We stayed here for one night during the recent lovely weather, mainly as a last trip away before our baby was born. I'd struggled to find any B&Bs in this part of Suffolk that would take one night only bookings and in the end came across Sue's beautiful home on the Sawdays website. Unusually for me I didn't check any reviews and we pitched up with no expectations. We couldn't get over what a lovely place it was. Firstly, the whole area is a delight, with castles, the coast only a few miles away, and plenty of quaint villages to explore. Secondly, the house itself is beautifully situated in its own well maintained grounds and Sue was very welcoming and friendly. We took her recommendation of the Victoria in Earl Soham, which we would highly recommend, and enjoyed a lovely meal there, returning as the sun set to our very pleasant room which overlooked the front of the house and pond. The house is a real home, with beautiful period furnishings and family photos. Sue was wonderful and obviously a natural hostess. Breakfast was enormous, with juices, stewed and fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts and whatever hot 'bits' you'd care to have.
It's also worth mentioning, that several other inns or pubs with rooms seemed to charge £20-£30 more than what we paid for our double room, and I can honestly say we thought the rates were excellent value for money for what you get (gardens to explore, swimming pool, first rate breakfast, excellent quality bed linen etc)
All in all, we couldn't have asked for more and had such a wonderful weekend, happy memories of which we'll treasure for years. Can't recommend highly enough
