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!

It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Bungalow, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. Having use of the swimming pool sounds like a fabulous extra, you are right, taking a morning dip sounds like a great start to the day! We will be sure to pass your thanks along to the owners and hope you return for another holiday soon!

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.

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.

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.
