Hideaway in Surrey’s Countryside: Beaverbrook’s Dower House

When one thinks of a quintessential English getaway, visions of rolling hills, serene valleys, and homes steeped in history and luxury often come to mind. Beaverbrook extends its spirit of British charm with a magical house. Tucked within the estate’s woodlands – The Dower House, located within a walled oasis of 60 acres, has its own private swimming pool, helipad, studio or spa treatment room, and an Aston Martin because nothing says “relaxing retreat” like a luxury car waiting for you.

The beautifully restored five-bedroom Dower House is a retreat that blends old-world charm with the luxury of contemporary comforts. Originally built in 1893, this elegant house was once home to the Dowager Lady Beaverbrook.

The refurbishment, overseen by renowned interior architect Nicola Harding, is true to creating spaces that evoke emotion with vibrant colors and cozy furniture, adding her touch of modern flair. Each room is a visual treat with pretty patterned wallpapers, four-poster beds draped in striped curtains, and stylish chequerboard tiles in the bathrooms. From the carefully selected fireplace in the drawing room to the oh-so-quaint corner in the library, you’ll feel like you’ve time-traveled to a place where charm meets, well, more charm.

What truly sets the Dower House apart is its exclusivity and privacy, allowing guests to have the entire property to themselves for a truly secluded and intimate experience. Start your day with a traditional English breakfast prepared by your private chef each morning before walking through the magical surrounding gardens. Take a dip in your own personal swimming pool or relax with a massage in the private spa treatment room. End your day with a glass of wine and sushi from the Japenese Grill overlooking the beautiful English countryside, or cozy up by the fireplace in the drawing room with a good book.

The serene ambiance of The Dower House is unmatched – surrounded only by nature, it’s a unique retreat where you can truly relax in seclusion, coming and going as you please, all while enjoying the services of a luxury hotel.
