  • "Beautiful property, spotlessly clean with very well equipped kitchen."

    Comfortable beds. Thorpeness is a really interesting place, and we enjoyed days out at Southwold, Aldeborough, Sutton Hoo, Dunwich, and the Maltings at Snape is well worth a visit. Really can't think of anything negative to say!

    Thank-you so much for your kind review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we'll see you again at 4 The Dunes. Property Owner

  • "Perfect location and really spacious house."

    Felt much bigger than the pics appeared, especially upstairs, bedrooms and bathrooms were really spacious. Nicely furnished and modern fittings made for a comfortable and enjoyable break! Would definitely recommend.

The property

Enjoying a superb setting in the seaside town of Thorpeness, 4 The Dunes offers spacious accommodation ideal for family gatherings or a get-together of family and friends.

The property boasts captivating views over the iconic Thorpeness Meare as well as having far-reaching views to the sea.

The gardens here are a particular feature and are the ideal spot to pull up a chair and soak up the views while enjoying alfresco drinking and dining time.

This is what holidays are made of.

The inside is equally as impressive with stylish and well-presented interiors making guests feel welcome as soon as they walk through the door.

The sitting room is particularly inviting with ample seating arranged around a gorgeously warming woodburning stove and there is an additional chill-out space in the form of a snug, offering a great alternative area for relaxing.

The kitchen is comprehensively fitted and the breakfast bar is the perfect place for guests to pour themselves a tipple, pull up a chair and keep the designated chef company.

Meals can be served at the elegant dining table or you can throw open the feature bi-folding doors and step onto the sunny decking area and eat outside.

All that fresh air will no doubt have tired everyone out so guests can choose from a king-size, a double and two twin bedrooms; all are beautifully finished and offer a calming holiday sanctuary.

Whether you like a quick, refreshing shower in the morning or a long, relaxing soak in the bath in the evening, everyone is catered for at 4 The Dunes.

The property is ideally positioned overlooking the Meare with the beach and town of Thorpeness just a few minutes’ walk.

Visit towns nearby such as Aldeburgh, Southwold and Woodbridge or enjoy a day out at attractions such as Snape Maltings, Framlingham Castle, Easton Farm Park and Africa Alive Zoological Reserve.

Enjoy some fantastic walks, cycle rides and hikes anywhere within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you want a day at the beach then why not pack a picnic and head to Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Walberswick and Kessingland?

4 The Dunes is the perfect destination for a family holiday.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
