The Crown and Castle
On the coast in Orford is the atmospheric Crown and Castle owned and run by Ruth Watson (the original Hotel Inspector) and her husband David. The Crown and Castle dates back to the C16th but the interior is contemporary and the 18 light, stylish bedrooms all have modern en-suite bathrooms.
The story goes that the original Inn was built into the walls of Orford castle, of which only the handsome Norman keep now remains standing. Sitting on the terrace (where you can have a drink on a hot summer’s day), the Castle makes a wonderful sight, particularly when back-lit by the setting sun. Ruth and David Watson have set out to create a new concept in hospitality, offering a genial atmosphere, great food and well-designed, simple bedrooms at modest cost. Click here to find out more.
