The Location White Horse House is set back from White Horse Road as you enter the popular village of East Bergholt in the sought after Dedham Vale conservation area. The village is much admired and well known for its connections with John Constable, the renowned painter. It caters well for local facilities with a general store, post office, bakery, chemist, church, schools and several public houses. East Bergholt is situated in the undulating countryside of the Stour Valley with easy access to the A12 trunk road providing main routes to the A14, The Midlands, London and the major motorway networks. The centres of Ipswich and Colchester are also easily accessible with their more comprehensive shopping and educational facilities and the commuter can take advantage of mainline train services to London’s Liverpool Street Station from both Manningtree and Colchester. There are excellent recreational facilities in the area including sailing on the Orwell, Deben, Colne and Stour, golf courses at Stoke by Nayland, Colchester and Woodbridge, racing at Newmarket and point to pointing at Higham.
