DescriptionOn Orford's pretty village green, halfway between the Quay and Orford's fascinating Norman church, this charming Grade II listed timber framed cottage has been tastefully refurbished to create a really lovely holiday cottage for up to 4 people. The finish is utterly contemporary, the kitchen a delight - all this without losing any of the cosy cottage feel. Perfect for a break on the Suffolk coast at any time of year.
About the property: A traditional Suffolk cottage located on Orford's pretty village green on Quay Street, just yards from the estuary, Lismore Cottage has all the ingredients for a perfect seaside holiday for the family or a couple of friends, for the winter there is lovely log burning stove and full central heating, whilst summer visitors will enjoy the large terrace with table and chairs and the pretty fenced garden - there is even a summer house where you can store your bikes.
Totally refurbished for letting in 2014, Lismore Cottage has a charming sitting room with oak flooring, a log burning stove, Smart TV, wi fi and a good selection of books and games. There is a modern feel throughout the kitchen, utility room (with washing machine and dryer) and luxurious bathroom which includes both a lovely large bath and large and lovely walk in shower. Upstairs there are two lovely bedrooms, the really spacious double includes a king sized bed.
This Suffolk Holiday Cottage is ideal for: A great holiday and just 200 yards from Orford's attractive quay, with its constant attraction of small sailing crafts and yachts, and boat trips to Havergate Island and Orford Ness, there is lots to see and do whatever your age or interest.
Perhaps one of the most attractive coastal villages on the East coast, Orford retains both a fascinating 12th century castle and church. Well provided with village shop, a butchers, a fresh fish stall, craft shops, excellent restaurants and traditional pubs everything is on your doorstep.
On the banks of the Ore, Orford is protected from the sea by a fascinating shingle bank,Orford Ness, which runs from Aldeburgh to the sea. Accessible by ferry, Orford Ness is now managed by the National Trust; here you can find out about this strange and ever changing landscape, the many ground nesting and sea birds nesting here or trace the mysterious history of the area's war time occupation both for secret development of radar and munitions and in the defence of Britain. From Orford Quay one can take a boat trip to Havergate Island, the first RSPB reserve and home of the avocet.
Orford is within easy access of both Snape and theSnape Maltings Concert Hall and the seaside town of Aldeburgh, where the Aldeburgh Festival began life some fifty years ago.
The market town of Woodbridge is within half an hours drive along pleasant rural lanes and has plenty of interesting historic buildings, galleries, a quayside theatre and restaurant, a picturesque river walk and a great selection of pubs and tearooms.
Eating In: Orford General Stores stocks almost everything and the staff are friendly and really helpful. Next door is the award winning Pump Street Bakery, with an amazing and tempting selection of pastries and artisan bread, made by hand, using traditional methods and natural ingredient. Alternatively, the nearest Waitrose and Tesco are 10 miles away in Saxmundham and will deliver to this address.
Eating out: There are two fine pubs -The King's Head and The Jolly Sailor- and two great restaurants - The Trinityand The Butley Orford Oysterage- within 2 minutes walk of Lismore Cottage. A short drive away, or cycle ride, is the village of Chillesford and The Froize Inn, which is rustic, charming and has an excellent menu.

A very nice property with a great garden. Mrs Sylvia Mullin - 30th July 2018
Lovely property; garden in particular is a beautiful spot and very well planted and maintained. This is a cosy, yet light property which is comfortable; the very good quality bedlinen and good shower are particularly noteworthy! Lounge and main bedroom are very good sizes for the cottage and add a sense space. Ms Yasmin Ahmed - 4th June 2018
