The Details...

Step away from the hustle and bustle and into traditional English village life at the Wheelwrights. This listed barn, which dates back to 1870, is located in the Essex village of Little Waltham and has been fully modernised to act as the perfect holiday getaway.

Traditional from the outside, as soon as guests enter this one bedroom escape they will be blown away by the luxury and style inside. The ground floor is one large open plan living, dining, and kitchen area. White ceiling, wood panelled walls, and tiled floor and walls give the space a crisp and clean look, but with colour and comfort added in via carefully chosen furniture, fixtures, and fittings. A large sofa, flatscreen smart TV, and desk sit at one end of the room under the vaulted ceilings and beams, while a dining table is found alongside the fully equipped kitchen - with fridge/freezer, oven, washing machine, and coffee machine - at the other.

A short walk down the corridor leads to the double bedroom, complete with large bed and quirky and stylish design. Alongside it is the luxury wet room with toilet, basin, and rainforest shower head to ensure ultimate relaxation. Double glass doors lead off the living area to the sunny courtyard where guests will find their own private outdoor space and further seating.

Located right in the centre of the village, it is only a short walk from Wheelwrights to the local pub and cricket green. Little Waltham Nature Reserve and The Essex Way are also nearby and offer great opportunities for walking and spotting wildlife. Yet despite this idyllic country setup, the village is only three miles from the city of Chelmsford and its fast trains to London Liverpool Street station. While in Chelmsford why not also visit its cathedral, or one of the many bars and restaurants on offer. Sports fans might also consider Chelmsford City Racecourse, or Essex County Cricket Ground.

Also nearby is the market town of Braintree with its great history and National Trust properties, and also the city of Colchester, which has its own castle and zoo.
