Note: Please be aware you may hear some noise from the road outside of the property. Please note: The pool is available May - September between 10am and 4pm (weather permitting). Region: Cambridge is a delight to visit in any season: relax in its many pubs, restaurants and cafes whilst exploring the shops around the historic market place. If you want to get up, out and about, you couldn’t have picked a better county to explore. Town: The village of Alresford is situated in Essex alongside the River Colne, seven miles from Colchester and nine miles from the coast and beaches of Cacton-on-Sea, while the city of Chelmsford is a 45-minute drive away. Alresford itself has a good selection of shops, a post office, convience store and a handful of restaurants to choose from, as well as stunning gardens and nature reserves to explore, including The Beth Chatto Gardens, an ecological garden planted in the 1960s, the ancient Cockaynes Wood, mentioned in the Doomsday Book and home to a variety of birdlife and barn owls, plus the Essex Wildlife Trust's Fingringhoe Wick, former quarries turned into a nature reserve and part of the Colne Estuary Site of Special Scientific Interest. The historic town of Colchester is home to a stately 12th century castle, built on the foundations of a Roman temple, resting within Castle Park, and has a museum with ancient artefacts that are more than 2500 years old. The Dutch Quarter of town still displays the remains of a Roman theatre, while Hollytrees Museum features clothing and decorative arts that are centuries old. Colchester offers plenty of places to eat drink and shop, as well as a fantastic zoo, perfect for a family day out and why not head over to Mesea Island, home of Colchester's native oyster? Clacton-on-Sea and the coast are nine miles away, where you'll discover a variety of entertainment, as well as fantastic beaches, a pier and pavilion. A wonderful array of opportunities awaits you from this wonderful village location.More
