I'm a regular business traveller and have stayed in and around Bury St Edmunds for three years or so. This was my first stay at Drinkstone Park B&B and I must say I was very impressed. The hospitality was second to none from the moment I parked my car and Michael helped with my luggage. The room I stayed at...

This is the best B & B we have stayed in. Chris and Michael are excellent hosts who have thought of everything to make guests comfortable. One minor detail which delighted me is the fact that there are enough surfaces in the bathroom to put things on! So often an otherwise well-appointed bathroom has no shelf space!! I know this...

Wow. Michael and Christine were wonderful hosts from the moment we arrived. The beautiful B&B was full of lovely touches that really set it apart from anywhere else we have stayed - eggs laid by the hens pottering around outside, the beautiful fire, and the generous offering of port in our room. Even when we were on our way out,...

A lovely, cozy b&b set in beautiful rural Suffolk, managed by a friendly couple. This was my second stay at this location and just as my first experience, it was pleasant and very peaceful. It's set in a large ground steeped in history.

Drinkwater Park near Bury St Edmunds was a truly serendipitous find for us. Perfect for a quiet break from London. Michael and Christine offer more than you could hope for but their genuinely gracious and welcoming nature is something you don't always find and certainly can't pay for We will DEFINITELY visit again

We have stayed many times at Drinkstone and every time is more enjoyable than the last ! We love the Red Room with the views over the gardens and the very free range chickens at the back! Thanks to those chickens their eggs contribute to the delicious breakfasts ... Scrambled eggs and smoked salmon is one of our favourites!! Although...

I need to travel regularly for business and it can be a chore, but I always look forward to my stays at Drinkstone, Michael and Christine make you feel very welcome and at home. The house and rooms are beautiful - as is the lovely garden and you can't beat Christine's breakfasts!

It was like a five star plus bed and breakfast. Everything was lovely . All the extras that was included made the stay wonderful . Nothing was to much trouble for Michael and Christine. And the garden alone would be worth a visit. Location was out in country side so very peaceful and relaxing. Would go again .
