Purleigh Barns Farm, Cold Norton Rd, Latchingdon, Nr Chelmsford, Essex. CM3 6NS

Here on the farm we have the well-known LADS theatre which regularly holds plays in our own Tractor Shed theatre and in the summer we have show jumping right in front of the house! With many events going on around us we are ideally situated for the overnight stay, weekend break or a longer stay. Here are some of the websites and events held locally for your interest:
