  • Stylish, enchanting holiday let situated in the pretty village of Dunwich
  • Stunning views of surrounding marshland with superb outside space to enjoy
  • Set in an idyllic setting, close to nature reserves and the beach

Property code: OC-SLH

This fabulous property, situated in the charming coastal village of Dunwich just 350 metres from the beach, is the perfect bolthole for anyone looking to enjoy a bit of luxury on their seaside holiday. Sleeping six across three beautifully-decorated bedrooms, this property is ideal for families or groups of friends to get together to explore the stunning Suffolk coast. Spend sunny evenings out in the garden, sizzling up a BBQ and watching the children play on the lawn.

The holiday home has a gorgeous traditional brick exterior but a contemporary style inside that everyone will fall in love with. The open-plan living area is flooded with light thanks to large patio doors that look out onto the marshes; sit on the sofa here in the morning and take in the views. You can still get cosy though – snuggle up in front of the TV and ornamental fireplace in the lounge and watch your favourite film. Upstairs, three fantastic bedrooms await; the king-size room is the one to nab with its superb glass doors that you can throw open and stand at the Juliet balcony. Each room has its own unique style but all promote a good night’s sleep with calming pastel and grey tones.

Make sure you visit Dunwich Heath (2 miles) and RSPB Minsmere (4.5 miles) where you’re bound to spot birds such as the Dartford warbler and the woodlark. Popular Southwold (9 miles) is a must-visit; take an invigorating speed boat trip on the Coastal Voyager or try the bizarre amusements at the Under the Pier Show. Hire canoes, kayaks or paddleboards from Iken Canoe (16 miles), or stroll the grounds of Framlingham Castle (16 miles) if you prefer being on dry land. And don’t forget Africa Alive Zoological Reserve (13.5 miles) that the kids will love.

This cottage is a birdwatcher's paradise. More than 50 species identified, mostly by sight and some by sound and even Cetti's warbler visible in the garden on occasion. There's no need to travel to watch wildlife, just sit back, relax, and focus your scope!

We loved the location of the School House. It was close to the coast with many walks direct from the door and plenty of lovely Suffolk towns within 20 miles drive. The house itself was clean and comfortable with amazing views from the rear over a nature reserve. We had an absolutely amazing holiday here.

The School House in Dunwich looked exactly as it does in the pictures on the website. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the laundry facilities were great. For our group of 5 adults, having 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms worked really well. It was exceptional value for money. Dunwich is located in an area of the Suffolk coast which is convenieRead morent for visiting our relatives, so the location also worked well for us. It was an easy walk to the beach, although the weather was not ideal for that. The location is also great for walking and bird-watching, and there are a lot of nearby seaside towns to visit within an hours drive. The tea room at the end of the street was really nice, and we had a great Sunday lunch at the Ship Inn, where they were able to accommodate our family gathering in a private room. Overall, we highly recommend the School House. Hide

We have visited Suffolk and stayed in many different properties . The School House at Dunwich has to be one of the very best cottages we have holidayed in. Very well furnished and equipped with wonderful views, particularly if you enjoy bird watching. The location was convenient with both Dunwich Heath and Minsmere very near and Southwold and AldebRead moreurgh a short drive away. We really enjoyed our stay there. Hide
