We have mentioned several times in print, in the latest newsletter and to our guests in Dedham that swimming in our outdoor pool at Maison Talbooth is great fun in the winter – even if the temperature outside is struggling to stay above freezing! The temperature in the pool is 85 degrees and the hot tub is a sizzling 95 degrees.

The attached photographs were taken on Sunday 8th February of Paul and Jack having some fun in the pool. The swimming pool, tennis court, hot tub and pool house are open to all Maison hotel guests and also to guests who are enjoying a day spa package.

We’ve a special offer running at Maison Talbooth throughout March which includes dinner at Le Talbooth, overnight accommodation, full English breakfast and a £30 allowance towards the Treatment Rooms for £170.00 per person – what are you waiting for?!
