September Cornucopia

OUR Cornucopia 2-night stay starts on Sunday, 4th September – full details below – with the Alde Valley ! CORNUCOPIA ! festival starting on 17th September, yet another reason to book a stay.

As befits the name, Cornucopia will be spilling over with wonderful drawings, sculpture and paintings, all by leading Suffolk artists and all for sale. Artists include Tessa Newcomb and Freddy Morris as well as Roger Hardy, a great favourite of ours – two of his ‘found’ sculptures gracing the restaurant’s window sills.  Jason Gathorne-Hardy, the founder of the Alde Valley festivals, is generously offering a complimentary cup of tea and a piece of home-made cake to Crown and Castle guests who make the 30-minute or so journey to White House Farm in Glemham, the bucolic setting for the exhibition. ! Cornucopia ! is open midweek from 10.00 to 6.00pm and at weekends from 12 noon to 7.00pm.

OUR Cornucopia break is available during September on Sunday to Thursdays from 4th September AND the last weekend (30th September and 1st October) as well. It includes:

2 nights comfortable accommodation
a 2-course a la carte dinner (with free choice) on both evenings
full English breakfast each morning
and, to take home, a breakfast carrier replete with High House Farm apple juice, a jar of Wendy Brandon’s dark marmalade, a pound of Revett’s sausages and a voucher for a Pump Street Bakery sourdough

Rates per couple, per 2-night stay: Good House double  430   Better House double 510   Best Garden or Courtyard  460   Best House or Terrace  610   Suite 760

The best way to book your stay is by phoning us so we can make sure you have the room and facilities you need. If you are reading this at midnight, however, and are desperate to book immediately click here. If you would like to extend your stay it will be charged on pro rata terms. As the Bakery is closed on Monday and Tuesday, we regret the voucher will not be included on those days.

3- 5- and 7-night holidays

From 18th 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 (although it’s only open on Saturdays in October), 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, no 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.
