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.

    Our stay at The Orchard was absolutely amazing, kitchen had everything we needed. The four poster bed was so comfy and the bedroom was very elegantly furnished. My favourite was the view of the garden, it was so relaxing. I would recommend this lovely holiday home. Looking forward to going back. The owners were lovely and welcoming.

    Beautifully decorated and equipped cottage, in lovely grounds. Very comfortable bedroom, with an excellent bathroom, lots of useful local information and delightful hosts. We stayed for 5 nights with our dog , who was even provided with bowls, treats and towels, but had to stay on lead in the garden. Although in the country, it was surprisingly difficult to find somewhere for the dog to have a good run, so we did need to drive out everyday. Highly recommended for a couple with a small dog. Do buy the home grown honey!!

    Outstanding cottage, everything and more. Also the gardens were just beautiful. Jo and Dave were very welcoming and friendly. We would stay again. And will be back for some more of Daves hand crafted local honey.

    We had a very lovely and relaxing time at The Orchard. The cottage is spotless and is a real artistic and aesthetic experience. The owners have decorated the cottage in an extremely pleasing way with exquisite attention to detail and colour. There are bits and bobs everywhere without it being kitschy in any way. I loved being there and really appreciated its artistic quality. We had beautiful weather and were able to make use of and enjoy the lovely little porch. The only thing that was missing that would of made it the perfect experience were some comfortable outdoor lounge chairs. The chairs that are there are a bit hard and not too comfortable for long periods of time. Having a lounge chair to enjoy the sun and the beautiful garden would of been great, but other than that it was a wonderful little getaway and we highly recommend this place.

    We had a marvellous welcome from Dave and Jo, with a welcome gift including new laid eggs, honey, biscuits and an Easter egg. The four poster bed was exceptionally comfortable. All the amenities in kitchen and bathroom were of a high standard. The outside deck was spacious and caught the sun throughout the day, overlooking the extensive orchard and pond. It was very convenient for visiting both Dedham and Flatford Mill. We definitely intend to visit the cottage again. David and Thelma
