  • "The perfect seaside holiday home."

    Exactly as described on the website. Warm, comfortable and well equipped. Could not have asked for any better. Many thanks :)

  • "We loved the location of the holiday home."

    To be able to walk out of the garden gate on to the dunes and the beach was ideal for us with two small children and a dog. Having three bathrooms and a downstairs loo was very convenient. The furniture was comfortable and practical and we were impressed with the number of games to play. The kitchen was well equipped and we even managed to bake a birthday cake. The bar area was great and so was the general decor.

    Thank you for choosing The Dunes, so please to hear you had a great time and look forward to welcoming you again next year! Property Owner

  • "Staying in the Dunes was perfection."

    The cottage was beautifully appointed with attention to detail in every area, it gave our senses a zing and our bodies a cuddle. The position is wonderful in all weathers, for everyone…big, small & hairy. We have just rebooked for next year!

    Glad to hear The Dunes ticked all your boxes and look forward to welcoming you again next year. Thank you for your feedback Property Owner

  • "Beautifully decorated and very clean."

    Wonderful position and very nice garden. The only drawback that Bedroom 3 upstairs was very hot (a fan would improve this), Despite this, we have just booked The Dunes again for next year!

  • "Fabulous accommodation in a great location for the beach and for enjoying all that Southwold and Walberswick offer."

    We enjoyed our 4 nights in March and looking forward to returning for longer in the summer. Parking will be easier when the dropped curb is sorted but this is really a minor niggle ;)

  • "The property has been skilfully up dated and very nicely furnished internally , however, had we been a party of 8 we would have found 2 of the claimed 4 double bedrooms far to small to be comfortable ."

    That apart, internally it was 1st class . Externally it is a disappointment . It is at odds with all the effort that has been made inside . It's situation and general presentation is poor .

    Thank you for booking the Dunes, I do hope you enjoyed your stay in Southwold. Sorry to hear the bedrooms were not to your requirements, it hasn't been a problem so far. I totally agree with your comments regarding the exterior of the house. Southwold is in a conservation area and therefore any renovations to the exterior of all properties require planning consent. I am pleased to say that consent has now been granted for a full width dropped kerb and driveway, a side porch, new windows and doors and alterations to the garden and patio. As the house is in huge demand, the problem now is actually having the time to carry out the work?! However, I am looking to complete all of these by the end of the year, in order to bring the standard of the outside to the same as in inside. Thank you for your feedback. All the best. Property Owner

    House is excellent, extremely clean and very well maintained. Excellent situated with easy access to the town and all the lovely walks that the north coast of Suffolk provides. Highly recommend it. Phil

    Thank you for your feedback, so pleased to welcome you to The Dunes once again! Glad to hear you had another great stay at the house and in Southwold! All the best Property Owner

Be welcomed to park off road by this charming property, finding yourself in a sitting room with contemporary blue painted feature walls complementing a range of tasteful furniture and grey sofas, and here you can curl up with a good book and plan the day ahead of you.

A spectacular kitchen/diner invites you in with a neon sign, fantastic dining table and great kitchen space with black and white décor, filled with all of the essential amenities, making cooking up a storm a must, and double doors between the sitting room and kitchen/diner make this an excellent social hub for all guests to enjoy.

On the ground-floor the first of the four bedrooms can be found, a super-king-size zip-link that can be set up as a twin on request, with an impressive feature window and en-suite.

Ascend to the first floor and there are three more bedrooms, a super-king zip-link and a king-size with storage and large windows, as well as access to the family bathroom, and finally an incredible super-king four poster bed with a balcony and en-suite.

The garden of this property is located right on the dunes, with furniture and a barbecue so that you can enjoy alfresco dining with a view to the ocean.

Southwold is a fantastic location for all guests to enjoy, and the adventure begins quite literally right on your doorstep, with a sandy beach ideal for walking with your four-legged companion, watersports or a picnic with a view.

For independent shops and a great range of eateries, head over to the high street where you can enjoy a hot meal and a glass of your favourite beverage in the sunshine before checking out the historic lighthouse and well-known Southwold Pier.

For a selection of scenic walks, get your wellies on and head over to RSPB Minsmere or Dunwich forest to see what wildlife you can find.
