"Thank you for letting us your absolutely beautiful house. The art work is just amazing and lights up the whole house. We were blown away! We had perfect weather and even managed to drink on the patio in the early evening. Everything was just wonderful, including the little rabbits on the lawn in the morning, and the little wood pigeon ducks in the tree. We'll be back to put the wood burner to use in the winter, and to re-visit The Crown for another fabulous meal."
"We brought our family together for a 30th wedding anniversary celebration. Three generations enjoying this lovely cottage. Very comfortable and perfectly placed for walks and exploring the countryside. Home from Home."
You'll know you're somewhere special as soon as you step into the main living area which is sure to be at the centre of your holiday. All four bedrooms are a generous size and will be furnished to an equally high standard so no guests will feel 'short changed'! The two on the ground floor are well suited to guests with a mobility issue, and the shower room sits off the inner hallway too, making it easily accessible for both rooms. On the first-floor you'll find the other two bedrooms, both with far-reaching views over the garden to the countryside beyond; the contemporary bathroom sits between the two.
There are few better places on the Suffolk coast to stay than the small fishing village of Orford, with excellent local food found in shops and eateries, complemented by a relaxed way of life and spot of history with the castle. The outdoor space 'at home' is also particularly well suited to families, with space and furniture for long lazy lunches and BBQs, as well as a lawn for kids and pets to run around in the fresh air. Parking's not a problem with space on the drive and the track which takes you from the main road to The Artist's House.
The front door takes you into the porch, with WC ahead of you and super open plan living/kitchen/dining room to the left, with tri-folding doors to the garden. Beautiful wooden floors are in the living space and inner hall, with carpets in the bedrooms and tiles in the shower room.
