If you're looking for a 'home away from home' experience, check out these top B&Bs in Bury St Edmunds & Beyond!

There can be nowhere more comforting than a home away from home in the form of a relaxing B&B. Cosy, elegant, spacious and bijou, these B&Bs come in all styles but have one thing in common; they offer a break away from the demands of the everyday and a chance to relax and enjoy just a little indulgence.

Blackboy Pub 

 You can’t get much more traditional that the Blackboy Pub set in the medieval centre of Bury St Edmunds. Its location makes this place a great stop over for walkers and sightseers who need a handy place to stay during their journey. 

The pub is warm and welcoming, with a range of local ales as well as pool and darts for the more competitive members of your group. The rooms are practical and comfortable and the breakfast is hearty setting you up for the rest of the day.

Box Bush B&B and Holiday Cottage

For a true taste of the countryside, head to Box Bush Cottage for an authentic rustic experience on this tranquil area of farmland. Choose to stay in the B&B or the separate holiday cottage, which sleeps a whole family of four.  The breakfast on offer includes eggs from the resident hens and can be enjoyed in the pretty gardens. For a small additional charge guests can experience the delights of a sauna, steam room and, in the summer months a heated pool.

Church Farm Bed and Breakfast

A beautiful flint cottage set in the grounds of a busy working fruit farm, Church Farm bed and breakfast is homely, relaxing and full of luxury finishing touches to make your stay that extra bit special. 

The family-run 200 acre farm grows raspberries, strawberries, apples and pears and is bustling all year round, even selling Christmas trees in the winter months.  Artists will find plenty to inspire them and are welcome to take a seat on one of the many well-placed benches to stop and capture the blossom-laden fruit trees, wildlife and farm life. 

The rooms are a joy to behold, with super king sized beds, tasteful classic pieces of furniture and the softest linen. You’ll even find fragrant bath oils and complimentary cake on arrival. The farmhouse breakfast includes preserves which of course are made from the farm’s own fruit as well as homemade apple juice and other local produce.

Meadow House Bed and Breakfast

Meadow House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect solution for large groups seeking somewhere to stay together, with a broad range of rooms in a magnificent modern house, as well as a separate coach house annex, all set in two acres of wooded grounds for relaxation and complete privacy. 

The generous and delicious English breakfasts are cooked to order and there are also vegetarian and continental options available. Meadow house is located in Burwell, 10 miles from the interesting city of Cambridge, and only four miles from Newmarket- ideal if you want to visit the racecourse. There are also a collection of quaint self-catering cottages available, each located in the local area and with its own character and unique style. Hilary’s Cottage in the village of Swaffham Prior is an adorable Victorian cottage, which sleeps four people. Also in Swaffham Prior, Garden Cottage has a sunny patio space and welcomes dogs.

Old Cannon Brewery B&B

A most unusual place to stay the night, and a must-do for fans of all things ale, the Old Cannon Brewery dates back to before world war one and today is a place to sample a whole range of in-house brewed ales as well as seeing them in the making. 

The rooms are relaxed and comfortable and include a selection of amenities (including a bottle of beer!) as well as free secure off street parking, allowing you the freedom to explore the nearby town of Bury St Edmunds and its many sights.  Breakfast is an absolute treat, with a continental buffet to start, followed by a choice of delicious options including Eggs Benedict, French toast and the Brewer’s breakfast which includes local butcher’s sausages flavoured with the brewery’s own beer.

The Bushel B&B 

The Bushel is a warm and welcoming place to rest your head and enjoy some delicious traditional pub grub. Located in the center of Bury St Edmunds, this 15th Century coaching inn maintains some of the authentic features of the inn that stood on St John’s Street in the 15th Century. Keep your eyes peeled for the original flint wall, which is still on show in the dining area. 

The rooms are stylish and bright, with everything you need for a relaxing stay, and the communal spaces are elegant and modern with leafy hanging plants and unusual art on the walls. Brunch is available until noon, so you can enjoy a luxurious slow start to the day, perhaps reading the paper and choosing from an extensive menu including the classic full English (veggie option also available) as well as more unusual options such as chorizo bake and eggs, smoked salmon and even steak and eggs.

The Fox Inn B&B

The Fox Inn is housed in a lovingly converted 15th century inn, brimming with hospitality and charm and perfectly located for exploring the county of Suffolk. The rooms themselves are all individually decorated, with luxurious details such as large comfortable beds, crisp linen and even under floor heating. 

Elements such as four posters beds, couples’ vanity stands and modern freestanding baths evoke a modern decadence within this historic setting. The late check out as standard means that you can indulge in a lie in and make your way to breakfast in your own time. The menus on offer are extensive and include a range of delicious traditional fayre, so you can relax and stay for lunch and even dinner.
