DescriptionHidden behind an old high brick wall, this charming property in the very centre of Orford is perfectly positioned. The market square, with its fine bakery, general store, restaurants and pub, is just a few strides in one direction, Orford Castle, the estuary and the sea in the other. See the Daily Telegraph's recent review.

The Property: Wing Cottage was fully refurbished in 2013 and already 30% of guests have made a second booking.
With sumptuous bedrooms, spacious bathrooms (an en suite with large walk in shower to the bedroom with king sized bed, and a large family bathroom with bath and separate large walk in shower) and elegant landing, Wing Cottage has been designed with absolute comfort and relaxation in mind. Downstairs the living area is open plan with a superbly finished kitchen with breakfast bar, large dining area and sitting room with log burning stove and door to the garden. There is a nice separate study if you have to do some work. All fittings are new and every effort has been taken to make life easy. Farrow and Ball paintwork, Jim Lawrence lamps, some great quirky individual pieces to amuse, and furniture designed for comfort is a priority throughout.
The Grounds: A large and very private garden created over many years and containing some fine planting is enclosed by an old red brick wall and handmade Brampton Willow Fence (stunning). Hot tub hire available at Wing Cottage
Wing Cottage must have some of the finest views of any Orford village house. From the house you can see the estuary and the sea, from the garden there are uninterrupted and close up views of Orford Castle. There is a terrace with table and chairs and parasol, a large lawned area and a long private drive with parking for 2 cars. Entirely fenced, the garden is great for children who want to play outside.
Sleeps 4: In one king and 2 zip and link singles/super king - do remember to state which you prefer before your holiday.
This property is ideal for: With two bathrooms Wing Cottage would be great for one or two couples who want to make the most of the fantastic facilities of Orford (see Eating Out) or a couple with children (young or teenage) and with cot, high chair, baby changing mat, baby bath, bottle sterilizer, safety bedsides for a single bed and stair gate all provided - parents with toddlers or babies will be able to pack the car with ease! Do bring own bedding for the cot.
Minimum hire: Three nights; except in high season when it is a week. Friday changeover in High Season.
No smoking, no pets.
Self-catering eating and drinking: Grocery deliveries are available and there is a great selection of catering options for your stay at Wing Cottage. Pinney's of Orford have grown oysters at Butley Creek since the 1950s and their smoke house supplies mouth-watering freshly smoked fish every day, whilst Brinkleys fresh fish shed by Orford quay is the place to buy freshly caught fish - great on the bbq!
There is Orford General Stores stocking all the essentials and more, the staff are friendly and really helpful - just what you need on holiday. The smell of fresh-baked bread drifting on the breeze from just across the road will surely lead you to the excellent Pump Street Bakery, purveyors of fantastic artisan bread, made by hand, using traditional methods and natural ingredients.
Entertainment: The Property includes TV and DVD player, iPod dock, CD player/radio, DVDs and games as well as an eclectic library of books.
Eating out: The Butley Orford Oysterage. The Butley Orford Oysterage, in Orford's pretty Market Hill, was opened by the Pinney family forty years ago and remains a family business. In a relaxed bistro atmosphere, they serve fish and seafood caught daily from their boats and smoked fish from their smokehouse in Butley Creek.
The Crown & Castle, Orford, co-owned by broadcaster and presenter, Ruth Watson, the Crown and Castle has an excellent lively restaurant which has 2 AA rosettes and a Michelin bib gourmand in recognition of its excellent, locally sourced food.
The Jolly Sailor The Jolly sailor is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers good local, freshly cooked produce. It has a garden overlooking the marshes and the estuary, with climbing frame etc so is just the ticket if you want to take the children out for a meal - the fish and chips are great.
The Kings Head This historic 13th Century pub combines all the atmosphere of a traditional inn with great real ales, classic pub lunch favourites and a more traditional evening menu.
