a village Store
a village Pub
an old fashioned garage where you can get still your oil changed
a fantastic - and totally unique - Bookshop in a converted Chapel, appropriately named Westleton Chapel Books
offering teas & coffees to browsers
and the icing on the cake - The Westleton Crown
, one of Suffolk's top Inns, offering fine dining, luxury accommodation and a friendly bar (dogs welcome!)
The Westleton Crown
This is a traditional, recently fully refurbished, Suffolk Inn offering a distinctly different experience to your usual hotel, restaurant or pub.
Dating back to the 12th century, this Suffolk coaching Inn retains the character and rustic charm of its heritage – but with the added sophistication and comforts of contemporary living. The restaurant has AA 2 Rosette menu and extensive wine list, and the bar has plenty of local ales so this is a great base to explore the surrounding countryside.
Westleton is also very close to RSPB Minsmere
so come and visit soon and see the best of Suffolk has to offer.
Every year Westleton hosts the infamous Barrel Rolling Fair in August
where contestants literally have to roll barrels down the Village Green using a pole. The men have to roll the barrel back up the hill too. Barrels are supplied and all are welcome to join in! Find out when the next Fair is on here - Fetes, Fairs and Shows in Suffolk
