  • "What a gem- the generosity of spirit of the owners made us feel like we were staying with friends."

    Nowadays many cottages just provide the bare minimum - there was an excess of all the essentials here. As two couples who had just hosted separate big family Christmases this was a New Year oasis of Scandi calm and a treat. From the beautiful toiletries, wide range of cookery/home books and calm surroundings it definitely felt more like staying at a spa.....and I haven't even started on how great Orford is for walks and eateries. A perfect start to 2024!

  • "One of the best holiday lets we have ever stayed in, every little detail was attended to."

    The only improvements could have been making sure the door in the downstairs en suite was repaired, my son’s partner almost got stuck, despite the note left for us about it and simple instructions available for the hob, oven and dishwasher….more sophisticated than we are used to!! Other than that a wonderful week, despite storm Ciaran trying to do its best!

    It is a beautiful house, in a beautiful village. The owner, Jodie, is very attentive to guests and supplies a superb welcome pack. What more could you ask for! We have already booked for 2024.

  • "This is one of the most outstanding properties we have stayed in."

    This was our second visit and we were instantly 'at home' in this well-appointed, delightful house, so thoughtfully and tastefully refurbished by the owner. To spend a week at The Dunns is to really relax, unwind and let go; enjoying the house and its lovely surrounding countryside.

The property

A beautiful seaside house with a partial wooden exterior, garden and off-road parking, The Dunns is perfect for a family or group of adults looking to explore the coast of Suffolk.

Enter into a world of opulence as you make your way into a stunning sitting room with wooden flooring stretching throughout, and cosy up in the selection of sofas, catching up on some reading as you get toasty beside the woodburning stove.

When mealtimes call, the kitchen/diner will not disappoint, offering many amenities, stylish grey and white furniture, and a delightful selection of plants adding a pop of colour to the room.

There is also access through the glass doors to the rear courtyard and front garden, where dining alfresco is a must.

In keeping with the contemporary theme of the rest of the property, the two bedrooms are simply wonderful, each with an en-suite, beginning with a ground-floor super-king-size zip-link with storage and shower-room and there is also the option of a stunning king-size upstairs, where large windows offer views of the local area and a selection of chairs placed on a fluffy rug are a great spot for morning coffee before freshening up in the en-suite.

The local area of Orford sits beside the River Alde, where local independent shops, pubs and restaurants await your exploration, and why not take a stroll along the river or visit the impressive Orford castle?

Surround yourself with fresh air and wonderful wildlife at Orford Ness national Nature Reserve or Captains Woods.

A little further from the property you can find a selection of beaches where you can picnic in the salty air before trying out a new water sport, most notably the quaint seaside town of Aldeburgh.

With such a wonderful location, you are bound to make a holiday to remember with a stay at The Dunns.

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

About the location


Snape Maltings 5 miles; Woodbridge 12 miles;

The attractive, unspoiled fishing village of Orford is situated on the bank of the River Alde and looked over by its magnificent 12th century castle built by Henry II. The village is home to a hotel and restaurant, two pubs, village store, bakers and wonderful fish restaurant and smokehouse. Orford is surrounded by farm land and forest in an area known as the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Centrally located, just 12 miles from Woodbridge to the south and Aldeburgh to the north, and just 5 miles from the famous Snape Maltings complex. The village of Orford is steeped in history. Henry II commissioned a castle to be built in the 12th century which is a must see when you visit the area. Owned and maintained by English Heritage you can enjoy this wonderful 'keep' and from the top there are breathtaking views for miles on a clear day.
