About Dr and Mrs J V Sharp

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

Why Dr and Mrs J V Sharp chose Sutterton

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.

What makes this bungalow unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

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)

A friendly, hospitable place with a wonderful garden and extremely comfortable beds and chairs (in the house, that is.)
