Old Coaching Stables



Friern Manor Country Hotel is set amidst landscaped grounds, nestling in a picturesque rural location, yet is ideally situated, just minutes from the A127 Southend Arterial Road. The country’s major road networks are all within easy reach, with junction 29 on the M25 less than 5 minutes drive away. On leaving the A127 (eastbound to Southend) at the Ford Research and Engineering Centre (Dunton), take the B148 and then turn immediately right into Lower Dunton Road. Friern Manor Country Hotel is located approximately half a mile on the right-hand side.
