Superb position easy walk to beach and pub. Very private. Lots of space for grandchildren and family dogs. Secure garden.Mrs Chris Lea - 9th November 2019
The Coach House is an excellent family property , close to beach and a super local pub which serves top quality food. Wonderful walks from the house and a must visit is Dunwich Heath nearbyMrs Pat Brooks - 27th September 2019
A large crow tapping on the window alerted us to the fact that he was eating away at the putty around the glass! This could cause problems in the future. We love this house and hope to come again. Our autistic daughter is a very keen birdwatcher, and adores Minsmere. I could just admire the view from the conservatory all day.Mrs Angela Kenyon - 7th May 2019
