Coastguard Cottages Tea Room
A warm welcome awaits you in our tea room, relax and warm up by our wood-burning stove, or head upstairs to the lookout and enjoy stunning panoramic views over the sea.
Our small, friendly team prepares freshly made food using ethically sourced ingredients. Enjoy a light lunch of homemade soup, fresh sandwiches or savoury one-pot, or drop in for afternoon tea with freshly baked scones and delicious cakes. Dunwich Heath's scones are legendary! So, don't forget to pick up a Scone Club loyalty card to collect points and claim your free scone.
Your four-legged friends needn't miss out - well behaved dogs are welcome in the tea room.
Every penny you spend with us helps to look after Dunwich's rare and precious heathland – thank you for your support.
The Coastguard Cottages Tea Room is open on Saturdays and Sundays only during the winter months. Over the Christmas period, we are closed from 18th – 25th December, reopening on Boxing Day until New Year’s Day.

Please note, the weather here on top of Dunwich cliffs is sometimes challenging! So, occasionally the tea room may close early due to bad weather.
