Ivy Hill

Whether you are searching for the idyllic backdrop to your heavenly wedding, a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, a midweek night out with friends or a flexible venue for your corporate event, you are in the right place.

At Ivy Hill, you will find everything you are looking for, no matter the occasion, all within five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and inside the lovingly converted Victorian country house.

Along with 31 bedrooms providing a luxurious home from home, Ivy Hill also boasts a Lounge and Bar, plus Bartellas, an independently operated restaurant connected to the hotel which is also popular with non-residents.

Pop in for a coffee, light lunch or afternoon tea with friends or simply relax in our welcoming lounge.

While the venue may date back to 1891 and our traditional family values may lay at our core, we are in touch with the latest trends and can bring your most unique and stylish event to reality.

Indeed, we can literally move walls to ensure our rooms suit you, with the Margaretting Suite, Ingatestone Room and Ivy Suite all able to be connected or separated depending on guest numbers and event requirements.

Not only are we completely flexible to your needs, but Ivy Hill Hotel is ideally located just off of the A12 in Margaretting, between Chelmsford and Brentwood, with easy access to the M25 and Stansted Airport.

If you are visiting us via train, the nearest train stations are Ingatestone, Shenfield and Chelmsford.

Ivy Hill Full Afternoon Tea

To dine in one of our Domes, there is a £20.00* per Dome hire charge which is taken at the time of booking.

Bookings are on a first come, first served basis and each Dome can sit up to a maximum of 8 guests.

Children aged 3 and above are welcome. Due to the design & size limitations of the Dome entrance, it is not reasonably practical to accommodate a wheelchair or pushchair. Further *T&Cs apply. Hire charges may vary on key dates i.e. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas season etc.

Although our Domes are heated, it can be quite crisp, so please remember to wrap up warm and bring your own blankets if you wish.
