    “The hosts Beverly and David were welcoming and the accommodation spotless.”

    We enjoyed walking round the smallholding with their dogs and eating the free range eggs from their hens.

About the location


Ipswich 7.5 miles.

Bentley is a Suffolk village on the edge of Dedham Vale, an ideal location from which to explore both the counties of Essex and Suffolk with their many interesting attractions.

The delightful town of Woodbridge has many independent shops, while the archaeological site Sutton Hoo is well worth a visit.
