The Chestnut Family
The Ship at Dunwich is part of The Chestnut Group’s growing family of country and coastal inns across East Anglia. The Group was founded in 2012 by Philip Turner, who is Suffolk born and bred. He’s always believed that the beauty of the country and coast, the quality and variety of the local produce, the richness of the history, culture and activities, and the warmth of the people make East Anglia a must-visit area of the country.
