“Just lovely.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

We had a brief overnight here after our day at Latitude. The room was delightfully pretty, bed comfortable and the bathroom stylishly equipped. Breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit, yoghurt and cooked for me, cereal, fruit and cooked for my husband. All made in the kitchen right next to the dining table. Very friendly hosts. Couldn't have been better. We were sorry we weren't staying longer.

We were visiting Suffolk for our grand daughter's Christening. A real occasion for our large family, we wanted to stay locally the previous night to avoid an early start. Our wonderful weekend started as soon as we arrived at Box Bush with Clare's warm welcome. We unpacked in our well equipped and very comfortable pretty pine furnished bedroom with fully stocked en suite. We accepted Clare's invitation to her spacious farmhouse kitchen and enjoyed her delicious home made courgette and carrot cake with tea. We then enjoyed a tour of the spacious grounds including the hen house, met the new bantams and said hello to the goats. Later we enjoyed an excellent meal at Clare's recommended local restaurant the Queens Head in a neighbouring village. After a great nights sleep in fine linen and comfortable bed, we both enjoyed a very fine breakfast of locally sourced ingredients cooked by Nick. Box Bush is a very fine B & B reflecting Clare and Nick's attention to design and detail, excellent value and full of contemporary rustic charm.

What a little gem….stayed for 3 nights on business, great attention to detail in the room; very white soft fluffy towels, beautiful bed linen and lovely toiletries. The breakfast is excellent top quality produce and a lovely table (linen napkins). The location is stunning well maintained gardens and great views. Clare and Nick are very friendly hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. An added bonus is the gym and steam rooms…..loved it thank you for a perfect stay

I spent one night here whilst working in Bury St Edmunds. It is GREAT. Fantastic value for money. This is high-end B&Bing at mid-range prices. The detail was all - lots of great toiletries in the shower room, lovely napkin-lined baskets containing your thick-cut toast at breakfast. That meal was a treat - a really good fresh fruit salad, muesli, greek yoghurt, milled flaxseed and an egg 'fried' (using no oil) on the aga. And apparently I ate far less than most!
I didn't see the rental cottage, grounds or the indoor pool and gym but I imagine they would make it a fantastic place to stay with kids.
It feels like they've thought about everything a guest could want, and provided it. It is only a 15 minute drive to Bury. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it whole-heartedly.

We have just spent two nights at the B&B whilst attending a local wedding. Loved the cosy rooms and lovely gardens, and especially the warm welcome provided after a six hour drive.Claire and her husband were great, and we loved the huge breakfasts. We would recommend to everyone as there was a variety of accommodation available, and we will be back if ever close to Bury. Anne, Charlie and Isaac

We stayed at the cottage for 4 nights, and loved the cosy, characterful interior - tiled floor, beams etc. The kitchen had all your needs to eat in or indeed BBQ as we did one night.

The gardens are huge and have the added bonus of an indoor pool which our daughter loved, a huge trampoline and great play area, and chickens and pygmy goats!!

Claire is a lovely lady and was really helpful during our stay, and we can recommend the cottage to a small family or 2 couples without hesitation.
