Host Profile: Racehorse, Westhall

Westhall is one of Suffolk's very special places. The dipping, twisting and confusing single track road to the village frequently deceives car tourists; diverting them through a crack in the space/time continuum onto Brampton or Beccles unawares. A myriad of quiet lanes surrounding this 'mystery spot' are popular with walkers and cyclists.

Village life is very active and hasn't yet reached the tipping-point caused by second-homes. The villager's pantomime and other festivities are legend.

Cyclists and walkers can easily reach Westhall by rail from Brampton Station on the East Suffolk Line and Sustrans National Cycle Route One passes nearby offering a couple of miles car-free cycling to Halesworth across a former WW2 airfield. Look out for the dragon house and some other treats only those who venture there can discover.
