The Mill House sits nestled between a water mill and a 900 year old church with its distinctive rounded apse dating back to Saxon times. The St Giles Church is open most days between 10am-12pm for visitors and has a unique village shop located in the vestry.
The Hotel has been run as a family business by the current owners since the year 2000 and they’ve put their heart and soul into lovingly refurbishing this large 300 year old property. The property has been altered over the centuries with a Georgian façade added to the front approximately 150 years ago. During the 1980s the separate red brick building to the rear of the property, which used to be the village bakery, was refurbished to provide more accommodation together with the subtle extension to join that building with the main building.
Although Langford is situated in a semi-rural location, it is a 5 minute drive away from the historic town of Maldon and 5 minutes drive away from the A12 (from the Hatfield Peverel exit). We are a 15 minute drive away from Chelmsford City centre and a 25 minute drive away from Colchester.
The Mill House sits in the Chelmer Valley which is a leisure and tourism protected corridor which features the Chelmer canal, river Blackwater, Beeliegh Loch, the Langford weir pool, Elms Farm Park and Maldon Golf Club.
The part of the river adjacent to the Hotel is known as the Langford cut which joins into the freshwater side of the river Blackwater. Otters have made a comeback in this area and it is not unusual to see monk jack deer, owls, herons, kingfishers, finches, blue tits, robins, grey squirrels, rabbits and bats. We have ducks, swans and Canadian geese that regularly visit the Hotel. We also have a rowing boat which guests may (use at their own risk).
