Coastguard Cottages Tea Room

Dunwich Heath tea room hot chocolate and chocolate scones

A warm welcome awaits you in our tea room, relax and enjoy a drink outdoors in our seating area, 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 soup or fresh sandwiches, or drop in for afternoon tea with freshly baked scones and delicious cakes. Why not try our ‘scone of the month’? Each month we create a new flavour of scone which you can recreate at home by picking up a free recipe sheet!

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
