Holbecks Bed & Breakfast

Languidly placed on a hill, Holbeck's House with its mellow façade and large bay windows rises over Dedham Vale with effortless elegance – and the promise of a quiet and scenic retreat. The flagstone hallway greets you, along with owner Perry who'll introduce you to the rest of the house, which is stacked with plush interiors, Persian rugs, roll top baths and antique pieces. Bedrooms are spacious and simply furnished with handsome furniture and period finishes (the moorish chocolates are a nice touch). Kick back amidst peaceful views and feel your body slow down a gear as you take a turn around the tranquil gardens, orchard, croquet lawn and pond. Explore further and you're close to Constable country, Lavenham, Long Melford and Kentwell Hall.

This is our 4th stay at this outstanding country house Bed and Breakfast. All the guest rooms are of a high standard. Guests have use of the Drawing Room, may wander in the extensive gardens, play croquet on the lawn, or just relax in the sunny aspect of the grounds. Breakfast as usual was of a high standard. Perry is a very congenial host, with good knowledge of the local area. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the Constable Suite in this beautiful house set in a delightful location with views over the gardens and countryside. High standard of accommodation, large tastefully decorated rooms. Breakfast and host top notch.

Lovely place to stay, romantic but still suitable for kids. Extensive grounds, beautiful surroundings. Friendly hosts. Large rooms and lounge areas. A welcome retreat as very secluded and private, would highly recommend for a break away.

Staying at Holbecks was far closer in experience to being a house guest at a fine English country pile, than simply being a customer at a B&B. Holbecks is a beautiful Georgian house, which wears its history lightly. We were offered a suite of rooms - bathroom, living room, bedroom - which ran the length of one wing of the house. The rooms were airy, spacious and well appointed in a traditional English manner. The hospitality offered by the owners was impeccable - friendly and solicitous but not intrusive. A full English breakfast was served by...

This is a genuinely quality B and B with large spacious rooms, excellent facilities and a welcoming host with considerable knowledge of the local area. Excellent breakfasts, and afternoon tea with the facility for guests (who are made to feel part of the family) to just relax in the grounds around the croquet lawn. The large period drawing room is available for guests to relax in. Highly recommended. Very welcoming for our 2 dogs too.

Beautiful and peaceful accommodation and an excellent host. We spent a lovely weekend with Perry and his family. Heartily recommend Holbeck for those looking for an engaging host and peaceful Suffolk countryside.
