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.

Guest comments

'Despite bad weather warnings we booked last minute for a night in mid-January, and found the house warm and full of light, with a wood fire burning. Our room (East) was spacious and clean, the beds really comfortable. Masses of hot water for a bath after a meal out, a hike on the beach (ten minutes away) and a trip to the town's charming independent cinema. We had a very generous breakfast with eggs from Dunan House hens, one of whom popped up onto the window sill as we ate! We used Ann's homemade pottery bowls and enjoyed Simon's illustrations on the walls (both are available to buy, and are very attractive). Good conversation, good comfortable home, good service. A quiet gem just away from, what could be, a hectic seafront. ' - MS - January, 2017
