If you’re looking for a coastal town to discover you’re spoilt for choice. Both Southwold and Aldeburgh are only a twenty minute drive away. 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, there is a projector and screen with HDMI cable and an Apple adaptor should you wish to connect your own laptop to a larger screen. 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.
The Blue House has two bedrooms on the first floor, one super king size and one king size both are particularly spacious and cosy for a restful night’s sleep. The bathroom, also on the first floor, has the added benefit of a large shower cubicle and separate bath tub with hand-held shower.

Centred around a large green, Westleton is one of the most popular places to stay on the Heritage Coast. It is an ideal base for the beach or for Minsmere, as well as the coastal heaths and forests.
