Dunwich Holiday Cottages

Dunwich is one of Suffolk’s best hidden gems. Located on the Suffolk coast, about midway between Southwold and Walberswick, and Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, Dunwich is a truly beautiful place with a very interesting past. Our holiday cottages in Dunwich offer some of the best views of the Suffolk coast and heaths and combine beautiful original features with modern living, often granting luxury home status to many of our cottages in the area. Dunwich, with its nature reserve and beach, is also the perfect spot for a dog-friendly holiday and many will be pleased to know that we have pet-friendly self-catering accommodation in the area so you can bring your four-legged friend along for the adventure.

Things to Do in Dunwich

Now a small coastal village, many will be surprised that Dunwich was once the capital of a Saxon Kingdom and had a population one-sixth the size of London. Dunwich is often called the ‘Lost City of England’ because flooding led to its almost complete demise and tragically reduced its population to just 100 people, leaving behind only the small village that stands today. The community-run Dunwich Museum has lots more information on Dunwich’s mysterious past and is open every day in peak holiday season between April and October and on selected weekends throughout the rest of the year.

Dunwich Museum have also commissioned the village’s history walk, which guides you through some of the village’s most significant locations. These include the Greyfriar’s Friary, the Roman Road and the Leper Chapel. All locations are marked by a silver plaque and many visitors love to try and visit them all, either in one go, or spread out across the trip.

However, Dunwich’s best spot has to be its beach. Backed up by the breathtaking Dunwich Heath, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this remote bay has a truly magical feel to it. The area is abuzz with wildlife, from tiny little bees, to mighty deer. As the site is owned by the National Trust, there are lots of amazing family-friendly events going on throughout the year. We particularly recommend the kid’s trails on their website. Print one out for your little ones to have some fun whilst you take in the scenes of blossoming purple heather and the buzz of insects and wildlife.

If you fancy a break from self-catering while staying in one of our Dunwich cottages, then there are plenty of great places to grab food and drink in the village. There are two tearooms in the village, Dingle Hall Tearooms and Flora Tea Rooms and the local pub, The Ship Inn at Dunwich has an amazing beer garden and serves tasty food daily.

With so much to offer, in such a beautiful setting, why not make Dunwich your next Suffolk holiday destination with us?
