The historic Saracen’s Head in Great Dunmow has new owners.

The 30-room hotel, which has a 40-seater restaurant, was acquired by the Coaching Inn Group.

The Saracens Head, which originates from the 17th century with an 18th-century Georgian façade, will add to the Coaching Inn Group's existing portfolio of 34 hotels.


Kevin Charity, chief operating officer for the Coaching Inn Group, said: "We’re thrilled to bring our 'Hospitality from the Heart' ethos to The Saracens Head.

"Our recent endorsement as a Which? Recommended Provider and being awarded the title of AA Hotel Group of the Year demonstrates our passion for providing excellent hospitality across all our historic hotels and inns.

"The Saracens Head is an exciting addition to The Coaching Inn Group family and we know our guests will love the hotel and its rich history as much as we do."
