    “The Bungalow was spotlessly clean and welcoming.”

    Owners are lovely people and care very much that you have a great stay. We had some wonderful bird watching events all week, we were very lucky. Thank you for a lovely stay we will be back again in June.

The property

Ideally located for touring the stunning Suffolk coast with its wonderful choice of beaches and villages, this cosy bungalow is situated in a peaceful close on the edge of the picturesque village of Westleton.

You will feel at home the moment you enter this ground floor cottage, passing through the hallway which leads to a comfortable sitting room with a stylish inset wall mounted electric fire, ideal for getting cosy after a busy day out and about.

The compact kitchen is well-equipped with everything you should need during your stay, and there is a separate dining room which overlooks the delightful garden.

There are two comfortable bedrooms, a king-size double and a twin, which both share the spacious shower room.

Outside, there is a large enclosed garden, a great place for youngsters to play in safety, and which features a summerhouse, where the adults can sit and relax whilst enjoying a cooling drink.

A short walk will bring you to the quaint village of Westleton, which boasts two pubs, a village store and even a bookshop.

TThis area is within walking distance of RSPB Minsmere and National Trust at Dunwich" instead of a few miles from saxmudham as we feel rspb and national trust Dunwich beach overlooking the sea is much more attractive and important especially as the clients we have been having in the past & present are primarily bird watchers and walkers.

This homely cottage is just six miles from the well-serviced town of Saxmundham and popular places such as Snape Maltings, Framlingham Castle, Orford Castle, Sutton Hoo and Orford Ness, are all within easy reach.

Ferndown is an ideal base for exploring Suffolk and its lovely coastal areas.

About the location


Saxmundham 6 miles; Southwold 9 miles; Aldeburgh 15 miles.

Westleton is an idyllic village near the Suffolk coast, nestled between Southwold and Aldeburg and offers all the attributes you could hope for in a Suffolk village, with a village green complete with pond and ducks. The village is easily accessible from the local train station at Darsham approximately two miles away. The village has a store, a bookshop where you can also enjoy a tea or coffee whilst browsing, an old fashioned garage, as well as two pubs, The White Horse Inn and The Westleton Crown, one of Suffolk’s best traditional inns where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate held their first wedding anniversary. Every August, Westleton hosts the infamous Barrel Rolling Fair where contestants have to roll barrels down the Village Green using a pole, and the men have to roll the barrel back up the hill too. Barrels are supplied and all are welcome to join in! The local Emmerdale Farm Shop and Butchery as well as a tea shop is approximately a mile away. The area is a haven for nature lovers with Westleton Heath National Nature Reserve, Dunwich Forest, Dunwich Beach with its famous fish and chip shop located on the beach, and the RSPB Minsmere, all close by. The town of Saxmundham, 6 miles away, is located on the River Fromus, in the heart of Suffolk’s Heritage Coast and is well serviced with independent shops, supermarkets and a train station, as well as art galleries, a weekly market and a farmers’ market.
