School House, nestled in the village of the historic Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast, has been completely transformed with interiors of a luxurious essence. The open plan area which includes the sitting, kitchen and dining areas is a great sociable space decorated in calming green and grey tones. Large French doors open out onto the lovely rear garden which has incredible views of the surrounding marshes and beyond. There is also a separate sitting room for the ultimate relaxation in front of the television. The kitchen comes fully equipped with quality appliances, many of which are Neff branded. Upstairs three bedrooms provide guests with a comfortable haven in which to retire to. The master bedroom is a real treat with its large vaulted window which allows those wonderful countryside views in. The double bedroom with character eaves has a low-level Velux window for allowing plenty of natural light. There is also a twin bedded room decorating in calming white and grey colours. School House comes with three bathrooms for the three bedrooms, with the master having an En-Suite. Shop: 2 miles Pub: 150 yards.

This property certainly has the WOW factor. Fabulous location for beach, walks, beach, pub and generally chilling out. We would visit again.

Mrs N,

Lovely, well-equipped and spacious cottage with magnificent views over the coastal marshland. Comfortable beds and sofas. Located a couple of hundred yards from the sea. The owners, were very helpful and responded rapidly to fix an issue we experienced with the heating. The highlight of the week for us was watching red dear and muntjacs grazing on the marshes, marsh harriers hunting above and great spotted woodpeckers, long-tailed tits and many other birds enjoying the trees and feeders in the garden. Friday Street Farm Shop, on the Aldeburgh road south of Saxmundham, provided all our provisions from local, high-quality sources. Visits to the charming towns of Framlingham, Southwold and Woodbridge were easy and pleasant. Minsmere RSPB reserve was a joy. A memorable week indeed.

Mr T,

A super, well located, comfortable house in a smashing location. Lovely and quiet, off road car parking, plenty of space internally, genuinely rustic and quaint with excellent access to walking routes and the great outdoors.

Mr W,

Amazing property well looked after and well equipped probably the best we have stayed at the owners had thought of everything and would love to come back.

Mrs R,

Very comfortable 'home from home', a quiet location in a lovely coastal area with Dunwich as the centre. There is a pleasant pub, good beach cafe, lovely walks, and nearby attractions. The house is warm and welcoming with excellent facilities, and is good for both couples or families, with lovely views over the adjoining marshlands.

Mr K,
