We offer the ambiance of a luxury boutique hotel but with the intimacy of a country home which epitomises the experience of a stay in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Located on the outskirts of a peaceful village just two miles north of the historic market towns of Stowmarket and Needham Market, Bays Farm gives you easy access to Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich, Cambridge and Norwich with London less than 1 ½ hours by train.

Bays Farm is a 17th century beamed Suffolk farmhouse set in 4 acres of formal garden and grassland with a wealth of wildlife. Luxurious bedrooms with crisp cotton sheets, stylish and modern en-suite facilities with handmade toiletries and deluxe towels along with a cooked breakfast to delight the palate will ensure our guests feel completely at home and totally spoiled. On those chilly days during the winter guests can curl up in front of the roaring log fire. During the summer the gardens, which open for the National Garden Scheme, are a delight to wander around and sit in the sunshine.

As with any house of character all of the en-suite rooms at Bays Farm are individual, each with their own qualities. The three double bedrooms in the house along with the adjacent Hayloft suite offer comfortable, contemporary accommodation to add to a relaxing and uncomplicated stay. For a little extra romance why not try our exceptional Shepherds Hut? The pictures tell you everything you need to know!
