Loved this place!
Loved this place!
Dedham village is charming and beautiful. We loved the location. It was out of the hustle and bustle of London but close enough to see all the must see tourist attractions (1 hour to Upminster to catch the tube with the London Pass). Its also an easy day trip to Stonehenge. Theres a local grocery and two pubs just around the corner from the tallow factory not to mention some of the most amazing shops and galleries. The butcher shop has the best farm fresh eggs, bacon and chicken that I've ever had. Forget all those nasty rumors you've heard about English food.As for the Tallow Factory, it was perfect. There were nine of us staying there and we never felt crowded. More importantly there was never a line for the bathroom. The house and gardens were beautiful and tranquill. You absolutely cannot go wrong renting this place.

Beautiful home and in lovely village
Beautiful home and in lovely village
My family and I rented this home for almost 2 weeks during the middle of May, 2010. The home is amazing - well appointed and extremely comfortable. On the ground floor there are two sitting areas, diningroom (seats 10-12), a full bathroom, and a lovely kitchen. On the second floor there are 3 bedrooms, including the master (which has a water-closet), a hall bathroom with really nice shower and another bedroom with attached full bathroom. The top floor has 2 rooms, one has a double bed and the walk-thru room has twin beds. Lots of room to spread out. Outside it has a lovely back garden which is beautifully landscaped. It has it's own off-street parking in a small lot only steps away from the side-door. It's much bigger than the pictures look! The house is located in the charming village of Dedham just off the main street and all the shops and many restaurants are all within walking distance. We were able to do all the grocery shopping within town but I do recommend renting a car to visit the other villages and the sea shore. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful our stay was. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in their home and ensure that it is well cared for. In addition, Jan (the care-taker) was very sweet and always available for questions or concerns. This was one of the best vacations we as a family have had and I sincerely believe that it was partly due to the lovely home and village. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and I look forward to visiting again soon!

I booked the Tallow Factory for the week of my wedding and can thoroughly recommend it - fantastic location in the centre of beautiful Dedham, loads of room downstairs for entertaining and relaxing and plenty of bedroom and bathroom space. The house is also very well maintained and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay there so much that we are planning to return this year.

We had a lovely stay at the Tallow Factory for my niece's christening in Dedham. I stayed with my husband and 2 year old son, with my cousin and her partner and 1 year old. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, warm, comfortable with lovely garden. Plenty of room for us all and Dedham is beautiful. Perfect family holiday with lots to do nearby. All very clean. Would highly reccommend it - infact we liked it so much we're hoping to go back this summer!
