“A wonderful weekend at Thurston Lodge to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a wonderful weekend at Thurston Lodge to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. The welcome from Mark was warm, and his approach to hosting spot on. The accommodation was beautifully presented, clean, and full of little touches that set it apart from other traditional hotels etc…quite easily the best B&B I have ever stayed in.

Thank you Mark for sharing this lovely bit of Suffolk with us, I’m still not sure which was actually harder to do, give you your keys back or return the Morgan. I think it's fair to say they complimented each other!

Thank you for your kind words Andy.
It was great for me to see you both enjoying your stay. I was rather hoping the Morgan was staying on!

“A wonderful experience.”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Staying at this beautiful house was like going on a time warp with the added benefit of having Mark as a host. He couldn't have done more for us and by the time we left after a two night stay he felt like an old friend. We will certainly be back.

“Amazing Accommodation”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A beautiful property with lots of interesting features. We were blown away by the amount
of private space we had to ourselves and Mark the owner was a fantastic host making us
feel so welcome. bsolute value for money, in a great location for Bury St Edmunds and
surrounding villages. The Fox and Hounds do a good meal and less than 10 minutes walk.
Thurston train station is also less than 10 minutes walk with good links to Bury St Edmunds
& Cambridge.. We had a fantastic time when we stayed and would highly recommend it to
family and friends.

“Perfect accommodation, private and peaceful.”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Spent two nights at this beautiful property. Mark is a wonderful host, great breakfasts and really helpful with suggestions for places to go.
The photographs do not do justice to the superb accommodation and private garden. Lucky enough with the weather to enjoy barbecues and cycling adventure to Bury.
Thank you Mark, everything was perfect. Highly recommended.
