Wivenhoe House is opening soon...

We've missed you!

We’ve missed you…
Our beautiful hotel has been closed for almost two months, with not a guest in sight. Although our doors have been closed, the team here at the hotel have been busy behind the scenes thinking of new, innovative ways we can re-open when it is safe to do so and operate in a way which keeps our guests and staff as safe as possible.
We are so excited to share some of our ideas with you and look forward to welcoming you all back soon!
Brand new takeaways coming soon…
We are currently planning a full takeaway operation, which we are very excited to share with you all soon.
This may include, fresh stone baked pizzas, three-course gourmet meals to make at home, and our famous afternoon teas!
Alfresco Dining…
With a new menu launch and balmy evenings set to continue, outside dining with distanced tables is a great way to enjoy your meal in safety this summer, whilst surrounded by our stunning views and parkland.
Bookings available from Monday 13th July.

Whether approaching Wivenhoe House from London and the South or Ipswich and the North via the A12, take the exit marked Colchester (A133). Follow the A133 towards Clacton, ignore the entrance to the Knowledge Gateway, continue along the A133 then take the B1028 for Wivenhoe before turning right into Boundary Road, then right again into Park Road. The entrance for Wivenhoe House is shared with the University of Essex but Park Road leads you through Wivenhoe Park and you will be able to see the glorious house from the road.
