THE SURROUNDING AREA
Braintree, Essex was chosen as the location for Westgate’s Riverdale Care Home due to it being a pleasant, tranquil town with good transport connections to London. However Braintree is situated near many other locations including Brentwood, Colchester, Chelmsford, Halstead, Epping and Ingatestone. Great Notley and Black Notley lie just outside Braintree, making the picturesque parish an ideal spot for a short trip for Riverdale residents and their guests. A little further towards the coast is Hatfield Peveral, where history enthusiasts can learn about the village’s Norman history. And if Hatfield Peveral doesn’t satisfy your historical cravings, you can go back even further with a visit to Hatfield Broad Oak. Believed to be one of the oldest settlements in the area, traces of Bronze Age civilisation have been found in Hatfield Broad Oak, making it an absolute must for anyone interested in South-East England’s storied past. Arts and crafts lovers staying at Riverdale can also make the short trip to Blake End, Stebbing – known for Blake House Craft Centre and the village’s arty vibes. A few miles north of Blake End is Finchingfield, a truly picturesque village that charms every visitor. Days here can be spent feeding ducks at the village pond, enjoying a drink in the delightful village pub, or indulging yourself with a cream tea on the green. Once an important point on the route between Norwich and London, Finchingfield now has a far more laid-back feel to it. The only hard part of a day here is forcing yourself to leave! For those looking for a bit of nature, just outside of Braintree is the delightful hamlet of Bartholomew Green. Alternatively, the nature reserve found in nearby Bocking, Gosfield has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty by Natural England and is well worth a visit. Finally, Riverdale residents looking for a day out can easily head to nearby Coggeshall to enjoy the market. Despite its size and the many shops and cafes in the town, the locals still like to refer to Coggeshall as a village as a testament to its enduring charm. It is also well known for its many antique shops, meaning a day can easily be spent shopping for a rare item of simply enjoying the eclectic mix of antique wares. These are just some of the gems found near our Riverdale Care Home in Braintree, Essex. If you have any questions about the surrounding area of any of our care homes give us a call and speak to one of our knowledgeable staff today.
