Reasons to Visit


Be inspired to visit, time after time, by regularly changing exhibitions.  The Highwaymans has a small gift shop which supports the best of Suffolk produce and crafts, including the honey produced by our own bees.


Sample our delicious coffee and sit on the sunny terrace watching the birds hard at work. Enjoy a 20 minute walk through the 300-tree arboretum. Stay at Highwaymans Bed & Breakfast, making a mini break out of your visit, spending a relaxing couple of days in the heart of rural Suffolk.


Enjoy not only everything that Highwaymans has to offer but also the appeal of the local area including: The medieval market town of Bury St Edmunds complete with excellent shopping, an exceptional Cathedral and Abbey ruins, the award-winning music venue The Apex and the National Trust’s Ickworth House and the Georgian Theatre Royal. Newmarket – the foremost centre of British Horseracing; Cambridge, one of England’s oldest and most famous university towns.
