  • "Fantastic property for a group of friends or a large family to stay in."

    Kitchen is so well-equipped for cooking. Bedrooms and beds are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Less than 2 minute walk to the beach and to Thorpeness Meare. It was perfect for our needs and we had a great weekend. Tips: bring shower gel etc with you and extra toilet rolls, but towels and bed linen are provided.

  • "We had a great holiday - it was a lovely home in the centre of the village."

    Easy to walk to the beach - 1 minute away, the boating lake (2 minutes a way) the cafe (2 minutes away) and the hotel (which did excellent food) 10 minutes maximum walk. The house was lovely and comfortable. We don't normally return as there is so much to explore in the UK but all of the family agreed we would visit again. Well worth coming to.

  • "A spacious home from home with amazing decor, and perfectly curated artwork and curios."

    Wonderful to look out on views of the sea, just a minutes walk away. Voted by our 3 generational family as the best house we’ve stayed in for our Easter family break.

The contemporary kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to rustle up delicious food for everyone and guests can choose from informal dining at a bistro table in the kitchen or more formal meals in the dining room.

Upstairs the five bedrooms are all charmingly presented and the master bedroom benefits from a balcony with sea views.

Imagine waking up and stepping out onto the balcony in the morning and soaking up the Suffolk ambience.

Outside there are benches and a dining table and chairs helping to entice guests to enjoy time alfresco.

The location of 2 The Dunes is simply sublime with the Meare directly in front of the property and Thorpeness itself within a short walk.

Nearby towns worth a visit include Southwold, Aldeburgh and Orford with attractions such as Snape Maltings, Framlingham Castle, Easton Farm Park and Africa Alive Zoological Reserve definitely justifying a scenic car drive.

Enjoy some fantastic walks and hikes anywhere within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and don’t forget to take your camera for some great photos!
