Situated on the outskirts of Chelmsford is the village of Bicknacre which is a semi rural village with a population of approximately 4,500 people. Set within the heart of the Essex countryside and within neighbouring towns such as South Woodham Ferrers, Danbury and the historic market town of Maldon, not forgetting the lively County Town of Chelmsford.
The villages surrounding Bicknacre such as Rettendon Common, Woodham Ferrers, Howe Green, East, West and South Hanningfield all benefit from easy access to the delightful reservoir which incorporates a nature reserve and on site facilities including waterfront dining and a trout fishery. There are a number of facilities for the equestrian enthusiast with a selection of livery yards and bridleways.
Although surrounded by open countryside all the villages are within a few minutes drive of major roads such as the A12, A127 and A130 making this area very popular with homebuyers looking for a little bit of the country life, yet within easy reach of their daily activities.
