Community life in Thaxted is thriving, with numerous local clubs and societies, sports clubs and a famous Morris dancing group. The annual Thaxted Festival takes place in June and July, always presenting a fine programme of concerts.
Everything close to home
Thaxted is a charming place, with the wide high street and a mix of rendered and halftimbered buildings characteristic of this part of Essex. A windmill and the magnificent church spire are well known local landmarks.
While commuting to Cambridge or London is simplicity itself, Thaxted is far enough from the motorway and train station to have a life of its own, with football, tennis and bowls clubs all very popular. The school, shops and friendly pubs are all well used and popular with local people.
Easy to reach
The nearby town of Great Dunmow complements Thaxted with a wider range of shops and amenities. Saffron Walden, 7.5 miles away, has a supermarket and a good range of shops, banks, pubs, restaurants and
cafés. It also has a cinema and regular theatre productions, as well as a gym and fitness centre. There is also a large shopping centre at Bishops Stortford, just 15 miles away and there are plenty of places to visit including local heritage attractions such as Audley End.
