Your Destination —
There are some lovely local pubs and great things to see, especially in the Colne Valley only a short bike ride away. Bikes and kayaks can be hired from local suppliers, with advance warning.
The site is a wonderfully secluded spot tucked away between an apple orchard and 20 acres of woodland with acres of space to roam free. It is a fantastic spot to bring the children for a weekend in the countryside or to relax with a few friends around a campfire. Just 50 minutes outside of London, by train, yet nestled peacefully in a tranquil rural setting.
Great Tey is a small country village based in the heart of Colchester, Essex. The Village has a strong community feel.
Some of the most important events in British history have taken place in and around Colchester over the past 2000 years. The Romans, Saxons, Normans and Victorians have all left their mark here which you can discover today. But it’s not just history. Colchester today is a modern and fast growing town with many award-winning places to visit and eat. People love the shopping here too with its excellent range of small, specialist shops alongside all the big-name stores in a compact town centre bordered by the most complete Roman wall in the country.
A visit to Colchester Castle is now bigger, brighter and better than ever before, with brand new interactive displays. Explore the Roman vaults, have a go at building a Norman archway, or try your hand at excavating a Roman doctor’s grave (and much more besides!).
