Colchester is a thriving town offering excellent local amenities along with its very own castle, and Roman ruins going back even further. You'll be able to benefit from excellent transport links and plenty of green open spaces. Colchester is halfway between Chelmsford and Ipswich on the A12, one of the main routes through Essex. It's also well-connected to Harwich and Braintree so if you need to commute, your new home here puts you in a great location. Essex has some lovely countryside, and the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just to the north. The coastline is fun to explore too, with family-friendly resorts within easy reach for a day out.
Colchester city centre is less than mile from Castellum Grange offering a bustling high street with a mixture of independent stores and high street favourites. There's also plenty of history in and around the town with its spectacular sections of Roman wall's and ruins. In contrast, the Firstsite is a modern building with an array of contemporary art and hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Castellum Grange is surrounded with wonderful outdoor areas to discover by foot or bike, such as the nearby Colchester Castle where you can explore the woodland pathways and gardens. Not only is there plenty of outdoor space to be active, Leisure World Colchester has a swimming pool, a fully-equipped gym and a range of fitness classes. Colchester Zoo is also a popular day out for the family with over 260 animals including rare and endangered species and 60 acres of parkland & lakes to explore.
