We’re very busy during July, the gods be praised – except Zeus – but with regards to the coming weekends, we can offer a single Friday night DB&B stay this week (1st July) in a Best Terrace room (30). Please see ROOM DETAILS for full info.
Tuck into a very good 3-course dinner with your choice of dishes from our full a la carte (no set menus, hurrah!) and relish a relaxing breakfast that includes such delights as Orford-smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or French toast with crisp bacon and maple syrup, as well as the more traditional dishes. The rate per couple is a nicely discounted 290.00.
If you would prefer to have a complete loll, we can also offer a 2-night weekend stay (Friday and Saturday, 3rd and 4th July) in either a Good House double or our fabulous Suite. Again, dinner and breakfast, as described above, are both included for each night and morning of your stay. The rate per couple in the former room is 460.00 and in the Suite it’s 790.00. Please see ROOM DETAILS for full info.
And, rather importantly our beds are fabulously comfortable – mostly Hypnos top-of-the-range – and mostly king size, i.e. 6ft wide. Only the Good House doubles have 5ft wide beds and our Better Double, room 7, has a 5ft 6″ wide bed.
Breakfast, too, is a cut above the average, offering such delights as freshly squeezed (really freshly squeezed!) orange juice, natural yoghurt with fresh fruit salad or our lovely dried fruit compote, with or without granola, as well as hand-cut toast with High House Farm’s terrific loganberry jam or Wendy Brandon’s marmalade. The hot dishes are cooked to order (no horrible dried up scrambled eggs on a buffet) and feature everything from the traditional full English to French toast, crisp bacon & maple syrup and oak-smoked haddock with a poached Maple Farm organic egg on top.
Midweek only bed and breakfast rates, per person, are:
Good House 80.00
Better House 100.00
Best Garden & Courtyard 88.00
Best House & Terrace 125.00
NB these rates do not apply for single occupancy of a room. Weekend rates (Friday and Saturday) are dinner, bed and breakfast only. For enquiries or bookings please call 01394 450205
From June through to September we are offering price-conscious but lovely 3, 5 or 7-night breaks at the Crown and Castle in Orford – a haven of tranquillity. That’s not to say there’s nothing to do apart from rest, eat and read. Gentle diversions range from rambling through fabulous forests or along the river Ore, going to Aldeburgh Music concerts or snaffling up marvellous Suffolk produce at various food festivals and farmers’ markets. A visit to the amazing Orford Ness is pretty much mandatory, but there’s also bird-watching or walking at RSPB Minsmere near Dunwich beach or, closer to home, climbing to the top of Orford Castle. Suffolk really is a wonderful county to explore, with little risk of traffic jams or crowds.
The packages below are designed for two people sharing a room and include a 2-course a la carte dinner with free choice of dishes on your chosen evenings*** and full English breakfast each morning. As ever, your stay will be enhanced by very comfortable Hypnos beds (all king-size except for the Good House rooms); stylish Arran Aromatic toiletries; chocolate almond mattonelle biscuits, high quality teas and coffee as well as fresh milk in your room; walking guides and maps; and a terrific, up-to-date DVD collection.
