An individual interesting and well run Country House with restaurant, or Guest House/Restaurant with rooms, perfect for an informal but special get together, great food, wine and service, gorgeous house with attentive owners, and the added interest of all the art courses, with lots of examples of work around the house. Great value for money in every way, can't wait... More

Any history and art lover will love Dedham Hall. The building itself has a huge amount of old world character and every wall displays beautiful artworks. On the whole the guest house offered a very homely atmosphere and the welcome afternoon tea was delicious and greatly appreciated. Meals in the restaurant were of a high quality but also quite expensive.... More

We stayed here when visiting friends in Essex. It's down a small country lane in a picturesque village. The hotel incorporates an art class/school so it was busy when we stayed, but very quiet. Great country cooking is all part of the deal.

We were warmly welcomed into a very old farmhouse/countryhouse by a quite relaxed young casually dressed man.You are in someone's country home which is... More

This review is on behalf of my mother and her friend. They enjoyed their stay immensely - excellent service, food and atmosphere. Comfortable, clean rooms with lovely linen. They would highly recommend staying there except for people allergic to cats.

I was attending an event at Milson's La Maison and was looking for a room for one. My friends' (I shall call the Smiths) stayed too. Charming rooms, views, hospitality, super breakfast and immaculately clean. The gardens were so pretty and evidently they do art classes there too. I can only draw stick figures but would consider doing the beginners... More

I teach watercolour courses at Dedham Hall and I am always impressed with the professional management and warm welcome everyone recieves on arrival. The setting is charming and nothing is too much trouble for Wendy and Jim, the owners. The meals are superb. Fabulous breakfasts are hard to resist and the fine evening dining is a real treat.
