Dedham Hall is a family run Guest House set in 6 acres of fields and gardens in the heart of Constable Country. Set back from the road at the end of Dedham High Street it is a 2 minute walk into the centre of the beautiful and historic village or a 20 minute walk along the river Stour to Flatford Mill immortalised by John Constable. Castle House home of Sir Alfred Munnings, president of the Royal Academy is just a short walk away. Visitors can dine in our restaurant. We have an ever changing table d'hote menu. At Dedham Hall we run painting holidays with a world famous group of tutors.

This place is a gem. We arrived after a 15 mile walk in the pouring rain and it couldn't have been better. Our room was lovely; there was a fire in the sitting room where I roasted chestnuts that I'd collected on our walk; we were given tea and cakes, including gluten free
