Saffron Walden – a historic centre in the beautiful Essex Countryside

Ideally located just 18 miles from Cambridge and 12 miles from Bishop’s Stortford, Saffron Walden is a culturally rich medieval town that gained its wealth from wool and saffron. You’ll enjoy a perfect market town atmosphere, beautiful historic buildings, and the largest parish church in Essex – St Mary’s Church – at the town’s heart. Our houses for sale in Saffron Walden are located within the stunning Essex countryside and are a stones’ throw from heritage sites like the 19th century garden at Bridge End, just under a 10 minute drive away. It’s the local transport links, deep history, and beautiful country location that make Saffron Walden such a sought-after location.
