Welcome to your charming retreat in the heart of Saffron Walden, where history meets modern comfort. This inviting one-bedroom Oast house offers a serene escape just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Audley House. Nestled amidst picturesque countryside, this accommodation seamlessly combines the rustic charm of a traditional Oast house with contemporary amenities. As you step through the welcoming doorway, you’re greeted by a cosy living space that exudes warmth and relaxation. The interior boasts a harmonious blend of tasteful furnishings that create an inviting atmosphere. There is a small balcony to sit on with a glass of your favourite tipple and if you do not fancy the short stroll then you can sit and listen to some of the glorious music from Audley End House. The kitchen, though compact, is well-equipped with modern appliances, allowing you to whip up delicious meals with ease. The bedroom is a haven of tranquillity, adorned with soft linens and plush pillows on the comfortable bed.
There is no garden area around the property, however, but there are plenty of dog walks and a beautiful large common just off the centre of the town, which is a fantastic meeting place; the town is also very dog friendly in terms of pubs, cafés and tea rooms.
The Oast House is ideally located, allowing you to explore the nearby Audley House at your leisure. Immerse yourself in its rich history and elegant architecture, a testament to the grandeur of a bygone era. The medieval town of Saffron Walden with its array of shops, bars, restaurants and museum is a short stroll away. A walk around the Saturday market is perfect. If you fancy a day at the coast the pop along to Mersea Island. Mersea gets cut off for about an hour when there is a very high tide, usually once a month, so it’s worthwhile checking the tides, all adding to the uniqueness and charm. It is a beautiful island with lots of coastal and nature walks, seafood restaurants with the famous Mersea oysters, delis, takeaways, supermarket and child friendly pubs with craft beer. Why not visit Mersea Island vineyard and brewery where a beer festival is held at Easter and you can buy real ale, wines and even Mersea Island gin. The Mersea Regatta, which has been running since 1838, is held every August and should not be missed. There is a variety of rowing races, an outboard motor balloon race, swimming race and ‘walking The Greasy Pole’ and ends in a firework display in the evening. Just a bit further the popular seaside towns of Clacton, Frinton and Walton are great for a traditional day at the seaside, with amusements on the pier and lovely walks along the sea wall. For more traditional seaside fun with amusements and candy floss then Southend on Sea or Clacton is ideal. Pop on a train to London for a trip to the theatre, shopping in famous Oxford Street or have a lovely meal. Experience the fusion of history and comfort in this unique accommodation, where you can create cherished memories amidst the beauty of the Essex countryside.
