  • "Great location, extremely comfortable with all amenities we needed."

  • "Chantry Barns is a lovely development."

    Cottage is very well equipped, everything you need in the kitchen, space, seating, showers all great. Only negative is the mattresses in the twin and bunks, both very uncomfortable- recommend changing because spoils an otherwise great cottage. Also suggest moving the bench by parking bay because it makes reversing into the end barn parking space difficult. Orford is a lovely village to stay, great bakery, pubs and fish smokehouse.

  • "We found the property very well supplied and prepared."

    The local facilities are good and the weather made outings very easy. Parking was simpler if we backed into the space from the driveway gate. The fridge is very small but overall we were delighted with the holiday in a quiet and pleasant area.

  • "The stand out qualities of this cottage was the perfect cleanliness and the range of equipment."

    It seemed that everything had been thought of. Location was perfect - short stroll into the village along one of the footpaths, or to the quay along another. We had a minor issue during our stay but a quick call to the caretaker had it sorted the same day - couldn't fault the helpfulness and speed the issue was addressed. The cottage sleeps 6 but there is only one designated parking bay. (hence the not perfect score for facilities) In a perfect situation we would have had two. But this really is nit-picking. A great place to stay.
