Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Westleton

Spacious bright 4 bed house sleeps 7 in Westleton

A light and spacious house in a great location, with lovely walks from the front and back doors, birds, a garden and masses of things to do. Open fire, piano. 12 Heath View is a quiet, comfortable semi-detached house on the edge of the small village of Westleton in Suffolk. The house is used as a family home and facilities are not in the formal B&B style.

Westleton has a green, shop cum Post Office, 2 pubs, and a fairly famous second-hand book shop. Immediately across the road from the house is a footpath across RSPB land, with nightingales sometimes making it hard to sleep in April and May. You can walk across the heath to Minsmere (45 mins walk), Dunwich (30 mins walk), Southwold (2 hours) etc..

The area is perfect for birdwatching, walking, and cycling. There are concerts (Snape Maltings), crabbing (Walberswick), boating (Southwold, Orford), pretty coastal towns with individual shops and galleries, and some of the best fish and chips in England (Dunwich, Aldeburgh)!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Lovely location, could be a lovely cottage!

  • 3 of 5

The location of the cottage is excellent for walking, we walked for miles without the need to use the car, but also only a short drive to lovely seaside towns for my elderly parents. The garden was also lovely, a decent size and very quiet and secluded, the dog loved being able to chase the ball on the field directly out of the back gate.

The cottage itself was a little disappointing. It was a decent size and very handy having 2 toilets for our party of 7 adults, however it is in desperate need of redecoration and a thorough deep clean. The sinks, toilets and bedding were perfectly clean, however the lounge furniture and decor was extremely grubby! Also we have never stayed in a cottage with so many creaky/squeaky floorboards! When anyone moved about upstairs the whole household knew about it. We were in the large double aspect bedroom at the front, next to the toilet, and everytime someone used the loo the creaking floorboards and squeaking door woke us up.

The local pub, White Horse is highly recommended for food, lovely quality and very friendly.

Would we stay again, in the area definately, in the cottage? Only if it was updated and thoroughly cleaned!
