The Swan, Thaxted

Traditionally built as a coaching inn, The Swan is set amid the quaint features of the surrounding area.  Among others, Dick Turpin’s cottage is located a short distance away and makes for a very interesting trip.  With such a long-standing history, The Swan has retained many of its original features, but its 20 bedrooms have all the modern conveniences to make your stay a comfortable one.

Open fires and oak beams create a homely atmosphere, which can be enjoyed in the bar area whilst you dine on our traditional English menu, cask ales and fine wines.

The Swan also has a function room and facilities available for your wedding reception.

With free Wi-Fi and a meeting room for up to 30 people we can look after all your business needs and even accommodate you for the evening.
