An idyllic lifestyle in a tranquil parish

With a mention in the Domesday Book, and a parish church dating back to the 12th century, Little Dunmow is a charming village nestling in the picturesque vale of the River Chelmer.

With only 99 homes at its historic centre, one of the village’s most notable features is the tomb of Matilda Fitzwalter, believed to have been the inspiration for the fictional character of Maid Marion from the Robin Hood tales. It is also the original home of an ancient ceremony known as the Dunmow Flitch Trial, whereby a flitch, or side of bacon, was awarded to a married couple who could claim that they had lived in total harmony for a year and a day. These days, the Flitch of Bacon is more likely to refer to the exquisite fine dining restaurant at the heart of the village, although the tradition still continues every leap year in neighbouring Great Dunmow.

Just three miles away, Great Dunmow is a bustling market town in the Uttlesford district, boasting one of the few remaining high streets in the country to host only independent retailers. Rich in character and steeped in history, it combines modern amenities with a delightfully quaint setting, offering everything a 21st century family would require. A popular leisure centre; tennis, cricket and bowling clubs; culture galore at the historic Maltings museum, the annual carnival and the extraordinary Talliston House and Gardens; beautiful gardens, at Easton Lodge; a library, community centres, doctors’ surgeries, vets. Restaurants, pubs and cafés abound, while for convenience Tesco superstore is on the edge of town.

The area offers a choice of primary schools: Great Dunmow, St Mary’s and (closest to Brimstone Place) Flitch Green primary schools are rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, while Felsted Primary is ‘outstanding’. Felsted Preparatory and Felsted School are two of the most highly-respected independent institutions in the area. Nearby ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ senior schools include the Alec Hunter Academy in Braintree and Forest Hall, Birchwood High, St Mary’s, the Hertfordshire and Essex High School
and Bishop’s Stortford High School in Bishop’s Stortford.
