Coastguard Cottages Tea Room

Dunwich Heath 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.

It's Brunch Time!

Whether you're planning a long walk on the beach or you're just back from an early bird stroll on the heath, why not treat yourself to a hearty brunch available on the second weekend of each month? You can enjoy a tasty brunch of 2 bacon rashers, 2 sausages, 2 fried eggs, tomato, baked beans, 2 rounds of toast and a tea or filter coffee for £9.95. This set brunch is available on selected dates only, so please check before you come along!

Every penny you spend with us helps to look after Dunwich's rare and precious heathland – thank you for your support.
