“We very much enjoyed your stylish and cosy Wash House and the beautiful views and garden.  Thank you for being such informative hosts”


David and Jonny




“We have always loved Orford but after staying at your delightful Wash House Studio (with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in), we are even more in love with the place.  We came for a few days of peace and relaxation and we found it.


We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast delivered to us each morning and we were lucky enough to be able to eat it outside in the delightful garden. We shall certainly be back.

“The breakfast was wonderful”  I absolutely loved the marmalade.  The coffee was lush.  And the croissants!!!


We loved that you can see the stars through the glass roof.  All in all a very peaceful and lovely stay.  Only issue was that it was too short!”
