one of our friends Jac had not yet seen our cottage, so we did a day trip with some girlfriends to view the house, take in a wonderful lunch at darsham nurseries and believe it or not, a dip in the north english sea – well, 2 of our crazy girlfriends dipped in, and 2 watched in awe and admiration shivering at the very thought….. by the way, you can eat dinner some fridays and saturdays in the winter at darsham nurseries – i am sure it will be delicious.
i also recently made it to dunwich – a small sleepy village famous for its birdwatching. its hard to believe that it was once the unofficial capital of east anglia and the main port for trading of wool timber and fish. there is apparently a 3 mile coastal walk to walberswick which is worth doing. the ship at dunwich looks like a popular place to have sunday lunch, but you must reserve. stop off at dunwich forest and take a picnic and enjoy the natural beauty.
we have only had the cottage around 8 months, but we have explored the coastline on each of our short visits, and each time are pleasantly surprised at how naturally beautiful it is. can’t wait for spring and hopefully warmer seas when maybe i shall attempt a swim in the sea too. the cottage (lime blossom cottage) is now available to rent either through my website or through heritage hideaways.
