Welcome to Wotton House

For 400 years, Wotton House has done things differently. Once home to the John Evelyn, a botanist and arboriculture expert, he was passionate about the role of plants in our diets, lived as a vegetarian and was considered a pioneer of his time. This sense of eccentricity lives on at Wotton and you have see the Evelyn family history still present in the hotel today.

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.

Join us and become part of our history.


   We’re committed to high levels of cleanliness.
It is all backed by our IHG Clean Promise.
