About the neighbourhood
The lodges are situated in a private meadow which contains a winding brook and private fishing lake (for exclusive use of guests). There are plenty of country walks and a wealth of local pubs and restaurants to sample. If you want to go a little further afield, Colchester Zoo is within 20 minutes drive, not to mention Colchester Castle in one of Britain's oldest Roman towns. Want some culture? Gainsborough House (Thomas Gainsborough's birthplace) is in Sudbury and displays a number of his paintings. A glass of wine more your thing? Dedham Vale Vineyard is a short drive away and set in 40 acres of glorious rolling English countryside. Not forgetting a round of golf at the Colne Valley Golf Club, the area has something for everyone!
How to get there
The easiest way to get to the lodges is by car - we are about 15 minutes from the Stanway, Colchester exit off the A12. You could also come by train - there are stations nearby in Colchester and Marks Tey, not to mention a small station in Chappel/Wakes Colne itself. Local taxis will take you the mile and a half to the Lodges.
