One thing which makes Dedham so special is the beautiful river Stour that connects all of our properties. Talbooth Restaurant & Idle Waters situated on the river bank are beautiful places for so many special occasions, and milsoms and Talbooth House & Spa are within easy walking distance. If you can, make time during your stay to explore our serene stretch of River that is relatively quiet.

An excellent way to feel you’ve really escaped into nature when visiting Dedham is to get out onto the water!

If you have your own paddleboards, kayaks or canoes then definitely bring them along for your stay. There are miles of waterways surrounding us to explore.

Alternatively, if you’d like to hire equipment, our partners Outdoor Hire Centre offer a number of local paddlecraft experiences from simple hire-only rates to pick-up & drop-off experiences that can start or end in Dedham.
