    The County Kitchen Restaurant

“You’ve an hour or two to wile away before you sit down to an award-winning meal in the Samphire Restaurant; a 5-minute walk down Duke Street takes you to the City’s pretty Shire Hall and tiny flint-studded cathedral. Discover the secret heart of Essex…”

Staying at the County Hotel, in Chelmsford, you are just a couple of minutes’ walk from the centre of this historic county town and less than 5 minutes’ walk from Chelmsford train station; Chelmsford was granted city status by The Queen in 2012 and lays claim to the second smallest cathedral in England. Beautifully restored Hylands House and Park, just to the west of the city, is open to the public throughout the year.

The County Hotel offers you bright, contemporary rooms with free Wi-Fi and HD TV. Fully air-conditioned Premium rooms are luxurious in style and extra spacious – both sitting and work areas feature. Dining in the hotel’s acclaimed Samphire Restaurant, you can enjoy modern European dishes topped off with freshly brewed coffee and petit fours. Or perhaps you’d prefer a scrumptious afternoon tea on the south-facing terrace?

Essex County Cricket Club and Great Leighs Racecourse are among the many attractions at your doorstep. Bond Street Chelmsford is the shopping destination within walking distance; Lakeside and Bluewater are within 30 minutes’ drive. You can reach London Liverpool Street in 32 minutes – a direct route from Chelmsford train station. Once known as the ‘market-place of Caesar’ (the Romans arrived here in 60 AD), discover the secret heart of Essex for yourself.
