House style: Architecturally designed to make full use of the delightful views, large windows look out over the gardens. High Oaks is a spacious modern house with living space to share and quiet areas for reading and reflection.
Grounds: The landscape gardens of well over half an acre contain a number of mature trees and many plant species. The garden is divided into a number of discrete areas for you to enjoy at different times of the day as well as a large lawn for relaxing and sunbathing.
Sleeps 5 - there is a ground floor bedroom and bathroom making High Oaks suitable for those with some mobility difficulties as well as family groups and friends.
Ideal for: anyone enjoying walking, bird watching, cycling or simply exploring Suffolk's finest beaches. Surrounded by ancient heath land,with fantastic walks from the door, Westleton is just a couple of miles from the world famous RSPB Minsmere and the lost city of Dunwich, and the beach.
Westleton itself is typical of the best of Suffolk villages. A large village green, with duck pond, surrounded by mature trees, picture postcard cottages and a fine old coaching inn. The thatched church, built in 1340, is well worth a visit as is the fascinating second hand bookshop.
Southwold, Aldeburgh and Snape (home of the Aldeburgh Festival) are about eight miles away.
Eating & Drinking: Just a short walk from the house is The Crown and across the road, The White Horse - both lovely Adnams Pubs selling top quality pub food. Westleton also boasts an excellent restaurant and a rather nice tea shop. The village shop is 'TARDIS' like and certainly sold everything we could have wanted for our holiday. Dunwich has another excellent pub and a great fish and chip shop. Southwold, Halesworth, Yoxford and Aldeburgh all have lovely pubs and excellent restaurants. Fresh fish can be purchased from the fishermen's huts at Aldeburgh, Dunwich and Southwold.
Children: Most welcome at High Oaks and they will love the garden - do be aware that there are two small ponds so toddlers should be accompanied. There is also a large outdoor playground on the edge of the village and do take them to the Museum at Dunwich, it is a gem!
