Customers’ Choice Award 2017 & 2018
Visit historic Colchester from this rural holiday base, which was once a bakery and has a characterful beamed interior.

Set in 2½-acre grounds with abundant wildlife

Enjoy a relaxing, rural holiday surrounded by 2½ acres of landscaped and natural gardens in one of these two properties which offer a fantastic location for a romantic getaway. With plenty of wildlife to spot, and beehives at the end of the garden, you can wander around the apple orchards or relax on your own private decking area, making this an ideal place for a countryside break. Converted from an old bakery and adjacent to the owners’ home, but very secluded, The Orchard (ref. 30314) and The Old Bakery (ref. 30315) still boast original wooden beams, and have been decorated and finished to a very good standard. Langham is about half way between Colchester and Ipswich, close to the A12 which gives easy transport links for exploring the local area. The northern boundary of Langham is also the boundary between Essex and Suffolk. The famous Constable Country is 3 miles away with Flatford Mill and Dedham Vale, and historic Colchester is close by, famous for its cobbled streets, castle and zoo, and has a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. Also within reach are Ipswich, Chelmsford, Orford, Aldeburgh and Felixstowe, or enjoy the beach at Clacton-on-Sea. Opportunities for golf and fishing are available nearby, or travel a bit further afield and you can explore the myriad attractions of London. Shop and pub within 1 mile, restaurant 2 miles.

    Everything in the cottage was perfect with the exception of the mattress, which was very uncomfortable,

    This is a lovely cottage set in an attractive and secluded spot. The surrounding gardens are truly beautiful. Everything is catered for, there is a fully equipped kitchen, a quaint living room with comfortable furniture and pleasant decor. The bedroom has a four poster bed and a very olde-world feel about it. Much thought has gone into the "dressing" of the cottage and we really enjoyed our stay.
