Essex Life has joined forces with the Milsom Hotels and Restaurants Group to offer Essex Life readers the chance to win an overnight spa break for two at Maison Talbooth

With its breathtaking position overlooking the Dedham Vale and Constable Country, this superb Victorian country house hotel offers a unique getaway close to home. Maison Talbooth, which is part of the Milsom Hotels and Restaurants Group, is justifiably the luxury hotel of the group, making it the perfect venue to step back, relax and indulge at any time of year. The hotel has 12 bedrooms which are carefully furnished with many individual touches such as super comfy king-size beds, complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar, a Sky HD box offering all Sky packages and channels, brand new Samsung HD TVs, luxury REN products in the bathrooms and, of course, free WiFi. Many rooms also have far-reaching views over the vale.

The pool house, with outdoor swimming pool, hot tub and log burning fire under a covered stoop, offers pure relaxation all year round. The pool is heated to a delicious 85˚C all year round, enabling guests to enjoy swimming even in the depths of winter. To complete the picture, a tennis court is set on high ground with amazing views over the valley. Guests can also pamper themselves in the Treatment Rooms while the hotel’s day spa offers a variety of treatments for mind, body and soul.

Dining at Le Talbooth, a minute away by courtesy car, is the highlight of a stay in Dedham. In an enviable situation beside the River Stour, the restaurant offers great food, wine and service. Guests can dine outside on the terrace during the summer under a huge architectural sail, while in

the winter months Le Talbooth takes on a different character with log fires and a wealth of beams.

Included in this stunning prize will be accommodation in a principal room at Maison Talbooth with full breakfast plus a three-course dinner at Le Talbooth (including free choice from the a la carte menu). The winners will also share a Just the Two of Us spa package designed especially for couples. Treatments are enjoyed side by side in a double treatment room with a therapist each. Featured in the package is a special Treatment Room facial, a 25-minute power direct massage and a zen spa deluxe pedicure for each person.
