About this property

Nestled just a short walk from the enchanting Suffolk coastline, Dunwich Cottage is a traditional cottage which offers six guests a perfectly charming home-from-home!

Inside, each stunning detail exudes a timeless elegance. This beautiful living area offers two large sofas for a little relaxation, as well as superb French doors framing the rooms on either side, both leading out onto your gorgeous garden. There’s even a second lounge, with an open fireplace, for even cosier moments of calm, so you can socialise or simply curl up in front of the TV or with a good book and be guaranteed comfort. The kitchen, meanwhile, is a delightfully modern space, with plenty of room and all the latest mod cons to make preparing whatever culinary delights you have in mind simply a breeze! And down the hallway is your majestic dining area, with high vaulted ceilings and luxurious seating – plus superb views over the garden!

Upstairs, in the master bedroom you’ll find a luxurious king-size bed set in a cosy space with the same soft whites and creams as the rest of the home, and a fabulous en-suite bathroom with a super walk-in shower. There’s a second enchanting double room with an opulent bed frame and magnificent beams across the ceiling, and finally there’s a twin bedroom. The final two bedrooms share a second full bathroom with a large bathtub with a shower over.

Head out to your wondrous garden where fabulous furniture offers the chance to dine alfresco in the sunshine, and even fire up the barbecue! There’s also a casual seating area for a quiet coffee in the sea air. The beautiful Dunwich beach which stretches for miles into the distance is just a stone’s throw from the house, so you can tuck into a breakfast outdoors before strolling down to the sea!

Tucked in the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Natural Beauty, Dunwich Cottage is ideally placed to enjoy the peaceful, rural countryside of this picturesque county.

Just step out your front door and soak up these unrivalled views across the stunning landscape - meanwhile the dazzling sea is just seconds from the house, ensuring you needn’t worry about planning, directions or driving to enjoy the best bits of this charming county! Some of the finest fish and chips around are in Dunwich, too, so you can relish in the Britishness of fish and chips on the beach!

A 20 minute drive to the north will bring you to Southwold - truly the most quintessentially English seaside town, with a picturesque sandy beach, a promenade lined with beach huts and an unmissable Pier! On a quiet day, head inside this old-fashioned arcade, teeming with bizarre amusements from times gone by for a burst of nostalgia and fun for all ages! Meanwhile, if you fancy a tipple, or even just a fascinating few hours, visit the Adnams Brewery, winner of The Good Pub Guide 2011’s ‘Brewery of the Year’, where brewery tours are on offer throughout the year and you can try some of the huge variety of Adnams beers on offer.

Meanwhile, just 25 minutes to the south, the dazzling town of Aldeburgh, with its highly distinctive architecture, colourful boats and fresh-fish shacks stretching along the beach, is as unique as it is charming. World-renowned for its connection with Benjamin Britten, born in nearby Lowestoft but who spent the last 30 or so years of his life living here, Aldeburgh is believed to have inspired many of the works by the prolific composer.

    A stunning property in a beautiful location. Tastefully and sympathetically modernised inside with ample space and open-plan living. A good-sized space for a large car on the driveway but with parking on road if needed. Good-sized bedrooms (one en suite) upstairs. Kitchen well-equipped with modern appliances. Huge dining table and ample seating plus a large living room with comfy sofas. Fabulous views to rear over Dunwich Marsh, a nature reserve. Large patio area with table and chairs and shared grass lawn to edge of marsh. We spent most of our time on the patio (lovely weather!) and took advantage of the wildlife in the garden and across the marsh. Great views of Marsh Harrier, resident Kestrel and Buzzard plus regular visits to the garden by a Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Barn Owls seen every evening at dusk hunting across the marsh. Wifi good, can't comment on TV reception, didn't use it once, too much going on outside! Dunwich is a very special place with a long and interesting history. The museum is brilliant and worth a visit as are the Ship Inn and Flora Tea Rooms on the beach. Loads of walking from the front door of the house! We barely used the car the whole week. Highly recommended.

    Dunwich Cottage is ideal for a relaxing getaway to enjoy the beautiful Suffolk coast and local nature reserves. Southwold and Aldeburgh nearby are both worth a visit and the Ship Inn just a short walk away served excellent food and drink. A great cottage for family and friends to get together and enjoy a beer or glass of wine while taking in the unspoiled views across the reed marshes.
