Ransomes pond

If you are looking to get away for a few days, either for a mid-week break or a long relaxing weekend, this area of North Essex has a wealth of attractions for you to explore.

As well as enjoying the view from our B&B (above), by day you can visit the nearby Essex Wildlife Trust nature reserves at Fingringhoe Wick and Abberton Reservoir – ideal for keen birdwatchers. By night, relax at Ransomes bed and breakfast in complete privacy, either in our Annexe with its two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom, or in our Blue Room.

To give you a bright start to the day, we offer a delicious Full English Breakfast – with all locally sourced produce – while you enjoy the view from our farmhouse kitchen across our field and pond.

As well as the nearby towns of Colchester, Maldon, Mersea and Tiptree, we recommend a visit to the historic Layer Marney Tower. There are some wonderful scenic local walks or you can keep fit with a day pass at Five Lakes Hotel and Spa – or even stay with us if you are attending a wedding at Five Lakes.

If you are looking for B&B accommodation near Great or Little Wigborough, Salcott, Tolleshunt D’Arcy, Layer de la Haye, Layer Breton, Birch, Langenhoe or Abberton, Ransomes is a guest house with a difference, offering the perfect welcome for families with children.
