    Our cottages are professionally managed by our partners and payments are taken by them, but rest assured, by booking via Snaptrip you'll pay the lowest possible price for your trip.

    We never charge you more than you would pay booking directly on the partner's site and if you become a Snaptrip member you can save even more. If you find a property priced lower anywhere else on the internet (we’d be amazed if you do), simply email us at marketing@snaptrip.com and we'll refund you the difference.

    About this property

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

    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.

    "A beautiful cottage and garden situated close for days out. The Owners were very helpful and welcoming. A particular nice touch was their welcome hamper containing honey collected from their own bees."

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the old bakery. The owners were lovely and made us very welcome. We were allowed free range of their beautiful garden and the abundance of wild life was second to none. We would highly recommend this lovely cottage."

    "A very pleasant cottage, which we enjoyed for our festive week's stay. Very accessible, easy to reach from the A 12 and Colchester. Easy to heat, even on cold days with good cooking facilities and a decent sized fridge. Kitchen storage and worksurfaces a little limiting.The village has an adequate shop for essentials and a very good pub. The key handover was very easy and precisely on time as booked.I am sure we will return."
