First there is the 3-night August Bank Holiday weekend to have a look at. While it’s busy and there’s plenty to do in Orford, it’s not ‘rammed’ as it is in Aldeburgh and Southwold. Quite civilised, in fact.
Our 3-night Christmas package has now sold out but we still have space for the 3-night New Year package.
We are open for Boxing Day brunch and New Year’s Day brunch. Menus are available to look at below. (Please note there are no variations available on these two occasions.)
Our 2-night Festive Flop package is available on 27th/28th December and 29th/30th December and is selling fast but there are still a variety of rooms available.
If you fancy a pre-Christmas treat we will be in festive mode from Thursday, 14th December 2017. The reindeer are still on holiday and a tree will be up in their corner instead. And, as usual, everything from staircases and mantelpieces to window sills and tables will be festooned with tasteful decorations.
We are pleased to offer our 3-night August Bank Holiday package, which offers great food, comfortable accommodation, tea and cake on arrival, an allowance for Pump Street Bakery and a package of Pinney’s smoked fishes to take home. All a lot better than standing in a queue at Gatwick for 7 hours.

Good house room 720
Better House, Garden and Courtyard rooms 840
Best House or Terrace double 990
Orford Ness is only open on the Saturday but the Castle is open every day over the weekend. If access is not possible to either venue for any reason, the value of the entrance tickets may not be redeemed for cash or deferred to another occasion.
The Pump Street Bakery allowance of £20 can be spent on any service or products at the Bakery but no change will be given if the amount is not fully utilised nor may the allowance or part allowance be deferred to any other dates.
The 2-night Festive Flop package is available for either Wednesday and Thursday, 27th and 28th December or Friday and Saturday 29th and 30th December. Even though it seems a long time hence this package is hugely popular so we recommend booking sooner rather than later.
The 2-night package includes a 2-course a la carte dinner each evening, with free choice of dishes, and full English breakfast each morning. And, to take home, we are offering our usual present of a whole side of Pinney’s oak-smoked salmon, two lemons, a Pump Street Bakery voucher for a sourdough loaf, and a bottle of our very nice house white wine – all designed to help solve the NYE catering problems if you’re having friends or family over for the occasion.
2-night tariff per couple per room Good House 440
Better House, Garden & Courtyard 550
Best House & Terrace 650
