This fantastic new pub and hotel is located in the beautiful town of Dovercourt. The site, originally an old mill, has benefited from a £2.6-million conversion.
This spacious new pub has a large garden to the side and 13 comfortable and well equipped en-suite bedrooms. Each room enjoys a large flat-screen television and air-conditioning.
The Bottle Kiln is situated in the beautiful seaside town of Dovercourt, neighbouring the younger (yet more widely known) town of Harwich. Dovercourt boasts a thriving town centre, ample parking around town, regular markets and a gorgeous sandy beach. Transport links flow directly into Clacton and Colchester, while the neighbouring town of Harwich boasts Harwich International Port.
This two-story building’s Art Deco-style façade has been a feature of Kingsway since the 1930s. The adjacent plot of uneven land was part of a brickfield. Brick-making in Dovercourt dates from Roman times. During the 19th century, brick- and cement-manufacturing were leading local trades. The nearby mill, owned by John Patrick, one-time Mayor of Harwich, had 12 cement kilns and drying flues, as well as 14 bottle kilns, in 1881.
