The Vllage of Westleton in Suffolk

Westleton Suffolk Holidays

A visitors guide to the Suffolk village of Westleton, a small ancient village located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, under three miles from the Suffolk Heritage Coastline. The village is located close to RSPB Minsmere, that offers families and keen birdwatchers a great day out.

Westleton is a frequent winner of Suffolks Best Kept Village title. The village has a 12th century thatched church and a pub/inn The Westleton Crown, whose food is prepared on the premises, using the finest, freshest ingredients and local suppliers wherever possible.

Lots of good walking to be enjoyed with both coastal and heath land trails with the seaside resorts of  Southwold and Aldeburgh not far away and located just 8 miles from the concert hall at Snape

The RSPB Reserve at Minsmere situated right on the coast has eight hides as well as lots of countryside walks, there is a visitor centre,  shop, and a tea room.  The reserve also hosts many events all centering around the pursuit of birdwatching.

Under two miles away is Dunwich, the place where much of the old town now lies beneath the sea, a result of a storm in 1286. In the small museum you can see how Dunwich used to look all those centuries ago.   Dunwich Heath is one of Suffolk's most important conservation areas with good walks and fine views of the Suffolk Coastline.
