Inspirational country house hotel in Colchester, Essex
England is alive with glorious country house hotels. They pepper ‘this sceptr’d isle’ like jewels in a crown. Wivenhoe House, once painted by Constable, stands proudly among them, a magnificently restored 18th century Essex country house with a wealth of mercantile history between its walls.
But Wivenhoe House stands apart, too. Deliciously different, it comes with signature dishes donated by some of the country’s leading chefs, a team of butlers anticipating your every need and a contemporary garden wing with brasserie that sits in contrast to the meticulously renovated old house.
Wivenhoe House bristles with innovative ideas from the fertile minds of the young managers because this is also the home of the Edge Hotel School, which is a unique concept, not only in Essex but in the UK, for nurturing new hotel talent.
Being passionate about great service, our ethos is to provide our guests with an intriguingly different experience. The perfect venue in Essex for a short break, corporate event, function or country house wedding, Wivenhoe House will make you comfortable. But it will make you think, too. We look forward to welcoming you.
