Two award-winning tourism businesses have teamed up with a thriving community-run pub to promote all that the Suffolk village of Westhall has to offer.

The Westhall Racehorse and the owners of Sunnyside Campsite, Jo Jordan and Sally Basset, and Nick and Kim Hoare, of Ivy Grange Farm Barn, have created an information brochure to promote and celebrate the village near Halesworth and the surrounding area.

They have combined to create a "Welcome to Westhall" brochure introducing visitors to some of the delights of the village, with The Racehorse - now owned and run by the community - at its heart.

Mrs Jordan said: "We saw that walkers and cyclists, as well as those from further afield, were being drawn to the village by the success of the pub.

"Knowing some of the lovely local walks taking you to historic features - a Grade I listed church, ancient woodland with barn owls and bats and scheduled monument moat yards - and through beautiful countryside, we wanted to share some of these delights and perhaps encourage visitors to linger longer and think about Westhall as a place to stay.”

Chairman of The Racehorse committee, Chris Punt, said: "The brochure puts the pub at the heart of the village.

"It epitomises the strength of community spirit we've all experienced since taking on ownership of the pub just 16 months ago.

"We're delighted to welcome visitors from the surrounding villages and the feedback we get is that it's a warm, friendly, welcoming pub."

The brochure - featuring circular walks and showing footpaths from the station at nearby Brampton as well as the connection from the National Cycle Route just a mile away from the centre of the village - is available from the Racehorse pub and the two tourism businesses.
