The 4* Stoke by Nayland Hotel has been provisionally booked on the basis of 4 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. The hotel is located in a countryside setting in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 10 miles from the centre of Colchester. Facilities at the hotel include a restaurant, bar, spa with swimming pool, gymnasium, sauna, steam room and a Jacuzzi and two golf courses! All rooms are en suite and feature television, telephone, hairdryer. A double room will cost £599.00 per person, for single occupants there is an additional £99.00 supplement. Lunches, holiday insurance and gratuities are also not included.
We have agreed a full programme of excursions which will appeal to both garden lovers and art enthusiasts and the cost of the holiday includes entry to all the gardens, excluding Ickworth (which will be free to National Trust members) and the services of a blue badge guide for 3 days.
