Colchester is the attractive setting for some quality new Bovis Homes. A place rich in history and tradition, Colchester is Britain's oldest recorded town and is located within the exciting and diverse county of Essex. With monuments and artefacts going back to Celtic times but more famous for its Roman connections, new Colchester homeowners will find it a fascinating place to explore, with Colchester Castle at its heart. But 21st century Colchester is very much on the rise, with a growing population bringing with it more facilities and variety for new homeowners. With London only 60 miles away via the A12 or Great Eastern mainline and Stanstead Airport only 30 miles away, Colchester is superbly located for travelling and commuting.
