Idyllic location within half a mile of Dunwich village, just 200 yards from a low cliff-top path above an uncrowded shingle beach.

Just 200 yards from a low cliff-top path above an uncrowded shingle beach, this pretty and very comfortable 19th-century cottage enjoys an idyllic location within half a mile of Dunwich village and its excellent inn. Set in its own peaceful and sunny lawned garden and four acres of private, open ground and woodland, it benefits from a private tennis court on site. It is surrounded by more woodland at the end of a leafy lane. Outstanding walking and riding can be enjoyed in Dunwich Forest and on Dunwich Heath (NT). A walk along the Suffolk Coast Path, or a short drive, leads to Walberswick and Southwold. RSPB reserve at Minsmere 1½ miles. Shops 2 miles.

Well-equipped kitchen/dining area. Cosy living room with open fireplace. Two double bedrooms, one with double doors to gardens. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Laundry room with toilet across courtyard.

    We loved the cottage which was so well equipped in the kitchen, - (just make sure you take things like salt/cooking oil, etc as nothing supplied in that way, but that wasn't a big deal). We are used to a power shower so the one in the bathroom wasn't as good but other than that we found the cottage excellent. The grounds are fantastic and the tennis court is superb. The cottage was lovely and warm with no lack of hot water. We had a lovely week there and would certainly return. Wonderful location in the woods.

    We have stayed at The Cottage a dozen or more times now. It is a lovely cottage in a delightful location and has been modernised sympathetically. However there are a few areas where attention or improvement could be made: 1 cleanliness - some areas (eg the area behind the kitchen bin, bathroom skirtings) were pretty grubby and I do not think it was really for us as guests to remedy these evidently longstanding gaps in cleaning 2 kitchen - a full size freezerwould be a welcome addition 3 access to the bath/shower. (I think I have pointed this out before). The bath is pretty high which makes it quite difficult to get into and (especially) out of the shower. Anyone with the slightest physical disability wouuld find it very difficult. The addition of a hand rail would address this. 4 bedding change. We stayed a fortnight and were a little surprised and disappointed not to be offered a change of bedding over the middle weekend

    We had a wonderful time staying here in October half term. The cottage is very well equipped and the only reason I scored 9 instead of 10 is because towels weren't provided. Lots of lovely walks and very close to the beach. The highlight of the week was several deer running through the garden and jumping straight over the front fence! Would recommend to others.

    We very much enjoyed our week's stay over New Year. The location is excellent, being quiet and semi-rural with footpaths and bridleways right outside the front door. The local pub is a short walk away, though you'll need a good torch at night as the shortest route is along footpaths. The kitchen-diner is large and well equipped. The massive table would seat 10 or even 12 if you wanted. The lounge isn't huge, however, and one might find the furniture a bit cosy with more adults (we were two couples only). The TV was rather small (it is visible in one of the photos), although the wi-fi is very fast so we were able to stream TV shows perfectly. The open fire was fantastic, and we found wood/kindling available in many stores nearby. The garage on the A12 near Darsham sells logs, which was useful as we arrived on a Sunday. We saw a place in Yoxford that delivers so you could even have logs or coal waiting for you if you were organised. The heating is very good too, and even in the middle of winter we had no problem at all getting all the rooms to the right temperature day or night. The large boiler is in the kitchen, and it can be noisy. The bathroom looks newly decorated and was spotlessly clean. The shower is an electric one, so lacked the power of ours at home, but it was more than good enough for a week, and we never lacked hot water at any time. Bedrooms aren't massive, but they're comfortable and clean. There were no ceiling lights in the bedrooms, so the lighting is a bit low key. The outhouse is useful, allowing you to do washing/drying without the noise disturbing you, and the tiled floor means it's great for storing muddy footwear or bikes. There's a second toilet out there too, which is handy to have when the bathroom is busy, even if it's slightly unpleasant going outside in your pyjamas first thing in the morning. This didn't happen too often as there were only 4 of us, but if you are 6 staying then it's something to consider. I should mention there's a heater in the outhouse if you want, but we switched it off all week as we were in there so rarely. There was parking space for our two small cars easily, including enough space to turn around so we didn't have to back out the narrow entranceway. Turning around with more cars might be more tricky. Overall, this is a lovely cottage in a fantastic location, with loads to see in and around Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh. We highly recommend the fish restaurant in Orford if you get a chance to visit.
