August ‘Antics for Adults’ Offer

Even in August, Orford is tranquil. While there may be some moderate bustle during the day, by evening the village is as quiet as the grave. Well, not quite that peaceful – we prefer live bodies checking in to the C&C, otherwise what would be the point of our August ‘Antics for Adults’ offer?  Whether you’d prefer to frolic in the cool shade of Rendlesham Forest or in Benjamin Britten’s library, there’s something for everyone.  PS We only have 2 family rooms, with a minimum guest age of 8 years, so any antics are strictly PG or above.

This offer runs from Sunday, 5th August to Thursday, 30th August, excluding the 3-night Bank Holiday weekend – see High Days and Holidays.

Our ‘Antics for Adults Offer includes:
two nights in a Hypnos super king* bed
a 2-course a la carte dinner on both evenings
full English breakfast on both mornings
a complimentary jug of Pimms on one afternoon of your stay **
a scrumptious package of Pinney’s smoked fish to take home with you***

The tariff, per room shared by two people, is:
Good house double  440
Better house, Garden or Courtyard double  520
Best House and Terrace  620
Suite  770

Useful links to some of the antics you can enjoy nearby this summer:
