Three of the top market towns in Essex

If you are thinking about a move out of the London then how about considering one of these three market towns; Braintree, Coggeshall or Epping. As all three were among the top market towns cited by Homes & Property due to their good-value homes, quick commutes and sprawling countryside, stating “Forget salons and Towie types, the county of Essex offers buyers lovely countryside, good commutes to the City, and some quality options for buyers ready to leave London but not quite ready to bury themselves in the sticks.”

Coggeshall they describe as the “pocket rocket of Essex’s market towns.” It’s a small, unspoilt town with some of the properties dating back to the 14th Century. The fact that it doesn’t have a train station has meant that has remained unspoilt. 

Just 8 miles away is the town of Braintree, a colourful, bustling town surround by beautiful rolling countryside. With it’s well-stocked shopping mall, charming coffee shops, banks, supermarkets and lots of pubs and good restuarants. As well as a cinema, theatre, leisure centres and rugby and tennis clubs and plenty of outdoor space for the whole family to enjoy such as Great Notely Country Park and Flitch Way, a 15 miles pathway which was formerly a train line running from Bishop’s Stortford to Braintree.
