  • "Wonderful house, very, very comfortable."

    We had a water leak dripping from the ceiling and the owner was there very soon to deal with it (Sunday am) and a plumber came the next morning. The gardens are lovely. We chose this house to have a big family party and there was room for everyone. It's a huge house with plenty to do, We would love to go back. As it's an old house there's steps at some of the doors.

  • "Bedingfield house far exceeded our expectations with the added touch of welcome chocolates and drinks."

    Clean and spacious rooms in beautiful gardens with great social spaces, we particularly loved the bar/pool area with a pool table and table tennis too. During our stay we had great weather so enjoyed lots of al fresco dining and put on a birthday afternoon tea so the very well equipped kitchen came in handy. There are a couple of public footpaths directly from the property that we used for dog walks and we also had a few day trips to nearby towns.

  • "Very comfortable beds."

    Warm. Pool amazing. Facilities excellent. A couple of house guests who cook commented knives needed sharpening if that's useful feedback! But we were really happy with everything. Thank you so much. And the weather was fabulous too! On my birthday they organised a chef to cook for us. Maybe you could offer as an idea??

    The pictures don't do it justice. The pool is incredible, great size, deep enough for diving, warm and clean. The rooms were all a decent size. The house is well equipped with everything you need. We enjoyed it more than some holidays abroad and plan on visiting again!

  • "The house was fantastic, much bigger than expected."

    The photos on the website do not do it justice, looking to book again. The swimming pool was great with all the inflatables and furniture around the pool. The games room with bar and pool table were a huge hit. My only suggestion would be some plastic crockery for around the pool.

    The photos on the website make the whole house look huge and when you get there it’s so much bigger than you expect. The pool is so warm and all rooms were clean. We had the best weekend staying at Bedingfield house and would definitely recommend

  • "We thought that it was a very comfortable place to stay."

    The kitchen was well equipped which made life easier. Lots of space and great to have the piano to play. The pool was fantastic with the added extras of inflatables etc. Great to have a pool table, giant jenga and connect 4. Lovely added extras like eggs and home made shortbread as well as milk in the fridge. Felt very homely and welcoming.

  • "The house is stunning and just perfect for larger families and groups."

    The swimming pool is like a bath and is a real treat. This is the second time we have stayed at Bedingfield House and we plan to come again next year! The addition of the pool table was an absolute winner! The only thing I think could be improved would be another sofa in the bar/games room as there is not quite enough seats for everyone to sit comfortably. However, I would highly recommend this house as a wonderful place to make memories.

    The house was remarkably clean, I wish I could take your cleaning team home! The pool was amazing, probably could do with another dehumidifier in the room with the bar, but what an amazing space for the family to hang out, even got Nana in the swimming pool and playing in a pool tournament- the kids were amazed!

    This was our second visit and just as fantastic as the first visit. The facilities are exceptional and the addition of a pool table was excellent. Lovely to see the standard has remained high. The ‘welcome surprises’ were very gratefully received by us all. A very memorable weekend celebrating a 70th and 75th Birthday. Thank You.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday."

    The facilities were fantastic. Equipment also first class. We had wonderful weather so it enhanced are stay. If I could make one suggestion some form of storage in the family bedroom would be helpful. Also perhaps only having the electric cooker in the summer cooking for 14 is quite difficult, particularly hob wise. We loved the house and the situation and would love to return.

  • "Bedingfield House was clean, comfortable and well maintained."

    Lots of space outdoors and the pool was fab. The kitchen had lots of equipment which we found useful. Gardens are gorgeous and the ground floor spaces were very comfortable and it's good to have a choice of TV rooms when your with multi generational families. The good weather meant we could really enjoy the outside for relaxing and dining too. We visited a pub in Eye and had food delivered which was easy to organise. No problems with WiFi. Had a thoroughly restful holiday. Lack of storage in the family bedroom could be improved along with coat hangers in wardrobes.

  • "Great property for a three generation celebration, something for everyone!"

    The "party" room and swimming pool were a huge hit! Lovely comfortable beds and the outside space was amazing! We all felt at home and relaxed. Some areas are a little tired and could do with a bit of TLC but overall we had a great week and would recommend the property.

  • "Pool fantastic and certainly the wow factor for a family get together."

    However took quite a bit of "sweeping" the poolside of puddles. Not alot to be done about unless larger area of discharge easily visible. Again, not alot to be done,but the condensation causing issues in the changing rooms, even when well ventilated, puddles on seats and walls makes clothes and towels very wet. Car charging at £35 seems excessive in relation to the amount of electricity needed for tumble dryer.

  • "This is the best holiday property we have stayed in, my party of 12 all loved it."

    The large swimming pool was fantastic and well used by all of us. The house is spacious and so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. The garden is beautiful, now I understand what was meant by a moated garden, I certainly did not expect it to be surrounded by water, lovely! We had breakfast out on the terrace every morning which was a great start to the day. None of us knew Suffolk at all and had great days out investigating the area, I will always remember the soft colours of the cottages in the villages. My family always share preparing the evening meals, so it is one night for each couple, then relax and enjoy the rest of the week, the kitchen is so well equipped it was easy. In all we had a fantastic week, thank you so much!

    The house had great accommodation and the pool was amazing and the 2 babies had their first swim. The garden was lovely and private and we had an amazing barbecue. Perhaps needs to be identified as a few steps at the property for the older members and could benefit from hand rails in the showers.

  • "The property is beautiful and everything is there that you want."

    We had a wonderful stay. The only thing that I think that would improve it, there was a lot of flies coming into the kitchen so the only suggestion to improve the stay and this is really being picky is either fly screens on the door ( like beads etc) or to have zappers in the kitchen. This was a minor irritation. It was the best property we have ever stayed at.

    High-quality towels and linen were used. Everything was very clean. we really couldn't find anything that hadn't been thought of or provided for us. It is an amazing place for a large family to stay with plenty of space and rooms to chill out in with lots of different areas. The pool was absolutely perfect for our little water babies, too.

Bedingfield House offers a selection of rooms for guests to relax in, beginning with a sitting room perfect for catching up on your favourite TV shows as you warm your feet beside the inglenook fireplace with grand wood-burning stove, and in warmer months, open the French windows to enjoy the gardens and barbecue area as your four-legged friend reclines on the grass.

The second room for guests to enjoy is a drawing room, where sash windows draw in seas of light, a perfect pocket of calm for you to enjoy a book and a cup of tea.

Thirdly, there is a fantastic games room, where a TV and bar give a quirky feel to this space, making it an amazing social area for game nights with the whole family.

From here, you can discover the real hidden gem of this fantastic house, an indoor swimming pool for use all year round!

As mealtimes call, a contemporary kitchen is punctuated by traditional roof beams and joins onto a handy utility and AGA, a space any budding chef will find irresistible, and once you have cooked up a storm, this can be served in a tasteful dining room which can seat all guests.
