One of our favourite things about serving guests from around the world is being able to show them all that our wonderful town has to offer. Great Dunmow is nestled in the Essex countryside which is rich in history and home to many fabulous attractions including the annual V Festival, the Chelmsford City Racecourse and the nearby Easter Villages of Essex to name a few. We love to partner with local businesses and take part in celebrating our little corner of rural Britain in any way we can. Last week we were able to join in the festivities for one of our favourites, the Talliston House and Gardens, which held a Grand Opening celebration 16-18 October.
Stansted B&B and Great Dunmow Hotel
Harwood House was thrilled to play a role in the celebration of Talliston House and Gardens grand opening, a project 25 years in the making, during which tours of the attraction ended at Harwood House. Talliston House and Gardens was once an ordinary home but over the years has undergone an extraordinary transformation. Each room in the home represents another time and place spanning the globe and hundreds of years. During the grand opening, Harwood House was the site of the thirteenth Talliston ‘room’, named The Tipi. The Tipi ‘room’ represented Monument Valley, Arizona, USA, during the time of the ancient Navajo. Monument Valley is a site sacred to the Navajo and one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes in North America. We were host to a cloth and pole tipi similar to those camped at the base of Agathla Peak, near Monument Valley and had the honour of serving refreshments to guests on the completion of their tour.
