The Bungalow description

Holiday home
The Bungalow is a detached single storey property on the owners’ fishing farm in Suffolk, with shared use of a unheated outdoor swimming pool. There is one double bedroom which can also be offered as a twin, as well as a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. The fitted kitchen has a dining area, and there is a sitting room with storage heaters. Outside, there is off road parking, and guests have use of 12 acres of grounds including a course fishing lake and a unheated outdoor swimming pool. The Bungalow makes a lovely peaceful base throughout the year.

Bentley is a small village in Suffolk, close to the pretty Dedham Vale, ideal for exploring Constable country. Enjoy riverside walks, visit NT Flatford Mill, discover Sutton Hoo or head into Ipswich for the shops, bars and restaurants.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

Was thrilled to see that the kitchen was newer than the photos on Sykes website and that the bathroom was only two weeks old.. The welcome pack was gratefully received and eggs from owner's chickens were delicious as was the rhubarb!! Very comfortable and homely in a peaceful and beautiful location. Plenty of walking without the need to take the car out. Bev & David were so kind and helpful and we enjoyed our daily chats with them. Thank you Bev & David.

There is a lot of stuff that is impossible to include in a description like the friendliness of the property's owners; the amazing welcome and welcome pack (not all property owners think to leave even as little as some milk - these people had left bacon, eggs, milk, butter, bread, fruit, cakes, basket with tea bags/coffee bags); the chats at the end of the day showing an interest in what we had done without being nosey and advice on parking,etc.. ; the offer to run us to the station and pick us up at the end of the day (offer gratefully accepted); repairs to a failed headlight on car. We have never come across hosts like it. They were brilliant.

This spacious and clean cottage is set in wonderful surroundings - David grows delicious vegetables in very well-kept land and showed us around the farm.. The pool behind the bungalow is cold and refreshing in the hot weather. Alton Waters nearby is a most beautiful reservoir with biking, playground for kids and watersports which was unfortunately closed when we came - due to algae. David and Beverly are by far the greatest hosts! (BTW the Bungalow does have WiFi, contrary to the listing on Sykes.)

Very clean and comfortable cottage.. The pool is lovely and just for us! We had drinks by the pool and evening meals. We picked our own tomatoes and cucumber and helped with clearing the potatoes just because we liked it so much. David and Beverly are very kind hosts. The jam and pickles are own homemade. We visited many places and everything is easy to drive. Even went to Cambridge and beautiful Anglesy Abbey.
Mrs Tyson
July 2018
The bungalow and location were perfect.. There was a very comprehensive welcome pack that included 2 buns (yummy), milk, butter, fruit, jam, bacon and eggs and the bed was a super king size and very comfortable. The pool is large and we spent many hours sitting round it. Beverley and David couldn't have been more helpful even though they had the farm to look after. They sell their veg and fruit and the eggs from their chickens and if you fish there is a large lake. We would certainly recommend anyone to holiday at the bungalow. Already missing the 3 adorable dogs and talking to Beverley and David.

We were made very welcome by Beverly and David who were very helpful.. We enjoyed all the fresh fruit and vegetables, grown on their smallholding,and being able to walk around their land.They provided us with a very generous welcome pack.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we had never been to Suffolk before and found it to be a very pretty and interesting area.It is a shame it is so far away from our home,but the journeys were very good.

Wonderful greeting and welcome pack from our hosts Beverley and David Page, also from Fern and Nessie their friendly dogs. This is a well appointed bungalow with everything we needed for a relaxing holiday, including the fresh vegetables, eggs etc to purchase. The pool at the rear was well used giving us a refreshing start and end to our days out. We had the perfect base for touring the local area with Flatford Mill, Dedham and Shotley within easy driving distance. To top it all off we had glorious sunshine all week long. A great big thank you to Bev and David for making us so welcome!

We had a perfect week at the bungalow, we were very lucky with the weather! The owners are absolutely charming, nothing was too much trouble, and a super welcome pack, that was unexpected. The bungalow was immaculate, fresh and clean. The kitchen has been newly refurbished and contains all you need. We found ourselves eating a meal at the table by the pool most nights as all the fresh air and walking tired us out! The pool is large and clean and right next to the bungalow. The bungalow was far more spacious than I had anticipated, and the super King size bed was also super comfortable! Nothing to fault whatsoever. Thank you so much Dave and Bev.

The owners were so friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble from showing us around the cottage to giving us directions around the area. There was a lot of interesting things to do and see from coastal areas to local towns and gardens.

We particularly liked the excellent condition and facilities in The Bungalow, the friendly and helpful owner and the use of the extensive gardens and swimming pool. We loved listening to the nightingales in their trees.
Mrs Old

We arrived during a gale and it was so welcoming to see a roaring wood fire to welcome us. Everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. This was our second visit and it certainly will not be our last, this is a gem of a property and anyone would love to stay there.
Mrs Ballard

The Bungalow was excellent and we could not fault anything. The owners were very nice and extremely helpful. It was in a quiet setting with huge grounds to walk around. We would not hesitate to recommend to others.
Mrs Case

This comfortable and spotless cottage also had good proximity to tourist attractions, so the holiday ticked all our personal boxes.The owners were also very friendly and helpful.
Mr Ankers

This was by far the best accommodation we have stayed in, we could not pick one fault. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The Bungalow was very quiet and peaceful in beautiful surroundings, and was very well equipped. We would most definitely have no problems recommending this property.
July 2015
This was a lovely cottage in Suffolk. The owners are friendly and helpful and made our stay a real pleasure. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable in nice surroundings. An excellent welcome pack too. We used the pool on three hot days -great! There are free-range eggs , veg and honey to buy too. You can walk by the lake and see kingfishers. TV's Jimmy's farm is only a couple of minutes up the road and it is very close to Flatford Mill and DedhamVale, and not far to Aldeburgh -a lovely seaside small town. We really loved Pin Mill by the River Orwell. We also visited the Beth Chatto gardens near Colchester.

Peace and tranquillity is what we required! We certainly received this, together with a reception oozing with consideration and kindness.
Mrs Mckenzie

A welcome pack was totally unexpected and very useful. The beds were extremely comfortable and the place offered utter peace. We were both surprised at how well the bungalow was fitted out; quite the best self catering accommodation we have ever had. The owners couldn't have been more helpful - lovely people. Nothing but praise for the whole set up.
Mr White

Excellent location with plenty of interesting places to visit nearby. The cottage was well presented and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anybody.
Mr Simpson
June 2014
The bungalow was very clean, warm and welcoming. The hosts were really friendly, there if you needed them but never intrusive. Indeed, having such pleasant hosts contributed to the enjoyment of our holiday. The bungalow is in a delightful setting, very quiet and secluded and yet very well located for Essex/Suffolk attractions. We will certainly return.
Mrs Hall

This was our first cottage holiday and we were very pleased with what we found. The welcome, help and friendliness of the owners was wonderful and made the holiday for us. The cottage was spotless and couldn't be faulted.
Mrs Old

We were made to feel so very welcome. It was such a peaceful situation that we left feeling so relaxed and very sorry to have to go. We will most certainly be going back.
Mr Ives

The Bungalow is excellent in every way. A little remote perhaps but this is offset against the accommodation, the grounds to walk around and the use of the pool.
Mrs Coleman
August 2013
Excellent setting, and the accommodation was outstanding.
August 2013
We were made very welcome on arrival and soon settled in to explore the large "garden" an surrounding area. The house is comfortable and quiet and the pool was a bonus...shame it was too cold to go in, but this is England! We took bikes and had several very enjoyable rides taking in places such as Flatford Mill, Shotley and even catching the foot ferry to Harwich. Good pub nearby and a short drive into Ipswich. Altogether a very pleasant stay.
