Minutes from fine cafes, restaurants and lovely pubs, Millers Cottage enjoys superb views and is a wonderful base for sailing, walking and cycling.

Reviews

In general Millers Cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. Orford is a beautiful and historic village which was once an important port. There are a number of unique and interesting places to eat within the village and beyond. We return to the Suffolk Coast at least once per year, usually choosing to stay either in Orford or Aldeburgh. There is always plenty to do and see locally, no matter the weather or season.Mr Jan Szczegolski - 2nd August 2017
We loved Millers Cottage and would be very happy to stay there again.Mrs Diana Lightfoot - 18th July 2017
We have rented Miller's Cottage three times now and have just re-booked for the autumn. It has almost everything we could want from a straightforward holiday cottage. Ms Frances Magee - 5th July 2017
