En­joy the coun­try-house charm of Beaver­brook in the Sur­rey Hills

The for­mer home of news­pa­per mogul Lord Beaver­brook, this lux­ury coun­try-house ho­tel, a late-vic­to­rian man­sion set in 400 lush acres in Sur­rey, is ready to wel­come you to a world of un­par­al­leled ser­vice, rich her­itage and im­pec­ca­ble de­sign. There are 29 bou­tique rooms split be­tween

The Gar­den House, The Main House and – open­ing later this year – The Coach House Spa and Glass House Cot­tages, a tran­quil re­treat.

we love it be­cause... It’s a charm­ing and peace­ful place to stay and dine, with the glam­our of yes­ter­year.

hide away... Set in a se­cluded walled gar­den, The Gar­den House’s 11 quirky and cosy cot­tage-like rooms are in­di­vid­u­ally dec­o­rated in a re­laxed mix of tex­tiles and colours, with eclec­tic art­work and an­tiques.

go for grandeur... Hav­ing played host in the last cen­tury to some of high so­ci­ety’s finest fig­ures, from Rud­yard Ki­pling and Ian Flem­ing to Win­ston Churchill and Her­bert Asquith, the Main House now offers 18 rooms filled with fur­ni­ture and fit­tings sourced from an­tiques fairs, as well as fur­nish­ings and fab­rics in­spired by the 1920s to 1950s.

tuck in... Savour The Bar’s old-school glam­our as you sip an apéri­tif be­fore en­joy­ing a meal in one of the three restau­rants, with menus fo­cused on sea­sonal, home­grown and lo­cally sourced pro­duce. The Kitchen Gar­den’s

Head Chef Kaz Suzuki offers rus­tic An­glo-ital­ian dishes, like de­li­cious Chicken Mi­lanese with black truf­fle, or a gnocchi and tortellini fu­sion.

find your fun... Whether you’re a fan of ram­bling or rid­ing, there’s lots to do. The lake is stocked with trout, and you can go cy­cling or for­est foraging. All ages can take a cook­ery class and lit­tle ones can burn off ex­tra en­ergy with den build­ing, night sa­faris and trea­sure hunts. Al­ter­na­tively, pop them into the Kids’ Club for ad­ven­tures, pranks and projects, leav­ing you free to be pam­pered in The Coach House Spa with treat­ments us­ing natural English beauty prod­ucts to leave you feel­ing nur­tured and re­vi­talised. how Much? Gar­den House rooms start from £280 per night; Main House rooms from £420.

In­for­mal­ity is on the menu in The Gar­den House, where lo­cal pro­duce is prized. Ex­plore the ho­tel’s gar­dens and grounds (be­low) then re­tire to your in­di­vid­u­ally dec­o­rated room (bot­tom).
