This may be a long review so you might want to make a cuppa because everything about Hill House is just as it should be. The location of this fine bed and breakfast is perfect. Surrounded by fields and beautiful gardens, paddocks where horses graze, lovely views of the river Orwell. It was lovely to just sit and watch the feeding swallows dart around us. The rooms at this fine bed and breakfast are perfect. Large rooms, beautifully furnished with such attention to detail that you would struggle to find anywhere. There are a great selection of books in the rooms that provide both guides to make local walks more interesting and informed and a welcome escape when you just want to put your feet up or on a rainy day. They are spotlessly clean and the large well appointed bathrooms cater for every need a traveller might have. The rooms have a large, detailed guide to the area and the attractions around and a selection of leaflets for local attractions. The breakfasts here are perfect. A full English breakfast, cooked any way you'd like it with cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit and finished with as much toast as you can eat accompanied by local honey and jams and marmalades made by Hazel on the premises. All eaten in a perfect dining room filled with antique crockery and family heirlooms, watching the garden birds as they search for their breakfasts. Your host, Hazel, is perfect. Friendly, welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. This bed and breakfast is as comfortable and well furnished as any four star hotel but at a fraction of the cost. One of the other guests did complain to me about the speed of the internet. Personally, I was on a weekend away, staying on a farm to be away from the internet so for me it wasn't a problem. If you'd like to stay here, and believe me, you'd like to stay here, I'd advise to book early. Perfect........that's it :-)

Room tip: Either of the rooms in the Coach House would be perfect

The location overlooking the River Orwell is lovely especially as it is fronted by the beautiful garden at Hill House. Juxtaposed with this is the view of the Felixstowe cranes which are in the distance but do not detract from the peacefulness of the area. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy. The showers are efficient. The breakfasts are very good and Hazel and Richard are very welcoming.

The farmhouse is almost at the end of the Shotley peninsula accessible by a winding narrow track. Great views of the R Orwell and good walks through the fields to the saltings. The annexe bedroom is in a farm building, spacious, warm and quiet, apart from owls and pheasant cries. Good shower.
Breakfast was on crisp white tablecloths, wide choice of cereal, fruit and yoghurt, great fried eggs, crispy bacon and home marmalade, local honey and freshly ground coffee. Our host was charming and so efficient.
A real bonus was coming back with local chestnuts and a bundle of Hill House parsley.

Room tip: The annexe was independent, quiet and faced south-west

We stayed here for 3 nights to explore the local area. Hazel and Richard and their staff were very friendly and helpful, and advised us on local restaurants, walks and wildlife.

The property has 3 b&b rooms, plus separate self catering. We stayed in the red room which was lovely and spacious, with a good view over the estuary. The decor is generally a traditional style, with modern facilities such as a fridge and wifi supplied in the room.

Good breakfast in a sunny dining room, with a selection of fruits and cereals, plus hot dish cooked to order, as well as the usual tea/coffee & toast. There is also a lounge, although we didn't need it as there was a comfy sofa in our room.
