Connecticut

Litchfield and Essex

Litchfield and Essex are the sort of attractive towns that are regularly pictured on calendars.

A favourite with New York personalities and weekenders is Litchfield. Set in the glorious Litchfield Hills, it has a handsome green lined with grand homes, plus excellent restaurants, antiques shops and inns.

With main streets labelled North, South and West, you’ll never get lost! Near the mouth of the Connecticut River and once voted the ‘best small town in America’, Essex is a real charmer, with its Colonial,

Georgian and Federal architecture, its shipbuilding traditions and a fine museum devoted to the area’s maritime and shipbuilding history.
