Great place to stay to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy staying in this house with the family, it is well equipped and very comfortable. It's great just to get away from it all with the beach close by and pub a few doors away!

Top marks to the owners as everything you need is there.

Fabulous Stay

  • 4 of 5

Had the most delightful stay - perfect for walking down to the beach. Cycled to Walberswick most days. Well equipped house, would happily return.

Perfect for getting away from everything, playing lots of cards and getting plenty of fresh air. Kids spent a lot of time in the sea with some impressive waves.

Fantastically well stocked kitchen, wouldn't hesitate in recommending it as a holiday stay.

Make sure you visit Mrs T's for fish and chips - get the ferry from Walberswick to Southwold and it is right there. Also had a lovely couple of visits to The Anchor in Walberswick

Owner's Response: Hi Beth - delighted a great time was had by all and thanks for your recommendation. We're really looking forward to get back to Dunwich ourselves in September, it really is a lovely part of the world, although we've never actually done any cycling ourselves (yet). We find there are multiple interesting walks, but as we're going with a slow moving Bassett Hound cycling is not on the agenda. All the best Roger & Zoe

Lovely place for a complete chill out !

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Suffolk previously this was a perfect setting for us. Beach is 2 mins away for early morning dog walks and Dunwich is a great base to visit all the pretty villages and towns.

We took 2 boys aged 11 and 15, ideal as they could have a bedroom each, the 15 year old bagging the snug and bedroom, great for them to escape for their own bit of space. Also loved the kitchen, big kitchen table so all the family can sit and eat or play cards etc.

Can recommend the Ship Inn for good food and local ales, something for everyone on the menu.

Favourite places were Southwold and Woodbridge with a lovely walk along the river.

A lovely place to go for a complete chill out in a lovely setting !!
