The perfect village retreat, Willow Tree Barn is set adjacent to National Trust woodland, but also has easy access to London.

This quaint, detached property is located in the charming village of Purleigh. Set within the owners’ grounds, it makes a quiet country retreat with good access to London and the local town of Chelmsford. Formerly a derelict barn, it has been brought back to life and restored to a very good standard by the owners. Comprising a spacious double bedroom, shower room and open plan living area with kitchen, this property still holds its charm with wooden beams but boasts a contemporary style. Guests can enjoy a private garden with seating area and water feature, where they can sit and relax in summer, enjoying a glass of wine in the evening as the sun sets, whilst planning the next day’s adventures. There are several walking routes and cycle paths in the area, as well as two golf courses, and the local pub is a just a small walk away. For a more vibrant atmosphere, Chelmsford is a short drive where you can visit Hylands House, Chelmsford Cathedral and even the local zoo. For a trip to London, Willow Tree Barn is a short drive from North Fambridge train station from where trains run to Stratford (home of the former London Olympics and now West Ham Football Club) and from there directly into the capital, so you can explore the sights of London in a day! Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Had an excellent week here. Cottage was very comfortable, private and quiet. Carlo and Liz were very welcoming and friendly, with supplies of milk, bread, eggs, marg, etc. to start me off. Lots of interesting places to visit within fairly easy car journeys. Also London was convenient to get to by train via a local station.

    Had a very comfortable stay at Willow Tree Barn. We were house hunting in the area and the owners were so helpful offering suggestions on places to visit and areas to look at for properties. The barn was cosy and contained most things you would need for a stay. A car is necessary as you need to travel for most amenities. We would have no hesitation in returning to the property . It was very good value and well placed for visiting large areas of Essex. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
