Carry On Regardless June Offer

A politically fraught May and June, with everything on hold, is becoming an annual event. All the more reason to shrug off the hard, soft and who-gives-a-damn tribulations and remember it’s good to be alive. To offer both respite and delight, we herewith present our 2-night dinner, bed & breakfast package, available from 1st June to 1st July 2017, seven days a week. Not hard, not soft but very comfortable.

The Carry On Regardless 2-night package includes:
two nights’ comfortable accommodation
a 2-course a la carte dinner on both evenings, with lobster on the menu in some form or another
full English breakfast on both mornings
a complimentary jug of Pimms on one afternoon of your stay *
a free boat trip for two on Regardless  **

There is a small pun in the title as Regardless is the open-topped boat that goes south down the river, passing the Castle on the right and the ‘Chinese pagodas’ on the left. The boat sails past Havergate Island and the bird reserve and returns passing Orford Ness before arriving back at the Quay.
Pimms is a summery sharpener based on gin, ginger ale and lemonade, with horticultural embellishments.

The cost of the 2-night package, per room shared by 2 people is:
Good house double  440
Better house, Garden or Courtyard double  520
Best House and Terrace  620
Suite  770

3, 5 and 7-night holidays 2017

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 from 1st April until Tuesday, 31st October 2017, including weekends except the  May and August Bank Holiday weekends.

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. (This year it’s their 50th birthday so there will be even more events to enjoy.) In Orford itself, you could climb to the top of the Castle and drink in the views, or visit the amazing Ness. It’s only open on Saturdays from Easter to July and then from Tuesday – Saturday until the end of September but everyone comes back mesmerised by its sparse and intriguing beauty. There’s also bird-watching or walking at RSPB Minsmere near Dunwich beach or a visit to Sutton Hoo. Suffolk really is a wonderful county to explore, with no traffic jams or horrible 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 super king-size except for the Good House rooms with have 5′ wide beds), a full complement of stylish Arran Aromatic toiletries, Shortbread House Sweet Oatie 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 if you don’t want to go out.
