This is a fabulous B & B. We didn't want to leave! The owners are so friendly and we couldn't have been made more welcome. It was Christmas time and the House was decorated beaufully.

Our room was lovely, the food was superb and we had 3 wonderful nights sleep.

We can't recommend this highly enough.

Thank you for your review - we are now turning our heads to Christmas this year (and how we will be decorating the house - each year we try and come up with something a little different). Watch our for 'Bays Farm goings on' under the events tab on our website!

Attention to detail shows through everywhere. The 'blue' room was lovely with comfy bed, spacious bathroom and great views of the lush gardens, Delicious breakfasts and lovely spot for a casual dinner. Our base for visits to Lavenham, Beth Chatto's Gardens and Adleburgh. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Loved the garden view from the Blue Room.

Absolutely fantastic. Clean, comfortable, gorgeous gardens, very friendly hosts, superb breakfast and they can even look after guests for an evening meal too! Everything was perfect for our 2 night stay. Immaculate room with great little extras to make our visit even more special. Highly recommended!

So glad we chose this place to stay at whilst we were down in Suffolk for a car show at nearby Helmingham Hall. Richard and Stephanie made us feel so welcome. The house and gardens were wonderful and the room was immaculate. We had a great nights sleep and a lovely cooked breakfast. We would recommend Bays Farm to anyone

This was our second stay at Bays farm, and certainly won't be our last! Richard and Stephanie are wonderfully friendly and attentive hosts. We were provided with a lovely weekend of good food and a comfy spotlessly clean room to retire to. Our every need was more then catered for, thank you!

We stayed here as part of our weeks holiday on the way down to London to visit relatives and are very glad we did. Wonderful breakfasts, comfortable quiet room, friendly hosts and the run of the gardens and its facilities, we particularly liked the steamer chairs after a busy day sightseeing. An added bonus which we were not expecting was that Stephanie and Richard offered an evening meal and all food was freshly prepared and delicious.

Thank you Steve and Pauline for your great review - glad the weather was as good as it was so you could enjoy the garden so much. The good weather continues on and guests are eating out in the garden - in the pavilion if it's a bit blowy but it gives a great view of the wonderful Suffolk sunset each evening.

Would love to welcome you back - any time you like!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lavish restoration has turned this charming 17th-century farmhouse into a quality destination. The most recent changes have seen the addition of a separate shower in the Blue Room and an upgrade to a King Size bed in the Cream Room. A moat and 4 acres of recently re-designed gardens which open under the National Garden Scheme surround the property. The interior has a wealth of oak beams and the individually designed bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and each have en-suite facilities. The Hayloft is beautifully appointed and offers a comfortable lounge area along with its own balcony looking over the orchard. Possibly the most luxurious Shepherd Hut in the country is located in the wild flower garden and overlooks the newly landscaped moat. Why not sample the luxury of Bays Farm but with the individuality of a special shepherd hut experience. Bays Farms is very pleased to have been reviewed by our guests as the #1 5* B&B in East Anglia for the last three years (Trip Advisor 2013 - 2016). Why not come and experience a stay at Bays Farm? ... more   less
