Description

In the heart of the lovely coastal village of Orford, near Aldeburgh, Mariners Cottage is just a few yards from Orford quay and only a short walk from Market Hill and the imposing 12th century Orford Castle. Mariners Cottage is a 17th century mid terrace brick-constructed fisherman cottage nicely updated to create a comfortable holiday cottage for up to 4 people. To the rear there is a small enclosed patio, very sheltered from the wind, in sun most of the day during the summer months. This really is a comfortable bolt-hole for exploring all that Suffolk has to offer. 

Ideal for a couple with or without children looking for a comfortable break in beautiful surroundings with all amenities within walking distance. Shop: 0.1 miles, Pub: 0.1 miles. 

Why we love this property: Just a stone's throw from the water, Mariners Cottage couldn't be more ideally situated.

Orford is an attractive small town, dominated by the remains of a 12th Century castle keep - you may like to climb to the top to enjoy the panoramic views over the town and marshes. It is also famous for Orford Ness National Nature Reserve and Havergate Island, both a delight for ornithologists and nature lovers. Sailing and boat trips are available on the River Ore, with country walks in Rendlesham Forest. It is only nine miles from the beach at Aldeburgh, with the historic towns of Framlingham and Woodbridge and the world-famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall also within easy reach.
