The Essex region

The property provides a great base for exploring pretty villages such as Lavenham, Finchingfield, Long Melford and Woodbridge. Being in the heart of Constable Country gives accessibility to the many country walks at Flatford Mill, Dedham and Manningtree.

The property allows easy access to A12, A14, and A120 which links to local resorts such as Clacton-on-sea, Frinton and Walton-on-Naze. Resorts such as Great Yarmouth and Southend are only an hours drive away.

Colchester train station is only around 10 minutes away giving access to London which takes 50 minutes into London Liverpool Street.


Colchester is Britain's oldest recorded town attracting more than 4.5m visitors every year. It is a thriving, modern town with many great visitor attractions, including the wonderful Colchester zoo.

Whatever your interests, East Anglia is a wonderful place to spend your holiday exploring nearby countryside for a 'breath of fresh air' including the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Mersea Island where you can enjoy local oysters. Colchester is a great place for shopping providing not only the usual household names, but small specialist shops where you can find many unusual treasures.

Colchester Zoo is a great favourite and a visit to Colchester Castle should be on any visitors list. There is horse riding, fishing and golf facilities in the area and plenty of country pubs and fine restaurants to suit all tastes.

Langham has a general store/post office and a public house called the Shepherd and Dog. The property is approx. ½ mile (10 min walk) from the Crown pub/restaurant.

There is a Shell petrol station close by plus a Tesco Extra store just a short drive away.
