Downham Hall

Downham Hall is the former home of the de Beauvoir family and the house has had many incarnations and now we are hoping to let others enjoy it with us as accommodation for guests.

We are based in a wonderful location only 30-40 minutes from Central London and in lovely countryside.
Feels as though you are far from the hustle and bustle of the City but 5 minutes from many rail links and close to many major roads.
We have listed many activities to do in the area but strolling about the local area is a great place to start.
We are now converting the Hall bit by bit ready to take guests this summer in the North Wing and hopefully

Richard Benyon De Beauvoir

Full of history

Records indicate there has been a property on the site since the 1500s with various incarnations
since. The currnet property is believed to be from the 1700s with an extension in the early
1900s. It was most notably the home of de Beauvoir family who built a
large part of East London, particularly around Hackney. The Hall was also the farm house
previously and connected to the adjoining farm until the last century.

Country setting

Just 1 mile from Wickford and close to Billericay too you would never realise considering the
fields on all sides. We have reinvigorated the gardens to ensure stunning views of
the fields
and the chance to see the countryside bear witness to birds of prey,
deer and many other types of wildlife is great for all but in particular children. Our children
were born in London and are captivated by the new environment.

Enjoy and relax

We have a huge fireplace as you enter the North Wing and we are sure you will relax as soon as
you turn up the drive and take your first look at where we are. With so much to do in the
area you can’t help but to enjoy your time in this much overlooked part of
the UK.

Close to civilisation

Major trainlines into London Liverpool Street and London Fenchurch Street mean you can easily get
to us or into town. We are close to Wickford, Billericay and Chelmsford. Shopping
is nearby
as we have Lakeside and Freeport Shopping areas close too. Many good
quality food places are also easily reachable and we can help with advice on where might suit
you best.

  • Free wifi

    Our rooms have access to the free wifi and in time we will roll out provision to the whole
    property to use the internet service.

  • Swimming pool

    We have an outside swimming pool available and heated in the summer months. This is currently
    being renovated and will be ready later in the year.

  • Family Friendly

    Downham Hall is run by a young family and we are happy to entertain families and can provide toys
    and other items to families as needed. Phone ahead with any questions and we will do our best to
    help as much as we can.
