Clock House Nursery
Gorgeous garden centre next to the grounds of Forty Hall offering top quality plants and seeds. It has free parking outside and is cheaper and not as busy as the other garden centres on popular Crews Hill.

Beautiful grounds to walk around with free admission. The perfect spot for a picnic and you can also go into the hall and learn about the history.

This has to be the prettiest pub in Essex! It's in a lovely quiet spot near Epping Forest and the large garden is fantastic in the summer.

The Gardeners Arms
I love this pub because of it's hilltop position. The views towards London are beautiful and Epping Forest is just round the corner. It has a cosy, traditional atmosphere and it's dog friendly too!

The Olive Tree
This is by far my favourite restaurant in Loughton! Their Mediterranean and Greek food is delicious and it has such a great atmosphere too. It's the perfect place for a get-together or celebration.

It may be part of a chain of restaurants, but they definitely don't compromise on quality. The pizzas are really tasty and even the salads are too!
