there are a lot of beaches in suffolk, some are well known and frequented, others less so. but less than 10 mins drive from our cottage is kessingland beach – a relatively unspoilt beach which reminds me very much of dungeoness, with its pebble dunes and grasses, its definitely worth a morning walk. you will spy fisherman, dog walkers and bird watchers from the adjoining Benacre nature reserve. not far away in Thorpeness you can rent the house in the clouds – originally intended to be a water supply in 1923 Glencairne Stuart Ogilvie with F. Forbes Glennie (architect) & H. G Keep (works manager) brilliantly disguised it as house, and so it looks like a mystical cottage high in the sky. i love suffolk in the winter, much less people, beautiful light and amazing skies.
