Lady Nelson Gardens

Thorpe-le-soken

Welcome to Lady Nelson Gardens

Lady Nelson Gardens is a graceful collection of traditionally styled new homes, relishing a high specification internally and externally, consequentially creating homes that stand the test of time.

Each plot is extremely generous, giving substantial driveways and extensive gardens being unique from the average house builder.

The development is situated alongside English Heritage Listed Gardens of the former Thorpe Hall. Thorpe Hall was demolished and rebuilt as the Lifehouse Spa & Hotel. The gardens of Thorpe Hall are a true treasure and were formerly used as a Lady Nelson convalescent home for employees of English Electric. A magical mix of lakes, pools, rock gardens, wild grass areas, rose gardens, sunken gardens, a summer house and lots of places to relax.

Lady Nelson Gardens is one of Tendring’s most desired new neighbourhoods offering a superb collection of 3, 4 & 5 bedroom homes over 2 storeys. Being situated within an established oak tree lined development, nestled within the rolling countryside, this exciting new community is expertly designed for contemporary living

Village Living

Thorpe-le-Soken dates from Saxon times and has a number of historic houses and buildings providing the village with a character distinct from Frinton, Clacton and Walton which developed as seaside resorts. Much of the village has changed relatively little over the last hundred years and the main street is particularly familiar.

Thorpe-le-Soken has a pre-school, Rolph C of E Primary, and Tendring College campus for 11-14s, with the 14-18s campus in Frinton. The Frinton and Walton Pool, and Clacton Leisure Centre offer swimming, racquet sports, and school holiday programmes. For adults Thorpe-le-Soken’s Country Fit Gym hosts activities from Indoor Cycling to FitSteps® Latin and Ballroom fused with fitness moves.

Neighbouring Lifehouse Hotel & Spa – Enter a world of complete serenity in an adults only oasis — the perfect place for some well-deserved pampering and relaxation. Lifehouse Spa & Hotel is a contemporary award winning spa nestled within 12 acres of peaceful English Heritage Listed Gardens, offering luxury treatments, and fine dining.

Vast dining options along Thorpe-le-Soken high street include The Bell Inn which has been awarded two AA Rosettes for culinary excellence, and is now officially considered an AA four-star establishment. The facility, which serves up breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and evening meals, has also just been named as Trip Advisor’s Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best winner with magnificent open fireplace and south-facing terrace. Alternatively enjoy a cocktail at Harry’s Bar and Restaurant or a wholesome meal at the highly regarded Rose and Crown restaurant. You will find Tesco Express and hair salons, pharmacy and local stores in Thorpe-le-Soken, with wider shopping, including Morrisons, Asda and Sainsburys, in Clacton. Village groups range from toddler sessions to choir singing, with Thorpe Sports and Social Club being an entertainment and social hub.

Explore the area all-year round, with a short scenic walk to Thorpe Hall Gardens with its spring snowdrops, summer scents and winter wonderland with frozen lake, to the glorious seafront gardens, golden sands, and high summer’s Carnival and Airshow in Clacton. Golfers will find a links course at Frinton Golf Club, rated 11th in a Top 100 list and at Clacton on-Sea for some of the county’s finest greens. The coast and birdlife are of global importance – head to Hamford Water Nature Reserve or to Horsey Island at low-tide across The Wade from Kirby le-Soken to feel away from it all.

Yet with Thorpe-le-Soken trains direct to London Liverpool Street in 1h 18 minutes, city connectivity is never compromised with a 12 minute walk from the development. The B1033 and B1414 cross in the village, the A133 links to the A120 and A12, Ipswich is 26 miles, and Stansted 50 miles.
