My partner stays regularly at Drinkstone Park as he works in the area four days a week. I went with him one week and spent three nights there. I was extremely impressed with the room, amenities and the hosts Michael and Christine. The room was very large and spotless with a great bathroom. The gardens were beautiful despite storm Doris...

Stayed here for the third time in four months in January. It is always welcoming and comfortable with an excellent breakfast. The open fire in the shared lounge was just what I needed. It is always worth taking a stroll round the garden too, even in mid-winter.

When I go to this part of the country I always try to stay at the Drinkstone Park B&B. Everything is so good and the home made breakfast is the best I ever had. The rooms are so nice with a great style.

Michael and Christine have a great hospitality that makes you feel like at home. Beautiful house with an incredible garden area to enjoy the stay. The rooms are big, very confortable and you can find a great atmosphere created with a good style on the decoration. The breakfast is best I ever had with they all home made products.

Our second visit to Drinkstone was as good as the first. Comfortable, cosy and excellent breakfasts. Our hosts could not be more helpful and make a visit like staying with friends. Cannot recommend this B&B enough.

Drinkstone Park is much more than a B & B. My wife and I are from Kenya and were on a 3-month holiday in the Summer . The welcome email received after booking Drinkstone made us realize that we were heading to a special place. This turned out to be the case. We arrived early but were still greeted with...

A wonderful place to stay - escaping from the busy motorways into the peaceful countryside. We loved the splendid gardens our extremely comfortable room and the generous hospitality of the owners. Delicious breakfast, welcoming tea on arrival - we hope to stay here again before too long.

We stayed at Drinkstone Park in the summer and found it absolutely delightful. The room was comfortable with all the facilities we required. Michael and Christine are charming hosts, incredibly helpful with local knowledge and there just when you need. Christine's breakfasts and fresh scones are fantastic, we'll be back!

I stayed at Drinkstone the evening before a wedding. Several friends and I had booked rooms and were warmly greeted on arrival. We'd booked for food nearby and, rather than make us wait for a taxi, the owner was even kind enough to give us a lift into town. The rooms were incredible, with everything you could possibly need, and...

You will be most welcome to return, a special 'Book Direct is Always Best' break would give you the opportunity to explore the area with trips to nearby Lavenham and perhaps the beautiful East Coast just an hours drive from us. In the meantime we are pleased your enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your kind review.

“The bathroom has a shower but no bath. There is a sofa for sitting and watching tv, which made the room lend itself way to people staying for more than one night. Our room was downstairs. I imagine that the upstairs room would have a better view of the garden.”
