About WoodlarkA white-washed apartment with views of Dunwich Heath and Beach from every window.
Woodlark is a first floor apartment at the Coastguard Cottages on Dunwich Heath. Once the home of the coastguards, this cosy, comfortable apartment enjoys wonderful views across the heathland nature reserve and over the cliffs to the North Sea beyond
If you’re a wildlife watcher you’re in for a treat. The cottage is right next door to RSPB Minsmere’s coastal lagoons and reedbeds. Keep on the lookout for rare and migratory birds such as bitterns, marsh harriers and avocets, as well as otters and red deer. Warm up in the village pub just a mile from the cottage.
Further afield, we have a number of properties on the Suffolk coast, Orford Ness and Sutton Hoo,that are just a 30 minute drive from Woodlark. Flatford Mill, Melford Hall, Lavenham Guildhall and Ickworth House are around an hour away.

Woodlark is not a stand alone single holiday cottage.
The apartments are accessed via a shared stairway.
