Visitors are travelling from across the country to stay at a pub guest house in Suffolk. 

The Pear Tree Inn at The Bull Freehouse in Troston, near Bury St Edmunds, opened earlier this summer after a huge £1m investment. 

Sam Darling, owner of The Bull, renovated the pub during the COVID-19 lockdowns in 2021 after the building had sat empty for nearly a decade.

"Times are changing and pubs have to adapt to serve their customers."

Since the guest house opened in July visitors have travelled from as far as Yorkshire to stay in the luxury rooms.
