Guest House Wide

Hello and welcome to The Old Times Guest House situated in lovely Ipswich!  A vision was born to create this guesthouse when the historic landmark property, formerly known as the “Lion’s Head”, captured our hearts.  We have lovingly restored this beautiful building to feature seven guest rooms, a tearoom, dining room and bar.    Read more
