Bill and Gillian have moved Guinea House Bed and Breakfast round the corner to 16 Bolton St. The accomodation remains very much the same, the welcome is as warm as ever, and for those of you who have stayed before, or sent your friends to stay, the stairs are a lot less precipitous! A more conventional straight Oak staircase replaces the curved oak spiral which some found a challenge! But, if you come to Lavenham, a large part of the experience is the amazing timber framed buildings and architecture - so to keep you on your toes we have plenty of interesting beams.
The house is only a few minutes walk from the Market Place, the Guildhall, and excellent restaurants, such as the award winning Great House, and the Angel Public House.
Bedrooms are attractively and traditionally furnished each with their own bathrooms. They are large enough to sit in and relax, read some of our many books and guides, and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.
The Maypole Room
The Oak Room
The Oak Room has a very large double bed while the Maypole can be made up as a twin bedded room or a double.
Breakfast will set you up for the day. Choose a full english, with locally produced sausages and bacon, or opt for a Suffolk style continental, and there's always plenty of fresh fruit and yoghurt. We use local or home grown produce where ever possible. .
We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We shop locally for local produce and are starting to grow what we can in the garden. We reject excess packaging, and try to source products which are reusable and refillable. The house is furnished with old family furniture and vintage fabrics.We compost and recycle as much as we can and we are gradually changing all our appliances and light bulbs to low energy use options.We also use wicker baskets and cotton bags for carrying shopping.
All bedrooms have private bathrooms
Tea and coffee making facilities in all bedrooms
