For Pam and Mick Childs, making the decision to move had to work on a number of levels; most importantly that the process would be as stress-free as possible.

Community, space and access to the great outdoors have been a priority this year like never before. City dwellers may dream about running away to the country but once lockdown is fully lifted, the cities will start to bounce back. Therefore, it is no surprise that a semi-rural location with great transport links to London is hitting all the right notes with homebuyers. One such location is Coggeshall, a picturesque and historic market town in Essex, eight miles to the east of Braintree. Although it boasts easy accessibility to both Colchester and London, it remains totally unspoilt and charming in character with its attractive centre made up of nearly 200 listed buildings. As one of the oldest town’s in Essex, Coggeshall has a village feel, which makes it rare to find a development of new homes.
