“Cosy, comfortable and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

Stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect. Liz and John are very friendly and the rooms are really nice, Liz was kind enough to show us the other rooms. The house and outer buildings are pretty and well decorated, exactly what you would expect from a country farmhouse. She was also kind enough to suggest a few dining options for the evening that were very helpful.

The location was good for our stay, with plenty of nearby towns and villages to explore and Sutton Hoo not too far if you fancy a history lesson :)

The breakfast, using local produce, tasted great! There's a good selection and each table has plenty of bread, cereal, milk and juice.

Thank you both for a comfortable stay!

We booked into the Squires room with a Super Kingsize four poster bed, which was so comfy! The room was perfect and it was the little extra touches that were provided that made it so special.
Liz & John are lovely people and very helpful & friendly. We started each day with a proper full English breakfast which set us up for the day ahead. The location of the B/B was perfect for us and we used it as base for property hunting in Suffolk.
This is a great place for couples and familes as well. They also have a large function room for family get-togthers, or parties.
We will definetly stay there again without any hesitation.

Hope you found the property you were looking for. There are beautiful villages with their traditional Suffolk cottages, and peaceful rural views, not to mention the coast too, all very well served by the A12 and A14 - Liz

Stayed in one of the self-catering homes on the farm. Place was immaculate when we arrived, and table set ready for us to eat and a bottle of wine provided on the table. Good amenities in the house. Colston Hall is a working farm, so sheep around the fields. Overall, very quiet, good views, walks around the farm, ponds for wildlife or fishing. Well placed for sight-seeing around Suffolk - close to Aldborough, Southwold and so on.

We just spent 2 nights at Colston Hall .
Liz met us to check in and we were lucky to have the Squires Room with its Super Kingsize four poster bed which was probably the most comfotable bed ever!
Wooden Beams gave the room a wonderful old feel but it did not feel small or dark because of this. View from window was onto the farm with its fields of sheep along with Lakes and a whole Host of Birdlife and this was a fab way to wake up .
This is only bed and breakfast but Liz and John will advise you on nearby eateries as well as booking you a table/taxi if you wish, also a folder available with all local menu's and notes from guests which help you to choose,
Breakfast room was delightful with the hosts winning Marmalades out to try.
Best suprise was sitting down at your table which had a selection of cereals and a huge bowl of fruitsalad ( kiwi/blueberry/melon/ pineapple etc) as well as Grapefruit and juices and fresh bread with your own toaster . And then came the cooked breakfast with the best sausage we have tried for a long time . Certainly needed to 'walk the grounds' to work that lot off!
And wonderful grounds they are, fields of curious sheep and lovely fishing lakes that gave us Deer/ Hare/ 2 types of Woodpecker/Pheasant and much more
Amenties in room were more than we could of hoped for with non of that having to read a folder of info to get to grips with anything.
On night two we wandered down to the local pub 'The White Horse' where we ate and had our fill of beer/ perfect v& t's before getting dropped back to our digs by the lovely landlady .
We would definately recommend a stay here, either in the farmhouse itself as we did or in one of the lovely self catering cottages available.
Lovely hosts, lovely place, lovely stay.

We have stayed a couple of times, in different rooms on a B & B basis, and are really pleased with the comfort, quality and ambience of Colston Hall. Its location is peaceful and quiet, yet within easy reach of the many attractions of the area. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and the breakfast is very good. There are also a couple of fishing lakes in the grounds and lots of wild bird activity. An ideal place to stay.
