Rainy Day Easter Activities

Rainy Day Easter Activities

Rainy Day Easter Activities

It’s never fun being the bearer of bad news but here at Marygreen Manor, we’re never ones to let a little rain get in the way of some family fun. With rain forecast for Easter Sunday, we feel it’s our duty to give you a few ideas of just what you can get up when staying here in our Essex hotel. From indoor Easter egg hunts to a little wine list indulgence, there’s plenty for you to enjoy so sit back, relax and let us inspire you.

Afternoon Tea – whether you’re travelling with younger ones or in a group of adults only, there’s nothing quite like an afternoon tea to turn your rainy day around and here at Marygreen Manor, we’re known throughout Essex for the best Afternoon Tea in Essex. Enjoy cakes, sandwiches and a glass of bubbly (or two) and watch the rain fall from the warmth of our conservatory room.

Indoor Easter Egg Hunt – ok ok, so we know this one’s a little harder when you’re staying in a hotel but our rooms are certainly large enough to create a few hiding spaces so while the rest of your family are enjoying breakfast in our Tudors Restaurant, we suggest you start looking for the best hiding places (under the bed, behind the curtains) and create a few clues to boot. Better yet, turn it into a general knowledge game and quiz the kids to receive a clue. We guarantee some smiles, giggles and a morning of chocolatey fun.

Wine List Indulgence – as well as having a fabulous restaurant, we also boast an award-winning wine list so if you’re away without the children, we suggest you take it as an opportunity to start familiarising yourself with the difference between a pinot noir and a sauvignon blanc.

Whatever you choose to do, here at Marygreen Manor, the best hotel in Essex, we insist you don’t let the weather spoil your time this Easter weekend.

A Traveller’s Rest: A Slice Of Marygreen Manor History

Marygreen Manor Hotel

In 1967 the Moat house, as it was known back then, began its journey to become the Marygreen Manor as we know and love it today. It was during this year that a man named John Bairstow founded the Moat House Hotel Company along with a subsidiary company known as the Moat House Restaurants. Work on creating the “small, luxuriously appointed hotel” began towards the end of 1967. The building work carried out by Brentwood building company A.D Seager Ltd saw the largest amount of construction works and the largest building timber consignment in the area for some years.

The extensions built were essential for the transformation into the Moat House Hotel as the new building comprised the restaurant and the kitchen. This new addition was added to the west end of the old house with the help of a newly constructed reception, lounge and bar area in between. The new building was essentially a conversion of the original coach house and stables and although the standards of construction work and materials were of the day, they didn’t miss a beat when it came to utilising the Abridge barn timbers in a decorative fashion that was in keeping with the style of the old house. Its history most certainly wasn’t forgotten.

Soon after construction work came to a head, it was decided that an emblem would be needed. A man named Ken Kimberly stepped up to the challenge and designed one based on the Tudor rose. It was set amid a scroll that bore the date 1512. Legend would have it that 1512 was the year that the house was appointed a hunting lodge by Henry VIII while under the ownership of Henry Roper.

The Moat House emblem was later erected in plaster on an inside wall of the hotel close to the restaurant’s entrance. This was embellished further with ribboned vine patterns giving it real emphasis.

This was just one of the beginning stages in the transformation to the Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant. If you’d like to find out more you could always delve into the book, “The Place At Brook Street” or better yet, pay the Marygreen Manor a visit and see the history unfold before your eyes in all its original glory.

Good Moaning Friends, Occupiers and Peasants

Will you be joining in the fun here at the Marygreen Manor?

Will you be joining in the fun here at the Marygreen Manor?

Does nobody hear the cries of a poor old woman!? Well, on 6th November you most certainly will when you join us for one of our most famous events here at the Marygreen Manor. While Allo’ Allo’ was famous for its wit and great one liners, our Tudor Manor house is without doubt most famous for serving the finest cuisine in Essex which makes this night a delicious feast of entertainment and splendor.

Thanks to the, as always, fantastic cast of MoneyPenny Productions, you’ll be treated to some of the best comedic acting in which true Allo’ Allo’ fans will no doubt recognise some of the more famous lines. If you aren’t familiar with the show of the 80s, don’t fret because it doesn’t matter which generation you’re a part of, the Allo’ Allo’ humour seems to float seamlessly between generations.

The Allo’ Allo’ Dinner event will begin at 7:00pm and will finish at approximately 10:30pm during which time you’ll be served the finest quality food in Essex from our very own, award winning, Tudor Restaurant. So the question is friends, occupiers and peasants…will you join us for an evening in war-torn France for a truly authentic take on this amazing show that still remains in so many people’s hearts?

What could be better than a three course meal served side by side with three courses of side splitting entertainment? Join Madam Edith as she “entertains” and help René as he wrestles the knackwurst and ultimately help lead the Resistance to rescue our rather hapless airman.

Our event dinners make the ideal night out for groups of four and more, in fact the more the merrier as you’ll all no doubt find yourself getting more and more involved with the production. What could be better than an evening of quality entertainment and food? Well, perhaps the price at just £49.50 per person. A £25 deposit is required for each person upon booking although we advise booking early in order to avoid disappointment. This fantastic evening of fun and frolics gets booked up quite quickly.

Rest Up And Prepare Perfectly For The Brentwood Half Marathon

runners in a race

Give it your all after a great nights sleep and quality fuel from the kitchen

In just under two weeks on the 22nd March 2015, residents and visitors of Brentwood will be lining the streets in order to cheer on the adventurous souls taking part in the 34th annual Brentwood Half Marathon. Having raised well over £1.7 million for local, national and even international charities, it’s no wonder this has become such a popular event. It’s so popular in fact that runners from all over the UK radiate toward our lovely county of Essex in order to take part.


Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first timer looking to make an impression, race day preparation is hugely important. One particular aspect that often gets overlooked is rest and quality accommodation. In an attempt to keep costs down and travel on the day to a minimum, many runners simply book the cheapest and closest hotel they can find. This usually results in a bad nights sleep and a much longer finish time than they first anticipated.


It doesn’t matter if you’re competing in the half marathon or the three mile fun run that runs alongside the main event, being fresh and ready for the strenuous exercise ahead is hugely important. This is why we think there’s no better place to rest up and prepare than our very own Marygreen Manor Hotel. Here you’ll be able to indulge the night before and the morning of the race, in high quality dining that’s guaranteed to give you the fuel you need to get around the course with energy to spare. More importantly however you’ll also be able to enjoy the creature comforts within our luxury rooms and suites that offer the best nights sleep you’ll find this side of Essex.


With a dream like sleep the night before and the perfect mix of carbs and protein from our award-winning kitchen, we know you’ll be pumped and ready for the challenge ahead. Located at the Becket Keys Church Of England along Sawyers Hall Lane, our stunning manor house is a mere five minute cab ride away…or a thirty minute run depending on how brave you’re feeling of course.
