Venue Profile: Wotton House

Maria visited Wotton House, in Dorking. Read more about the venue here…


Wotton house is a 16th century house passed down through the Evalyn family. With 13 acres of land, Wotton house also is the first place in England to create 17th century Italian gardens.


The venue is through a scenic route through country lanes in the Surrey Hills, 3 miles from Gomshall train station or 4.5 miles from Dorking. This venue is surrounded by beautiful countryside and greenery. There is plenty of free parking.

First Impressions

We loved the drive down to the hotel. The grounds and gardens are stunning with two Roman temples completed with original mosaics. The 13 acres of garden are well preserved, with beautiful flowers and plants and have been deemed worthy of protection. The house has a beautiful 17th century Italian garden and lots of little grottos dotted around.

Environment and Facilities

The recently refurbished house and the 13 acres of land shows that there is plenty of space for activities and events. The venue has 26 event spaces for up to 240 delegates, this included the old library which was my favourite space.

The Old Library

This is a show stopping setting with 17th Century Pillars, the original marble fireplaces and ancient Latin phrases on the walls. The stone Gothic windows lets the natural daylight shine through.

The Evelyn Suite

The natural light that floods into the room, gives the room a light glow. The neutral palette of the room effortlessly fits to your chosen colour scheme.

Italian Gardens

Authentic Roman temples which are the botanicals that make Wotton House so extraordinary. Located in a secret garden, this is a perfect place to hold a summer wedding.


There are 125 bedrooms in total. There are three different styles of rooms which are superior, deluxe and Junior Suites. All Junior suites and some of the deluxe rooms are in our original mansion house and have unique features such as wood panelling and fireplaces. The bedrooms are modern in style, we had a suite which had a roll top bath and separate shower. Our room overlooked the beautiful gardens. Standard rooms are over in the extended part of the building.

Food and Service

There are various refreshment stations near the event and conference spaces, attendees did not have to go far for refreshments. The 1877 restaurant embraces the British seasons as they believe that the seasons bring their own secret ingredient to the table. Breakfast has a variety of food available, however dinner was more limited but good quality.









We could not fault the staff as they were extremely friendly and very attentive. They were very quick to deliver things to the room when requested.
