October is normally a wonderful month and this year we’re promised fantastic autumnal leaf colour because of all the sunshine we’ve had. Summer doesn’t seem to want to leave …..
With a jolly good discount on the high season rates, our Big Skies, Small Price 2-night offer runs from Sunday, 2nd October to Monday, 31st October including weekends. The only caveat is that the two nights cannot start on a Saturday.
The Big Skies, Small Price 2-night offer comprises:
* 2 nights comfortable accommodation
* a 2-course a la carte dinner, with free choice of dishes, on both evenings
* full English breakfast each morning
* reimbursement of the entrance fee to the Red House in Aldeburgh, where you can learn much about Britten in the very good exhibition area as well as visit the library, studio, garden and ground floor of the house. Apart from the musical interest, you’ll see some very good art from Walter Sickert to Duncan Grant.
The rate for all the above, per couple per room:
Good House 399
Better House, Garden & Courtyard 499
Best House & Terrace 599
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 you are reading this at midnight and are desperate to book now just click here. If you would like a third course it is charged at a flat 7.50 per person. Dogs are welcome in certain specified Best Garden rooms at 10.00 per night, maximum two dogs per room.
From 18th September to Thursday 10th November, 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.
