Oh, we do love to be beside the seaside—so when the nearest thing we get to sunbathing is sitting under the heater in the local beer garden, we think it's time to get out of the city. Come and sea for yourself how we're going to help you swap the hustle and bustle of London for the sun and sand of the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Life's a beach at the The Westleton Crown, a 12th-century coaching inn perched on the Suffolk coast between the picturesque seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh. You can rest ashore-d about the price as well: just £125 is enough to get you a two-night stay for two with daily breakfast and a £40 voucher toward a return stay of two nights or more at the rustic red-brick retreat (up to a £250 value).

You'll feel a wave of relaxation as you enter your double room where you can freshen up with Pecksniff toiletries in your Fired Earth en suite bath or shower room, relax in duck down duvets and egyptian cotton sheets on your double bed, and enjoy tea and coffee making facilities, bottled mineral water, flat screen television, and internet access that lets you surf the web whenever you like.

No visit to the seaside would be complete without fish and chips and the hotel's AA Two Rosette award-winning restaurant takes pride in its version of the quintessential dish, serving beer-battered fish alongside handcut chips and home-made tartare sauce. Head chef Richard Bargewell also has plenty to offer for those who aren't fans of fish and his menu is decorated with anything from potted chicken liver and black truffle pâté to chargrilled marsh-fed sirloin of beef.

If the weather's too nice to be spent inside sampling the local ales at the inn's traditional country pub, get outside and explore the beautiful natural surroundings. National Trust reserve Dunwich Heath is on your doorstep and is perfect for porpoise and seal spotting while the Minsmere RSPB reserve is home to birds from harriers to nightingales. Visit local fishing village Aldeburgh for river trips and the local music and arts festival, while Southwold offers pretty beaches, boat excursions, and tours around the famous Adnam's Brewery.

Don't give into pier pressure and spend this summer avoiding the rays in your local; the sands of time will soon see this opportunity disappearing. Click 'Buy Now' before the tide turns on this Escape, and you're left feeling very crabby indeed.

  • ''The interior is as warm and welcoming as can be, with a log fire blazing in the bar and walls covered with photographs of local scenes, old rural implements and so on.''
