We booked this B&B a few weeks ago after finding it through an internet search. As we normally do, we checked the reviews, on this site, to find that they were very encouraging.
As has already been said, by others, everything was perfect and our stay was one of the most peaceful and relaxing breaks that we've ever had.
Over many years my wife and I have stayed in some very good hotels, all over the world, but Ixworth House, I'm sure, will become a warm and firm favourite.
A very big thank you to both Sharyn and John, the proprietors, who already feel like good friends.

We had searched for some time to find accomodation that was close to our son's home in Ixworth as we have to travel some two and a half hours from Berkshire to visit his family.

We have stayed at Ixworth House a few times now but its more like staying with friends, Sharyn & John are the most welcoming hosts you could possibly find. Ixworth House is a delightful large Edwardian home that has been tastefully refurbished to a very high standard. The bedrooms, we always have No 2, are extreamly well fitted with superb en-suite bathrooms. The breakfasts are wonderfully cooked by Sharyn and served by John. We have stayed in top hotels around the world but have never felt so welcome as we do at Ixworth House. What more can we say!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent. One has a bath the other two have showers. The house is in a quiet cul de sac and there is no noise at any time

I know the title seems a cliche, but it really is the very best way in which to sum up a stay at ixworth house, I have written lots of honest and fair reviews, but seldom have I had such a pleasure in reviewing somewhere to stay.
We stayed at ixworth house sadly only for 1 night on the 2/3/13, and it really is hard to describe how perfect our stay was. I booked by telephone the day before, and the call was taken by john, who explained about the rooms, and the facilities in each, I chose room 3 which had a roll top bath, with a shower over too. We duly arrived on Saturday to be greeted with the most perfect welcome, one which made you instantly feel like you were visiting old friends again. John showed us to our room, but not before offering us a pot of tea, we went to the room to drop off our bags, and all I can say is, you will not stay in a cleaner, and more perfect room anywhere, including a 5* hotel. The decor is the newly refurbished room was tasteful, and perfect for such a grand Edwardian home, the en suite was stunning, and both the rooms are full of original features.
We then went back down the amazing staircase to be greeted by john with tea in hand, and a choice of biscuits to accompany our cuppa, this was our first stay here, yet we were made to feel like we were coming home. On arrival back later that evening we were greeted again by john, our charming host, and also by Sharyn our other lovely host, john wife. Again the welcome received was amazing, and after a small chat, we retired to rest our heads, the bed was supremely comfortable, and the duvet cried out for you to envelop yourself in its warmness. The next morning after a thoroughly perfect nights sleep, we made our way down to the beautiful breakfast room, there was a gorgeous log fire, and a vast array of fresh fruit, yogurts, fruit juices, cereal, to choose from, john then took our order, a full English, with choice of toast, and on the table were fresh homemade preserves to spoil us further. The breakfast at ixworth house, was perfect, simple as that, and would befit restaurant and would shine proud. When we checked it was like saying farewell to dear friends, of which I hope we are now, and cannot wait to revisit. If you are staying in the bury st edmunds area, you will not better ixworth house, and at £80 for a night with breakfast you will not get better value anywhere around. I hope you take us up on this recommendation, you will never regret it, and will want to revisit whenever your in the area.

A big thank you to both john and Sharyn, for all you did. And john I'm reading your book with interest, and cannot wait for the show.

From new friends, neil and katrina.

Room Tip: Room 3 has an amazing original roll top bath, perfect for unwinding in.

A superb B&B experience. Great hosts, wonderful house - within easy reach of Cambridge and Bury - and attention to detail is excellent. Our room was stylish but relaxed and importantly for us, child friendly, with a child-friendly welcome from our hosts, which is unusual for a B&B. The breakfast was very good. Highly recommended.
