Spains Hall Estate is a family run business and our holiday cottages have been lovingly renovated to give them a new lease of life.
Spains Hall purchased this cottage in 1949
The Lodges have been part of the Estate since they were built - their heritage is our heritage! The Ruggles-Brise family have lived at Spains Hall since 1768, only the 3rd family to live here since 1086.
Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and this mainly due to the amazing team and surroundings at Spains Hall. We did not want our day to end. Waking up here was incredible, what a beautiful place to have our first breakfast together. Archie, Anna, Helga and Ellie you were all amazing, thank you so much for everything - we will never forget our wedding at Spains Hall.
Wonderful walks in the morning. Enjoyed our Christmas holiday so very much. Lovely cottage. We could not have been more impressed with the cleanliness and the amenities of the cottage. Truly, a home away from home.
Had a lovely time at the north lodge, the lodge it self was lovely and the surrounding area. Would definitely consider coming again. Thank you very much!
A very happy week's holiday and a chance to celebrate two birthdays. Perfect Mediterranean weather climaxed by dramatic thunderstorms. We really enjoyed the beauty of the area. The property's facilities are excellent, we enjoyed very good customer service during the booking process and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this to a friend or relative.
We had a wonderful week staying in North Lodge. It was lovely and clean and very well maintained and equipped.
We walked through the fields into the picturesque village as well as completing the circular walk (details of which were provided). The Picture Pot serves a very good cream tea.
We also enjoyed visiting Coggeshall village and Audley End House.

We can offer day ticket Carp and Tench fishing on the Estate lake just 1/4 mile from the Lodges.
