The Layer Fox is at the centre of the rural village of Layer de la Haye south of Colchester. Over 300 years old, it re-opened under new management in the summer of 2015 having been completely refurbished throughout. This restored and revealed the attractive old beams and oak flooring. There are three main areas: the comfortable dining room, an attractive bar with a large fireplace (and wood-burning stove in the winter) plus a cosy snug with books and free national newspapers available.
There are two terraces – one at the front and the other to the rear and so on fine days there is always a seat in the sun.
The four comfortable en suite bedrooms are in a quiet, separate building.
