All round Very nice B&B. Good breakfast, clean room and house. Outstanding customer service and fantastic surroundings. Only reservation was the creaky floor boards, I felt I was being noisey when leaving my room and going down stairs. Apart from this wounderful B &B..

I have stayed at Fen House regularly over the past few years, having tried most hotels and many other B&Bs locally. It is far superior to many hotels, large modern rooms, super bathrooms and spotlessly clean, yet a fabulous friendly, warm and family atmosphere. The owners are so friendly and accommodating, this accommodation is faultless....and as for the review by Colin, well I have a suggestion for the sausage he didn't like!!

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Fen House. The room was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated with an extremely comfortable bed. The attention to detail made a very good B & B into an exceptional one. The garden is lovely, the hosts are too - nothing is too much trouble and they are very welcoming. Pay no attention to the review from MartinC - apparently this guy was haggling to get money off from before booking and throughout his stay and was complaining about everything. I honestly can't imagine what he could find to complain about: the breakfast, including the sausages, was excellent, and so was everything else. Very highly recommended, and well worth every penny.

The term B&B doesn't do it justice! This is a wonderful place to stay with great rooms, amazing gardens and welcoming hosts, who clearly put a huge effort into making their guests feel at home from home. We have stayed here a number of times and would highly recommend. Love the breakfast, and it's great that they use all local, quality produce. We were even given home made cake on our arrival! :o)

Comfortable bed & well-equipped room, but at breakfast the sausage was just appalling - half-raw and entirely gristle & fat. Yuk!! I spat the first bite out onto my plate in disgust. When I mentioned this (after I had paid my bill), the owner rather arrogantly told me it was my personal taste that was at fault. I work & stay all over the UK, and I'm not overly fussy - but this was probably the worst breakfast sausage I've ever had!

My husband and I only stayed at this excellent B&B for two nights, but wished it could have been longer. If you need to find a B&B in the area of Bury St Edmunds make sure you stay at Fen House, Pakenham.

Room Tip: We had Room 1 - double ensuite on the ground floor.
