About the neighbourhood
The village of Ardleigh provides easy access to the Roman town of Colchester, the oldest recorded town in English history. The many local museums and attractions provide a great insight into the many aspects of the history of this town.

Colchester Castle is the most important historic building in town (and one of the most important in the country). Built in the 11th century on top of the ruins of the Roman temple of Claudius, the castle has always been a focal point of the town and nowadays serves as a museum, providing visitors a unique insight into the history of the area.

Ardleigh lies on the edge of the Dedham Vale, with the neighbouring villages of Dedham and Flatford providing a multitude of ways to explore the sights of the river Stour. Local attractions include the Sir Alfred Man...

Airport: London Stansted: 60.0 km
Railway: Manningtree: 5.0 km
Ferry: Harwich: 20.0 km
Situated just outside Colchester, Vinces Barn is easily accessible by road and only 5 minutes from the A12 and approx. 45 miles from the M25.

With many cheap airlines (incl. Easyjet and Ryanair) and all major car rental companies, London Stansted airport (60 mins drive) provides the best option for those people flying in.
