I just love this conservation area; Ruth Rendell was right when she compared it to parts of Cornwall hence its nickname 'Little Cornwall'. The area is characterised by steep hills, weather boarded houses, narrow lanes and high holly hedges.

Local information

  • The house is situated in an area of Loughton known by locals as ‘Little Cornwall'. Author Ruth Rendell used Epping Forest and Loughton as a setting for some of her fiction and the name ‘Little Cornwall' is mentioned in her novel ‘The Face of Trespass'. The area is characterised by steep hills, weather boarded houses, narrow lanes and high holly hedges.
  • Residents of 'Little Cornwall' will testify that it is one of the best places to live in Loughton. Whether it's ‘up the hill' for refreshment at The Gardener's Arms or ‘down the hill' to the town centre, you're never far away from amenities.
  • The town centre is a short distance away of only 0.3 miles making the house superbly situated for everyday shopping and conveniences. Amenities include independent boutiques and beauty salons, restaurants and bars, supermarkets and coffee shops. The Ginger Pig butchers and Gail's bakery are a few of the ‘go to' haunts.
  • Commuters are well served by the Central Line tube station and motorists by the close proximity of the M25 and M11.
  • The ancient Epping Forest is virtually on the doorstep and offers a vast area for outdoor exercise and dog walking. In addition there are three leisure centres nearby. Loughton Leisure Centre is 0.4 miles, David Lloyd is 3.7 miles and Virgin Active, Repton Park is 6.5 miles.
