This quiet countryside self-catering Suffolk holiday cottage is set in Sudbourne and close to the small seaside village of Orford which is on the River Ore and boasts an 'English Heritage' Norman castle and a working river quay that serves sailors, fishermen and sightseers. The village has a fantastic choice of places to eat and drink including The Trinity at the Crown and Castle and Kings Head pub, the Butley Oysterage, The Jolly Sailor and a café by the quay with lovely views over the river. Across the river is the National Trust's Orford Ness, the site of mysterious research projects in the 1950s and 60s but now a nature reserve.
River trips can be booked from Orford Quay down the river to see the area's famous avocets at the RSPB's Havergate Island. If you are eating in, good food can be purchased in the village from the award-winning butchers, Richardson's Smokery, Pinney's and also the Village Stores.
Sorry, no smoking, pets or unaccompanied teenagers.
Please note there is a £50 per night charge for the use of the third bedroom.
There are unfenced ponds and pools near the property and supervision of small children is advised when outside. The owners house is opposite The Cart Lodge however their garden is on the far side and there's ample space to enjoy privacy and seclusion.
