Well, that’s not unlike September in Suffolk when the produce is just as lip-smackingly bountiful. From sourdough bread, honey and chocolate to game, lamb and locally caught fish and lobster – not to mention cyder, juices and beer – we’ve got it all. And if browsing the local shops for wonderful comestibles weren’t enough, the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival will sate both soul and stomach.
To celebrate all these Epicurean delights, we offer you our September Tuck-in package
*two nights in a very comfortable bed
*a 2-course a la carte dinner – with free choice of dishes – on both evenings
*our award-winning full English breakfast on both mornings
*and, to take home with you, a generous package of Pinney’s Orford-smoked salmon, a Pump Street Bakery voucher for a spanking-fresh sourdough loaf and a bottle of Aspall’s Clement’s Four cyder
The Tuck-in package is available from Sunday, 2nd September to Thursday, 27th September, excluding weekends.
The 2-night tariff, per room shared by two people, is:
Good house double 440
Better house, Garden or Courtyard double 520
Best House and Terrace 620
For those of you wanting to plan a short or longer break away this year why not take advantage of our price-conscious 3, 5 or 7-night packages. Not only do they incorporate varying discounts on our normal rates but you can also take them anytime you wish until Saturday, 28th October.
The packages include weekends but please note if your stay does run over a Friday or Saturday night, then one dinner must be taken on the Saturday.
Whether you just want to rest, eat, and drink or indulge in a gentle diversion, there’s something for everyone. For example, there are brilliant rambles through our fabulous forests or along the river Ore. Then there’s Snape Maltings where you can buy anything from a perfect soup bowl to a packet of fudge and where the brilliant Aldeburgh Music concerts also take place. There’s also bird-watching or walking at RSPB Minsmere near Dunwich beach or a visit to Sutton Hoo.
