On arrival, we were met by the owners, Maureen and Dave who gave us a very friendly welcome. We were shown to our room (King size room) which was spotless. It overlooked fields and paddocks. The bed was really comfortable. Everything was perfect, including a great breakfast with lots of choice - and freshly cooked using local produce. The only...

Suffolk is a beautiful county and this is certainly a picture postcard area of it. The rural views from the windows were perfect, bed very comfortable, plenty of space and a large bathroom, all very clean and cared for. There is plenty of parking, a country pub in walking distance and many lovely villages close by. What's not to like....

We stayed here for a couple of nights, spotlessly clean, delicious Full English Breakfasts and a lovely location for walking etc. Perfect if you are playing golf at Stoke by Nayland but would prefer not to stay in a large Hotel. We would certainly go back

In spite of our late arrival we were warmly welcomed into this lovely home. Our room was large, light, well appointed and on the ground floor. On this particular trip we stayed in a dozen B&B's and this would have been the best although not all that easy to find. The host had good suggestions for evening meals and provided...

Great location, with super facilities, most welcoming and charming hosts. A perfect base for touring around - surrounded by Constable country - Flatford is only a short drive away. Dave & Maureen's breakfasts are not to be missed! Would recommend and certainly go back. P&S

What a great find. A ten minutes drive away from Stoke near Nayland Golf Course. We chose the studio option. A spacious, extremely clean room, decorated to a very modern standard. A compact bathroom with a strong, electric shower. The studio is equipped with a fridge, a modern electric hob, full household utensils, glasses and cutlery, iron and ironing board,...

Polstead Lodge is not really on the way from or to anywhere, which makes it a delightful, quiet spot. We booked via Booking.com, which doesn't give quite as accurate impression as their own site does. Theirs is clear that it is a B&B, so expectations could differ. We ended up in what they called "The Studio", which looks like a...

We had to catch the tide in the morning at Walton on the Naze. Driving from Bristol to be there on time would have meant a very early start. We found Polstead Lodge ... was like 'home away from home' and less than an hours drive to our friend's boat.
