Fantastic review of Maison Talbooth in Travel we just had to share it with you!

To give you a taster, here’s an excerpt:

‘The boutique hotel is just outside the picturesque market town of Dedham, situated in the heart of ‘Constable Country’, with its rolling hills and lush, green fields. On the day my boyfriend and I arrived, the sun was shining and the sky was blue, making it easy to see how John Constable – the famous Romantic artist – could have become so captivated by the place.

As our car pulled into the driveway and we released our mini-break bag from the boot, I looked up at the imposing country house and its grounds. There were guests lazing on the grass in giant hammocks and families taking afternoon tea on the terrace. A full-size tennis court was over to our left and a curious gated building – which I later discovered was the Pool House – lay invitingly at the end a long gravel path…’
