The main house boasts 16 luxury bedrooms and the contemporary garden wing has a further 24 executive bedrooms. With an abundance of lavish period detail throughout, the grand, sweeping stairs and the perfectly landscaped gardens, Wivenhoe House is ideal for a short break, a celebration with family or friends and is the most romantic of settings for a civil wedding ceremony or reception.

Home to the brasserie bar & restaurant which uses locally sourced ingredients to deliver culinary delights.
