This was our second visit to Bays Farm. We stayed in the Hay Loft on both occasions. Stephanie & Richard are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble, our room was spotless. The food is all cooked fresh with home made bread.

We stayed in the Shepherd's Hut at Bays Farm and it was fantastic. A really beautiful and peaceful retreat set in the garden facing the moat. The standard of the hut was exceptional and Stephanie and Richard are really warm hosts. We made use of the decking, eating our supper as the sun set and made use of the stove...

I've stayed in many 5* hotels that were not a patch on bays Farm. This is a luxurious place with hosts Stephanie & Richard on hand to provide everything you need. They welcome visitors to their home and provide a wonderful guest lounge and separate dining room, both set off a large hall. Their gardens are beautiful and well worth...

We stayed at the Shepherds Hut for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our mini getaway. The hut was totally adorable, really well thought out interior to fit everything into the small space. It has a small wood burner which was really cosy. There were two ratten chairs, which were a bit hard, but that wasn't a problem, as there were...

Three old army pals decided to spend a couple of days away together and we chose to spend those days at Bays Farm. We couldn't have made a better choice of B&B. Richard and Stephanie were perfect hosts and nothing was too much for them to ensure we had a wonderful stay. It is very difficult to come up with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lavish restoration has turned this charming 17th-century farmhouse into a quality destination. The most recent changes have seen the addition of a separate shower in the Blue Room and an upgrade to a King Size bed in the Cream Room. A moat and 4 acres of recently re-designed gardens which open under the National Garden Scheme surround the property. The interior has a wealth of oak beams and the individually designed bedrooms are luxuriously furnished and each have en-suite facilities. The Hayloft is beautifully appointed and offers a comfortable lounge area along with its own balcony looking over the orchard. Possibly the most luxurious Shepherd Hut in the country is located in the wild flower garden and overlooks the newly landscaped moat. Why not sample the luxury of Bays Farm but with the individuality of a special shepherd hut experience. Bays Farms is very pleased to have been reviewed by our guests as the #1 5* B&B in East Anglia for the last three years (Trip Advisor 2013 - 2016). Why not come and experience a stay at Bays Farm? ... more   less
