> Eldred House is a glorious, Grade II* listed Georgian property located on the edge of Colchester. The oldest part of this beautiful property is believed to date from the 15th century. Surrounded by 52 acres of private woodland and landscaped gardens, the grounds host an abundance of wildlife along with two ponds and a large lake. Featured in the magazine Country Life and Gardeners Illustrated in 2012, the grounds are a big feature to this property, and are maintained by several gardeners throughout the year. The approach to Eldred House is through a secluded woodland road leading to a stunning view of the property, onto a sweeping gravelled drive, accommodating plenty of parking.
Decorated and furnished to an excellent standard throughout, guests have a choice of 8 spacious bedrooms including a top floor apartment-style room with a kitchenette and seating area. It boasts a delightful entrance hall which leads to the elegant drawing room with shuttered sash windows and views over the grounds and landscaped gardens and with the benefit of a gym. There are several open fireplaces within the property for that warm cosy feel in the winter. Although the kitchen is spacious and well-equipped with an Aga, microwave and contemporary fixtures it does not have a conventional oven for cooking. This is the perfect hub for any large family or groups of friends who wish to celebrate and enjoy a country getaway. Renovations to this property mean that the quality is to a fantastic standard, however still in keeping with the character and charm that guests desire. The combination of outstanding beauty, fantastic location and quality accommodation makes Eldred House the perfect location that guests will never forget.
Local attractions include Colchester Castle and Colchester Zoo, with its fantastic range of animals including leopards, elephants, tigers and much more. The local town of Colchester is just a short drive away and is the oldest recorded town in Britain, with an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants. Shop and restaurant 4½ miles, pub 2 miles.
