We had a great stay at Fen House. The room was extremely well appointed and quaint with all the modern conveniences you'd expect from a bnb. We have family in the area so this was a great find. Recommended of course!

Booked as 3 bed self catering to visit from Oz over Christmas. Excellent welcome, ideal location for us, property was decorated for Christmas and a welcome bottle of mulled wine supplied. Cleanliness and facilities both excellent. Can highly recommend and would definitely book again.

Fen house is the perfect b&b with the best of hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and will definitely be visiting again. The place is so much bigger than it looks from the outside and so tastefully decorated, modern but cosy! The bedroom was very spacious and in its own self contained side of the house with a luxury...

'Fen House' B&B is located in a sleepy rural village just outside Bury St Edmunds. It is set amid beautiful gardens with abundant bird life & the house is quiet, spacious & spotlessly clean. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Lyn Patterson & her husband, who provided fantastic local knowledge as well as superb breakfasts! Nothing was too much...

We had a wonderful week staying in the self-catering part of Fen House. We had 3 kids with us and for a few days 4 adults and it still felt spacious. The self-catering unit is effectively a house attached to the main B & B. It really is 5 star, tastefully decorated and really well equipped with everything you could...

Set in beautiful gardens, this B&B is run by a lovely friendly couple. Our room was spacious and very clean with ample storage, ensuite had a large shower. Breakfast was full English. Fresh fruit and cereals also provided. Would definitely recommend to others.

Glynn and Lynn are the best hosts. They have a high quality B&B and attend to every detail. Their genuine love of people is displayed from the first hello to the goodbye at the end of your stay. A great experience, one that I look forward to having again soon.

My daughter and I have recently spent one night in this accommodation whilst visiting Bury St Edmunds. Couldn't have been more delighted. There was a nice friendly welcome awaiting us. We were shown around the well decorated and spotlessly clean property before being taken to our room. This was well equipped, a large double bed, en-suite shower, tv, hairdryer and...
