Imbued with a sense of history, this classic English country retreat o≠ers welcoming luxury
Imbued with a sense of history, Beaverbrook is a classic English country retreat.
Once the home of press baron Lord Max Beaverbrook, this Grade II late-victorian mansion in 400 acres of Surrey parkland has played host to the crème de la crème of British society. It is now possible to follow in the footsteps of the great and the good, as the estate has been turned into a country house hotel, with accommodation including the Garden House (above), which is tucked away in the walled garden. Eclectic interiors feature a mix of textiles, one-off antiques and naturethemed art, while cottage-style rooms offer sumptuous beds, roll-top baths and beautiful views of the Surrey Hills.
