When the fast pace of London life catches up with you, there is only one thing to do – take a much-needed break. Often time doesn’t allow for long-haul flights to faraway destinations but, fear not, there are some first-class alternatives right on your doorstep. Only a forty-minute train or one-hour car ride away from London, Beaverbrook hotel in Surrey offers everything the weary city heart could possibly desire to rest and recover.

Formerly influential politician and publicist Lord Beaverbrook’s regal residence, the property has a rich history of having hosted the glamourous high society of politics, literature and theatre, such as Winston Churchill and Ian Fleming. The hotel’s four-hundred acres encompass four separate buildings that are being launched in phases: The House and The Garden House, which are open to guests in all their glory, Glass House and The Coach House Spa and Cottages, which we will be able to feast our eyes upon soon.

The House is the late-Victorian mansion that used to sleep Lord Beaverbrook himself, as well as his celebrity friends, with Churchill having had his own bedroom here too. It boasts a glorious terrace with picturesque views of the vast grounds and a range of guestrooms and suites. The Classic Rooms are spacious and decorated with charming period features, comprising comfortable King size beds, a coffee machine, an Apple TV and a large bathroom with indulgent Bamford products. The Turret and Superior Turret rooms are tucked away in The House’s towers and feature luxurious décor and quirky bathrooms, the latter also benefitting from a terrace. The suites comprise a large living space decorated in a blend of antique and modern furniture and boast spectacular views from the private terraces. Finally, the Dowager Suite – Lord Beaverbrook’s master bedroom – exudes pure luxury, with a generous living space and terrace overlooking the garden, as well as a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower and another private terrace. The House offers a wide range of dining options too, from breakfast and afternoon tea to elegant fine dining at the Japanese Grill or a creative cocktail at the Parrot Bar.

The Garden House is tucked away behind a wall and is – as its name suggests – surrounded by a luxuriant garden that awards it true British countryside charm. The inside has the spirit of a private home, with a number of cosy, comforting rooms, some with roll top baths and south-facing terraces. Alternatively, stay in one of the larger, more secluded Cottage bedrooms that offer all the luxuries of the other rooms, as well as calming woodland views. The Garden Kitchen serves a delightful Anglo-Italian inspired menu of rustic and homely dishes, from Scottish Salmon Carpaccio to Devon Crab and Chilli Linguine, all made with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients from the hotel’s garden.

The Coach House Cottages, located by the Spa, are nearly ready to be unveiled. Comprising large living areas and interconnecting rooms, they will be ideal for families or groups who prefer a little extra space, and feature wonderful garden views. The Coach House Spa will also be opening soon, offering a serene and relaxing environment, with dedicated therapists using natural products to pamper guests. The spa will feature six treatment rooms, a nail lounge, a sauna and steam room, as well as an indoor and outdoor pool and a hammam. The in-house deli will serve healthy snacks and homemade, wood oven pizza.

Surrounded by nothing but calming green pastures and fresh, clean air, Beaverbrook offers a range of outdoor activities to make the most of the four-hundred acres of beautiful British countryside it resides in. With plenty of space and a number of excellent facilities around, horse riding is a great way to explore the Surrey countryside. As a more relaxed alternative to horse riding, guests can also while away a day fishing at local fishing farms or lakes. Beaverbrook also offers tennis, bike riding, forest foraging and a cooking school, as well as a Kid’s club for children to take part in a number of different adventures.

For a well-rounded stay at a beautiful hotel with rich heritage, Beaverbrook truly is the perfect choice. Enjoy your home away from home, where comfort is key and nature encompasses you, for a relaxing and reenergising holiday.
