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.
