Found in rural North Essex inside the beautiful Marks Hall Gardens, the Coach House is an 18th century build with a rich history. For many years it was used to house the horse drawn coaches for the Mansion House, and the 2,300 acre estate itself was first mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Today, the estate and Coach House have been fully restored and are protected and made available to the public by the Marks Hall Estate charity.
