Characterful period cottage centre of Orford - parking, garden, pet friendly

Located in: Orford »
This historic Grade-II listed period cottage is ideally situated in the heart of the village of Orford, in the Suffolk countryside. It is opposite the Parish Church and between quay on the river Ore and the pretty market square.

We prefer change over-day on Fridays but are more flexible out of school holidays. Do ask about long weekends and mid week breaks.

If you would like to bring one well behaved dog we are happy for you to do so as long as house rules are adhered to.

The cottage is full of period character mixed with a good dose of contemporary style. It was originally built as part of the Sudbourne Estate in 1875. Attention to detail is everywhere, from the Victorian Gothic styling and high ceilings to the original brick floors and bespoke carpentry.

On the ground floor is a living room with an open fire, a dining room with a wood-burning stove, a kitchen/diner, utility room, cloakroom and a ground floor single bedroom. The first floor has two further bedrooms (1 king, 1 twin), an en-suite shower room and a bathroom. Outside there is a long garden with a glimpse of Orford's famous castle and off-road parking for two cars. The village's river, castle and well-known eateries are within a short, pleasant stroll!

Ground floor Living room:
The front door leads into a large atmospheric living room. There' an open fire with a bespoke fire surround carved by the sculptor Philip Chatfield who specialises in Medieval stone masonary techniques using only hand tools. There room has original floor boards and rugs. There is one three-seater sofa and two armchairs, a TV with Freeview channels, and a DVD player. Free Wifi is available. There are books, games and DVDs in the cupboards.

The light and airy kitchen is in a conservatory with glazed doors leading out to a patio with a table and chairs. The room has a breakfast table and bespoke handmade wooden kitchen units. Appliances include an electric hob and oven, a dishwasher, a fridge, and a microwave (there are further appliances in the utility room). The floor has traditional quarry floor tiles.

With a w.c. and a hand basin.

First floor:
Stairs lead to a first floor landing and doors to two further bedrooms and the bathroom. Please note: the stairs are in keeping with the period of the cottage and therefore quite steep.

On the lawn is an 8-seater round wooden picnic table. There are mature shrubs and off-road parking space for two medium sized cars reached via a narrow opening to the road. You can just about see Orford's famous castle at the bottom of garden.

The river Ore, Orford castle and a variety places to eat as well as the two village pubs are within a few minutes walk. High quality provisions can be bought in the village including bread from Pump Street Bakery, meat from the butcher in Bakers Bakers Lane, a range of smoked fish etc from Pinny's in Quay Street and fresh fish fro the shed on the river side.

The river itself provides wonderful activites such as crabbing from the quay and boat trips. The surrounding counrtyside is ideal for walking such as along the riverside paths or through Rendlesham and Tunstall forests. There are fascinating places to visit within a short distance from Orford, including Sutton Hoo, Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge Tide Mill and the Suffolk Punch Trust.
Golf courses are nearby at Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Glevering.
In fact a holiday in Orford has sufficient variety to please everyone!
