Layer de la Haye is a rural village of around 2,000 people which dates back at least to Saxon times. The attractive 14th century church is worth a visit. The village is next to the renowned Abberton reservoir, one of the top inland bird-watching sites in Britain. It is also less than five miles from the sea and from the historic Roman town of Colchester with its ancient castle. Other tourist attractions nearby include Layer Marney Tower, the tallest Tudor gatehouse in England. We are only a short drive from Colchester town and the connecting routes to London; but still have the charm and peace and quiet of being in the country with some fantastic walks and even better pubs!
Twitcher friendly; ideally placed for the nearby Abberton Reservoir bird sanctuary, one of the most important sites in Britain for wildfowl with an informative visitor centre.
Bicycle friendly; the Fox is just off National Cycle Network Route 1 (which runs from Dover to the Shetlands) and at the junction of smaller touring routes. There are secure bicycle racks.
Room rates: Single £70, Double £80, Family £90, including a cooked breakfast in the morning or a continental in room.  We are dog friendly too!
