"Fabulous week weather wise in a brilliant 5* house, well equipped with everything you need. Lovely trips to Aldeburgh, Southwold are a must. Adnams Kitchen and cellar in Southwold not to be missed. Pump Street Bakery amazing for food and two nights at the Crown & Castle left little time to cook. Pinneys and the meat shed well worth a visit. A day with a picnic on Orfordness will be a great day out."
"We had a lovely weekend in a lovely cottage with our lovely friends"
"Our fifth visit to 2 Chantry Barns so you can probably guess how much we like it! It was lovely to spend a week here this time. We hope to be back very soon"
"What a lovely stay we've had here. I've never stayed in a barn before so the furnishings and surroundings are great! We love Orford and the surrounding area and will definitely be back!"
