Down Hall Country House Hotel

Who doesn’t love time off? You can do what you want, lounge around, go away… and I was lucky enough to stay in a very nice four star country house for a few days. The Down Hall Country House Hotel is a 16th century Tudor house on the Essex/Hertfordshire border. Back in the day it used to belong to the poet Matthew Prior, and was also used as infirmary in the First World War – how very Downton Abbey.

We had cream teas, dinner, long countryside walks… and watched a lot of daytime TV from our suite-sized room. The house even had a crazy fake bookshelf lift with classic novels like ‘The Monograph of Horny Sponges’, and a piano hosting giant wedding albums at the venue (although sadly not Jade Goody’s). I took a few pictures of all the antique vintage treasures around the our weekend pad.
