Create an event to remember, with exclusive use of Talbooth House & Spa for your own special occasion, with a special offer for Winter

Located in the heart of the Dedham Vale, you can take over this splendid country house hotel for yourself and friends, family or colleagues and enjoy the facilities.

Not only will you have all 12 bedrooms reserved for your party, but you can also use the lounge area, the garden room, heated outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, or enjoy a knock-about on the tennis court with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There will be welcome drinks, a pre-dinner reception, and a three-course dinner including half a bottle of wine per person, not to mention breakfast to enjoy after a relaxing night’s sleep in our comfortable king-size beds.


Exclusive house parties, perfect for any occasion.

  • Christmas parties
  • Landmark birthdays
  • Weddings and special anniversaries
  • Corporate events and retreats
  • Reunions
  • Club gatherings
  • And any other excuse for a get together!


Your exclusive house party begins when you arrive in the beautiful surroundings. You’ll be greeted by our dedicated team who can check you in and assist with your bags quickly and easily so you can begin enjoying the celebrations. Admire the breathtaking views of the surrounding Constable Country.

Pool, Tennis & More

One of the best things about our Talbooth House & Spa house parties is the freedom to enjoy your party, your way. Unwind with a dip in the heated outdoor pool or sink beneath the bubbles of the hot tub. If you’re looking for something a little more energetic, enjoy a knockabout on the tennis court or pop on your walking boots and explore the countryside. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to work up a thirst, so visit the honesty bar in the pool house, or take advantage of the lounge drinks service.

For an extra charge, you can add exclusive use of the spa to create the perfect relaxing environment and entitles your guests to 30% off listed treatment prices.

Dinner & Drinks

The party really gets underway when you gather together to enjoy an evening reception before dinner. Catch up with friends, family and colleagues over a glass or two of fizz before sitting down to enjoy a specially prepared three-course meal accompanied by paired wines. You’ll have received a copy of the menu in advance of your party so you won’t even have to worry about what to choose on the night. When the wining and dining is over, head to the lounge for a nightcap from the inclusive bar. When you’re ready to call it a night, you’ll find a luxurious bedroom awaits – but it’s completely up to you what time you decide to retire.

Great Night & Good Morning

There’s nothing quite like sinking into a comfortable and luxurious bed at the end of the day. There are 12 uniquely designed bedrooms at Talbooth House & Spa and with an exclusive house party, they’re all yours! Make the most of fluffy robes, Elemis products and complimentary soft drinks, snacks and treats in your room before settling down for the night. And don’t forget, continental breakfast can be brought to your room in the morning to help ensure you’re feeling fully energised for the journey home.
