Like many Suffolk coastal towns and villages, Orford was of some importance as a port and fishing village in the Middle Ages. It still has a fine mediaeval castle, built to dominate the River Ore.

The main geographical feature is Orford Ness, a long, wide spit at the mouth of the Ore. Orford Ness has variously been used as an airstrip testing facility and nature sanctuary over the years. It is reached by ferry from Orford's quay.

In the early 1970s Orford Ness was the site of a very powerful radar station as part of the Cold War defences against low flying attacking aircraft.

Orford attracts many tourists - As well as the Castle, Orford's attractions include river cruises, a number of pubs and hotels, a traditional post office which sells fresh bread, a smokehouse, and two restaurants; the Butley-Orford Oysterage and the Crown and Castle Hotel.

Orford Cottages
Orford is still a small unspoilt village; a great place for walking, bird watching, sailing, eating and drinking or just relaxing. Orford cottages offers a selection of cottages in Orford. All our cottages are independently assessed and star rated every year by VisitBritain, the national tourism authority.

The Old Butcher's Shop Bed and Breakfast
The Old Butcher''''s Shop bed and breakfast in Orford There are three bed and breakfast rooms, which are all comfortably furnished. There is a small courtyard behind the house where guests can have breakfast outside in the summer and a large garden with fine views of the church. There is free parking in the market square almost opposite the house.

The Crown and Castle Hotel
The Crown and Castle has 18 light, stylish bedrooms all with modern en-suite bathrooms. Although extremely quietly positioned, it is not a country house hotel in the hackneyed, ruched-curtain, prohibitively expensive sense. Neither is it efficient but soulless, in the way modern, city-centre hotels can be.
