easy to book and easy to find. It was reasonably priced considering what you get for your money.

Mark is an excellent host and greeted us on arrival. He gave us a tour and we confirmed what time we would like breakfast the following morning.

He directed us to the local pub, which we had booked a table at, following Marks recommendation. We were not disappointed.

We returned to a lovely log burning fire and comfy living room, which was exclusively for our use. Our bedroom was massive with a lovely four poster bed and dressing table.

There was also a fridge and facilities for hot drinks. Mark also left bottles of water for us which were greatly appreciated by me as someone that doesn't drink hot drinks. There were also lots of biscuits.

The bathroom was lovely, with a free standing bath and plenty of room.

Breakfast was served in the morning by Mark. .. full English and there were cereals, yoghurts, fruit, toast etc. Just what we needed to set us up for the day.

After breakfast Mark recommended some places to visit in Bury St Edmunds as this is where we were planning on visiting. He was very informative and helpful.

We cant fault our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in that area. Its homely and Mark is a great host. We had his mobile number and he said to contact him on that should we need anything at all.

Thanks for a lovely weekend!

“Fantastic Accommodation & Host!”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We just spent the weekend at Mark's fabulous house. I cannot praise the accommodation and lovely host highly enough. We had a wonderful time relaxing in the beautiful surroundings and slept soundly in the comfy four-poster bed safe in the knowledge that my new car was safely parked in front of the house behind electric gates! We were completely spoilt by Mark who cooked us an excellent full English breakfast as well as supplying fruit, yoghurt, cereal and jams/marmalade and proper coffee and juice. All this in the beautiful living room with wood burning stove. It is worth mentioning that there is also a fridge in the bedroom stocked with milk and water, as well as a kettle, tea coffee and biscuits. The bathroom is furnished with a huge claw-foot bath, separate shower, bidet and double basins and its walls have beautifully carved panelling.

Thurston itself has a railway station only minutes walk from the house which provides easy access to Bury St Edmunds - a very pretty town with dozens of places to eat and lots of non-chain stores. There is also a great pub bear the station.

We had such a relaxing weekend and Mark was such a congenial and helpful host. I would highly recommend Thurston Lodge for a lovely relaxing weekend - or longer. I hope we will be back ourselves before too long.

Thank you Mark!

“Briiliant two night stay, great location”
Reviewed October 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

stayed for a two night short break as a romantic getaway, four poster bed, spotless bathroom, woodburner in the drawing room and a baby grand piano. It was like a mini downton abbey ,this was one of the nicest bed and breakfasts i have stayed in for many years. Mark the owner is a lovely chap and could not do enough for us. He recommended some local places to visit and we borrowed his bikes for a ride that finished at the local pub(fox and hounds) well worth a visit as well.
For the price we paid this is fantastic value for money, we shall be coming back soon
