From booking to checking out, nothing was too much trouble. The location was ideal for our purpose and the rooms decent and clean with all mod cons, we had an en suite but some rooms share a communal bathroom. The breakfasts were good too. All in all, home from home is just that.

Third vist to home from home. It's a Gem. Lisa is fantastic at what she does. Oh so clean and the attention to detail is something special. The breakfast is delicious. With ample food. Off street parking also. There's nothing to dislike. Well only if she is fully booked. Lol Go into guarantee that you are in a great place.

We recently stayed here whilst meeting up with family who were staying around the corner at the Applefields campsite - the B&B is ideally located for trips to local campsites, the beach and Leiston town centre, and Lisa was extremely helpful with organising our arrival time and helping us settle in once we arrived. The room itself was absolutely lovely,... More
