We stayed at this B&B as we were attending the ruby wedding celebration of our friends at nearby Capel St Mary, On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome indeed by the host's Penny & Paul, the house and the grounds are beautiful. We were shown to our room which was very spacious indeed with on suite bathroom and lots of nice little touches, like tea & coffee making facilities, bottled water, fruit etc, I must also mention the bed linen as it was especially good with big fluffy pillows and a very cozy quilt so a good nights sleep was had by all. We were then asked if we would like some tea or coffee which was served in the guest's lounge which was very nice, Whilst having our coffee in the lounge we were asked what we would like for breakfast and there was a very good choice indeed, see their website for details the nightly rate even included a daily newspaper of your choice. Breakfast was served in an amazing dining room, and I can honestly say that it was the best cooked English breakfast I have had for a long while it was cooked to perfection.
West Lodge is situated in the small village of East Bergholt which is very pretty indeed with a great local pub, The Red Lion which we sampled on the Saturday night also the location of West Lodge is ideal if you are visiting the nearby tourist sites of Flatford Mill (John Constable country) and Dedham, so I would throughly recommend a stay here
