A splendid Surrey sojourn in a historic country house with plenty of style, including breakfast and dinner

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 recently undergone a spectacular transformation, with the refurbishment of its ground floor and certain rooms, and the result is a refreshingly modern style that perfectly complements its impressive heritage. Even the 13 acres of meticulously planted gardens are listed - stroll around and you'll find Roman-style temples, pretty manicured lawns and Italian gardens.

While spa treatments are not available, the tempting leisure facilities provide a cherry on the cake, and include a heated indoor swimming pool and well-equipped gym. The hotel scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
