Hello – if you are looking for somewhere nice to stay this Bank Holiday Sunday, you’ve just found it. We have one Best Garden room available (which is also dog-friendly). The offer includes a really good 3-course a la carte dinner, with free choice of dishes, and our award-winning breakfast which includes such delights as Orford-smoked salmon & scrambled eggs, as well as French toast, crisp bacon & maple syrup and other scrumptious things. The rate per couple is 285.00 and includes all the above.
Call us on 01394 450205 to book or make further enquiries.Room photos and a full description can be found under Room Details.
April and May can flatter to deceive but with the longest day of the year in June, we are undeniably approaching mid-summer. For music and arts lovers, the Aldeburgh Festival will be in full spate. Our kitchen, too, will be flush with crates of locally grown, caught or produced foods. There’s lots to do – and lots not to do, if you prefer. Whatever your pleasure, it’s a wonderful time to be in Suffolk, especially Orford.
The Sunny June 2-night package is available on midweek nights from Sunday, 22nd May until Thursday, 30th June (i.e. excluding Friday and Saturday). It includes a two-course a la carte dinner each evening, with free choice of dishes, and full English breakfast each morning. To add to the bounty, you’ll be given a scrumptious package of Pinney’s Orford-smoked fishes to take home, as well a voucher to collect a sourdough loaf (and buy some other goodies?) from the marvellous Pump Street Bakery in the square.*
The rates for all the above, per couple occupying the room, are:
Good House 430
Better House 510
Best Garden & Courtyard 540
Best House & Terrace 610
Small print: If you would like a third course it is charged at a flat 7.50. If you would like to stay longer the rates are pro rata – or you could transfer to B&B only, if you prefer. *Please be aware the Bakery is closed on Monday and Tuesday so the voucher will not be dispensed on those days.
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.
