The owner of Orford Cottages, Sue Cartlidge, has now started her well-earned retirement, and we’re pleased to tell you that the majority of Sue’s cottages are now available to book through Best of Suffolk!
Here are the 4 new cottages which you can now book online:
On a quiet side street in the pretty town of Orford sits beautiful Vesta Cottage, a successful fusion of charming period cottage and contemporary design. Only a short stroll from both the market square – where there is a fresh bakery and choice of renowned pubs and restaurants – and the Quay with its breath taking views of the River Ore and Orford Ness.
Inside on the ground floor you will find an open plan living space with a contemporary kitchen with a high island table for dining, and a large sitting area complimented by a wood-burning stove. There’s a ground floor double bedroom with an in-room shower and en-suite cloakroom. On the first floor there’s a double bedroom and bathroom.
This property enjoys a magical setting, on the outer reaches of Orford in the heart of the Suffolk Heritage Coast. Situated down a private track, this cottage has long-ranging views across the open countryside of Sudbourne Park from the spacious garden and towards Orford Castle from the lane infront of the property. Although this cottage has modest origins, as an Edwardian workers cottage, it now affords a special venue for those guests looking to enjoy the Suffolk countryside. Orford’s market square is a short drive or pleasant walk away, where you will find Trinity restaurant at The Crown and Castle – Ruth Watson’s renowned eatery, the Kings Head – a charming pub with a glowing reputation, an artisan bakery/cafe and a lively village store and cafe.
Upon entering this single storey property you will find yourself in a small entrance porch where there is a door straight ahead to the cloakroom, or turning left into the living area which wraps around the open fire’s chimney. Passing through the living area you will find the kitchen/diner at the rear of the property which has a door that opens into the large garden outside. The hallway from the living area leads you to the bathroom at the front of the property, the master bedroom at the rear of the property, and the twin room at the end of the hall facing the front of the property.
Three Chantry Barns, Orford is a high quality bespoke conversion of a Victorian dairy barn that once formed part of Chantry Farm. It is in a quiet corner of the town, a stone’s throw from Orford’s famous castle and on a delightful path to the River Ore and Orford Quay. Orford town centre is a minutes’ walk away, where you will find Ruth Watson’s renowned eatery The Crown and Castle restaurant, the Kings Head, a charming pub that serves good food, an artisan bakery and a lively village store and cafe.
The property has been lovingly converted with the original beams and a solid oak staircase contributing to the property’s character, while meeting all of the modern needs we have today. Upon entering you will find yourself in a small entrance hall where you can hang your coat and store your footwear. On the ground floor there’s a spacious yet cosy kitchen/dining/living room, a bunk bed room and a shower room. An angled staircase leads to the first floor where you will find two bedrooms (king and twin) and a shower room. Outside there’s a communal patio garden and off road parking.
