Beaverbrook Hotel, near Leatherhead, 10 years after getting permission for the hotel (referred to as ‘The House’) health club and Spa, restaurants, cookery school and golf course.

Over the past few years Beaverbrook has received high praise from many international travel writers and hotel and restaurant writers, with Condé Nast including it in its ‘Hot List’ of most exciting places to stay.

To complement the existing guest rooms, the former workers’ cottages at Mickleham Downs are to be redeveloped to provide 21 rooms that are able to accommodate groups and families of all sizes in slightly less formal surroundings, but without conceding any of the luxury. 

The cottages are set around a central courtyard and offer a separate dining room and shared family room which is ideal for entertaining. A short distance up the valley, permission has been granted to extend the Dower House to create a 5-bedroom guest house for those seeking a little more privacy.

Great effort has been put into the development’s energy and thermal efficiency and other sustainability credentials, whilst maintaining the architectural aesthetic of the original cottages that are to be replaced. Even the link to, restaurants and spa will be via electric buggies that will pass through the ancient yew trees and along the original estate drive which sweeps up to the House. It is hoped that the new accommodation will be opened in 2023.
