Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Halstead town centre is less than a mile from the development. This pretty market town boasts a broad selection of independent shops and branches of well-known chain stores on its high street, as well as a regular food and craft market, cafés, traditional pubs and restaurants. There is also a community theatre – the Empire – that stages live music, drama, comedy and family shows, and a leisure centre with a range of facilities.

Historic buildings of note, include St Andrew’s Church, which dates back to the 14th century, and the 18th century Townsford Mill. A former corn and silk mill, it is situated just off the bottom of High Street, on The Causway and is today home to Halstead Antiques Centre.

Braintree is around eight miles to the south of Portway Place and Colchester is 13 miles away. Both places offer a wealth of shopping options in their town centre stores and retail parks.

The countryside location of these new homes in Halstead lends itself to outdoor activities, such as walking, cycling and horse riding. Broaks Wood has five miles of walking paths and is rich in wildlife, wildflowers and trees – including Giant Redwoods – while Gosfield Lake Resort offers fishing, water skiing and open-water swimming. Both are within 10 minutes drive of the development. Formal parks in the area include Halstead Public Gardens, off Trinity Street, and Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum in Coggeshall.


For families, several well-regarded schools can be found within the local area, including Holy Trinity CE Primary School and Richard de Clare Community Primary School for younger children, and The Ramsey Academy for older pupils.

About Bellway

From one bedroom apartments to luxury penthouses and prestigious executive houses, we pride ourselves on understanding the aspirations of all our buyers, not just in the type of home that suits your needs, but in the environment in which you want to live. Irrespective of your budget and the type of property you are buying, all our homebuyers are treated with the same high level of customer service from pre-sale, throughout the buying process and, of course, once you have moved in.

We believe that service doesn't just involve customer care; it's also about providing you with a range of attractive offers and incentives to make it easier and quicker to move. We will also work with you during the early stages of construction to enable you to personalise your new home through our Additions package.

Our high standard of service and build-quality is endorsed by our customers, 9 out of 10 of which would recommend buying a new home from Bellway to a friend. Although a major developer, we have not lost sight of what is important to our purchasers. Operating via nineteen regional divisions and employing local people allows us to stay close to our customers and take key decisions about design, materials and specification in response to local demands; another example of how, by putting buyers at the heart of our business, we have built a reputation you can rely on.
