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.

Die Unterkunft
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.
