Halstead is a quintessential English country town on the Essex/Suffolk border and offers schooling for all ages. The high street has excellent shops, three supermarkets, a delicatessen, a number of independent retailers, several banks, a leisure centre with a swimming pool, a library and a range of restaurants, pubs and cafés. There is also a theatre, the Queens Hall, and the public gardens play host to various band concerts all through the summer. Two golf clubs are close by and ramblers are well-served by a network of rural country walks and the river walk which runs through the town.
Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum (just eight miles distant) features an impressive global tree collection set in more than 200-acres of historic period landscape and the 110-foot Norman keep at Hedingham Castle, the luxurious traditional mansion at Kentwell Hall and the National Trust's magnificent Melford Hall are also nearby.
The surrounding Stour Valley countryside, immortalised by Gainsborough and Constable, is absolutely delightful - gently sloping, quintessential rural Suffolk studded with character thatched cottages and traditional inns.
