Lovely cosy cottage in a quiet location, perfect for the two of us and our dog. Great local walks and restaurants.

mr W,

A week wasn't long enough! We loved all the quirky aspects of the cottage, it was like playing hide and seek! It was perfect for a walking/exploring break with our pooch, including a back door and utility room for addressing muddy boots and paws.

Ms P,

Very comfortable and well appointed. Tastefully furnished and decorated. Great location within Orford. Close to great bakery and fantastic Village Shop. Would definitely recommend to couples looking for a quiet, peaceful location.

Mr S,

The Lobster Pot is just perfect for a week away in Suffolk. It's a beautiful old cottage which has been renovated with all mod cons inside, including smart TV, digital radio, and a very smart kitchen. It's in a perfect spot down a quiet lane just a few seconds walk from Orford's famous bakery and chocolate shop. We would definitely come back again.

Ms H,

Well equipped, comfortable and well located.

Mr T,

The lobster pot is cosy and comfortable. It feels bigger than it is, because of the carefully done layout, and good detailing. The log fire works well. The small garden is a pleasure to sit in. It catches the sun and is beautifully planted. The roses (in June) smell amazing.

Mr R,

Perfect property in the heart of Orford - very comfortable with all that you need. Pubs and restaurants within walking distance and an ideal base for exploring Suffolk by car.

Ms M,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; it was lovely to have a note to welcome us and have some basic essentials already supplied. A little haven in a beautiful location.
