"The location is wonderful and the garden area a definite plus. Inside, the rooms were very comfortably and solidly furnished [not always the case with some of the smaller cottages we've stayed in!] The kitchen was well equipped and clean and the dining area comfortable for two. All in all a really comfortable place."

"Been a nice week despite the pretty terrible weather. Likeour house here very much and Wilf the Labradoodle has also been very comfortable. Lovely clean house with excellent facilities - very warm ad cosy. Big plus the bakery, Pinneys and the Fish restaurant - excellent, a real treat. "
"Really enjoyed our stay in this clean and well equipped cottage. Orfordness was, as always, magical and we saw and heard cuckoos there. At Minsmere we saw an Otter and heard Bitterns,. Two pubs in the village are both good and we enjoyed dinner in the Fish Restaurant. I am sure The Pump Street Bakery has contributed tour waistlines."
"Orford is lovely, peaceful and relaxing. We really enjoy the short walk to the Quay and looking at the boats and birds. The cottage makes a good base, we have spent happy times reading and eating in the garden."
"We have enjoyed staying in this really comfortable cottage. WE have stayed in small cottages before but few are as well furnished and presented at this one - and its in the best part of the village, close to places to shop and eat. Orford is such a relaxing place and then its close for other interesting places - Snape Maltings & the musical Festival, Aldeburgh, Minsmere & Sutton Hoo. There's been brilliant weather and lunching in your lovely garden!"
"A heatwave, Wimbledon and the World Cup plus this splendid cottage - what a week! Thank you for the cleanliness and comfy beds and the welcome pack on arrival. The peace and quiet found here, after the noise of London, has been a real blessing,"

Never stayed in Orford before but love the village. VIsited our favourite spots in Aldeburgh, Snape, Ramsholt & Woodbridge and of course the lovely weather made it perfect. P.s. our dog Sadie loved the garden."
"Have stayed in this cottage before, b ut it seems better - comfortable beds and a great TV. The weather has been amazing, the Pump Cottage has been and ideal base. Orford is such a delightful Village and we'll be taking goodies home from the bakery & Pinneys. Mostly ate excellent lunches and dinner at The Crown & Castle, so didn't have to walk far. Dusty the dog really enjoyed the secure garden and many thanks for the Welcome pack - see you next month, when we return."
"Had a wonderful week here, very relaxing, did some walking, eating and drinking. Never been to this area before, will definitely be coming back."

"Thank you for a lovely stay in your cosy cottage. We have had a very relaxing couple of days enjoying Orford. Your welcome pack went down a treat, our son loved the caramel shortbread and we enjoyed the wine with some local cheese in your delightful garden surrounded by Butterflies and Bees. We have found the Kings Head very friendly, good food & beer. Bought bread from the bakery and cheese from the local shop - all lovely. Enjoyed an ice cream and a blanket on the green outside the Jolly Sailor - excellent! I am sure we will return again to Orford."

More lovely meals at The Crown & Castle and two lovely BBQ's in the sweet garden with great pork and fresh veg from Orford Stores. Many t hanks for a super welcome pack. Look forward to our return in October. Thank you"
