The Tallow Factory is a beautiful 16th century timber-framed cottage in the heart of Dedham village. It was featured in a BBC programme on holiday cottages in England. For most of the year it operates as a retreat centre offering bed and breakfast with yoga and meditation. However, the entire house can also be rented for self-catering, pending availability, for weekend rentals and during major holidays.  During school holidays we require a 7 night minimum booking and it is the perfect place for Christmas or New Year celebrations.

The historic village of Dedham lies on the Essex-Suffolk border surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside.

The downstairs entrance reception leads to a spacious dining/ living room with TV (BT Youview, Apple TV, Google Chromecast), wireless broadband (bring your own laptop) and instant gas flame fireplace (there is also a comfortable double sofabed for additional guests). There is a bathroom on the same floor and a washer/dryer utility adjoining an overflow worktop with dishwasher that leads into a newly installed kitchen that opens onto the garden, (the kitchen is fully equipped with 5-ring gas stove, convection oven, fridge/freezer and microwave).

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms - one magnificent king bedroom with an en suite bathroom, one sunny queen bedroom with en suite bathroom and a twin bedroom with two single beds that has its own bathroom directly next door) and a two-room suite on the 3rd floor with double bed and two single beds, with 1 family bathroom fitted with bath and shower.

There is also a magnificent yoga studio with equipment for up to 10 people as well as 20 folding chairs, making it a good space for workshops as well.

Dedham

Dedham has everything you need for the perfect winter holiday surrounded by idyllic unspoiled English countryside. Being in the heart of the village in a tranquil courtyard just across from the historic St. Mary’s church, you are steps away from two world-class gastro pubs, both with open fires, a lovely contemporary cafι and a traditional tearoom. Once you are parked you could spend the week completely car free because we are walking distance from a well-stocked Co-op grocery shop, locally-sourced butchers, pharmacy and lots of gift shops. On Christmas Eve, you can treat yourselves to a delicious meal in the Michelin guide awarded Sun Inn next door and stroll across the High Street for Midnight Mass, which is always welcoming for all to attend. Dedham is a village within the borough of Colchester in northeast Essex, England, situated on the River Stour and on the border of Essex and Suffolk. The nearest town to Dedham is the small market town of Manningtree. Dedham is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, most particularly the Water Meadows along the River Stour, which pass along the northern boundary of the village forming the boundary between the counties of Essex and Suffolk.
