Being regular visitors to Orford, it's always fun to try something different, so we booked the bank holiday at Jenny' cottage. So glad we did, as it's a marvellous relaxing escape from London. It had all the privacy, space and amenities two people could need. The sofa and bed are heavenly to sleep on! We had planned to do lots of walking but instead spent plenty of time relaxing, reading some of the plethora of books available ( alas I only got to book 5 in the Unfortunate Series of Events) and listening to the cds. It's only a hop, skip and jump in to the heart of Orford and all that this wonderful village has to offer. Thoroughly recommend to everyone and hope we get to spend a bit longer here next time.

Jenny's place is perfect for exploring this beautiful part of Suffolk and also perfect if like us you just want to relax for a few days and explore Orford with its gorgeous walks and food. This is a little piece of loveliness where you can drop off the world for a few days and relax. Thank you Jenny.

This is a lovely cottage and we really enjoyed our stay. We also enjoyed Orford, which we had never been to before. We will probably be making a return visit!

This is a lovely, cosy cottage and we had a very restful time in it. It is very comfortable with a good firm mattress. It is a great location for each access to the village, pier and surrounding countryside.

Lovely place, perfect for 2. Short walk to the quay. Both pubs very nice and an excellent meal at the Butley oysterage restaurant in the square. Orford is very pretty and well worth a visit.

What a lovely little cottage; just the perfect space to spend a few days. Jenny left quite a few goodies for us around the kitchen and lounge which was lovely as was the card welcoming us. The most comfortable mattress ensures very good nights' sleep, the kitchen is very well-equipped (there's even a NutriBullet!), and what we also loved was that there was an amazing array of books on the shelves in lounge and bedroom. Breakfast in the sun just outside the cottage's front door was a lovely way to start the day! Orford is a beautiful village. Make sure to have dinner at the Oysterage and buy fresh fish from the hut down by the riverside. The café next to it serves good breakfast and sarnies. There are plenty of good walks to be had straight from the cottage, or a short drive away. Brilliant!
