Also for foodies, The Crown & Castle in Orford is a MUST! Orford has a reputation now as a foodie town, with traditional smokeries, a fabulous bakery and several great taverns. The Crown and Castle is at the heart of the town and has views of the Norman keep which is all that remains of Orford Castle. You can indulge in an intimate candlelit dinner, including local delicacies such as Orford lobster with garlic butter, Snape asparagus with hollandaise sauce, or locally grown loganberries with Jersey cream.

Further up the Suffolk Coast, for a walk on the wild side take a look at The Ship Inn in Dunwich. Dunwich was once a thriving medieval port but is now a quiet, idyllic village bordered by the sea on one side and nature reserves on the other, including RSPB Minsmere. The romantic ruins of Dunwich monastery remain, and you can walk along the coast up to Walberswick and Southwold in one direction, or Thorpeness and Aldeburgh in the other. The Ship offers an array of comfortable and stylish rooms with views of the sea and the marshes, and has a lovely garden that includes a 300 year-old fig tree. Their food is fresh and hearty and they serve many local ales in the bar so this is a great place to escape to, especially in the winter when the roaring log fire in the main bar area is a magnet.




If a stay beside the sea appeals to you, then look no further than the relaxed and contemporary White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh. With sea view rooms and a Brasserie serving the freshest fish dishes, you can enjoy the best of Suffolk. Dine on the terrace in the summer and feel the sea breeze, or snuggle up next to your loved one in front of the open fires in the winter. What could be more romantic than an evening stroll on Aldeburgh beach before settling down to a nice glass of wine at the bar. See The White Lion to book your room.


The setting for The Oaksmere is very traditional in a Victorian/Georgian country house, but nothing about The Oaksmere could be described as stuffy or chintzy. This is a luxury boutique hotel with two relaxed fine dining restaurants, 10 distinctive bedrooms, individually designed and fabulously equipped. You'll find generous Hypnos beds, Nespresso coffee machines, large SkyHD televisions and even digital audio systems that will play your own music. Relax with a selection of Elemis cosmetics, super-soft bathrobes and fluffy towels. At The Oaksmere many of the rooms have impressive whirlpool baths plus large rain head showers with plenty of space to splash.
