LOCATION The ever popular village of Westleton lies within a short drive of the Suffolk Heritage Coastline at Dunwich and is easily accessible from the A12 road at Yoxford which lies approximately three miles to the west. The village has the added advantages of a motor repair garage, public house, the renowned Crown Inn and a village store catering for most everyday needs.

The market town of Saxmundham lies about six miles to the south and has a good range of shops in a traditional High Street setting, together with both Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets. The pretty town of Halesworth lies eight miles to the north west and offers a wide variety of shops in its pedestrian Throrughfare. Both Saxmundham and Halesworth lie on the East Suffolk railway line, the nearest station being at Darsham Halt about three miles to the west and which gives regular connections via Ipswich to London Liverpool Street.

For those with leisure interests in mind the Suffolk Heritage Coastline is less than 10 minutes drive away and the nearby Dunwich forest and heathland offers some most rewarding country walks. The internationally renowned RSPB Minsmere reserve lies about two miles distant and for music lovers the Snape Maltings Concert Hall lies just south of Saxmundham.
