Cosy, comfortable and welcoming cottage - great facilities and wonderful rural location right by the beach and the marshes and almost next door to a wonderful pub that does great food! Comfy beds and perfect for a week away with friends and our dog. Cannot rate this cottage highly enough and Roger's communication was excellent and so helpful. Can't wait to go back!!!

Just an all round lovely cottage in a great location. Two minute walk to beach, ten second stroll to pub and about twenty minutes drive to both Southwold and Aldeburgh.

Roger was an excellent host. He was very accommodating regarding our dates and answered all queries promptly. We loved his house and it was perfectly located to explore the Suffolk coastline.

Hello - We bought the Old Post Office, Dunwich in 2010.

We really love the area, its a complete change of pace, so relaxing to stay and unwind, plenty of great walks for the dog. Lots of areas of interest with plenty of things to do all within a short drive, but with the benefit of being able to get back to the peaceful tranquility of Dunwich afterwards.

And only just over 2 hours drive from London.

Roger & Zoe Bulkeley
