My second visit to Highwaymans, I came back with my family because I had enjoyed my solo stay so much I had to bring them here so they could experience for themselves this wonderful find. We stayed in the Coach House, self catering apartment with ample room for all 5 of us, and also we were allowed to bring our...

First. The location near Bury and close to the A14 is what I needed for this trip, and the hotel delivers on this front. A very large, beautifully landscaped home and I did not mind at all the self-catering aspect, or the self check-in/out as that was advertised and expected. However, the room and the stay did not meet my...

very comfortable stay in lovely spacious room overlooking beautiful countryside surrounded by woodland - the house, located in what use to be one of England's largest vineyards, has been cleverly adapted to provide dedicated guest wing adjacent to the charming owner and her family.

What can I say... a stunning property, beautifully furnished and the views from my room overlooking the autumn leaves on the trees was beautiful. Only to be topped off by walking around the grounds, peaceful and the perfect way to unwind from a busy life. Such wonderful memories and promise to be back.

... who refused to leave she loved it so much. "I want to stay here" she whined down the mile long drive. We had a lovely, large family room with stunning autumnal views over the estate. The rooms were warm, the beds clean and comfortable and the hosts (owner, kids and pets) more than welcoming. We'll be back.

What a find, this place is awesome... We had 4 nights here, the bed was comfy, the bedding, room & bathroom lovely and clean. The setting is beautiful, we took lovely walks around the grounds & were not disturbed by anyone, well only the odd pheasant or two! We really enjoyed our visit & will definitely come again to this...

Highwaymans is set about a mile from the road along a laid track that takes one through a beautiful peace of farmland. I was greeted upon my arrival, paid the £50 (only!) for a room that was big enough for a family, including an adjoining room that had bunk beds. The room overlook a wonderfully kept garden. Downstairs there is...

We stayed at Highwaymans Guest House for one night at we were visiting friends. It was very clean and the grounds that it is set in are beautiful. The only thing I would say is that we didn't see the owner Juliet at all while we were there, which surprised me, we thought we may see her in the morning...
