    Everything else was very good.

  • "A lovely cottage that has everything you need and a well decked out kitchen."

    Everything works perfectly and the fire is great too. Also right next to pump street bakery which is a massive treat. I spent 3 weeks here as I was working and it was the perfect solution rather than a hotel. Would def recommend

    it had a luxurious feel to the whole place. Excellent location in the village. Only drawback was no places for coats to be hung or boots/ shoes to be put away.

The property

Resting in the historic village of Orford, Suffolk, Arlo Cottage has fantastic amenities and is the ideal base for a couple’s getaway.

For unloading your belongings park on the road outside of this lovely terraced cottage and unpack into the variety of storage available to you, before finding the long stay parking on-road a short walk from the property.

After a long journey, resting your feet in the sitting room is a must as you enjoy a cup of coffee beside the woodburning stove, a quirky blue sofa adding a pop of colour.

The kitchen/diner is simply stunning, with wooden flooring and white wood panel walls, glass bi-fold doors allowing in seas of light, and contemporary décor, making this an excellent place for you and your significant other to cook together and enjoy a romantic meal for two.

Arlo Cottage sports a king-size bedroom dressed in blue and black to contrast with white walls and sloping ceilings, and there is a wonderful bathroom where you can relax amongst the bubbles after a long day walking through the countryside.

When it comes to alfresco dining, the courtyard will not disappoint, with a table, chairs and a barbecue for you to enjoy.

Orford is a historic Suffolk village with local shops, pubs and cafes where you can grab a bite to eat before heading off to explore the stunning Orford Castle and picnic in the grounds.

If you love history, then traveling a little further to the town of Framlingham to visit another spectacular castle is a must, or there is the option to head over to the coast and visit Aldeburgh, where coastal walks, many independent shops and even a museum make you spoilt for choice with activities.

Indulge in the countryside of Suffolk with a stay at Arlo Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
