We were delighted to receive some great reviews of the Milsom Hotels & Restaurants properties in the travel section of the Telegraph on Sunday this week.

Maison Talbooth, The Pier at Harwich and milsoms in Dedham are all cited as great places to stay or eat when exploring the Essex countryside.

Telegraph motoring writer David Williams describes the Essex landscape during his 130-mile as “so bewitching it’s hard keeping your eyes on the narrow, twisting, tree-lined roads at the best of times.”

Discover why David described the view from Maison Talbooth as equal to any captured on canvas by famous Dedham artist John Constable, and read about his fabulous experience at The Pier hotel on the Harwich harbourside.
