About the property: A more homely retreat would certainly be difficult to find. Bailey Cottage is a newly refurbished, self catering holiday cottage in the centre of the much loved coastal village of Orford, which enjoys lovely views of the fantastically preserved Norman castle keep. Furnished to an exceptionally high standard, the cottage provides everything you could possibly need to ensure a fantastic stay in Suffolk.

The front door opens onto the sitting room with wood burning stove - perfect for winter evenings after days spent walking in the bracing air. In summer, open the stable door, sit back and admire the castle. The fully fitted kitchen looks out over the landscaped garden - this too is a real delight in summer, particularly to enjoy with a glass of wine and a book. 

A traditional cottage staircase leads to the two bedrooms, of which the Master Bedroom enjoys views of the castle. The modern family bathroom also has high-tech features, including the rain shower - a real treat! 

Parking: Off street parking can be found in the lane and in the castle car park. 

Dogs: Up to 2 medium sized, well behaved dogs are welcome at Bailey Cottage. 

This property is ideal for: A couple or friends looking for a stress free holiday on the coast. With easy access to the quay, castle, pubs and numerous footpaths, there is plenty to do right on your doorstep. Time and consideration have been taken to furnish the cottage with the holidaymaker in mind, including a landline telephone for emergency and incoming calls (signal in Orford can be patchy) and an unlimited wifi connection. 

Exploring: Orford is one of the most popular seaside villages in Suffolk and this is perhaps due to its nationally acclaimed restaurants, 12th century church and Norman castle. Despite this, it still manages to maintain its peace and tranquillity - a feature that attracts so many to the area (we can guarantee you'll be back!).  


The Alde estuary is just a few minutes walk down the road from Bailey Cottage where there are plentiful opportunities for walking, cycling, sailing, bird watching and crabbing. Orford sits within the heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a truly magical and memorable place to explore the stunning Suffolk coastline: be sure to take a boat trip down the river or to the National Trust nature reserve at the breathtaking Orford Ness

Self catering: Whilst on holiday here, sampling the local produce is a must. Fresh fish can be bought from Brinkley's Fish Shed at the quay or from Pinney's who also stock a wide selection of smoked fish. Other meat and goodies can be found at Orford General Store which is just off Market Hill. On Wednesdays through to Sundays, a visit to the famous Pump Street Bakery is essential. This continental style patisserie stocks the crustiest of bread and the scrummiest doughnuts - it even received a mention at the Oscars! 

Eating and Drinking out: The closest pub to Bailey Cottage is The Kings Head Inn, and a further walk will take you to The Jolly Sailor. Both pubs fall under the Adnams branch so you can expect excellent food at lunchtimes and evenings. 

For a more refined affair, there are two restaurants to try: the Trinity Bistro at The Crown and Castle (owned by Hotel Inspector Ruth Watson) and, if fish is your thing, The Butley Orford Oysterage
