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.

    My husband owns his own company and works long hours, it was his birthday weekend so booked this barn for a relaxing weekend away, was rudely awaken in the Saturday morning by a builder mostly constructing a timber frame directly next to our headboard!! Was not impressed at all, although the property was clean and well equipped... the loud building noises was our only issue and downside to our stay

    We had a lovely stay at Willow Tree Barn. There are some lovely walks in the area, and Carlo and Liz were very helpful in suggesting things to do.

    I enjoyed my stay at Willow Tree Barn and the owners, Carlo and Liz, are very friendly and helpful, especially Carlo and his son, carrying most of my luggage and bits from the car to the cottage. Carlo also has useful recommendations for places to visit. The place was immaculately clean and very comfortable and very well equipped. It is in an interesting area and there are many worthwhile sites to visit. I am slightly disabled and my only small criticisms are the low sofa and low fridge and the slope up from the drive but these would cause little problems for the able-bodied. I can fully recommend this cottage.
