Overlooking Dedham Vale in Constable country, Talbooth House & Spa (formerly Maison Talbooth) is celebrating a new chapter. This handsome Victorian house is still a super sophisticated place to stay but, now, thanks to its spanking new spa facility (complete with lovely Elemis products), the hotel will be very much spa-led, a place where you can step back, relax and indulge. Its 12 smartly-decorated literary-themed bedrooms act as the accommodation arm of their nearby restaurant, which has had a subtle refresh too and is now called Talbooth Restaurant. Both are owned by the Milsom family, who have run the restaurant since 1952, and whose portfolio also includes The Pier at Harwich, Milsoms Dedham and Milsoms Kesgrave Hall. As with all their properties, dogs are welcome to stay. Breakfast can be served in your room or at Milsoms Dedham, while a courtesy car whisks guests to and from the restaurants, a half-timbered building with a film set location on the River Stour. In all, the hotel, spa and restaurant make for a winning combination.
