Getting there


The Dune House is located on the southern edge of the village of Thorpeness, on the Suffolk coast, a protected area designated as being one of exceptional natural beauty.

Thorpeness was developed as a small seaside resort in the early 20th century, aiming to offer its visitors an escape from the pressures of modern industrial life. It has a picturesque lake or ‘mere’ at its center, where one can rent boats and feed swans, a handful of excellent pubs, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a golf course and a succession of holiday homes built in Jacobean and Tudor styles.


  • Nearest train station is Saxmundham (approx. 20 min drive to Thorpeness)
