About Stonechat

A bird watcher’s haven, this first floor apartment overlooks Dunwich Heath nature reserve.

Stonechat is a first floor apartment at the Coastguard Cottages on Dunwich Heath.
The apartment benefits from stunning views over the cliffs and beyond to the North Sea. The cosy holiday home offers the perfect getaway for two, with a beautifully restored open plan living, dining and sleeping area. .

If you’re a keen birdwatcher you’ll be spoilt for choice with nightjars, woodlarks and warblers, just some of the rare species common in the area. Make the most of Stonechat’s countryside location and explore the heather strewn heath on foot. 

Further afield, explore the pretty seaside town of Southwold, just a short drive away from the holiday home. The town boasts numerous independent shops and restaurants as well as the famous Adnam’s Brewery and the lighthouse.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
