Thorpe-le-Soken offers village lifestyle

The Essex village of Thorpe-le-Soken is well-placed for those looking to remain within easy reach of large cities but enjoy a more sedate village life.

Located in the north-east region of Essex, the village dates back to Saxon times and this is very much reflected in the local parish church of St Michael and a number of buildings along the high street.

The village has a wide range of local services, including a primary school, doctor's surgery and Tendring Technology College. These play a key role in encouraging the great community spirit in the village and there are plenty opportunities for people to get involved in local life.

People looking for property for sale in Thorpe-le-Soken will also be pleased to discover the range of pubs, eateries and shops in the village, including the Prince of India, Julio's, Tesco Express and Murco petrol station.

The local social club regulary holds events for residents, including live music. There are also a number of exercise classes that take place in the village hall, such as Jazzacise.

One of the most recent developments in the village is the creation of the Lifehouse Spa and Hotel.

Set in 12 acres, the new facilities offers an upmarket spa experience in a very modern building. There are a whole host of membership options for local residents. It also offers luxury accommodation for family and friends who may want to visit.

Thorpe-le-Soken is just 13 miles drive from Colchester along the A133 and the coastal towns of Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton on the Naze are all close by for a day trip out.

The cities of Chelmsford and London are within commuting distance so ideal for workers and those who enjoy the reassurance of big-name shops and facilities being nearby.

Many local residents opt to use the nearby train station which links with the city of London and passengers are able to reach Liverpool Street Station in just over an hour.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801706154-ADNFCR
