Herringswell is ideally situated between the A11 and the A14, within 20 miles of the dreaming spires of Cambridge and 10 miles of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds. Church Farmhouse is also ideally situated for those wishing to attend both the racing on The Rowley Mile or The July Course, or Tattersalls Bloodstock Sales. The wonderful Norfolk and Suffolk Coasts are not much more than an hour away and visitors can take in many of the historic East Anglian villages on their journey. The Icknield Way passes directly outside the Farmhouse, drawing walkers and cyclists along the Iceni road which once connected The Wash in Norfolk to the Dorset Coast. The village itself is mentioned in The Doomsday Book. A fascinating booklet about it's history is available in St Ethelbert’s Chu...Herringswell is ideally situated between the A11 and the A14, within 20 miles of the dreaming spires of Cambridge and 10 miles of the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds.

We were met by Sarah, the owner of the house, with some coffee and tea and shown to our very lovely bedroom with its own beautiful bathroom. We were up in Suffolk for a wedding so only stayed a night but the next morning we had a big breakfast followed by a morning stroll in Sarah's garden. The breakfast was spot on, the house really interesting and the whole atmosphere so comforting. We've actually booked again to come up properly for a long weekend and can't wait for the breakfasts and this time some longer walks. Couldn't recommend more.

We stayed with Sarah for three nights (two couples) and had a lovely warm reception from her. The house is very old and parts of it date back to 1600. Consequently, level flooring upstairs might be an issue for some, but we were fine with this. The beds were very comfortable with lovely linen and everything was spotless. Sarah cooked us some great breakfasts and made us very welcome. We really enjoyed our stay in Suffolk and Uggeshall is a very convenient place to stay for sightseeing. We have given 4 stars and it would have been 5 if there was an effective shower facility. We had a lovely time Sarah - thank you.

I am pleased you all enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the trouble to write and so favourably. On my website, I do give the date the house was built. And whenever age or infirmity are a concern, the age of this house is always pointed out to potential guests, so that they can make their own decision. In 24 years it has not caused a problem ! I presume by "effective shower facility" you mean a proper shower? If only we could put in wonderful power showers here but sadly the considerable length of the house is not conducive to a good flow of water from the header tank on the upper floor at the other end of the house. We do state that we have bathrooms (i.e. with a bath) and if asked, I explain that we have a "telephone style" shower attachment on the taps.

I have just enjoyed one of the best overnight stays ever! As a professional musician, I travel all over Europe, and regularly in the UK using private special places to stay, so i speak with over 35 years experience. This gem of a find was a delight from the warm welcome from the lovely Sarah who couldn't do enough to make my stay comfortable and relaxing. Tea and cake on arrival, a small jug of fresh milk outside the door for morning tea, and one of the tastiest cooked breakfasts possible, with a vast choice of cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt whilst it was being expertly cooked. A delightful room with fresh flowers from the garden, and a comfy bed with high quality bedding and pillows, meant a good night's sleep. Thank you Sarah for such a special place to stay, and I look forward to the next time soon.......

This is a charming and characterful farmhouse with a charming and characterful hostess, Sarah, full of good humour and hospitality. The rooms were comfortable, with peaceful rural views. The breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice and some of the best sausages eaten in a while. We were unlucky with the weather, but found plenty of interest. Uggeshall is a little way of the main A12 and is conveniently placed for exploring Aldeburgh, Southwold etc. and a number of spectacular mediaeval churches with angel ceilings.

It was super having you three to stay here and I was so thrilled to find you had written so enthusiastically about your stay here. Thank you so much for doing that. We do try to make it work and it is lovely to get that affirmation that we are "getting it right" ! Will we ever forget the boiled egg scenario?! Very much hope we may see you again in Suffolk sometime.

Characterful old house tastefully decorated in neutral colours with lovely fresh flower arrangements. Helpful and relaxed (and nicely unobtrusive) host. Our breakfast included local eggs, and especially nice coffee and sausages. Located a few minutes drive from the main road, so it's easy to find but far enough down the little lane so it feels quiet and tucked away. Next to an unusual thatched church. An old waggy-tailed labrador barks when you arrive but then disappears back to bed! Glad we chose this B&B - would definitely go back.

Katie, Jim and Julian had a 3 night stay during August 2015. Greeted by a very warm welcome from Sarah who is witty, lively and knowledgeable - immediately offered tea in the garden. Lovely comfortable bedrooms that ensured a good night's sleep in truly peaceful surroundings. Breakfasts were a delight catering for all diets and appetites. Sarah could not have been more helpful providing information on places to eat and events taking place in Southwold. Indeed, she booked a table for our first evening meal at a nearby pub. Made us feel truly at home and would certainly recommend to any friends who may intend visiting the area.
