We have just had an amazing time at Prested Hall, celebrating my sisters wedding. The staff were wonderful, especially Gemma and Emily, the event organisers. We stayed overnight in the attic suite which was lovely. Thankyou for a memorable stay

We will be staying for a night in January. Are there nice walks to do from the hotel do we need maps.
The ground are extensive, so good to walk. You could walk into Kelvedon/Feering, simple walk but nothing too exciting. If you want to leave the grounds and go elsewhere you will need to drive. Just look at the area on G- maps and you will get an idea.

"The room we were originally allocated has rather awkward access for guests with impaired mobility. “Upgrades” are possible."
"Ask for a room with soundproofing"
"I think all the rooms have views of the extensive grounds. There are self catering apartments available also at the adjacent spa centre."
"A few rooms are in the arttic so don't go for them if unable to go up extra stairs than you need."
"Rooms at the rear have views over the lake and at the front, over the grounds so all equally good."
US$118 - US$225 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
