Stay at Idle Waters Cottage

Located in the heart of the Dedham Vale, this timber framed 16th century cottage is just across the river from Le Talbooth and a tranquil haven for couples looking for self-catered accommodation.

This luxury cottage comprises an open plan fully fitted kitchen and dining area with doors leading out onto the garden, sitting room with bay window overlooking the river Stour, inglenook fireplace and huge leather sofas. Upstairs, the cottage has two delightful bedrooms with views over the river; both rooms have en-suite bathrooms, one with a bath/shower over and the other with a large walk in shower.

Idyllic escape

The cottage is ideal for couples getting married at Le Talbooth or Maison Talbooth, either before or after your wedding day

The hours leading up to your wedding should be totally relaxing. Idle Waters allows you to stay “at home” with your nearest and dearest and have a peaceful night in before the big day, the fabulous kitchen is fully equipped for your cooking needs. Alternatively for those wishing to dine out, Le Talbooth is on the other side of the river Stour, almost in the cottage garden; the award-winning restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. While Milsoms, a contemporary bar and brasserie is just a couple of minutes’ walk away, the restaurant is open all day and with no need to book.

Why not stay at Idle Waters the night of your wedding too? Make it so it’s all about the two of you. We offer a continental breakfast hamper for every couple staying at the cottage which includes a selection of cereals, crusty sourdough bread, croissants with mixed mini gourmandise, tiptree Jam selection, fresh orange juice, English breakfast tea and Nespresso Coffee.
