Welcome to Wotton House

For 400 years, Wotton House has done things differently. Home to John Evelyn, a botanist and arboriculture expert, who purchased Wotton Estate in 1579. He was passionate about the role of plants in our diets, lived as a vegetarian and was considered a pioneer. This sense of eccentricity lives on at Wotton.

From our 17th century Italian gardens – the first in England – to our pillared library, you’ll discover something unexpected and delightful at every turn. What’s remained throughout the centuries is our sense of warmth, charm and individuality.

We have a history of extraordinary stories here at Wotton.

Wotton House will be re-opening to the public on  31 July 2020 for weekends only (Fri-Sun incl) and is now accepting bookings.

Our restaurant and bar will be open as well as offering alfresco dining. Plus, we will be taking in-room dining orders.
Our leisure facilities will be open for residents to pre-book with limited guests at any one time.

To keep guests safe, the hotel experience may feel a little different with social distancing
measures in place that adhere to government guidelines and public health advice.
