The Ship at Dunwich - Once a haunt of smugglers, you will now find a traditional coastal inn with: real ales, real food and real fires, comfortable, traditionally furnished bedrooms, some with views over the marshes to the sea, an enormous garden and a beach that really is just a short stroll away. In the famous village of Dunwich and surrounded by nature reserves, heathland and beach, The Ship is a perfect base from which to explore this wild and wonderful coastline, enjoy some of the best fish and chips on the Suffolk coast or simply indulge in a pint or two of Adnams.

Best British Hotels for Horse Riding by Adrian Mourby

"Dunwich was once one of the largest port towns in England. In the fourteenth century it was about the same size as London, but so much of it has succumbed to coastal erosion - eight Dunwich churches disappeared into the North Sea – that now it’s a tiny village consisting of not much than a beach, a few houses and the Ship Inn. The Ship is lovely, a traditional coastal inn with what it proudly proclaims are “real ales, real food and real fires”. Views from the bedrooms are of the sea, the local nature reserves and heathland. Located between Southwold, Westleton and Aldeburgh, the Ship is a perfect base from which to explore the Suffolk coastline. Seven and a half miles inland from the Ship stands North Manor Equestrian Centre which offers good opportunities for hacking, although in such an intensively farmed landscape there is a certain amount of road work along the way. Fortunately several local farmers are signed up to the stewardship scheme so it is possible to use the field perimeters too. Hacking is usually for three guests in the company of two riders from North Manor. For those who just want an introduction to horsemanship, lessons take place at North Manor’s own ménage and on Wenhaston Common."
