Rural Essex is filled with winding routes through green hedges, and you can feel like you're venturing into the middle of the countryside. One quaint Essex village is set out in the middle of nowhere - but thanks to excellent transport links, you can commute to anywhere.

If you're never been to Good Easter, it's about six miles from Chelmsford and just close enough to the A1060 to mean you can pop straight onto the A1250 in Bishop's Stortford. It's been around since the 11th Century in some form, and still bears the hallmarks of a historic settlement.

The St Andrew parish church dates to 1538 and it boasts schools and pubs. Its sister village, High Easter, lies to the north of Good Easter.
