Wivenhoe House Hotel


Wivenhoe Park,


Near Colchester's oldest recorded town and at the heart of Constable Country, Wivenhoe House is an elegant 18th century Grade II listed country house hotel set in peaceful parkland and provides an ideal base for exploring the Essex and Suffolk coast and countryside. Wivenhoe House is a little over 50 miles from the 24 hour pulse of London.

Wivenhoe House is a glorious country house hotel that is the perfect setting for overnight stays as well as for meetings and functions, offering guests somewhere to dine, relax, work or rest where attentive staff pay meticulous attention to detail to exceed guest expectations.

Wivenhoe House combines all the modern comforts of an elegant country house hotel with traditional features including fireplaces, comfortable sofas and spacious, airy bedrooms. The main house boasts 16 luxury bedrooms including 9 suites and the contemporary garden wing has a further 24 executive bedrooms. With an abundance of lavish period detail throughout, the grand, sweeping stairs and the perfectly landscaped gardens, Wivenhoe House is ideal for a short break, a celebration with family or friends and is the most romantic of settings for a civil wedding ceremony or reception.

Home to two restaurants which use locally sourced ingredients to deliver culinary delights, Wivenhoe House offers hotel guests and visitors dining in our contemporary brasserie open from noon until 10.00 pm. For an extra special intimate food and wine experience try private dining at the sommelier's table in our wine cellar.
