Dunwich, located approximately 2.5 miles away, is an unspoilt coastal village with a mainly shingle beach. The Ship Inn serves good meals as does the Beach Café, which is renowned for its delicious fish and chips – best enjoyed on the beach! In the other direction, the exceptionally popular Two Magpies sourdough bakery is only 1.5 miles away from the cottage.
Walberswick, 4.5 miles away, is famous for crabbing, painting, and for its long sandy beach and shallow waters.

Dunwich adjoins Dingle Marshes Nature Reserve, and Dunwich Heath (the cliff top is National Trust owned). RSPB Minsmere is next door. Southwold and Aldeburgh are in close proximity, the former being approximately 7.5 and the latter 11 miles away. Trains and buses can be found four miles away at Darsham.

The holiday cottage ( house ) was set in lovely countryside .The cottage was so lovely everything was as I wanted , the welcome pack was a nice touch. Everything in the cottage was of very good quality from the range to the wood burner , logs included .

Mr T,

Spent the week over Christmas with my family at Stone cottage. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed, everything was a very high specification. Absolutely loved the Christmas tree and the welcome pack with some lovely local produce. Highly recommend the bakery and also the farm shop nearby. Already looking up a summer break!

Ms M,

Very nice family holiday home.Very quite surroundings.

Mrs C,

Lovely, clean and comfortable property in a great location for exploring the coast between Southwold and Aldeburgh. Inland activities including kayaking also close by. Lovely hamper on arrival from the owners, who also recommended great places to eat nearby. Would highly recommend.

Miss S,

Ideal location for exploring the North Suffolk coasts and heaths. The cottage is in a quiet lane with walks from the front door to heath and forest. It's just a short drive to Dunwich and Minsmere. The cottage itself is well equipped with lovely stonework and woodwork. We rebooked for next year.

Mr P,

Location great, equipment new and excellent but house freezing on arrival, rain leaked into lounge, door frames very low and hard to turn car round on a dangerous corner because too many pebbles put onto parking surface. Stairs too steep for young children

Mr W,
