Dunwich is known as the lost city of England. Dating back to Anglo-Saxon times, it once stood proud as the capital of the Kingdom of the Eastern Angles, at its mightiest matching 14th century London for size. It was a seat of power for the Anglo-Saxon bishops for centuries, an international port, and the Domesday book of 1086 puts the population at over 3000 as opposed to a population of eighty now.
Dunwich Museum tells the amazing story of a city lost to the sea..
'The Ferns' is very spacious, some say like the 'tardis'. Beautifully furnished and positioned in this lovely village. Two sitting rooms, a snug, three woodburners, a large dining room with Aga and a separate kitchen.
There are numerous original features, throughout including the pamment floor. We have taken great pride in the house and have made it a place where we want to spend time with our friends. We have not furnished it with 'rentals' or small children in mind but as a place for us and everyone to enjoy and hopefully keep enjoying over the coming years.
Children are welcome, however please bear in mind that their are numerous antiques in the house.
