What's more you can bring along your fur baby if you want to, (one per room only) for an additional supplement of £25.00 per night - limited number of rooms available.

We'll provide your canine friend with their very own bed and cosy blanket, treats and a toy, after all they are one of the family!

You can let them loose within our grounds or opt for a nearby circular walk which can be reached on foot - no need for the car.

There's plenty to explore in the surrounding area and lots of dog-friendly options including Marks Hall Estate just down the round plus Highwoods Country Park on the other side of Colchester.

The lower Castle Park is a beauty spot and with nearby parking an amble alongside the river will bring you to the bottom of town.

The coast is not far, just a 20 minute drive or the island of Mersea and Cudmore National Park is just 15 minutes by car.

And it they get a bit mucky we'll help you hose them down upon your return.
