Alresford (/ˈɒlsfərd/ or /ˈeɪlsfərd/) is a village and electoral ward in Essex, England. It is located 9 km (5.6 mi) southeast of Colchester and is 39 km (24 mi) northeast from the county town of Chelmsford. The village is in the district of Tendring and in the parliamentary constituency of North Essex. As Alresford has expanded towards the B1027 it has effectively subsumed the hamlet of Elmstead Row.
The Swan Hotel: from the middle of the 18th century, the Swan was the principal coaching inn of the town. This Grade II listed building now offers 23 well appointed en-suite bedrooms. #visitWinchester #Winchester #hotel
Located just outside of the historical city of Winchester, Alresford is a pretty town with plenty to offer. Not only is it the capital for watercress growing within the country, it is also home to its own steam railway known as the Watercress Line. The town centre consists of two parts 'old' and 'new.' There are a variety of local boutique shops and well established eateries including The Globe, peacefully located opposite a 12th century pond.
