The Cricketers 4*

The Cricketers 4* is a beautiful period property shrouded in wisteria and nestled in a pretty country garden. Boasting original historic features, the 16-century cottage has plentiful character and country charm. Recently refurbished, the hotel features floral accents and botanical-inspired prints that harmoniously blend with its pretty countryside setting.


Situated in the small village of Clavering in beautiful North Essex, guests staying here can enjoy great access to country walks and cycling routes in the surrounding countryside. It is also close to the historic town of Saffron Walden whenever you want shops and cafés, and is perfectly situated for a day out to the grand Audley End House and gardens, charming Cambridge or Newmarket, known for its horse races.


Whether visitors are looking for a romantic weekend away or a get-together for friends and family, you are sure to be enchanted by this lovely boutique hotel.

Essex County in the South East of England has many charms and draws as a popular and varied tourist destination. From ancient towns, rural walkways, historic markets, and stately homes, to fresh sea-air and pleasure piers, this diverse county has much to offer visitors. Historically, the area is rich in heritage, boasting Roman Towns and archaeological remains spanning 2500 years. Notably, the town of Colchester, once the most important city in Roman Britain and now a thriving modern town, rewards visitors with first-rate galleries, museums, and boutique shops. Colchester Zoo is a firm family favourite, while impressive Colchester Castle claims the title of the largest Norman Keep in Europe and is well worth a trip. 
The natural beauty of the Essex countryside has long been celebrated, and rural scapes captured in John Constable's famous artworks are seemingly unchanged since first painted over 200 years ago. Country rambles and picturesque cycling routes have drawn many out of the cities and into the wilderness, offering an abundance of great British pubs and tea-rooms to keep visitors refreshed along the way.
A key feature of the county is the draw of its seaside towns. South-End-On-Sea and Clacton have remained popular destinations since their birth as Victorian holiday resorts. Indulge your nostalgia of pleasure piers, classic Victorian architecture, arcades, and fish and chips on the beach.
Other highlights include Mersea Island with its glorious seascapes and fantastic fresh shellfish; and Chelmsford's Tropical Wings Zoo and its neo-classical 19th-Cetnury villa, Hylands House. With many hidden treasures, the county of Essex is a true gem just waiting to be explored.
