Having just spent a lot of time in Suffolk for work, it was so nice to find accommodation that offers peace and quite and a warm welcome. As I was up and out very early I didn't have breakfast so Deb would leave a packed lunch in the fridge in my room, I found this to very useful. Ship Stores...

This is a delightful B&B in Clare - the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast very good - couldn't have asked for more. Debbie and Colin were so helpful and would certainly stay here again - tea & coffee making facilities in the room and a small fridge with snacks, wine, water, beer on a mini bar basis...

Stayed in this lovely country cosy B & B for a night. The room was well thought out, had a little fridge with snacks and alcohol and tea making facilities. The bed was comfortable and the whole room was decorated in a country theme. Breakfast was tasty and there was a good selection on offer. Just outside across the road...

We stayed at the Ship Stores for 3 nights with friends joining us for one night. We had booked a superior room in a separate annexe at the back of the main building and it contained a lovely large, comfortable bed. There was a chest of drawers but no wardrobe. There was a hanging rail but this was directly above...

Characterful B&B in pretty village in Suffolk countryside. 3 person room was functional but small, with very small shower room en suite. Good if you just want a bed base, not a room to sprawl in. Excellent breakfast and hosts.

Reputed to be a former Ale House for local Shepherds this listed building is not your average Guest House. We stayed in a courtyard room which was tranquil and comfortable. Large room with king size bed, flat screen tv, plenty of kit space and sensible priced mini bar. The en suite was new but was a bit of a squeeze....

We stayed here in 2 rooms on a visit to nearby relatives. Rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. On street parking outside but perhaps not ideal. Breakfast really good and hosts really chatty and helpful. Short walk to town centre where there are several good pubs with good menus, and a couple of other restaurants and normal shops etc.

Stayed here with my work Colleague due to working nearby. We received a warm friendly welcome from the Hostess who quickly explained everything including the fact that we could get 15% discount off food in the nearby pub! The bedroom was nicely fitted out and they even supply Cadbury hot chocolate ! Breakfast is not to be missed, the sausage...
