Prested Hall

Rated 8.8 in 370 reviews. 14 rooms.


When we came to Prested in 1994, we found a near-derelict house, which had been empty for seven years and was last enjoyed as a family home in 1939.
Mentioned in The Domesday Book (in 1086), it was known as Peresteda. In the very early times Prested Hall was referred to as one of Feering’s “two capital manors”, and by the late 18th century it had become a “mansion-house”, When we arrived, the Hall was a desolate place, its beautiful period features and architectural ironmongery hardly visible through the grime. As we worked, we had a real sense of the renaissance of a house. The oldest part is the Library and room 1 above, which has been dated by English Heritage to the 15th Century. It is, like many houses today, one which has been extended and changed over the years.
We are proud to be taking Prested forward into the next phase of it's life. We look forward to welcoming you and hope that you find the same fascination with Prested as we do.

With contemporary style and comfort within an historic listed country house, this privately owned hotel sits discreetly amid 75 acres of Essex parkland, within 30 minutes of Stansted Airport.

Partially surrounded by a moat, Prested Hall offers 15th and 18th century interiors, stunning Art Nouveau décor and elegant 1930s extensions.

During health club opening hours, adult guests are welcome to use the well-equipped gym. There are also outdoor lawn tennis courts available.
