With its breath-taking position overlooking the Dedham Vale and Constable Country, this superb Victorian country house hotel offers all that is needed for a relaxing break. Maison Talbooth has twelve delightful bedrooms, all individual in style and character with the principal suites boasting private terraces for a relaxed breakfast in the sunshine (maybe!).
Maison Talbooth is also proud to be the founder member of Pride of Britain Hotels, a consortium of some 40 privately owned hotels in Great Britain. The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, soft drinks in the mini bar, REN products and free parking as standard.
The pool house with outdoor swimming pool, hot tub and log burning fire under a covered stoop offers pure relaxation all year round. The pool is heated to a steamy 85˚all year round enabling guests to enjoy swimming even in the depths of winter! To complete the picture a tennis court is set on high ground with amazing views over the valley. Guests can pamper themselves in the Treatment Rooms; the hotel’s day spa offers a variety of treatments for mind, body and soul.
Dining at Le Talbooth, a minute away be courtesy car is the highlight of any stay in Dedham. Justifiably the flagship of Milsom Hotels, Le Talbooth sits in an enviable position beside the river Stour, the restaurant offers great food, wine and service. The terrace beside the river is covered by a huge architectural sail allowing diners to eat outside whatever the weather. In the winter, the restaurant takes on a different intimate atmosphere with log fires and beams. Light lunches and ‘proper’ afternoon teas are available throughout the day in the Garden Room at the hotel, particularly delightful in the summer when you can sit on the terrace and admire the far reaching views.
There’s also a lot to do and see in the surrounding area from Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town to the Suffolk Heritage Coast just an hour away. The Munning’s Collection at Castle House in the village is well is well worth a visit, so too the various National Trust properties and the Gainsborough Museum in Sudbury.
