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. There are two good pubs, a restaurant and well-stocked village store/post office - all in the village centre. Much of the area around the village is accessible open heath or mixed woodland.

Good holiday in a fabulous area. This is our 3rd or 4th time in this area and would come again. Service was excellent. Would book through yourselves again.Mr John Beecroft - 18th April 2016
This was a local short break for us, we only live in Lowestoft! But it was so nice not to drive back and forth and we walked in areas we don't usually get to when we park at Dunwich Heath NT. Also The Crown in Westleton was suburb, again no driving. Would love to go back, ideal local break.Miss Sarah King - 9th March 2016
