Thurston Lodge was a really unique place to stay and Mark the owner was a fantastic host who made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

We stayed with our baby daughter, and she loved all the space to crawl around.

“Fabulous - couldn't have been better.”
Reviewed 9 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Better even than the photo's .Lovely wood burning stove in lounge was alight and the room lovely and warm on our arrival (bedroom had radiators - room also lovely and warm). Mark was the perfect host - relaxed, very helpful and not at all intrusive. The Fox and Hounds do a good meal and less than 5 minutes walk. Bus and train stops to Bury St Edmunds (both hourly) also less than 5 minutes walk. We had a wonderful romantic couple of nights. Thanks.

“Excellent Location and superb property”
Reviewed 27 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We found the property easily, in the dark, Mark's instructions were spot on. The location to Bury St Edmunds was excellent and we were able to make good use of the log burner in the sitting room, a simple text to Mark an hour before returning to the property ensured a lovely warm welcome in the sitting room. Breakfasts were to our liking and nothing was too much trouble for Mark, he accommodated our differing times for breakfast each day. We will return I am sure.

“A fabulous and special place to stay! Well worth it.”

Me and my husband (both in our 30's) stayed in this house as a treat away for the weekend. It was easy to book and easy to find. It was reasonably priced considering what you get for your money.

Mark is an excellent host and greeted us on arrival. He gave us a tour and we confirmed what time we would like breakfast the following morning.

He directed us to the local pub, which we had booked a table at, following Marks recommendation. We were not disappointed.

We returned to a lovely log burning fire and comfy living room, which was exclusively for our use. Our bedroom was massive with a lovely four poster bed and dressing table.

There was also a fridge and facilities for hot drinks. Mark also left bottles of water for us which were greatly appreciated by me as someone that doesn't drink hot drinks. There were also lots of biscuits.

The bathroom was lovely, with a free standing bath and plenty of room.

Breakfast was served in the morning by Mark. .. full English and there were cereals, yoghurts, fruit, toast etc. Just what we needed to set us up for the day.

After breakfast Mark recommended some places to visit in Bury St Edmunds as this is where we were planning on visiting. He was very informative and helpful.

We cant fault our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in that area. Its homely and Mark is a great host. We had his mobile number and he said to contact him on that should we need anything at all.

Thanks for a lovely weekend!
