Getting to the Red House Farm from the A12 is a bit tricky - you can easily miss the turning from the Ipswich end or Saxmundham end as the sign is not easy to see (overgrown). Also, the B&B is really closer to Stratford St Andrew than Saxmundham, so fine if you want to use as a base to visit the local area but if you want a drink with dinner you need to pre-book a taxi (there and back - Boomerang are good). The Red House Farm is a small holding that has pet horses, ducks, chickens, 3 dogs and a cat - and Jill and Neil are lovely hosts. The pictures on Hotels.com that we booked through are a little dated - you cannot see the house for the trees that have grown up over the front now and the garden pagoda has seen better days. The farm house is quaint and has many classic features - Neil and Jill obviously keep their eyes out for antiques. When you arrive Neil or Jill will bring fresh cold bottled water and milk to your room for a brew after your journey - to go with the daily kitkats on offer. We booked the Deluxe Double Room with Private Bathroom (for that read 'previous family bathroom adjacent to bedroom' - not ensuite) and asked to stay an extra night to get the most from the area. Although WiFi is advertised we weren't told anything about it and found it hard to find Neil or Jill to ask. Although you can hear the dogs you don't really see them - Jill and Neil keep them out of the way, apart from one morning when their whippet escaped from the kitchen and raced through into the dining room to say hello. Neil and Jill go upstairs to bed at the end of the evening and take their dogs with them to the sound of a flurry of furry feet - repeated in reverse every morning. You might feel a little self-conscious trotting the short distance from your bedroom to the adjacent bathroom - bring a robe or something... Breakfast is great and Neil and Jill will pretty much cater for all tastes and allergies if given due notice. But the 07.00-09.00 (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) window for breakfast when you want to have a little lie in during your bank holiday weekend was a little trying. Neil is a font of knowledge of the area and just take his advice if he suggests seeing Orford Castle before Framlingham Castle (for instance). Unfortunately, checking out was a bit of a shock. Having paid online for the first 2 nights (£194) and arranging privately with Jill to stay the 3rd night, we had to pay £100 cash on departure that we weren't expecting. Luckily we had the cash on us but that meant we had to find an ATM whilst out to spend during the day. A bit inconvenient. Also, £100 a night we found was a bit pricey when £80 or so would be more realistic, especially for a room without ensuite, and more in keeping with other B&Bs in the area.

We stayed at this great B&B which was close to a friend's birthday celebrations. We were welcomed by the owner who showed us the room and the private bathroom right next door and agreed the time for breakfast. Having had a comfortable night's sleep, we had breakfast downstairs in a super dining room with what looked like oak furniture which was in keeping with the general atmosphere of the property. It was after all a family Farm House. The breakfast was delicious and must confess I was unable to eat the toast after the fantastic 'full english'.The owner even offered to warm and defrost the car! Would certainly recommend to anyone finding themselves near Snape or Aldeburgh but probably in the twin room which is away from the road.

We were visiting Snape and we were made very comfortable in the lovely bedroom here. The tray of tea and coffee was excellent, and the furniture and furnishings were delightful and very well chosen for this characterful room. Indeed the whole house is very attractive and interesting. The breakfast was delicious in every respect and the whole experience of staying there was very enjoyable.

Everything about the place is superb.there may be an unusual booking time, but that s because Amy works at Minsmere Nature Reserve. The room was first class, everything spotless, and with a good view from the window. Breakfast was the star of the show. Numerous cereal choices fresh bread, crumpets, excellent fresh fruit, and fruit juice. There was also choices for cooked breakfast. We had complete run of the farm and Amy was very helpful. Also a grade 2 listed building
