The local area


Halstead town centre is less than a mile from the development. This pretty market town boasts a broad selection of independent shops and branches of well-known chain stores on its high street, as well as a regular food and craft market, cafés, traditional pubs and restaurants.

Braintree is around eight miles to the south of Portway Place and Colchester is 13 miles away. Both places offer a wealth of shopping options in their town centre stores and retail parks.


Halstead has a community theatre – the Empire – that stages live music, drama, comedy and family shows, and a leisure centre with a range of facilities.

Historic buildings of note, include St Andrew’s Church, which dates back to the 14th century, and the 18th century Townsford Mill. A former corn and silk mill, it is situated just off the bottom of High Street, on The Causway and is today home to Halstead Antiques Centre.

The countryside location of these new homes in Halstead lends itself to outdoor activities, such as walking, cycling and horse riding. Broaks Wood has five miles of walking paths and is rich in wildlife, wildflowers and trees – including Giant Redwoods – while Gosfield Lake Resort offers fishing, water skiing and open-water swimming. Both are within 10 minutes’ drive of the development. Formal parks in the area include Halstead Public Gardens, off Trinity Street, and Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum in Coggeshall.


For families, several well-regarded schools can be found within the local area, including Holy Trinity CE Primary School and Richard de Clare Community Primary School for younger children, and The Ramsey Academy for older pupils.
