Where Time Stands Still offer

Leave all the troubles – and travel queues – of the world behind and spend a few peaceful days at the Crown and Castle. Amble through cool, ancient woodlands, stroll along the banks of the Ore or take advantage of our complimentary entrance tickets to marvel at the beauty of Orford Ness Nature Reserve. Wherever you choose to wander, there’s plenty of quiet space to shrug off the cares of modern living. Just remember to surface from time to time for a scrumptious home-cooked breakfast or a la carte dinner with no restraints on what you choose, even for those on packages such as this.

The 2 night Time Stands Still dinner, bed and breakfast package is available from Monday, 1st August until Thursday, 1st September inclusive AND THE FIRST WEEKEND IN AUGUST, 5TH AND 6TH. It includes:

  • free entrance to Orford Ness for two including the ferry crossing*
  • two nights comfortable accommodation
  • a 2-course dinner both evenings with free choice from our normal a la carte
  • full English breakfast each morning

Rates per room per couple are:
Good House  430
Better House  510
Best Garden or Best Courtyard  460
Best House or Best Terrace  610
Suite  760

We much prefer it if you phone us to book because we can make sure you have precisely the right room for your needs and comfort, as well as your dinner requirements – but if it’s the small hours of the morning and you want to book NOW by all means book online here.

Small print: *dogs are not permitted on Orford Ness. They can either be left in your room (NOT your car) or you are welcome to substitute the tickets for a free boat trip down to Havergate Island on Regardless, an open-topped boat that welcomes dogs. **If you would like a third course at dinner, it’s just a flat 7.50 per dish. If you would like to extend your stay it will be charged on pro rata terms.

3- 5- and 7-night summer holidays

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.

3 night midweek stay* with 2 dinners (includes 5% discount on normal summer rates)
Good House  560
Best Garden & Courtyard  715
Best House & Terrace  815

5 night stay** with 3 dinners (includes 10% discount on normal summer rates)
Good House  865
Best Garden & Courtyard  1,115

7 night stay** with 5 dinners (includes 15% discount on normal summer rates)
Good House  1,185
Best Garden & Courtyard  1,510
Best House & Terrace  1,720

Smallprint: * only available from Sunday to Thursday. ** the 5- and 7-night stays may be taken at any time but cannot start on a Saturday. *** please choose which evenings you would like to eat at the time of booking as the restaurant does get very busy and and it’s advisable to secure a table for the time you want. If you would like rates for the Better House doubles or the Suite, please call reservations.
