THE PERFECT WAY TO MELT YOUR TROUBLES AWAY


Last weekend I had a beautiful stay in a beautiful annexe.

The Wood Store is a modern annexe, which resides next to Keep Cottage in the quaint village of Orford, Suffolk.

This little modern gem comes fully equipped with a modern, stylish kitchen, Art Deco inspired designs, a walk in shower and double bed with the softest cotton pillows that you could just sink into.

The open plan kitchen living room has the comfiest sofa you’ve sat on, with a chaise lounge type chair for those who aren’t up for sharing, Sky, Netflix, and the magnifying Sonos sound system. I think this is what got me. I’d heard great things about Sonos - YOU CONTROL THE MUSIC WITH YOUR PHONE AND IT’S IN EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE!

Anyway, Sonos aside (great touch by the way) it was the perfect weekend to just melt our troubles away. In all honesty, we didn’t find much to do in Orford, but I think that was the beauty of it. A do-nothing holiday. We walked to the cutest local bakery, and I got to relive my childhood memory of chocolate filled doughnuts. We had a look at Orford Castle which gives you a view of the countryside for miles. And in the evening we sat and drank the complimentary champagne, as we watched girly films and worried about absolutely nothing.

Each morning we slept in a little too long, in the crisp white cotton sheets with blacked out windows, Sonos music to our ears and frothy Costa coffee from the house coffee machine waking us up. A bright, light, perfect kind of wake up call as you walk into the open plan space filled with light and the ora of positivity. A crisp, overhead shower to awaken the last of your senses, with vegan shampoos and soaps to top this modern shack off.

Breakfast is effortlessly made on the easy to clean hob, scrambled eggs with spinach and mushroom on our first morning and pancakes topped with yoghurt and fruit on our second

A delightful stay at the Wood Store, Orford. This is the perfect little getaway for two, and not too far from London.

I was offered a complimentary stay at the Wood Store but this does not effect my opinions, all are honest and true to my experience.
