On the Suffolk Heritage Coast

About No longer in use

The Westleton Crown is a charming coaching inn dating back to the 12th century. Situated on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, between the popular seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold, it's the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing break away from it all. In addition to 34 stylish rooms, the inn also boasts 2AA Rosette-awarded food and an extensive wine list. Enjoy your meal in the cosy parlour or Garden Room during the winter months, and out on the terrace when the weather is warmer.

The rooms
Choose from single, double or family rooms, all of which have en-suite facilities, a flatscreen TV, and complimentary tea and coffee. Each room has been individually decorated – you'll find contemporary interiors in the cottages and newly converted stables, with more traditional features in the rooms located in the main inn.

On the doorstep and nearby
Just a short distance from the Westleton Crown takes you to Aldeburgh – home to a stunning beach, boutique shops, and a variety of popular restaurants and cafes. Be sure to walk along the shingle to Thorpness, or head out for an afternoon on the Mere. The beautiful beach huts of Southwold are also nearby.

If you fancy soaking up some culture, Snape Maltings is also within easy reach. Look out for regular music events in the world famous Concert Hall. Several antique and craft shops are also onsite.

Worth staying in for ...
Indulge yourself with the fantastic food on offer. You'll be spoilt for choice with everything from hearty breakfasts to traditional roasts and delicious desserts.
