Drinkstone Park Bed and Breakfast & Gardens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Go and experience yourself - it's really worth it. Great hosts, great breakfast menu, great surroundings. We would certainly go back and stay at Drinkstone Park Bed & Breakfast when again in the area. It is very convenient positioned to do excursions to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge or the sea. We loved our stay.

Relaxation is the key I believe, we do find lots of our guests find it easy to relax here particularly in the gardens.

We are at the moment creating a new area at the top of the gardens which will be a garden of peace and tranquillity. Watch our Facebook page for updates.

Many thanks for your kind review and we certainly hope you will return.

We booked Drinkstone Park for a couple of nights while on a brief visit to see friends and relax for a bit. Very warm welcome with tea and scones in the residents lounge. The room was well furnished and the bathroom excellent with a great shower. Breakfast has a very extensive menu, you would need to stay several days to sample all of the options. The garden is wonderful, not sure how you get the time to maintain it, and wish the weather had been better to enjoy it. All in all a great 2 nights and very warm welcome from Michael and Christine. I am sure we will be back when we come to Bury again.

A colleague and I stayed at the Drinkstone on a business trip. Even though we got delayed and were late arriving we received a warm welcome. Our rooms were lovely, spacious and well appointed. There is also a large guest lounge which would be a nice place to sit for those having more time. Our breakfast was excellent. Good choice and local ingredients including fruit from the fabulous garden. Being a gardener I even got up early to take a stroll round the garden and it was well worth the effort. Altogether an excellent choice.

A stroll round the garden sums up what Drinkstone is all about I feel. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and found the time in a busy business life to take that little time to yourself in the gardens.
Many thanks for taking the time to review us.

We stopped off at Drinkstone in August on our way to relatives in Norfolk. We were given a lovely welcome and the accommodation was excellent. The gardens were looking beautiful and we wished we had more time to relax there. The breakfast was superb and we spent a relaxing hour with our fellow guests before we had to leave.

We will definitely be back but will make sure that we spend more than one night next time.

All the way from Canada and Drinkstone is found to peaceful! That is so good to hear and makes the work we do on making the gardens a place for others to come and enjoy worthwhile.

God bless you and we thank you.

I have stayed there with my husband and parents three times. It is very relaxing, Christine and Michael are perfect hosts, the rooms are super - very comfortable and homely - and the breakfasts wonderful. Fresh fruit and eggs from the local farms, wide range of good quality cereals or porridge and a fine cooked breakfast. There are several small villages with good country pubs nearby for eating out.

Room Tip: We always take the downstairs rooms which are easily accessible and have fine views of fields or the...
