Sarah Cracknell the lead singer of the band Saint Germaine once said, 'Regardless of whether it's beautiful weather or a bit drizzly, it is really good for your soul.'
This is sort of a phrase that encapsulates the way that the town of Chelmsford and how is melted into the countryside while being a populace town. Chelmsford is the quintessential English town that is filled with a sort of sardonic quaint charm and nearly endless parks and hiking spaces. Located just 30 minutes away from London a stay at any of the hotels in Chelmsford is a bridge between the urban and suburban.
