Colchester is renowned for offering the best of both worlds for home buyers, with the hustle and bustle of the ancient town centre blended with the calming setting in the Essex countryside.
In particular, the local village of Dedham, provides exceptional dining, with an unrivalled experience at the riverside restaurant, Le Talbooth, which is located the picturesque building in one of John Constable’s paintings, The Vale of Dedham in 1828.
Just eight minutes away from the restaurant by car, Bellway is selling the extremely popular development, Forest View at Kingswood Heath where a fabulous new range of homes, ideal for families, first-time buyers and commuters, has just been launched.
Jenny Walker, Sales Manager at Bellway Essex comments: “Forest View is within striking distance of some of the most beautiful spots that Essex has to offer. The picturesque setting, top-class local amenities and excellent transport links make our homes at Forest View ideal for a buyers looking to raise a family, but it serves equally well for first time buyers and down sizers too. As Essex remains a prime hot spot for attracting home buyers, this parkland setting is something we are extremely proud of and we would encourage potential buyers to visit the development to see the brand new phase of homes for themselves.”
Forest View comprises two-bedroom coach houses, and two, three, four and five-bedroom houses. Each property incorporates modern design features, open-plan living spaces, integrated kitchen appliances and many benefit from gardens and garages, or private parking. The layout of the development also includes open space for the enjoyment of residents, echoing the parkland and countryside that sits virtually on the doorstep.
Colchester is a thriving destination for both business and leisure, with first class tourist attractions and local amenities. The historic Castle Park in the centre of town is home to Colchester Castle and indeed the largest Norman Keep in Europe, alongside a museum, boating lake and children’s play area.

Residents will also enjoy Colchester Zoo, listed as the 11th best zoo around the world and home to over 260 species.
