Cute and cosy! The Old Post Office is such a self-catering gem located in the village on Bentley in Suffolk. Having been lovingly renovated from its former use as the village post office, this beautifully presented holiday cottage is perfect for couples looking for a bolt hole from which to explore this part of the county or further afield. Inside The Old Post Office there’s an open plan living area offering guests effortless space for entertaining and cooking with the fully-equipped kitchen. A desirable woodburner is incredibly welcoming during the chillier season. With two bathrooms on offer there is no compromise for guests on either bedroom. There is a private rear patio area to enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining or just soaking up the peace and quiet of this lovely location. Shop: 500m (Bentley Village Stores) Pub: 500m (The Case is Altered).

Bentley is a charming little village just a few miles south of Ipswich and just north of Manningtree on the Shotley Peninsula. The area is home to the Suffolk Food Hall which is a nationally recognised farm shop and restaurant selling the best produce which Suffolk has to offer. Only a couple of miles away is Jimmy's Farm made famous by the BBC, which is a great attraction for all the family. In the area there are a network of guided footpaths and cycle paths to explore or why not enjoy the River Orwell by land or boat and savour a well-earned drink at the Butt and Oyster pub in Pin Mill. Alton Water recreational facilities are also within cycling distance.
