The rolling countryside of North Essex is the most rural, with small market towns, traditional villages and tiny hamlets linked by quiet country lanes. Along the Essex and Suffolk borders is the beautiful ‘Constable Country’.
Essex has 350 miles of coastline, including many miles of remote and undisturbed shores and estuaries. Throughout Essex we have beautiful gardens to visit, well cared for parks, and a vast array of nature reserves.
Wherever you are in the county, you can be sure that very near you are wide open spaces just waiting to be explored.
