Based in the quaint village of Orford, this pretty cottage makes an ideal base for a family looking for a break close to the Suffolk coast. The modern interior reflects the coastal setting with a coherent palette of pebble tones, driftwood furnishings and paintings of sailboats. You’re in the heart of the village, with the local bakery on your doorstep, but the cottage still feels like a tranquil retreat. Enjoy sunny mornings in the courtyard garden and while away rainy days in the converted garage games room, complete with ping pong and table football. With plenty of room in the garden for bikes, cycling fans will love pedalling along the banks of the River Ore. Alternatively, if walking’s more your pace, pack your hiking boots for windswept walks on the coast. You’re less than a ten-minute stroll away from the National Trust owned Orford Ness Nature Reserve and Beach, and the sophisticated seaside town of Aldeburgh is just twenty minutes by car.
