“Fantastic setting”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed for a weekend recently in the upstairs room. Everything was clean and tidy, breakfast was great with a good choice. We had friends in the downstairs room, and found the lounge outside their room ideal for relaxing late in the evening without disturbing anyone else.
The owner, Helen, was very discrete and we'd been there for almost 2 days when we realised we shared a landing! Always available, but never intrusive, just how we like it.
To us though, the huge tree filled garden was the best feature, with loads of space and well placed seats to enjoy outdoor relaxation. You need to be in a place like this to understand how noisy birds are!
The house itself is stunning visually, and very sympathetically extended from the original farmhouse. Definitely a place to return to.

Thatched Farm is an outstanding Bed & Breakfast in an idyllic setting. I wanted somewhere to stay with my girlfriend that would give her the best impression of my home county of Suffolk. I was not disappointed! From Helen, the hostess', friendly communications and welcoming manner to the beautiful cottage and surrounding gardens, my girlfriend could not have been more charmed by traditional Suffolk hospitality and the wonderful countryside. Our dog was also very welcome!

Despite the tranquil, rural setting, Thatched Farm is actually only 20 minutes from Ipswich and about 15 minutes from Woodbridge. If you want to explore the Suffolk countryside and coastline, you couldn't make a better choice of somewhere wonderful to stay. Top quality accommodation, top quality breakfast (with a huge variety of choice) and a wonderful hostess. I highly recommend Thatched Farm.

Lets say that this is what I mean as B&B.....the breakfast is really good...sleeping as well..no any noise can interrupt your dreams...house is clean with all facilities..wifi..parking..no all rooms have bahroom..but if you have to share it it is always clean and well furnished..soap..shampoo...shower gel...towels...and anything you need just ask the owner..she is really helpful...late in the evening you may enjoy a visit from some local wild animal and you will find small frogs jumping in the parking during the night...wonderful location for who want to stay away from trafficated road....

We only had a couple of nights, but that was enough for us to realise that it was a great B & B. As we drove into the grounds that first evening we could see that we had made a good choice and soon the accommodation and breakfasts were to confirm that feeling. Helen made us very welcome and the location of Thatched Farm was great for exploring the southern end of Suffolk. We would readily recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I have just enjoyed a stay at Thatched Farm. The house was delightful so beautiful and tastefully decorated. By far the best B & B we have ever stayed in. The gardens were beautiful and it was peaceful and quiet. Helen was a great hostess and was so helpful and friendly. The bedroom was very clean and fresh linen. Our stay was finished off with a good full english breakfast. If and when we have to return to Woodbridge we would always book with Helen. Thank you Helen for your wonderful hospitality. We can thoroughly recommend Helen's B & B.Carole & Steve Massey.

Room Tip: We slept in the old part of the house in one of the lovely bedrooms.

my husband surprised me for our 3rd anniversary with 2 nights away staying in the ground floor accommodation. I was a little nervous as I can be picky but what can I say. the farm is beautiful and I was so surprised driving up to it. Helen welcomed us with smiles and was very nice. our accommodation was lovely because it isn't just a room that you stay in, its great that you have a separate sitting area and bathroom. the food was delicious and the grounds were lovely. one thing im particular about is clean sheets and when we got into bed they smelt divine. there are so many places to visit. we visited aldebrugh. that was a great day out. probably helped with the sun shining. I couldn't have asked for more with my stay. its great to have a service that is so friendly. we shall be returning but this time with our son and staying in a cottage.
thankyou Helen!

Having seen great reviews for this place we weren't disappointed - it's really head and shoulders above most B&Bs we've stayed at. The owner is friendly and helpful, the house and gardens splendid without being stuffy, the accommodation comfortable, and the breakfast very good. It couldn't have been a better start to our birthday weekend. Moreover, it is very reasonably priced, and we were given a tip for the British Larder, which serves some of the most delicious food we've had in ages!
