The Crown and Castle in Orford Suffolk

My husband David and I, together with long-term friend Tim Sunderland, own and run The Crown and Castle in Orford Suffolk. We have 21 bedrooms and a lively bistro, the Trinity, which serves decent, unpretentious food.

Our desire is to offer thoughtful, unstuffy service and to provide a truly relaxing, unstressed atmosphere.
