We are lucky enough to have some of the most stunning hiking trails in the UK, right on our doorstep. Not only are we are located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but also within one of the few Dark Sky areas.
Take a leisurely stroll around the picturesque village, before having a bite to eat in one of our local pubs, The White Horse and the Westleton Crown; or a short 2 mile walk will take you to the world famous Minsmere nature reserve, the base of Spring Watch in 2014; the perfect spot for bird watching.
You could make a day of it and walk the 10 miles to Southwold, taking in Walberswick along the way, home to the world crab fishing championship, and pass through the stunning marshes and woodland.
A medium hike to Dunwich takes you through Dunwich woods and across Westleton Heath that frequently offers views of the red deer herds. October is the perfect time to come see the rutt, when the red deer stags bellow and claim their mates.
We are happy to suggest a suitable hike for you.
The Suffolk 100 cycle race also passes through Westleton.
Our local area has a rich and vibrant art and music scene. Snape Maltings hosts an eclectic programme of events throughout the year, and many of our local pubs host live music evenings.
There are activities for all and a rainy day gives the perfect opportunity to sample the delights of a days shopping in Norwich, or visit our local markets.
