THE LOCATION
Little Cornard is a small hamlet, on the side of the River Stour Valley, just outside the market town of Sudbury. It is surrounded by some of the most attractive countryside in the Essex/Suffolk borders, with many delightful villages and lovely walks. Sudbury provides a good range of amenities, including many shops, schools, a small theatre and a modern swimming pool/leisure complex. There are Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury superstores, and branch line stations at Sudbury and Bures, which provide links through to Marks Tey providing a change to the main Colchester to Liverpool Street line. Colchester itself is around twelve miles away, providing direct main line rail connections and an extensive range of facilities and amenities. Around ten miles away is the Eight Ash Green junction of the A12 and A120 providing links through to the M25 and across via the new express road to Stansted Airport and the M11, making the property ideal for the city commuter. Tina Mere stands back from the road and is set alongside Cornard Mere, a dedicated natural wildlife area maintained by a Trust. The end of the garden adjoins the lake itself giving wonderful views and wildfowl.
