Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have stayed in the Blue room as a twin several times now and it never ceases to please. Stephanie and Richard are charming hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. The beds are so comfortable you don't want to get up but you have a delicious breakfast waiting for you. The gardens are beautiful to have a stroll around and the whole place oozes an air of tranquility, perfect for getting away from the stresses of modern life. We hope to have many more visits in the future. Chris & Peter W

One of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed in, more luxurious than many 4 and 5 star hotels. How many hotels have a cappuccino maker in the rooms?! Great full English breakfast as well. We stayed in the smallest room which was £75 for 2 people inc breakfast. There are other larger rooms that are a little more expensive but our room was more than adequate. The only thing to point out is that the rooms start at £75 not £45 as stated on Trip Advisor. This is still a bargain considering what you get though! Highly recommended.

We decided to take a weekend break and despite the cold weather outside we were met with a very warm welcome. We stayed in the detached Hayloft apartment and it was perfect. The bed was one of the comfiest I have slept in and every detail was thought of. The bathroom was spacious and spotless as was the bedroom/lounge area. Breakfast was very relaxed and we were able to order whatever we wanted in way of a cooked breakfast whilst also enjoying the fresh fruit, cereals and toast. I can't recommend this lovely place enough! Thank you Jo.

Room Tip: The Hayloft was definitely a good choice!

I stayed at Bays Farm, in The Hayloft, for six nights on two working trips to Suffolk. I travel a great deal for work and am frequently disappointed by miserable hotels, etc, but not here. It was a pleasant surprise! This suite is extremely well-designed; a modern environment in a new-build, traditional oak-framed 'barn'. The bathroom is superb and the living space - bedroom and lounge area - most comfortable. A balcony overlooks the new orchard. The setting is wonderful - peaceful, farmland countryside. For the jogger there are miles of quiet lanes. In the main farmhouse the dining room and lounge are lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would suggest that this is as good a B&B as any in Suffolk and would recommend it for the business traveller.

Quietly situated outside a village but accessible to A14, the owners have carefully created a high quality country home, where they look after their guests well.
Enjoyable and relaxing, only niggle was variable shower pressure.
We would return again.

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 four years (Trip Advisor 2013 - 2017). Why not come and experience a stay at Bays Farm? Please note we no longer serve supper on Saturday evenings as all local eateries are open for business. Very occasionally we have to close the kitchen on other evenings. ... more   less
