A Mini Summer Staycation Based in the Roman Capital of Colchester

Let's make the most of an English summer in our beloved homeland!

We are proposing a two-night, mid-week break in a characterful 14th century Tudor hotel in Colchester. Easily accessible by train from London Liverpool Street or by car (with free parking) ‘The Rose & Crown’ with its secret garden makes the perfect base for exploring both the town and its surrounds.

Designed specifically for a small group (6-8 people) to avoid crowds and benefit from the fresh air of the Essex/Suffolk countryside, our plan is to meet at the station (or hotel) early on Tuesday afternoon and check in before setting off together to visit world-renowned gardener Beth Chatto’s beautiful gravel gardens. We will then return to the hotel later to enjoy dinner together in the hotel restaurant.

Our itinerary for Wednesday is flexible and could include either an historic art trail along the Colne Valley and/or a wander in Constable country (or perhaps even further afield, if members are willing to car share!). On our return to the hotel Lits will host an early evening tutored wine tasting before enjoying a relaxing end to the day at leisure.

Depending on your commitments on Thursday, our adventures will continue after breakfast - perhaps with a trip to the seaside!?

Cost: £327.00

The price includes: 2 nights bed and breakfast in a double room with single occupancy in the 4* hotel
One evening meal on the first night and one hosted wine tasting on the second night.
