Quiet location but close to centre of Sutterton village, between Boston and Spalding in south Lincolnshire. Large secluded garden. Wide range of amenities in village, including Anglican and Methodist churches. Good base for visits to market towns, stately homes, garden centres, RSPB sites, sea-side resorts such as Skegness and Hunstanton, and even 'Pick your Own' soft fruit when in season. Quiet country roads accessible for walks and cycle rides. Oil-fired central heating. Telephone (incoming calls only). Internet access.
We live near Oxford, but have welcomed visitors to our holiday property in Sutterton for many years.
Dr and Mrs J V Sharp purchased this bungalow in 1980
I was brought up in the village, and many of our visitors tell us how much they also enjoy the wide open skies and landscapes of the flat Lincolnshire fenland farms. It's an ideal area for walking, cycling, bird watching, stately home visits or for garden enthusiasts.
It's in a peaceful and relaxing location, but a good base for expeditions exploring the local area.
The large and secluded garden surrounding the property is always appreciated by our visitors.
I enjoy cooking, and the bungalow is well equipped with crockery and kitchen equipment, but there's also a wide choice of places to eat out either in the village or in the surrounding area if you don't feel like cooking!
This is our third visit here to this lovely clean bungalow with every comfort one could possibly want, and we do hope to come here again. (May 2012);
Great cottage, lovely to relax in. Plenty of walks and able to get out and about. (Oct. 2012).
Perfect location. Stunning gardens and wonderful homely bungalow (July 2013)
Perfect place for a quiet retreat and a good base for exploring the fascinating landscapes of the Fens and Wolds of Lincolnshire (Oct. 2013)
This was our third stay in 12 months. We love this cosy and comfortable bungalow set in a beautiful garden. We use it as a base for seeing family who are living locally and also for touring the area. The bungalow is really well equipped; we hosted a family meal on the Saturday, nine of us sat down to dinner and there was plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses for everyone.
The village is very friendly, I've had my hair done at Susannas on the last two visits and as well as a great service I know all the local news! Very pleased to hear that the pub (which closed earlier this year) has been bought by a local person and will reopen next year as a pub and restaurant. Hopefully we'll be back to try it!
The garden was very overgrown, trees and hedges are in dire need of attention, what was a nice orchard is now a rubbish tip.
The entrance door mat has not been moved for years the mat and pathway are covered in moss. The patio area also has moss, the patio furniture was very dirty and chair broken.
On entering the property there was a strong small of Mustiness and damp even-though the central heating was operating to warm the property ( I would suggest an Dehumidifier is essential to reduce dampness especially in the main bedroom)
The bowl in the kitchen was in a disgusting state being very stained, the small chopping board (plastic material) was scored with knife cuts a nice breeding ground for bacteria. The kitchen sink needed a good clean. The crockery was however clean. A welcome pack of biscuits with milk and sugar was provided.
The tooth mug (stainless steel) in the Bathroom had fungus growing in the bottom. The hand basin in the bathroom appears to be partially blocked as the water took forever to drain away, this needs urgent attention. The bathroom was otherwise clean & tidy.
The wardrobes in each bedroom smelt musty, coat-hangers of every description were strewn around the bottom of each wardrobe.
We were disappointed to find the property in such a poor condition and vacated the property 3 days early.
Our second stay here, we love the peace and quiet after a hectic day out. Well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and nice attention to detail. Our dog loves the garden and i love the jigsaws that are available !
Lovely cosy bungalow, situated in a nice quiet village. Has everything you could need for your stay. Clean & tidy. Welcome pack & small vase of flowers on arrival was a nice touch. We had a great meal at the Thatched Cottage & was well looked after by the staff. We would recommend the property to family or friends.
we had a lovely week at the cottage and our elderly dogs were really happy with the garden and orchard we rearranged bins and a garden chair to make it more dog proof the the bungalow was warm cosy and charming and big enough for us to entertain my cousin and his family when they visited a good place in a great area plenty to see and do a special fish and chip shop and super resturant/pub in walking distance unless you are geriatric like us
