Old Applecroft Farmhouse
5 bedrooms, sleeps 8
Old Applecroft is situated within 7 acres of grounds, close to the Stour Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Old Applecroft Farmhouse and Old Applecroft Farm Cottage are delightful, detached buildings, accessed via a track approximately ¾ mile long. As a welcome to this picturesque area, each booking in the farmhouse or the cottage will receive a welcome gift on arrival.
Old Applecroft Farmhouse has a farmhouse style throughout with the added feature of a large conservatory/games room with pool and table tennis where guests can enjoy 180° views of the surrounding 7 acres of grounds. It is set over a large area and includes a separate wing with a further living/games room. This is ideal for a large family, perfect for weekends away with close proximity to fantastic transport links, but situated deep in the countryside of Essex.
Old Applecroft Farm Cottage is also detached with a farmhouse style and ideal for small families and couples.
The village of Great Henny is very rural but has all you need including a shop and riverside pub/restaurant. The ancient market town of Sudbury is nearby as is the Stour Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dating back to Saxon times, there is a long history in the weaving and silk industries. Much of the work by Thomas Gainsbourgh was inspired by the beauty of Sudbury and you can visit his birthplace, art gallery and museum, exhibiting a number of his paintings.
The area is particularly famous for the work of Constable and is referred to as ’Constable Country’. The River Stour provides the setting for much of his work. To the east you can visit Colchester with shopping, restaurants and pubs. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
