Holly Tree, a holiday cottage in Westleton
Holly Tree is a beautifully renovated holiday cottage in the pretty village of Westleton, close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Holly Tree Cottage sleeps 4, with a largish double bedroom, and a smaller twin room upstairs (plus a sofa bed in the living room). Downstairs comprises a well-equipped sunny kitchen, a small morning/dining room , which opens on to the patio and garden, and a cosy sitting room. The spacious bathroom has a bath with shower over, shaving point, radiator and towel rail etc.
The bedrooms look out over the garden, which is large and slopes in parts. It has apple trees and a patio area with seating, perfect for barbequeing on a fine evening (barbeque provided). The garden is very very peaceful, and safe. Parking is at the top of the garden, next to the heath. There is a lockable shed in the garden, should you wish to bring bicycles. (Alternatively, you can hire bikes from The Eastbridge Cycle Hire Company in nearby Eastbridge)
The cottage is situated down a very quiet lane, and the large garden opens on to Westleton Common –the only thing likely to disturb your sleep is birdsong!
It lies within the Sandlings area, mid-way between Southwold and Aldeburgh, within walking distance of Minsmere, and about two miles from the coast at Dunwich. With two bedrooms, a double and a twin, Holly Tree Cottage provides delightful accommodation for four, and is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Suffolk coast.
Built around 1790, the cottage retains lots of character, with original beams, and an inglenook containing a Suffolk log-burning stove. There is full central heating throughout, and hot water, central heating, wood and electricity are included in the rental price. Wirelesss internet access is also available. The cottage is small but very comfortable, and cosy and uncluttered, and has everything you need for a fantastic holiday. It is ideally positioned, as it is adjacent to the common, but is only about 200 yards from the shop, pubs etc of Westleton.

Barn Owls July 2022
Barn Owls 2022
Unfortunately, this year the barn owl box has been taken over by jackdaws. Barn owls have occupied the nest for 8 years with the jackdaws living in a separate compartment at the top. Breeding was successful in 7 of those 8 years. Despite a barn owl occupying the nest box this winter, the jackdaws made their move in the spring and they are now sitting on eggs. Hopefully the barn owls will make a comeback next year!

Barn Owls 2020
The Barn Owls stayed in the nest box throughout winter and produced a clutch of eggs this spring. Unfortunately, the camera got knocked out of position so we couldn't see the eggs or chicks very clearly. At the moment there are two healthy looking chicks in the box, who we hope to see fledging in the next few weeks. If we manage to get any decent photos, we'll post them on the news page and Twitter.
