Information on Cottage Holidays in Fordham

Although Essex isn’t renowned as a holiday destination, the northern part of Essex is incredibly beautiful. It is quite a well kept secret though and many have no idea what treasures await visitors to this part of East Anglia. Colchester is just six miles from Fordham and with its castle and attractive historical architecture is well worth a visit. Close to Colchester is Coggeshall, a quaint village with numerous historical buildings and tea shops, again not to be missed. The lovely village of Dedham too offers much of the same along with an interesting craft centre  and at just 14 miles away is a great place for a day out  whilst on a self-catering break in Fordham.

Fordham is also well situated for discovering some of Suffolk’s most inspirational sights and scenery. Long Melford with its beautiful village green and nearby National Trust Melford Hall is a wonderful place to visit and just 13 miles from Fordham. Just a little further afield, 17 miles away is Lavenham, a gorgeous historical village with numerous timber clad buildings, tea shops and country inns. All of these wonderful towns and villages are surrounded by gorgeous countryside which is a joy to drive or ride through.
