Pocket Guide: Saxmundham Dunwich Heath Hotels

Dunwich Heath is located just outside of the village of Dunwich, Suffolk, in An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The heath is one of the few remaining examples of coastal lowland heath and one of Britain's rarest habitats for wildlife. Dunwich Heath is protected and has been managed by the National Trust since 1968. Today the heath is one of Suffolk's most popular attractions - especially for nature lovers!

Go On the Trail of Wildlife from Hotels in Suffolk

Because Dunwich Heath is a rare habitat it's home to all manner of rare species, including red deer, nightjars, the Dartford warbler, and Britain's only venomous snake - the adder. The heath is a great place for you and your family to discover nature, with three trails to explore and lots of family-friendly events running throughout the year - such as bird watching walks and walks with the ranger. Once you're all tuckered out from adventures, you can take some refreshments at the tearoom, which serves homemade cakes. At the end of your day, you can pick up a souvenir from the charming Dunwich Heath gift shop.

Easily Reached from Hotels in Saxmundham

Dunwich Heath is a short distance from the market town of Saxmundham, where there are a variety of top quality hotels. The three-star Westleton Crown, situated in Saxmundham, is perfectly placed for exploring the Suffolk the coast and is just over two miles from the Heath. Dunwich village is best reached by car, with the nearest train station in Darsham over four-miles away.

The heath is just one of Dunwich's popular attractions, and it boasts a museum, a beach and numerous fascinating ruins, such as the remains of Greyfriars Priory. Today, the area is an idyllic spot for a family day out exploring nature, however, in Anglo-Saxon times its role was much more austere, as it was the capital of the Kingdom of the East Angles. Much of this important medieval town has since been lost to the sea, with Dunwich standing at the extreme edge of a fragile coastline. At Dunwich you won't find busy shops and a bustling high street, but you will find a gentle, relaxed pace of life and a friendly welcome. There are tearooms and some small retail outlets, and a large, free car park next to the beach.
