There are lots of pretty villages around - see Thaxted , Finchingfield , Castle Hedingham and Coggeshall for examples. The Castle at Castle Hedingham is definitely worth a visit - one of the most impressive and intact Norman keeps around.
Also close by is Colchester that has a wealth of history as arguably Britain's oldest town, with origins well before the Roman era. There are Roman remains and the museum in Colchester Castle another massive Norman keep is excellent. The countryside immediately around Halstead is green and rolling with the valleys of the rivers particularly the Colne and Stour opening out as they head towards the sea, and then they reach the sea in a series of creeks and sunken valleys.
The most famous of these landscapes is the "Constable Country" of Dedham Vale around the villages of Dedham and East Bergholt and it is lovely.
Personally I'm very fond of the Stour valley slightly further upstream between Sudbury and Nayland. It's much quieter and some of the villages and lanes feel like the land that time forgot.
The Suffolk "wool country" is also easily reached from Halstead - again it's pretty villages and timeless countryside that's the draw, and generally the further into Suffolk you get, the more timeless it becomes as there is less and less commuter influence on the way people live. I was wondering 'why Halstead' too.
I grew up in the area and it's really lovely but as Pintpot says, well off the tourist trail and none the worse for that! You'll need a car to get around. Don't miss Lavenham and Long Melford - beautiful old villages with lots of lovely houses and the signature huge churches built on the proceeds of the very lucrative medieval wool trade. There's also Kersey too - the material 'kersey' is mentioned in Shakespeare and the windows of the older houses are huge to let as much light in as possible - a relic from when weavers worked at home.
Your suggestions sound great, we've been to London are there any other areas that would be worth a visit even if it requires an overnite stay. If you want to do some touring around then I'd recommend heading further into East Anglia the Eastern counties of England , generally reckoned to be Norfolk , Suffolk , Cambridgeshire and much of Essex.
It's a unique place, very different from much of southern England IMO, but doesn't apart from a few spots get much in the way of tourism. Geography is the reason for both of these things: Take a look at a map and you'll see very quickly that the eastern counties aren't on the way to anywhere as they project out into the North Sea. Hence they are off the beaten path for tourists, since you can't pass through it to go anywhere else, and likewise much less impacted by historical industrialism or present-day commuting for the same reasons.
The landscape is beautiful in many places but rarely spectacular; all the counties are quite low-lying, there are no mountains or waterfalls here, but there is a lot of lovely green, quintessentially English countryside, dotted with pretty villages and small market towns. There's also for southern England especially an awful lot of space which feels quite refreshing.
It's England's "big sky country". The coastline is particularly beautiful up in Suffolk - look around Southwold , Aldeburgh and the ancient drowned city of Dunwich - and in north Norfolk, where you'll find little fishing ports like Wells and wide open sandy beaches.
Inland it's that rolling farming country and the wetlands of the Broads to visit. There are large ancient towns at Colchester and especially more to see these days at Norwich and of course Cambridge.
Stunning cathedrals at Norwich and Ely. Lots of bustling market towns, many of them with a wealth of history, like Bury St Edmunds ; and scores of chocolate-box villages. Most of these are easy day trips from the Halstead area; if you're heading up to North Norfolk you might want to make an overnight stop as it's pushing 2 hours to get there by car.
You will need a car , by the way. This is a very rural area and public transport is limited. Not really, no. You will need to go back into London if you want to visit Wales or Scotland. The nearest station to Halstead is Braintree , from where a train to London Liverpool St station will take about an hour.
