The South East England region
North Essex and Suffolk are blessed with rolling countryside and many beautiful villages. Field View is close to Castle Hedingham (3.6 miles) with its Norman Castle, Sudbury (the birth place of Gainsborough, 8.5 miles), Dedham (Heart of Constable Country, 27 miles), Finchingfield (the most photographed village in Essex, 8 miles), Clare (6 miles), Melford Hall (10 miles), Kentwell Hall (11 miles), Ickworth House (20 miles), and many more. The countryside is crossed by many footpaths and lanes, which are ideal for cyclists and walkers, particularly dog walkers as the majority of farms are arable with few livestock herds.
Looking further afield, Little Yeldham is between London (64 miles, 1 hr 30 mins by car and train) and Cambridge (30 miles, 55 mins approx. by car), so both can be visited in a day's excursion. Newmarket, famous for horse racing and the National Stud, is 22 miles, approximately 40 mins drive to the North, Colchester (Britain's first Roman City), which has a well stocked Zoo is 22 miles, approximately 45 mins drive to the South East and the beaches of Clacton (37 miles), Frinton (39 miles) and Walton on the Naze (40 miles) are just over an hour's drive in the same direction.
Field View is situated in Little Yeldham, but close to the boundary with Great Yeldham, which is 10 mins walk away and has 3 pubs, 2 with restaurants, a local shop, a post office, doctors and veterinary surgeries, and 2 takeaways.
The main attractions nearby are - The Norman Castle at Castle Hedingham (3.6 miles), various events occur here throughout the year, please see their website, and the Colne Valley Railway (2 miles).
Overall the area is rolling countryside with mainly arable farmland and woodland.

"This part of Essex is well worth a visit and Field View is the perfect starting place."
We were made very welcome by the owners when we arrived and they looked after us well during our stay. The apartment is very comfortable and is in a quiet setting with a lovely garden, a perfect place to relax after a day exploring the surrounding countryside etc.
Field View is quiet and peaceful but not too remote and is reasonably close to village shops and pub/restaurants. Plenty of walks around the local area. We had a very enjoyable week and we would certainly stay at Field View again.

"A pleasant relaxing stay"
We stayed for 3 nights in late May over the bank holiday weekend. We was given good instructions in what to do when we arrive and also information about a local farm shop.
The property was lovely and clean and really spacious ! The pictures don't do it justice and it is much bigger then the pictures describe. The kitchen had all utensils you can imagine. Additionally Chris and Eppie where always nearby for any queries or questions we had.
The owners also had a lovely dog who was always looking forward to seeing us. The garden is at the back of the property and if the weather was better we would have sat out on the decking much more. There is a walking path nearby the property which goes around the fields. The property has everything you can imagine for a well deserved break
We would definitely come back for a few days. The property is well situated and was very relaxing.

If you are looking to escape the rat race, for a quiet long weekend in the countryside, this is the place for you.
Chris and Eppie the owners, are the nicest people you could possible wish to meet. You simply go and come as you please and nothing is too much trouble.
The accommodation is immaculate, everything is self contained and the views to the rear of the annex are beautiful.
I would have no hesitation in returning there again.
