Once the home of Lord Beaverbrook, a legendary 20th-century newspaper tycoon, this monumental property has hosted a "who's who" of society, including Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor, Rudyard Kipling, Charlie Chaplin, and the Kennedys. There is even a cinema in the mansion, where Churchill and Beaverbrook watched war clips during World War II. Now you can join their ranks!

 

This Victorian mansion features 18 rooms with sweeping views of the Surrey Hills. There are an additional 17 rooms in the Garden House and Coach House. Each room is individually designed, and many are named after the glitterati who slept there. Guests can stay in Churchill's room and even take a soak in the tub he enjoyed. Beaverbrook is a perfect blend of history and contemporary British style. Stuffy it is NOT, and the team is vibrant, gracious, and fun!

 

There are many activities on the estate from fly fishing and clay pigeon shooting to cooking classes and nature walks. There’s also a diverse range of dining options from casual to fine. The gardens are stunning and exclusive (the property is not open to the public without reservation). Beaverbrook is a clever base for capturing the essence of the English countryside—and just 30-45 minutes from Heathrow and Gatwick. Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace are easily accessible as are the award-winning gardens of RHS Wisley. The most highly regarded stately homes and gardens of Surrey such as Polesden Lacey are also nearby. You can also easily visit: Churchill's home at Chartwell; Hever Castle; Leeds Castle; and Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens.
