Description

A beautifully refurbished traditional cottage in the heart of the coastal village of Orford. Super views of the castle and child and baby friendly.

SNAPE 5.5 miles (9 km) ALDEBURGH 12 miles (17 km) WOODBRIDGE 12 miles (19 km) SOUTHWOLD 26 miles (42 km) FRAMLINGHAM 13 miles (22 km)

Pump Cottage is a real gem in the heart of Orford, one of the most popular seaside villages in Suffolk, and with its nationally acclaimed restaurants, picturesque houses, 12th century church, Norman castle and traditional cottages, it still retains the peace and tranquillity that makes this area so special.

The cottage is situated in the heart of the village opposite Orford's beautifully preserved Norman castle keep. With the Alde estuary just a couple of minutes walk down the road there are opportunities for crabbing, sailing, bird watching, cycling and walking. In the heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a fantastic spot from which to explore this magical coastline; take a boat trip down the river or across to the National Trust nature reserve of Orford Ness.
 
It is a tricky choice whether to eat out or eat in. Fresh fish can be bought at Brinkley's Fish Shed down by the quay or at Pinney's whe
re you can get a great range of fresh and smoked fish. For the rest of your shopping including meat go to Orford General Store which is just off Market Hill - you can even get a coffee and sit in the sunshine by the village pump. From Wednesday through to Sunday try the Pump Street Bakery, a continental patisserie/boulangerie, for the crustiest bread and the scrummiest doughnuts - yummy!

The nearest pub is The Kings Head Inn and down by the quay is The Jolly Sailor, which now has a lovely patio and garden area with views across the marshes to the sea wall. Both pubs provide excellent food at lunchtimes and evenings.
   
The two restaurants in the town are both worth eating at. Try Ruth and David Watson's Trinity Bistro at The Crown and Castle and, if you love your fish, eat at the non-pretentious The Butley Orford Oysterage.
