What we love


Description

Visit historic Colchester from this rural holiday base, which was once a bakery and has a characterful beamed interior.

All on the ground floor.
Living/dining room:
With electric coal-effect fire, Freeview TV, DVD player, iPod dock, beams and French doors leading to garden.
Kitchen: With gas cooker, combi microwave/oven/grill, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
Bedroom: With four poster double bed and beams.
Bathroom: With shower over bath, and toilet.

Both properties: Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack. Garden with terrace, garden furniture and barbecue. 2½-acre garden and orchard (shared with other properties on site). Private parking for 1 car. No smoking. Please note: There is a pond in the grounds.

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.
These properties can be booked together accommodate up to 4 guests.

    Beautiful and comfortable cottage. Very helpful and friendly proprietors. We didn't visit the local amenities; therefore, we are unable to comment. The landscape on Dedham Vale was beautiful.

    The old bakery, what an endearing retreat. It would seem every little detail has been thought through with care and attention. The decor is both classy and homely and the addition of a welcome pack full of local and very tasty produce is a lovely touch, their own honey was delicious (I bought some to take home). The garden and orchard are beautiful and contains so much detail that even as we left we discovered something new. Jo and Dave have a lovely holiday home, thank you so much we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    FABULOUS work base. Jo and Dave are wonderful hosts & the cottage is simply amazing. Very well equipped and extremely comfortable. I have only marked local amenities as less than a 10 since I have no awareness of what there is within the village given as above this was a work stay. I cannot recommend enough. Thank you
