Boutique Hideaways and Traditional B&Bs, Bury Saint Edmunds

When you book a few nights in a Bury Saint Edmunds bed and breakfast, you'll likely never want to leave. They've long been the accommodation of choice for passing travellers and weekend breakers. It doesn't matter whether you're coming on a romantic break or escaping the stuffy capital for a historic weekend away, there'll always be a B&B to fit the bill. Some are sumptuous rural cottages that look like they've just jumped out of the pages of an interior decorating magazine, others are luxury apartments overlooking some of the town's historic landmarks. If you're on a budget, you could always opt for one of the traditional B&Bs which, charmingly, haven't changed much over the last few decades. Whatever you're looking for, Expedia is one of the best places to start your search for the perfect B&B match. Just put in your dates, location and price, and let Expedia do the hard work for you.

Checking into your bed and breakfast in Bury Saint Edmunds is always a breeze, thanks to the friendly owners, many of whom have been welcoming guests for decades. While every guestroom is different – that's the charm of staying in a B&B – they'll likely be equipped with everything you might find in a hotel room, like storage for your belongings, a kettle for making tea and coffee, and a flat-screen TV on the wall. Some might have ensuite facilities, while others might have shared family bathrooms. What makes the difference between a B&B and a hotel are those personal little touches – perhaps a bowl of fruit in your room when you check in or the time the owners spend with you to help you plan your weekend. After a comfortable night, you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, with things like full English fry-ups or lighter options, like pastries and fruit, accompanied by juices and tea, on the menu. Looking for a different kind of break? How about visiting the increasingly popular destination of Belfast for an adventure in Northern Ireland?

Step Back in Time Near Your B&B, Bury Saint Edmunds

Bury Saint Edmunds punches well above its weight when it comes to attractions and things to do, particularly where its history is concerned. It would be unthinkable on your first time in the town not to visit the famous ruins of the Abbey, which once served as one of the most important medieval monasteries in Europe. As you wander through the medieval streets and past the Georgian squares, you'll almost feel like you've stepped back in time. If you have the time, score some tickets for one of the plays or musicals at the Theatre Royal, one of the most celebrated playhouses in the country. While you're staying at one of the Bury Saint Edmunds bed and breakfasts, be sure to visit the achingly beautiful surrounding countryside, where you can hike along the trails or mountain bike through the woodland.
