Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


This 12th-century coaching inn is in the village of Westleton, within the Yox Valley. Inside it's relaxed, with cosy enclaves, where you can read one of the hotel's books, or study the huge map on the wall to plan your next walk. Expect wood burners, beamed ceilings, exposed brickwork and rustic furniture.

You can dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant or in the traditional front bar. The kitchen uses produce from local butchers and fishermen, and the chefs bake fresh bread every day.

Best rooms have a roll-top bath big enough for two people, a heated bathroom mirror and towel rails, duck-down duvets and free Wi-Fi. Dogs are welcome at a £7.50 nightly charge, and are given biscuits and a blanket on arrival.

The 2.7-mile walk from The Westleton Crown to The Ship at Dunwich takes you through Westleton Heath National Nature Reserve. Minsmere -- owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds -- is less than a 10-minute drive away, and you can cycle along the nature trails through woodland, or walk to see the coastal lagoons.

Southwold is within 20 minutes' drive, and has a bustling harbour, a lighthouse and the Southwold Sailor's Reading Room -- a small maritime museum. Aldeburgh -- also 20 minutes' drive from The Westleton Crown -- is famed for being the home of composer Benjamin Britten. Visit The Red House where he lived and worked or walk along the Blue Flag shingle beach to see the pastel coloured houses on the promenade.
