Hotel Description

An independent hotel with a continental feel, the Lion Inn has a bar, an elegant bistro-style restaurant and spacious air-conditioned rooms flat-screen TVs and free wired internet. For many years, the Lion Inn was a traditional pub. Now, after a sympathetic refurbishment, it has been transformed into a contemporary bistro and bar with luxurious en suite rooms. All of the deluxe air-conditioned rooms have modern flat-screen TVs, tea/coffee making facilities and free wired internet access. Some of the rooms have balconies overlooking the garden, while others have direct access to the garden via their very own terrace. Stylishly decorated with antiques and salvaged furniture, the bar has a vintage French feel. A natural extension to the bar area, the restaurant maintains a mix of old and new. The menu is based on traditional pub food with a modern contemporary twist, and the conservatory allows you to take in the picturesque views while you dine.

Channels Golf Club - Chelmsford - Golf

Channels Golf Club - Chelmsford - Golf

Distance 1.67 miles (2.67 km)
The Channels Complex is set in 300 acres of beautiful mature Essex parkland. Founded in 1974 and starting life as a nine hole course on flat farm land. Over the years sand and gravel has been extracted from surrounding land, landscaped and restored to further golf holes. On 1st April, 1994 27 holes were complete and the Belsteads Course was opened. In years to come more holes will be added and eventually there will be two eighteen hole courses. Channels is our main eighteen hole course and mixes some of the old holes with some of the new. A magnificent course, boasting some of the finest greens in the county, superbly managed and kept in peak condition. Being mainly on restored land, it is quite unique to Essex with its numerous lakes and undulating fairways.
