Our B&B facilities include:
Tea & Coffee making facilities
Bathrobes, towels and toiletries.
An extra single room is also available on the ground level for a family.
Off road parking. Secure lock up for cycles
The Old Custom House B&B is extremely well placed for access to the Suffolk Coast and RSPB Minsmere world renowned bird reserve in Westleton. Blythburgh is on the A12 giving you easy access from London and Essex or Norfolk, and is just 5 miles from Southwold, close to Walberswick and Dunwich (Train station from Liverpool Street via Ipswich). We are also just a half hour drive to Aldeburgh, Snape and Framlingham, so visit us and explore this area of outstanding natural beauty.
The best... The best B&B I have ever stayed in! Clean, comfortable and friendly. Jeff and Wendy are fantastic hosts, offering helpful advice about the local area and recommendations for local pubs and restaurants.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and the bathroom, although shared, was modern and clean. The fresh fruit and water in the rooms is a lovely touch, but arriving back from a busy day to find a delicious home baked cake in our room was fantastic! the breakfast was second to none.
Delightful Bed and Breakfast experience The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and very welcome after a hot day by the coast. All needs were catered for: fresh fruit, mineral water and tea and coffee making facilities which were very welcome. Breakfast was a treat. Jeff and Wendy are very welcoming and informative. I thoroughly recommend the Old Custom House for a stay near this magical coastal area of Suffolk.
Tea and Coffee making facilities in all rooms
Plenty of parking space
