Good Hotel Guide Review
Waving wild flowers, part of Stephanie and Richard Challinor’s award-winning gardens, greet visitors to a pretty B&B, surrounded by rolling fields. An appealing country feels pervades their restored 17th-century farmhouse. Simple, refined bedrooms have pleasing views over the landscaped garden; in each, organic toiletries for the oversized shower, a DVD library. A quirky shepherd’s hut in the wild-flower garden, all pale blues and cream, is well equipped, with a traditional wood burner plus all the extras. Served in the former dairy (the oldest part of the house), a hearty breakfast has home-made bread, marmalade and jams; dry-cured Suffolk bacon. Simple suppers (fish pie; pâté and Suffolk chutney) can be arranged.
