Recently renovated barn to a genuinely high spec - Grade II listed 'Dovecote' located on a working arable farm in a lovely remote setting in the Essex countryside.

Situated next to a small duck pond, overlooking the farmyard/old stables/etc as well as the local church, The Dovecote is a two-storey brick and oak framed building finished to a truly high standard. Peaceful & remote with its own courtyard, the Dovecote has an elevated location in the otherwise undeveloped yard.

El espacio
The Dovecote has a 'one-up, one-down' layout which has been uniquely transformed into the perfect space for a rural getaway.

Enter via the original barn doorway through oak framed glass doors onto the ground floor laid with reclaimed brick flooring and consisting of a living room area with cosy log burner, a dining area and a well equipped kitchenette made from potato boxes!

Oak stairs lead up to the first floor revealing the full effect of the beautifully exposed original oak beamed roof, under which is a luxury kingsize bed.
An oak chest and a clothes stand/rail provide plenty of storage and there is a discreet TV upstairs too.

An original sliding barn door leads through to the en-suite shower/bathroom with a fantastic partial-glass wall and bespoke sink cabinet made from old farm tools and a slice of elm tree!

Located in Langley, Essex, the Dovecote is in walking distance (less than half a mile) from the local pub The Bull, and is only 3 miles from Clavering where there is a local shop along with Clavering Lakes (bistro restaurant & fishing lakes), The Fox & Hounds, and the well-known Cricketers gastro pub.

Langley and the surrounding villages have several public footpaths easily accessible from here.

Newport railway station is under a 10min drive away, and Audley End station approx 10mins, both of which offer trains direct to Cambridge and to central London.

Stansted Airport is a 20min drive away, or a 10min direct train journey from Audley End railway station.

Audley End House & Estate (English Heritage) is around 10mins drive and there are also plenty of National Trust destinations dotted around the local South East area including; Hatfield Forest (ancient medieval royal hunting forest, approx 30mins), Anglesey Abbey (35mins), Wimpole Hall Estate & working farm (45min drive), Ickworth House (50mins),
Thetford Forest (huge protected forest & lake, 1hr drive), and many more.

Saffron Walden is the nearest town (roughly 15min drive away); Tuesdays and Saturdays are market days and there's plenty to explore around the old town including the Museum, Fry Art Gallery, Bridge End Gardens & Maze, Battle Ditches/castle ruins, loads of pubs/restaurants, etc. The local vineyard has also just opened up to the public this summer for tours and tastings; https://www.saffrongrange.com/

Alternatively, Royston is approx 20mins drive from here and Bishops Stortford is 25mins.

Cambridge is approx 35mins drive and has as massive amount to explore - take a punt tour along the River Cam, check out a few museums (i.e: The Sedgwick, The Fitzwilliam, The Museum of Zoology, The Whipple, The Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology, Kettles Yard, The Polar Museum, etc), wander the various Uni/college grounds, visit the Botanical Gardens,...

Stansted Mountfitchet Castle (20mins), located in Stansted village, is complete recreation of a Norman village & castle; https://mountfitchetcastle.com/ (quiet weekdays are a nice time to visit). Also plenty of pubs, cafes, etc in this village.

Granchester Meadows & village is a 30mins drive... if you follow the River Cam by foot from Cambridge heading southwards it will take you here! Gorgeous natural space with great pubs, quaint church, orchard tea rooms, etc

Chilford Hall vineyard estate is also very local (30min drive), offering tours & tastings!
