Terry and Lynette run The Bridge Street Historic Guest House. We decided to turn our property into a Guest House back in 2014, after retiring. Lynette was a cook within the caring and hospitality sector whilst Terry was a packaging printer cardboard designer and founding director of Greenfield Creations.
Besides running the Guest House Lynette makes her own jams, pickles and treats, whilst Terry creates his own homemade wines & decorative wooden items. Guests are always welcome to try these tasty creations when they visit The Bridge Street Historic Guest House.
We turned our property into a guest house because we love meeting and welcoming people from all over the world. South Suffolk is a beautiful, scenic place and we want people to have a great time when they visit. There’s so much to see and do, and we’ll happily provide you with recommendations if you’re looking for great places to eat and visit.
So come stay with us at our Guest House in Suffolk, and see for yourself what a lovely place it is.
Our very old house was built all the way back in 1160, which was then extended into a hall house in the 15th century, 1440 to be exact. It features traditional stone architecture, medieval wall paintings and old timber framing. If you like period and historical homes, you will really enjoy relaxing in the lounge by a roaring fire with a drink, playing board games with family or your fellow guests.
Our guest house is in Suffolk, and is situated on the A134 between a number of towns and villages including Sudbury, Lavenham and Bury St Edmunds. These are in very close proximity, if you would like to explore. There are also regular musical events and festivals in the area which we’ll happily tell you about if you’d like to know.
Sudbury is an ancient market town and the birth place of Thomas Gainsborough. It is just a 10 minute drive from The Bridge Street Historic Guest House. Sudbury has a rich history and is well known as an area of exceptional beauty. There are a number of lovely walks which will be perfect if you would like to explore the countryside.
Bury St Edmunds is north of our B&B and just a 20 minute drive away. Bury St Edmunds is the birthplace of the Magna Carta and has a number of enchanting Georgian squares, medieval streets, Abby gardens and Tudor buildings. There’s an array of award winning restaurants and leading high street shops which offer much to do for those looking interesting days out.
Lavenham is another market town that is both picturesque and historic. There are a number of excellent restaurants, spas and local shops which are well worth a visit.

"We recently stayed as a large group of friends at the Bridge Street Historic Guest House.
Terry, Lynette and Yvette could not be more hospitable and the food was beautiful.
Such a beautiful property with lots of history and the beauty of a five minute drive from historic Lavenham. Bury St Edmunds is a twenty minute drive too."
