A splendid Surrey escape to a historic country house with plenty of style, including breakfast and a dinner allowance


Once you arrive at Principal Wotton House, a rambling country hotel in the heart of the Surrey countryside, you'll soon understand why it was selected as part of Principal Collection's 'inspirational hotel collection'. Dating back to the 17th century, its fascinating history oozes through every pore of its eclectic architectural style, from its turrets and patterned brickwork to the dramatic Old Library with its pillars and vaulted ceilings. The hotel has scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

A refreshingly modern style permeates through the hotel that perfectly complements its impressive heritage. Every comfort has been taken care of across the hotel's guestrooms – rustic textures, neutral tones mixed with soft blue, grey and cream hues, plus artwork bring the outside in, creating a harmonious balance. Opt for a Superior room or a Deluxe room for even more luxurious space, or opt for a room with a view of the beautiful gardens.

Dine on modern dishes with a classic twist in the striking environs of the 1877 Restaurant. As you would expect from the tempting country estate-inspired menu, ingredients change with the seasons and are locally sourced where possible. At the bar, you could sample fine wines, craft beers and cocktails, while the hotel's afternoon tea, consisting of freshly baked scones, clotted cream and lush cakes, is not to be missed.


While spa treatments are not available, the tempting leisure facilities provide a cherry on the cake, and include a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam room and well-equipped gym, which also offers fitness classes and yoga equipment.


You'll be perfectly placed to visit many of Surrey's attractions, including Ascot and Epsom racecourses, the famous gardens at Wisley and the dramatic heights of Box Hill with its great views. You could also release your inner child at Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures. And it's easy to get to as well, being only 10 minutes from Junction 9 of the M25 and close to Gatwick airport. The nearest train station is at Dorking – four miles away.
