  • "Problem with ants in kitchen, although rectified."

    Surprised at 2nd shower room (although minor maintenance issues with shower head not properly attached/leaking and doors not closing properly). Generally well-equipped and clean. Bbq gas empty and gas hose looked perished/dangerous. Patio area facing lawn could do with sweeping. Convenient location for village amenities and nice view of castle from sitting room. Easy access to footpath. Would happily return next year.

  • "Two Chantry Barn, Orford was lovely."

    We have nothing negative to say. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, not a single negative comment. When we sat in the garden it was like it was ours, our dog Winniethepooch2021 had a great time, as you will see if you look at her Instagram page. This Barn was first class. Thank you.

  • "We had a fabulous stay in this very well equipped and comfortable accommodation."

    We have stayed before in Orford a few times and this has been our favourite so far. All the kitchen equipment was super all excellent quality and replaced when things have got burnt or scratched. The position is fantastic with fabulous walks on your door.We would nt hesitate to book again .

  • "Our second stay at 2 Chantry Barn."

    It has been improved with an additional shower room and toilet installed on the first floor. Everything comfortable and clean and a great view of the castle (although not sure about the colour of the new lime render to the castle). Granddaughters loved the bats in the garden in the evening. Shame the weather wasn’t kind (it was cold not flaming June) but have to concede that is outside the owners and Best of Suffolk’s control. I’d recommend this well-placed, comfortable accommodation for an Orford stay.

  • "Absolutely fabulous - very well set up, great location and proper parking (not so simple in Orford)."

    Sparkling clean and comfortable. Best multiple sets of matching crockery ever seen in a holiday cottage - generally lovely touches going the extra mile. Orford and this location make up the complete package.Few hundred yards to the castle, 5 mins to shoreline. Little foodie paradise - bakery and chocolate shop are amazing. Superb fish restaurant, smokery & oysters, fish shack on the shoreline plus lovely little cafe also there. 3 pubs I haven’t tried. Superb walking country and Orford ness is well worth a visit on aNational Trust tour. Will be back.

  • "Excellent short stay Really lived the accommodation."

    Everything we needed but due to a recent hip replacement would have appreciated a non slip mat for the shower. Only one key in the box incase you think we took one home!

  • "Lovely property in a beautiful Suffolk village."

    Everything provided for a comfortable stay - one of the bedrooms is on the ground floor along with the kitchen/eating, living area and modern shower room. Great for those who prefer one level living. Welcome pack gratefully received. Will definitely book again.

  • "This was our third visit to 2 Chantry barns in three years so you know we love it."

    We are both in our eighties and find the pace and the amenities of Orford ideal for us. Two small things caused us a little concern with the house this time. The dishwasher seems to be very loose in its housing and makes an alarming noise as you close the front... and the shower head is showing distinct signs of wear- a simple replacement job.

    The dishwasher housing has now been tightened and the shower head descaled now looking like new. Thank you for your feedback Property Owner

The property

Forming part of an authentic barn conversion of a Victorian dairy in rural Orford in Suffolk, Two Chantry Barns boasts accommodation literally bursting with character and original features.

Ideal for couples or a small family, the property is incredibly bright and airy with floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings helping to create a real feeling of light and space.

The open-plan living space has that all-important ‘wow’ factor with an attractive seating area benefiting from floor-to-ceiling windows and fabulous views over the gardens.

A flat-screen TV and loads of board games are provided to make sure you are entertained even on rainy days!

The kitchen has been well fitted and has everything needed to produce great food for your holiday party and a contemporary dining table has been cleverly positioned next to the patio door offering great views over the gardens; you can imagine spending time here catching up with each other’s holiday adventures and enjoying long, lazy meals together.

The outside space is fantastic with a charming patio area all set up for chilling out and communal gardens great for children and the dog to run around in.

If you are looking for an alternative sociable space then the mezzanine is a unique feature and overlooks the open-plan living space and has captivating views over the gardens.

The provision of a ground-floor bedroom and shower room is great for people with limited mobility and the upstairs bedroom is stylishly presented and offers a suitably relaxing space in which to chill out.

After a morning coffee on the terrace, you’re good to go and ready to explore the delights that Suffolk has to offer!

Within a short walk is the charming town of Orford which has an excellent range of shops and amenities and from here you can book a river trip from Orford Quay to Havergate Island which is famous for avocets so make sure you take your camera.

Head up the coast to seaside towns such as Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Southwold or head inland for great attractions such as Go Ape Thetford, Africa Alive Zoological Reserve, Framlingham Castle, Snape Maltings and Henstead Exotic Gardens.
