Orford is an attractive small town, dominated by the remains of a 12th Century castle and museum, now look after by English Heritage - you may like to climb to the top to enjoy the impressive panoramic views over the town and marshes. Orford has a total of three pubs all serving great food and drinks as well as the family owned Pinney’s Smoke House and Butley Orford Oysterage restaurant which is well worth a visit. The popular general store has all you could need during your stay including local produce for you to sample. Just off the market square is the famous Pump Street Bakery which brings many people to this foodie destination. Orford 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 very nearby. It is only nine miles from the beach at Aldeburgh, three miles to the world-famous Snape Maltings Concert hall and the historic towns of Framlingham and Woodbridge and also within easy reach.

We had a lovely stay in Orford, after too long a lapse (2009). It was a great pleasure to stay at Mole Cottage, and we really appreciated the art and battery de cuisine especially . Linton, our fox terrier, was very happy here too. We recommend the Ramsholt Inn & Bawdsey Quay. Hopefully, we can return soon. Sarah, Alex & Linton Buchan & friends from Cambridge.

Dr Alex B,

Thank you so much for a lovely stay. We enjoyed walking around Orford. The fish & chips at Aldeburgh are the best! Pinney's smoked foods are delicious. We enjoyed looking through your cookery books. House lovely and warm. Jackie, Rob, Mum, Dad & Hoskins.

Mr Robert E,

Super stay in sunny Suffolk. What a delightful little cottage in such a lovely village! It was cosy, comfortable and exceptionally well cleaned! We did lots of lovely walks exploring the coastline. We will be recommending Mole Cottage to our friends & family and plan to return in the very near future. Many thanks!

Mrs Caroline C,
