Dunwich is even closer, a ten minute drive by car, or peaceful forty minute walk across the heath and bird watchers will find Minsmere only a ten minute drive away. Snape Maltings, should you want to balance seaside walks and bird-watching, with music and art, is also only a twenty minutes away by car.

A stable door at the entrance leads into the garden room – a stunning place to enjoy a quick lunch with friends, or a leisurely evening feast. In all seasons, the bi-folding doors to the garden and large Velux windows bring the outside in, so you can really make the most of the famous Suffolk light. The sitting room is also a fabulous area to relax in with a focal point woodburner to take the chill off cooler days and nights. In addition to a TV with access to Netflix and Amazon prime. Off the sitting room is a handy study area with two additional chairs, books and DVDs, where you can opt to retreat for some peace and quiet, or throw open the doors to enhance the space on offer.

The modern kitchen has plenty of worktop space with white gloss units and a pantry for storage. French doors also lead from this room to the garden ensuring effortless al-fresco dining on sunny summer days.

Beautiful, light-filled house with everything we needed for a relaxing week with our toddler on the Suffolk Coast. The garden was a joy to explore, full of colour and butterflies. Westleton village had everything we could need; village shop, two pubs that both serve food and a great playground close to the house. Location was a great base to explore the whole area.

Ms S,

The living space at the Blue House is very well designed and on the whole very comfortable. The setting (opposite the heath and within 5 minutes brisk walk of the village centre) is lovely and ideal for visits to Minsmere, Walberswick, Southwold, Snape and Aldeburgh.

Mrs C,

A comfortable home from home property - I would not recommend for senior citizens staying without family help as it is necessary to park your car approx 65 yards from property with no possibility of parking any nearer to offload luggage, provisions etc. Quite a drawback making several journeys to and from car with heavy bags, provisions for catering etc.

Mrs B,

The Blue House was everything were were expecting and hoped for - clean, airy, bright, comfortable, extremely well equipped. The woodland straight across the road was perfect for our dog. Westleton is ideally situated for exploring the Suffolk coast and countryside and is, itself, a very pretty village with two excellent, friendly pubs. Would highly recommend.

Mr B,

We stayed here with our two children and young dog. We found it very spacious and particularly loved the views across the heath. We walked our dog in the forest everyday and the kids loved the big play park which was only 2 minutes walk away. We also ate in the White Horse on several nights which was very nice.

Mrs B,
