Love airports, queues, security, delays, lost baggage, tedium and misery? No, didn’t think so. Rest assured Orford is utterly tranquil with marvellous walking through woods or along the river – and we don’t lose your luggage. As ever, your stay will be enhanced by thoughtful service, comfort and excellent food. We love this time of year when we can use locally grown soft fruits, from gooseberries to loganberries, as well as home-grown tomatoes, runner beans, Suffolk lamb and Orford lobster in some form or another.
The Lovely Jubbly 3-night offer runs throughout July with arrival on any day of the week. A 2-course a la carte dinner with free choice of dishes is included on two evenings (leaving you free to eat out on one other*) and full English breakfast each morning.

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.
