Surrounded by pretty manicured woodland and tranquil lakes, this 18th-century house is next to the University of Essex campus. It offers a unique brasserie restaurant, luxurious accommodation, free WiFi and free parking on site.
Each en suite room at Wivenhoe House is elegant, stylish, and traditionally furnished. Many boast delightful views of the manicured lawns and wooded parkland, and most rooms feature an iMac computer, HD TV with Sky channels, designer toiletries, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Guests can dine at the Brasserie Restaurant in the garden wing, which offers modern cuisine.
The city centre of Colchester, the oldest recorded town in Britain, is less than 10 minutes’ drive from the building. The surrounding Essex countryside is home to numerous rivers, walks, and charming sights.
