Beaulieu's rich heritage
Beaulieu, which means “beautiful place” in French, was once the summer residence of King Henry VIII, following his acquisition of the estate in 1517.
Set around the majestic New Hall School, formerly King Henry VIII’s Tudor palace, and its estate parkland, this large-scale development on the outskirts of Chelmsford is conceived as a series of individaully designed neighbourhoods that provide a range of well-designed new homes and connect to the wider landscape and countryside.

Getting from A to B
Chelmsford station is located only three miles away, with a bus servicing the station from Beaulieu to assist residents with their daily commute. The Beaulieu bus timetable has been developed in conjunction with the station timetable – meaning once on the bus, Beaulieu residents can reach London Liverpool Street within an hour. Beaulieu will also benefit from its own train station, connecting to the Eastern mainline, offering direct links into London.
The development is just moments away from the A130, linking you to the A12 in just 10 minutes. Car travel from Beaulieu is set to become even simpler with the creation of a new relief road taking residents directly to junction 19 of the A12. The M25 is also just 18 miles away, making London and beyond all within easy reach.
