About NightjarOnce home to the Coastguards, now a beachside apartment with facilities for disabled visitors.
Nightjar is a ground floor apartment at the Coastguard Cottages on Dunwich Heath. The apartment enjoys wonderful views across the heathland nature reserve and beyond. This open-plan, single level apartment offers a.beachside retreat with the golden sand dunes of Minsmere just below.
Wake up early and go for a stroll, across the colourful heathland and through surrounding woodland. After a hike, treat yourself in the neighbouring tea room and gift shop or visit the pub and cafes in Dunwich village.
Discover more of the local area and visit the cathedral cities of Cambridge and Norwich. Both are just over an hour’s drive from the cottage and offer a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants.
