A story to tell
Built in the 17th Century De Vere Wotton House has a long history of entertaining guests. For centuries it was the seat of the Evelyn family and welcomed many distinguished visitors as it was passed down the generations. Among the house's notable residents was diarist and landscape gardener John Evelyn, who built the first Italian gardens in England in the Estates grounds. These became one of De Vere Wotton House's most renowned features and are now grade II listed and still largely celebrated.
Today, De Vere Wotton House has been lovingly restored to its former grandeur following a recent multi-million pound refurbishment. The renovation has seen a complete redesign of its public spaces, event suites and bedrooms, as well as a brand new restaurant and bar that combines 21st Century luxury with original British heritage.
Heart of the community
Throughout its history De Vere Wotton House has always been at the heart of its community. Today, the estate still plays an important role in the local area.
