Saffron Walden is a picturesque North Essex market town which was awarded the title of ‘Best Small Outdoor Market’ in the 2018 Great British Markets Awards.
There’s much more to this town than just fresh fruit and veg however.
The town is regularly recognised as one of the best areas in the UK to live, based on various criteria including employment, healthcare and schooling.
In recent years Saffron Walden has benefitted from the ‘Cambridge effect’ that is, tech workers and academics being priced out the area and instead searching for leafier pastures new.
Prices have risen sharply in North Essex and the close-knit community of Saffron Walden is no different. Highlights include:
Excellent transport links to London and Cambridge with easy access to the M11 and Stansted Airport for journeys further afield.
Some ‘outstanding’ primary and high schools as rated by Ofsted, as well as independents and specialist schools.
Easy access to the rolling hills of the Essex countryside with plenty of green spaces and outdoor clubs and facilities.
A wide choice of property styles to choose from. Period homes are located in the centre of town and several new build developments have recently come on the market.
Low crime rates and a great community feel makes it perfect for families.
The average housing price in Saffron Walden is currently £477,085 which although higher than the UK and Essex average, actually represents a slight decline over the past 12 months of £1,202.
Saffron Walden features an interesting mix of period and modern properties where demand outstrips supply.
There are also five new build developments under construction which have been commissioned to meet the high demand.
In terms of property styles, flats typically sell on average for £232,838 while terraced homes, some of which retain the ornate architecture of the town’s yesteryear sell for £340,621.
The town centre is recognised as a conservation area and so prices for its beautifully decorated townhouses and cottages come at a premium.
There are also a decent splodge of Victorian and Edwardian terraces and suburban estates. For somewhere more remote away from the bustling market centre head to the unspoilt villages of Finchingfield and Thaxted.
Saffron Walden has a wide variety of primary schools of a high quality. St Mary’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, R A Butler Junior School and St Thomas More Catholic Primary School are all reputable schools and have achieved good results according to Ofsted.
Places at the prep school Dame Bradbury’s are much sought after. The school comes with an ‘exceptional’ rating from the Independent Schools Inspectorate. Many pupils from Dame
Bradbury’s go on to study at the Stephen Perse school in Cambridge, which is part of the same school group.
Saffron Walden County High School is a larger than most state school and popular choice among parents, with an ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted.
GCSE results regularly exceed the average and the school was praised for the quality of teaching on offers, the students’ attitude to learning and the high take-up of extracurricular activities.
Residents have access to some excellent clubs, recreational, social and sporting facilities.
Saffron Walden Cricket Club play on the town’s common, with a history of cricket matches recorded back to 1757. Its Rugby Club plays in the London Leagues and offer training and competitive games for children aged 6-18-years.
Indulge in some fine dining at the Cricketers Clavering a pub and restaurant with highly trained chefs serving up the best roasts on Sundays and other fresh local produce.
The Common is the centrepiece and oldest of Saffron Walden’s open spaces and on its eastern side is the largest turf labyrinth still surviving in Europe. Children can follow the ‘path’ through the turf, which winds for about one mile within a circle 100 feet (30.5 meters) in diameter.
Saffron Walden has many interesting historic buildings including the Jacobean mansion Audley End stately home and Gardens, and St Mary’s Church, which is one of the largest parish churches in the county.
Saffron Walden Museum is award-winning and opened in 1835. With wide-ranging collections covering the history of north-west Essex, from ancient times to the present day.
Audley End Miniature Railway offers a delightful 1.5-mile ride on Lord Braybrooke’s private 10.25” gauge track through the estate woodland. The children all enjoy looking out for the teddies that live in the woods, while the adults appreciate learning more about the town’s rich heritage.
