Get Organised And Take Advantage Of Our Advanced Purchase Rate!

As the nights draw in, it often begins to feel like there are fewer hours in the day so to help, we thought we’d share this fab piece on the benefits of being organised, particularly when it comes to saving money at Marygreen Manor; but we’ll get to that one a little later!

  1. Stress Less: Let’s face it, we all work hard for our money. In today’s rat race and with the advancements in media devices, we’re never really “off the clock”. From emails to phone calls and having to answer social media inquiries at all times of the day, it’s hard to actually switch off. Getting yourself organised however, making a concerted effort to keep your office tidy, answer social media inquiries for 10 minutes at the beginning of the day etc. will ensure your stress levels remain at a low.
  2. Make More Time To Relax: It’s amazing just how much of a positive effect that relaxing can actually have on you. By taking that time out to relax and “smell the roses” as it were, you’ll b surprised at just how revitalised you feel, giving you energy to attack those things on your do-to list with a new vigour you never knew you had. Let’s not forget, less time spent running around and procrastinating means more time to relax…what’s the opposite of a vicious circle? A happy circle?
  3. Spend More Time With Family: Getting yourself clean and clear professionally means you’ll have far more time to those you love the most. Whether it’s your children, your partner, your siblings or your parents, getting yourself organised in your work life, makes family time much easier to achieve on a regular basis.
  4. Get Ready For Those Curve Balls: Life is never short of a curve ball or two and they always seem to come at the most unwanted of times. Being more organised however, means that not only will you be in too stressed a state to handle it but you’ll find yourself dealing with it in a much better way. Being more organised gives you the time and the headspace to handle things with ease. The overwhelming suddenly becomes manageable despite however you may have handled things before. Whether it’s work life or family life, everything suddenly becomes much easier and let’s face it, who doesn’t want that?
  5. Better Health: With lower stress levels, more time to relax and a better ability to manage those curveballs, you’ll find your health will most certainly benefit. Study after study has shown a direct correlation between lower stress levels and better health so if that isn’t enough to convince you to get more organised, we’re not sure what is. Well actually, we have one extra thing that we think might convince you…
  6. Save Money: We all know only too well that staying organised can help you save money by avoiding things such as late payments but did you know it could also help you save money by allowing you to take advantage of our Advance Purchase Rate. That’s right, by booking one of our rooms here at Marygreen Manor more than 30 days in advance, you can enjoy 10% off of our best available rate. To obtain this discount, full payment will need to be taken at the time of booking.

With more family time, less stress, more relaxation and a discount on our best rates here at Marygreen Manor, we’d say there’s never been a better reason not to get more organised. To book yourself a room, simply book online today!

The Marygreen Manor Guide To Easter In Essex

Easter In Essex

Easter In Essex

Easter weekend will soon be upon us and what better way to spend it than by exploring Essex, as well as the local area surrounding Marygreen Manor, and all it has to offer. There are a number of events going on, some have even been taking place since the very beginning of April to get everyone in the mood for Easter and here, to make things easier for you, is the Marygreen Manor top pick!

First up, we have the fabulous Easter Egg Hunt at the Abberton Reservoir Visitor Centre in Colchester. This looks set to be a fun session for all the family where you and the little ones get to explore the nature reserve through an eggciting (see what we did there) Easter egg hunt through the reservoir. The Easter bunny has been extra kind and left a few goodies for the little ones to find, guaranteed to keep them occupied while you take in the beautiful scenery. Running from 10:30am to 3pm, we advise you give them a call beforehand to make sure there’s a space available.

Colchester it would seem is the hub of Easter Egg Hunts with the Beth Chatto Gardens Easter egg hunt too in Elmstead Market. For those who simply love their gardening and flowers, this could be the perfect location giving you a chance to take in the beautiful gardens and enjoy the spring blooms while the little ones (or the not so little ones) go off in search of chocolate. With adults costing £6.95 and children a mere £1.50 or free if you book online before you arrive, it’s one you can’t afford to miss.

Last but most certainly not least we’ve got the fabulous Hopefield Animal Sanctuary who’ll be hosting their very own Easter egg hunt which promises not only fabulous chocolate for the kids but an array of stalls, inflatables, live music, animal handling and even the amazing Crazy Legs providing entertainment just for the kids. We think it’s safe to say, Easter in Essex looks set to be super exciting for the kids (and big kids) of the family.

Enjoy Complete Privacy With Our Private Celebrations!

Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary or even a work function, celebrating a special occasion is always an exciting prospect. It’s all about making that special someone or “someone’s” should we say, feel that little extra bit special.

Here at Marygreen Manor, we want to make your special occasion one to remember with our option for private celebrations. Let’s face it; while celebrating a special occasion is of course exciting, it also comes with a certain amount of anxiety too. There’s so much pressure to get everything right for the person in question but also for the number of guests attending too. Thankfully, with our help, that pressure’s lifted.

Whether you’re looking for an intimate, low key celebration with an Afternoon Tea or you’re after something more lively, perhaps with a buffet and awesome live music, we’ve got the perfect venue for you. From our light and airy conservatory to our larger suites complete with original Tudor features, private bar and ensuite facilities. We’ve got just what you need for the exact night you’d like to plan.

Aside from our great facilities, it’s also worth nothing that our location makes it super easy for guests to attend. We’re literally minutes from the M25, the A12 and Brentwood Mainline Station, making it an easily accessible venue. Add to this the fact that we have a dedicated team of professionals just ready and waiting to offer advice and assistance when it comes to your special occasion and you couldn’t find a more perfect venue. So what are you waiting for?

Spoil Mum This Mother’s Day At Marygreen Manor

Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away now and while we’d all love to have the time to organise the perfect day from scratch, sometimes, life just gets in the way. That’s why we thought we’d make it easy for you by giving you the Marygreen Manor guide to the perfect Mother’s Day, from the minute she wakes up to the minute she goes to sleep!

Breakfast – this is the first part of the day and as such, perfect for setting the tone for the rest of the day. Make her feel spoilt by surprising her with either breakfast in bed, or, if she’s a bit of a neat freak, have a beautiful breakfast laid out waiting for her as she walks to the dining table. Whether it’s a full on spread or simply a bowl of her favourite cereals, just having it ready and waiting for her will be a lovely gesture.

The Gift – while it’s always the thought that counts, getting Mum a truly fabulous gift will always go down well. Nothing says I love you more than a nice piece of jewellery. Something that sparkles will always go down well, oh and don’t forget the flowers guys.

The Dinner – luckily for you, here at Marygreen Manor, we’re hosting a special Mother’s Day Lunch at just £23 per person. Not only do you get the grandeur of our sensational Tudor Restaurant but you also get to treat Mum (and yourself) to the finest dining experience in Essex. What could be better?

The Getaway – now while a delicious Mother’s Day Lunch could be considered the icing on the cake, here at Marygreen Manor, we say you need to add a little cherry on top and that cherry comes in the form of a nights stay in our luxury accommodation that comes complete with a full breakfast the next morning.

Now if that’s not the best Mother’s Day treat you’ve ever heard of, we don’t know what is! Call us today on 01277 225252 or email us at for more info!

Don’t Be A Plonker All Your Life!


Let’s face it, who didn’t laugh uncontrollably at Rodney and Del when the chandelier fell, smashing to pieces? Or that time when Del fell through the bar or the brothers crashed a funeral wake dressed as Batman and Robin. Even those who wouldn’t consider themselves fans of Only Fools and Horses would find it difficult to a) not recall the comedic moments and b) tell you they didn’t find it funny. Whether you’re happy to admit it or not, the show was a real winner and just one of those that managed to make the majority of the population laugh out loud on a weekly basis for years.

The end of the show itself saw millions feeling lost and for the years since the show ceased, we’ve watched repeat after repeat, finding ourselves laughing just as much as we did all those years ago. Through generations within our families we hear the familiar tones of “lovely jubilee” and “don’t be a plonker Rodney”. It doesn’t seem to matter how many times we’ve watched it either, because it just never gets old. Two wheeler-dealer brothers scraping by selling dodgy goods, while spouting the famous line of “this time next year, we’ll be millionaires”.

As we all know, the gold hearted brothers eventually made it through the help of an old vintage pocket watch but that wasn’t before a few close encounters with good fortune, usually ending with one wally or another making some sort of mistake. Living in Peckham and driving what’s now become an iconic three wheeled van, or the yellow peril as it’s now know, the Trotter brothers were loved and adored by all.

While the Trotter brothers are of course the main men, we can’t forget the rest of the cast either from Trigger to Denzil, Boycie to Marlene and even good old Mickey Pearce. Each and every character adds a little special something to every single episode and come together to create one of the most well known and probably well loved casts of British TV.

It makes every sense then that an evening’s entertainment consisting of your favourite characters from your favourite TV show would make a rather exciting evening – and that’s exactly what we’re offering here at the Marygeen Manor. On the 10th March 2017, we’ll be hosting one of our famous Only Fools and Horses comedy events. Beginning at 7pm sharp, you’ll be presented with a drink and taken to your table where you’ll enjoy a delicious three course meal, all the while being entertained by the amazing cast of Cut Productions. This is seriously an evening of fun and laughter you just won’t want to miss. It’s somewhat of an interactive evening too where you’ll find yourself dining in Del Boy’s very own restaurant, no doubt in a bid for him to become that millionaire once again.

This tribute night will feature all of your favourite bits from the hit TV show, some of which we’ve already mentioned from THAT Batman and Robin scene to the equally brilliant Tony Angelino and his rendition of “Cwying”. From blow up dolls to all of Del Boy’s hooky gear, not one moment of the show will be missed. You’ll also run into Rodney on the run, Damien, trigger and even the lovely Uncle Albert who’s desperate to sing his favourite songs. Anyone would think you were in the Nag’s Head. This particular night would suit groups of 4 and above so gather your friends and make a night of it. At just £49.50 per person too, especially when you consider the fine dining experience that’s included, it’s an offer you won’t want to pass up.

To book your table, just call 01277 225252 now!
