Christina and Andrew Metcalfe talk about their experiences of owning Downham Hall in Downham, Billericay:
We bought Downham Hall in 2017 with a plan to merge the two semi-detached properties, regenerate the grounds and go on an adventure! Several years of hard work later, we have come a very long way and continue in our passion to create a destination for unforgettable occasions.
Nestled in the rolling hills of Essex, our family-run boutique hotel is full of history and style, with a healthy pinch of countryside charm.
Tucked away inside, you’ll find 5 luxurious bedrooms, perfect for every kind of stay, and a restaurant focused on fabulous seasonal flavors.
Open to all Wednesday-Sunday, our intimate eatery showcases the finest local produce that our Chefs can get their hands on, expertly transformed into an ever evolving menu of incredible dishes.
Delicious food and friendly service is the focus across everything that we do and we are very proud of our restaurant, perfect for every occasion from casual breakfasts and relaxed lunches to indulgent afternoon teas and delicious evening dinners.
We are also very fortunate to have been able to create a series of elegant event spaces both inside and out, all with unparalleled views of the Essex countryside. At Downham Hall we love nothing more than creating bespoke events for every occasion, from intimate family dinner parties, corporate retreats, and beautiful celebrations of life for loved ones, to unforgettable parties and picture perfect, dream wedding days. We have a truly dedicated team that work tirelessly to create the perfect setting for all of life’s special occasions.
