The Granary is situated in Constable Country on the Essex-Suffolk border just a few minutes from the beautiful village of Dedham and the old waterfront town of Manningtree on the Stour estuary. Renovated to an exceptionally high standard, this is the ideal place to relax once you have finished your day exploring the many local attractions or the historic towns of Colchester and Harwich, the pretty wool villages of Lavenham and Long Melford or visited the beach at Frinton. The Granary, is a sympathetically restored corn barn dating from the mid 1700’s where grain was once stored after thrashing. The Granary today sees a fusion of old world charm and the luxuries of contemporary living. Images of ManningtreeThe Granary's unique character can in part be attributed to the natural symmetry between the traditional and the modern.
