Affordable and stylish luxury is the name of the game at the 8 en-suite rooms at The Packhorse Inn: Folly, a charming room overlooking the terraced garden; it has a king-size chrome bed, antique writing desk and a rolltop bath in the bedroom with a separate loo and washbasin. Plantation is a French-inspired room painted in muted tones with white painted antique furniture, king-size bed with a large en-suite bathroom with a bath and a spacious walk-in shower. Primrose enjoys views of the 15th-century Packhorse Bridge and the village green and is our favourite room featuring an upholstered king-size bed with one of the loveliest boutique hotel bathrooms we have come across in Suffolk boasting a stone double ended bath and a spacious walk-in shower area. Last, but by no means least, Warren has high ceilings and an oversized wooden-floored bathroom and is one of the guests favourite choices. Newest additions Kennett, Lark, Ouse and Stour which are named after four of the rivers which flow nearby – the rooms are all en suite and benefit from the luxury of underfloor heating.
