3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7
Orford, Suffolk, East Anglia, England
Dovepoint Cottage is named after a point in the river which can just be glimpsed from the children's bedroom. Built in 1878 by Sir Richard Wallace (Wallace Collection) the owner of the Sudbourne Estate which surrounds Orford, the cottage is one of a row of 4 terraced cottages facing the church. With offstreet parking for one or two cars, access is via a private drive to the side of the cottages. There is a charming quiet garden with table and chairs, ideal for a summer lunch.
A hidden gem on the Suffolk coast, Orford is a delightful spot for a weekend break or a week or two. Spend your days going round the Castle, visiting the RSPB's Havergate Island, touring the National Trust's Orfordness, a river trip on Lady Florence or a local fishing boat. Buy fresh fish or lobster from the Brinkley's shed on the shoreline. Children...

The third "bedroom" is a windowless, doorless loft space, so the house however pleasant shouldn't be booked by more than a couple with their children (max 3). Facilities were generally good and Orford is a lovely village.
