The Dune House

The Dune House is next available for dates in 2018, see here.

The Dune House lies just to the south of the picturesque village of Thorpeness in Suffolk, on an idyllic spot on the very edge of the sea, nestled among rolling dunes. You can walk out from the living room directly onto the beach and enjoy extraordinary panoramic views over the sea from the terraces, bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper floor.

Living Architecture invited one of Norway’s most renowned practices, Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects, to create a house for us on this archetypally English seaside site. JVA, as they are known, made their name building a series of accomplished houses in Oslo and its outskirts and intimately understood the need to balance the advantages of modernity with the traditional virtues of warmth and comfort. 

The Dune House sleeps 9 people. See more photos and find out more about the accommodation and what's included.  Click here for availability for holidays in 2017 and 2018.
