Welcome to Bradfield

A pretty village found about 3 miles South East of Manningtree in the district of Tendring, Essex. If  you find yourself travelling from the village along the coastal roads to Mistley or Wrabness there are outstanding views over farmland and over the river Stour to the Suffolk coastline beyond.

Housing stock here is quite varied ranging from smaller terraced and semi-detached homes through to more grand detached residences often found with field views. Critically though there is a good stock of bungalows found here and we often find that those searching for bungalows consider Bradfield as a destination as there are so few available in the older nearby town of Manningtree.

The northern end of the village overlooks the Stour estuary and there is access to a beach at the coastline, this a beautiful area with established walks and enquestrian routes through rolling countryside.

Bradfield has its own primary school, village store and sub post office and two locally run public houses. In the centre of the village you will find the village hall and there's also a recreation ground found towards the northern end of the village.

The village lies to the north of the A120 which connects to Harwich and Colchester (A12). There's a regualr bus route through the village and you're nearest mainline station is found at Manningtree about a seven minute drive away.
