Check out this week’s Hotel of the Week: Maison Talbooth – Dedham, Essex 

Overlooking Dedham Vale in Constable country, this handsome Victorian house has a sophisticated interior. Its 12 bedrooms act as the accommodation arm of nearby restaurant Le Talbooth. Both are owned by the Milsom family, who have run the restaurant since 1952 and whose portfolio also includes The Pier at Harwich, Milsoms Kesgrave Hall and Milsoms Dedham. As with all the properties, dogs are welcome. There’s a lightly applied literary theme to the smartly decorated bedrooms, each bearing a poet’s name and stocked with their works. Along with a breakfast room, heated outdoor pool and day spa, there’s the sense of being at a private house party. With its personal service, Maison Talbooth particularly suits groups of friends with an event to celebrate. Breakfast can be served in your room or in the Garden Room, while a courtesy car whisks guests to and from Le Talbooth, a half-timbered building with a film set location on the River Stour. In all, the hotel and restaurant make for a winning combination.

Doubles from £200 B&B
