Homely and friendly

Even though by side of busy road we slept ok, the bed was firm which suited us, we chose the Rose room and it had a shower and loo in it.

The breakfast was typical English cooked type. Maybe a tea cosy would have helped to keep tea warm as it went cold quickly, otherwise the price paid made it good value. The house is very old and the couple are very laid back and relaxed, which made us feel genuinely welcomed. This may not suit some people if they do not like clutter and mixed furniture, but if you can accept this is really an unusual B and B then you will be more then welcomed.

Exceptional service, quirky gem of a B&B and a familial vibe - LOVE!

I have issues booking B&Bs and hotels as most often they are able to provide the bed but not the breakfast - I am coeliac so safe and gluten free food is often hard to find.

So as with all bookings, reticent as to what I would receive. My worries were soon gone. Booked Bridge Street at the last minute, rang ahead the day before to check if GF breakfast was provided and I was greeted with a warm and reassuring proprietor who assured me I would be well catered for. I was not disappointed. A hearty welcome by Lyn and Terry as if visiting old friends or family - as warm as the log burner fire in the sitting area. I was given a tour of the 12th/14th/18th century B&B (it's grown over the years so there is a quirky evolving vibe to the property that reeks of the high middle ages, the Tudors and the Georgians as you move through the house). I stayed in the Grandad Room which was cosy and great for single occupancy. Neat, minimal furniture, full of natural features, tasteful antiques, quirky cornices, with tea/coffee/water/TV facilities in the room and use of the bathroom on the ground floor as no en suite in this room - no issues for me personally. Fresh towels provided as needed, items replenished and room cleaned daily. Breakfast was totally gluten free and plentiful; Lyn and Terry ensured a full range of cereals, breads and other GF breakfast items to cater to whatever I would fancy over the 5 days stay. Lyn is a former chef so took all measure necessary to avoid cross-contamination and also to ensure I had cooked breakfast exactly as I wanted it at the time I needed it. What has made it an exceptional experience for me is not just the attention to detail, the cosy clean and quirky vibe of the B&B, the location to Bury St Edmunds (where I was working - about 11 miles out on the main Sudbury road) and the quality service - Lyn and Terry made me feel so welcome and there was never a time they did not want to talk, ask me about my day, include me in their conversations (and also a family birthday - I was staying alone so they asked me if I wanted to join them for dinner which was s lovely) and also provide a caring, nurturing and familial atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble - an extra blanket, a cup of tea (offered as standard on arrival), help with my bags, use of the wi-fi, whatever I wanted for breakfast. Truly a rare gem of a find in gorgeous Suffolk countryside - quiet, comfortable, suitable, professional and value-added laced in informal, communicative, supportive and caring. A hundred thousand thank yous - I will be back again in the summer and will only be staying here when working locally.
