Barn Hoppitt Lodge, on the edge of Epping Forest, near Chingford.

About

Barn Hoppitt Lodge

Part of the City of London Epping Forest estate, this spectacular, dog-friendly abode benefits from direct access to the walks woven throughout the forest, close proximity to local amenities including transport links to the centre of London, off-road parking and a beautifully presented living space welcoming up to six guests.

After a fun-filled day, cross the threshold into the fabulous kitchen/diner where you can help rustle up a hearty meal to be enjoyed as a group at the dining table.

Later, unwind on the plush sofas in front of the warmth of the woodburning stove and Smart TV in the sitting room or step outside to the private patio to soak up the last of the sun with a glass of wine in hand.

When the sky darkens, head inside to wash off the day with a soothing soak in the bathroom before travelling to the first floor to catch your rest in one of three bedrooms; choose from a king, a double and a bunk room all fitted with ample storage.

Amble through the gate from the property to the breath-taking Epping Forest which boasts picturesque walking and cycling routes as well as a myriad of other outdoor activities including horse riding, rambling, golf, and orienteering; there's something for everyone!

Next to the lodge is Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge, a Tudor Hunt Stand built in 1543 for King Henry VIII and renovated by order of Queen Elizabeth I as well as The View, Epping Forest’s Visitor Centre and Butler’s Retreat, a Grade II listed Essex Barn.

There is also a Victorian Retreat which now hosts an excellent café serving tea, coffee pastries and hot food to Forest visitors and the Royal Forest public house.

All invite you to enjoy the impressive vista across the centre of the Forest, with its thousands of veteran Oak, Beech, and Hornbeam trees, just as the Tudors did from this spot so long ago.

Chingford Golf Course and Holly Trail Café are just a short walk down the hill, and just a little further the bustling town of Chingford, with a host of shops, restaurants, and an overground station, getting passengers to Liverpool Street in the heart of the City of London, in less than half an hour.

Water sport enthusiasts will be in their element as The Lee Valley white water rafting centre is easily accessible by car.

Surrounding towns including Epping, Buckhurst Hill, Wanstead, and Woodford are all worth visiting as they house high-class restaurants that should be booked in advance.

Hop on the train from Chingford into London to discover a plethora of world-class museums and galleries, endless shows, vibrant nightlife, vast shopping opportunities and tourist attractions for the whole family.

Barn Hoppitt Lodge is an idyllic base for your exploration of the South of England and Epping Forest.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
