Rest Up And Prepare Perfectly For The Brentwood Half Marathon

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.

Could Fine Dining Be Healthier For You?

Simply sublime

Here at Marygreen Manor Hotel and Restaurant we have a theory about fine dining; we believe that it’s not only the best way to dine out but the healthiest too. It’s actually not that far fetched an idea either considering you eat slower and have smaller portions too. When you eat at your local Indian restaurant or maybe even a fast food chain we bet you leave feeling like you need to be rolled to your car. People often indulge themselves to the point of feeling hugely uncomfortable even though the quality of food was perhaps substandard. When you choose fine dining such from somewhere like our Tudor Restaurant however, you leave feeling comfortably full. Ironic considering it often consists of three completely different courses. The trick here is in the portion sizes and the fact that there is always a small pause between courses. This gives your digestive system a chance to work and your brain a chance to tell you that you’re full up.


Another benefit of fine dining is the variety of food groups you’ll consume within one evening. Eating a variety of food groups including fruit and vegetables is extremely important in helping you maintain a healthy diet as well as obtain all of the essential nutrients your body is crying out for. At The Marygreen you’ll find that not only will you enjoy a variety of fruit and vegetables within your meal, but it’ll change seasonally too as our Head Chef regularly changes the menu. You’ll also find a few different or rare choices of food here that you wouldn’t normally find elsewhere.


Lastly, where would any good meal be without a quality wine list? But we don’t just offer quality wine we offer award-winning wine. Our excellent list offers you the chance to relax and indulge with the very best wine to accompany the fabulous food and this is certainly not something you’ll find just anywhere. If you’d like to treat your taste buds to excellence and know you’re giving your body only the very best then contact us today.

What’s On In Wintery Essex This January?


Sticking to your new years resolution?

With the New Year in full swing and everyone back to work, the anti-climax feeling can really start to set in but that doesn’t have to be the case, especially here in Essex. With it’s great mix of countryside and city life, there’s always something to do and something to look forward to. Whether you’re a guest of leisure or a guest on business, here’s our guide to what’s on in Essex for the wintery month of January.


For those who just love to enjoy the countryside in the depths of winter then the Winter Wonderland exhibition at The View in Chingford is the perfect event for you. This art and photography show captures the wonder that is Epping Forest during the cold crisp months. Running from the beginning of January all the way through to the 29th from 10am to 5pm and the best bit of all, it’s completely free.


If the arts aren’t really your thing then why not join in the fun with one of the High Woods Country Park Sunday Strolls in Colchester. Dust off those wintery cobwebs you’ve collected sat in front of the fire and exercise your limbs. It’s just a short drive from us here at The Marygreen Manor to High Woods where you’ll be taken on a three-mile walk through the country park by the ranger himself. With one on the 18th January from 11am to 12noon it gives you plenty of time to break in your walking boots. They also organise great Friday Health Walks too. Led by trained health leaders, they’re a fantastic way to improve your health and fitness in a more sociable setting. All organised walks are completely free with no need to book. It’s the perfect start to the day that could be swiftly followed by one of our delicious afternoon teas perhaps?


For some the slow and steady speed of a walk just doesn’t quite cut it so for those who are really jumping head first into their fitness resolutions the Run for the Run in Hatfield Forest could be something to go for. Running Saturday 10th January meaning hardly any time to think about it and talk yourself out of it. Pay a minimal £5 entry fee and run the 5km course through the forest and park, all in association with the National Forest. If that’s just too soon then don’t worry you haven’t missed out because Parkrun organise free 5k runs every Saturday morning in Weald Park right here in Brentwood. All you have to do is sign up via their website and show them your barcode at the beginning of every race to get your official finishing time.


If you’re looking for something a little less “get up and go” and a little more leisurely then why not take a look at something that Essex is becoming famous for…it’s Farmers’ Markets. Barleylands in Billericay are playing host to two different Farmers’ Markets this January with one on the 10th (the perfect excuse as to why you couldn’t possibly run tomorrow) and one on the 31st. Running from 08:30am-12:30pm in its new indoor home so no matter what the weather you can grab some great quality local produce.


Local produce always tastes the finest…

If you’d like more information on what to do in Essex during your stay with us then feel free to ask at or reception. We’ll be able to give you lots of information on just what’s happening and what you can’t afford to miss out on. Don’t forget we’ll be telling you all about our upcoming events very soon right here at The Marygreen herself so for now, sit back, relax and enjoy our wonderful fine dining whilst you decide what to do with your free time in our favourite county.
