Saffron Lodge is a delightful development of 31 one and two bedroom apartments situated in the picturesque town of Saffron Walden.
Inspiration for the name comes from the saffron crocus flower which was widely grown in the area in the 16th and 17th century, and influenced the name change of the town from Chipping Walden to Saffron Walden.
Located on Radwinter Road, Saffron Lodge is situated within easy reach of the town centre which includes a market place as well as many independent shops and eateries.
At the heart of the town lies St. Mary the Virgin Church, the largest parish church in Essex, as well as the Saffron Walden Museum located in the grounds of the Walden Castle ruins dating back to the 12th Century.
