Good Hotel Guide Review
Take an arty retreat hidden in Suffolk woodland. Simon Farr and Ann Lee, an artist and a potter, welcome B&B guests to their colourful Victorian house filled with their own eye-catching artwork. Spacious bedrooms have garden or river views; bird chorus serves as a gentle alarm clock. A family room on the top floor has a smaller connecting room with a single bed. Communal breakfasts include stewed fruit from the garden, home-made jams and marmalade, and eggs freshly laid by the hens that roam in the garden – all of it charmingly served on the hostess’s hand-turned crockery. A ten-minute walk gets you into town; a footpath beyond the front gate leads to the marshes and the river. Ask about the house’s pioneering heritage – it has a fascinating history. ½-acre garden. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV. No background music. Parking. Children welcomed. Resident cats. 4 bedrooms (1 family room). Per room B&B £70–£100. 2-night min. stay preferred. Closed Christmas.
