  • “Comfortable accommodation with great views.”

    Internet description was accurate. Fishing the lake was good, lake was well maintained. Plenty of wildlife around. Thank you for free eggs. Places of interest were close and easy to get to, etc Duxford, Cambridge, Audley End. Saffron Walden was lovely market town. Would recommend.

About the location

ARKESDEN

Saffron Walden 5 miles; Cambridge 15.5 miles.

The picturesque little village of Arkesden sits amidst lovely Essex countryside, in a superb location within easy reach of the towns of Saffron Walden and Bishop’s Stortford, as well as the beautiful city of Cambridge. Home to a lovely church and quaint, thatched roof pub serving excellent food, including takeaway fish and chips each Tuesday evening, Arkesden is a lovely base for a rural getaway. Nearby, the flourishing market town of Saffron Walden boasts a number of medieval buildings, making it a fascinating place for a leisurely stroll. A market has been held within the town since 1141 and is still held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Within the town’s attractive common area there is the largest turf maze in England. There is also a Victorian hedge maze in the nearby beautiful Bridge End Gardens, which are maintained by local volunteers and really are worth a visit. There is a fantastic museum based in the grounds of the ruined castle keep, housing oddities such as mammoth tusks. Within easy reach is Cambridge, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford and English Heritage’s Audley End house and gardens. You'll find this attractive area of Essex steeped in history, and well worth a visit at any time of the year.
