The Tallow Factory - Dedham, Essex, England


The Tallow Factory is a beautiful 16th century timber-framed cottage in the heart of Dedham village. It was featured in a BBC programme on holiday cottages in England. For most of the year it operates as a retreat centre offering bed and breakfast with yoga and meditation. However, the entire house can also be rented for self-catering, pending availability, for weekend rentals and during major holidays.  During school holidays we require a 7 night minimum booking and it is the perfect place for Christmas or New Year celebrations.

The historic village of Dedham lies on the Essex-Suffolk border surrounded by miles of unspoilt countryside.

The downstairs entrance reception leads to a spacious dining/ living room with TV (BT Youview, Apple TV, Google Chromecast), wireless broadband (bring your own laptop) and instant gas flame fireplace (there is also a comfortable double sofabed for additional guests). There is a bathroom on the same floor and a washer/dryer utility adjoining an overflow worktop with dishwasher that leads into a newly installed kitchen that opens onto the garden, (the kitchen is fully equipped with 5-ring gas stove, convection oven, fridge/freezer and microwave).

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms - one magnificent king bedroom with an en suite bathroom, one sunny queen bedroom with en suite bathroom and a twin bedroom with two single beds that has its own bathroom directly next door) and a two-room suite on the 3rd floor with double bed and two single beds, with 1 family bathroom fitted with bath and shower.
