From the Owner

My partner Sally, also an artist and I have styled the house after Kettle’s Yard Cambridge. The house is furnished with examples of our work and a few historic images of Dunwich. However the location is perhaps the best feature of Ship House. being just two minutes from the beach. In the winter walking by the surf is a joy knowing that there is a warm fire at home. In the Summer the fantastic pub garden next door (including famous ancient fig tree) is the perfect place to enjoy pre dinner drinks.
