A handy ground-floor WC completes this downstairs space. The one and only bedroom can be found beneath vaulted ceilings on the first floor. Accompanied by a handy en-suite, this instantly inviting bedroom offers plenty of cushy furnishings for catching forty winks or getting yourself ready in the morning.

A perfect location surrounded by wildlife and with far reaching views. Clean and comfortable and very quiet! This was our second visit and we are probably going to book for 2024. Lots to do in South Suffolk. Orford has pubs, seafood, bread, meat and groceries, plus 3 good pubs. It also boasts a castle! The owners of accommodation great hosts.

We loved the quiet location of the Green Shed and the views from the lounge and patio area over open countryside. The cottage is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Owner sent us a text when the cottage was ready so we were able to arrive an hour early, which was appreciated. She had also provided a nice starter pack of local produce.

The Green Shed is perfectly situated to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside along with all its abundant wildlife. The views from all of the windows are gorgeous.

It is an easy walk into Orford where the very well stocked general store has good opening hours. The owners of The Green Shed are really friendly. Not intrusive at all but there to chat to or if any questions or queries need answering. An absolutely excellent escape that is difficult to leave, we thoroughly recommend The Green Shed to anyone who likes peace, quiet, open country views and wildlife. Hide

Equipment: TV-needs re-tuning to find BBC1 on main channel - eventually found it on a 900 channel; a pint glass for beers would be good; better hanging arrangements for clothes although room limitations noted. Otherwise well-equipped, thanks. Cleanliness: Utensils and oven trays had not been checked- greasy and not properly washed-up from previous Read moreuse e.g. colander in drawer and baking sheet in oven; dusty surfaces with dead flies/spiders on floor and in corners would suggest that the property had not been used in previous week or two so should have had a further sweep round before our arrival. Thank you for welcome goods-much appreciated. Details of local walks available and up-to-date leaflets on visitor attractions would add value to the welcome. Although with the local wildlife to watch, who needs to leave the property?! Hide

Such an amazing location. Really peaceful, and relaxing. We loved our stay at the Green Shed. The accommodation was lovely, and the hosts were very welcoming too. Even though this is in a lovely rural setting, you arent too far away from lovely towns / villages / beeches / pubs etc so there is always something to see and do.

Clean and very comfortable property in beautiful, quiet location. Appointed as anticipated and welcome pack was appreciated. Only suggestions would be the provision of a no-slip mat for in the shower, a further set of drinking (water/beer) glasses and a whisk. Thankyou to the owners for a very pleasant stay.

The Green Shed was absolutely lovely and the wildlife on view through the windows was mesmerising. We had never seen so many hares before. The property was about a mile walk north of Orford along quiet lanes, perfect for the pubs and restaurants in the village. The property did just want it said on the tin, it had everything we needed for a week'sRead more stay. Great location for lots of lovely days out. Do visit Orford Ness if you can. Orford Castle and also Sutton Hoo are also great. We had a really enjoyable time on our first visit to Suffolk. Hide
