Description

Following an outstanding refurbishment of this spacious, comfortable but extremely cosy Orford property, The Stable makes a perfect self catering holiday cottage for all the family. Just yards from the riverbank and Orford's village centre, this fabulous self-catering barn conversion retains the attraction and warmth of its origins.

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)

Just take a right out of your front door and within seconds you will find yourself on one of the many circular walks which snake their way along the estuary and the coastal salt marshes towards Shingle Street in the south and Aldeburgh in the north.

This Suffolk Cottage Holidays Property: Sympathetically converted from ancient barns, The Stable has living accommodation over two floors with a large open plan living room and very spacious cloakroom on the ground floor, two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.  Ideal for a couple with children, there are twin beds in the second bedroom, it works just as well for two couples with the twin beds pushed together. Downstairs there is plenty of space for outdoor wear and boots.  

Outside: There is a large communal grassed area surrounding the barns - perfect for picnics (not dog proof). With so many wonderful walks to be had, many holidaymakers like to bring the dog and with dog bowls and basket provided all the family will enjoy their stay.  There is a designated covered parking space for your car and room within this area for under cover bike storage etc.  

About the Area: Home of the avocet, the tern and oyster catcher, there is always something wonderful to see in Orford, heart of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Orford is a delightful coastal village, with a fascinating 12th century castle keep, once a major pillar in the defence of the English coast.

Across the estuary (just a 5 minute boat ride away) is Orford Ness (an area of historic and environmental fascination run by the National Trust). A painter's paradise, there are spectacular views along the coast to Aldeburgh to the north and Havergate Island (the first RSPB bird sanctuary) to the south.

Although called a town, Orford has that village feel and size, yet boasts fine cafes, restaurants and lovely pubs. Walkers, bird watchers, cyclists and sailors agree that Orford makes the perfect base. It is a delightful location ideal for everything from a family beach holiday to an historic tour of Suffolk's finest castles and churches.

Nearest pubs are The Jolly Sailor and The Kings Head, both in Orford.

Reviews

We had a very memorable Christmas week at The Stable in Orford. It was very well equipped, warm and cosy and a perfect location for exploring and walking around the Suffolk coastline.ÂA previous customer - 28th December 2014
We have just got back from a week in The Stable. We had a lovely week in a lovely cottage and even got an amazing view of both a Hen Harrier and three owls over the marshes! Thank you for supplying such a lovely holiday retreat. We will be back.A previous customer - 26th February 2014
