Haha – nothing like a grammatical pun. In this instance, it’s all about eating scrumptious food at the Crown and Castle, shooting some wonderful photographs for our biennial photographic competition (should you wish – it’s not obligatory) and staying in a comfortable room. What’s not to like?
Our Eats, Shoots and Stays 3-night package runs from Sunday, 23rd June until Thursday, 25th July excluding the weekends, i.e. Friday and Saturday nights. It comprises:
3 nights accommodation (in mostly kingsize beds)
a special 3-course Suffolk-landed lobster a la carte dinner on the Tuesday night *
a freely chosen 3-course a la carte dinner on another night
full English breakfast each morning
3-night ESS package (per room shared by two)
Good House double £530
Better House and Better Courtyard £640
Best House and Best Terrace £760
Best Garden £710
We had a terrific response to our inaugural photography competition in 2011 for guests staying with us. The title of this year’s competition is Solitude and, as before, we ask for a maximum of three images (anyone submitting more will have their entire entry rejected – beware!!) all to be taken within an 8-mile radius of Orford castle and submitted as raw jpegs (max. 800 pixels in any one dimension). Full details will be posted on our website and the winners will be announced at the end of October. First prize is a 2-night dinner, bed & breakfast voucher, second prize is a 1-night dinner, bed and breakfast voucher and third prize is a £99 voucher for a 3-course dinner with a bottle of house wine.
* if you do not like lobster there are plenty of other choices available, including 28-day, dry-aged sirloin steak – and don’t worry your stay will always include a Tuesday night.
