I stayed at College Farm about 6 years' ago on my first visit to Suffolk. I remember coming out of the house and being surrounded by golden cornfields.
I went back recently with a friend for a weekend break and it was as attractive as before even though the floors made us a little seasick. The farm house is a great base to explore Constable Country, the Suffolk Coast as well as the wool towns and villages.
The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast room and visitors' lounge give a spacious but peaceful feeling.
Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a relaxing 4 day break in the Old Stable. The communications when booking were excellent and set the scene for a superb stay. The breakfasts were amazing and contained good quality local produce. Our hosts did all in their power to cater for the needs of their guests in an unobtrusive way. We will certainly return in the future.

Stayed at College Farm for 3 nights in the Stable Room. My wife and I really could not fault it - great location,great room and breakfast. Rosemary and her husband were very, very courteous and pleasant.

Room Tip: Stable room great for a bit of "away from it all" feel.

We stayed for seven nights at College Farm which is a 600 acre arable farm. It is situated amidst beautiful countryside and is only six miles west of Ipswich. Rosemary Bryce has been doing bed and breakfast for the past 20 years and was an excellent hostess. Rosemary’s breakfasts were super and made a good start to the day. Her homemade preserves were a welcome addition to the menu.
We stayed in the en-suite Stable Room which was spacious, clean and had everything that was needed for an enjoyable stay. It was lovely to look out onto the garden during the evening and to watch the rabbits on the lawn. We also saw many varieties of birds including a woodpecker. The farmhouse dates from the 15th century and has two other guest rooms. There is also a guest lounge and there one can find brochures relating to various places of interest. The nearby pubs did excellent evening meals.

If you want to have a relaxing stay in the Suffolk countryside then College Farm is the place to visit. It is accessible to many places of interest such as Sudbury that has Thomas Gainsborough’s house and nearby Lavenham with its Guildhall. It is also near to Constable Country. If you spend time at College Farm you won’t be disappointed.

My wife and I went to a family wedding at nearby Hintlesham Hall, Suffolk, so we needed a B&B close by, to save on taxis etc.
I discovered College Farm through the net, what a find! College Farm is within walking distance of Hintlesham Hall and in the middle of some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, and Ipswich is only about 3 miles away.
The rooms have been recently and sympathetically redecorated bearing in mind that this is a 15th century Tudor farmhouse, very comfortable beds, en suite in the master bedroom.
The floors are a little uneven in places, which is only to be expected in such an old building. We really felt that we were staying in a historic building which really added something to the two nights we stayed there. Mrs Bryce couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, because we were traveling up from Southampton in the evening she waived the normal 6.30 check in. The breakfast was wonderfully cooked by Mrs Bryce in the traditional home-cooked style, very generous! We were the only guests on those two days so we had the run of the place. There is a front room with a TV and other entertainments, books, magazines etc. We stole a few glances in to the other rooms as they were empty, and they looked just as comfortable and well appointed as ours was, although the bathroom is not en-suite on one of them.
If you are touring in the Ipswich, Suffolk area I can heartily recommend College Farm, Hintlesham, as a perfect base for exploration. See the excellent web site www.collegefarm.net I think.

Room Tip: Book early, enjoy the room we did!
