Where you’ll be

Dunwich, England, United Kingdom

Ship House is at the very centre of Dunwich, yet quiet and private, the house has only the small garden at the front but immediate access to the
best of the heritage coast. The area is renowned for wildlife with many rare species visible from the house. BBC Springwatch team have stayed at the house three times! The famous RSPB reserve at Minsmere is only a mile away. The pub next door offers the finest local food and drinks. In Summer we often swim in the sea and walk back to shower at home.
Ship House has a loyal community of regular guests who return to enjoy its unique location and charm.

Look up Julian Perry Artist and you will see my work.
