Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf, Spa & Lodges, Colchester

Set in 300 acres of Constable country sits this award-winning and family-owned venue, which has been hosting weddings for more than 45 years. The rural hotel is reached via a long driveway, which passes between the stunning fairways of two championship golf courses. There are 80 en suite bedrooms and a two AA Rosette restaurant.
