History of the hotel
Wivenhoe House's fascinating history stretches back to 1759 when Isaac Rebow asked Thomas Reynolds to build the mansion house, which is now Grade II listed.
Set in the grounds of Wivenhoe Park the hotel and surroundings were immortalised in canvas by renowned British artist John Constable, when he was commissioned by the then owner Major-General Francis Slater Rebow in 1816. The resulting painting now hangs in the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC.
