Yes, I've stayed here a few times, whilst working nearby. Luckily, it's a good place to stay because there's little else about without travelling towards east to Bury St Edmonds or west to Newmarket. Juliet & Adam provide a pleasant welcome & are two of life's nice people - clearly committed to proving just what they think visitors will appreciate....

I was recently at an event hosted in the Gallery Highwaymans and was throughly impressed. The sense of arrival somewhere very special, is apparent as you drive up the road, and ease of parking make it stress free. I have been here for exhibitions and events before, but this was beautifully catered, with an excellent sit down meal. It would...

Our trip couldn't have been any better. Just the remote getaway we needed. The owners were there to greet us with their 3 lovely golden retrievers. The room was massive, clean and very cosy. The whole place was amazing and swamped in history. We were made to feel very welcome and catered for perfectly!

Highwayman's owners recently kindly sponsored a night in their lovely b&b as a prize for the Risby Primary School fund raising ball. We were fortunate to win the draw and elected to use the prize close to my wife's birthday. On hearing about the occasion Juliet suggested we could invite a few friends for a small celebration as we live...

It's funny. Sometimes things are just "right". I stayed at Highwaymans for one night on business. I just wanted a good value bed for the night and a breakfast. Some hotels can be a bit impersonal so on occasions like this I go for a B&B. My criteria for a great B&B are simple: comfy bed, decent shower, good breakfast,...

Having got lost trying to find it, I was pleased to drive towards it in the dusk down towards an isolated cluster of buildings lost in time. Leaving the car it was the most perfect serene setting with the odd country noises breaking the silence. The room was large and homely and bathroom simple and classic. The door was a...
