About Wotton House

Guildford Road, Dorking
Surrey, RH5 6QQ

As you drive along our mile long tree lined driveway, Wotton House is unveiled and has the wonderful ‘wow’ factor for you and your guests. Located in Dorking, Surrey, our grand Manor House is set within immaculately manicured gardens, which feature the first Italian gardens introduced in the UK,  a stunning, secret walled garden, temples, ponds and streams with pretty ornate bridges. Our gardens are deemed as such historical interest, they have been given a Grade II listing in addition to the house.

This  17th-century architecture and outstanding grounds provide spectacular backdrops for those once in a lifetime important photos. When you choose Wotton House to host your ceremony, there are two simply stunning spaces to choose from. Our beautifully finished Old Library is a truly majestic setting for exchanging your vows. The room boasts ornate, welcoming fireplaces, a grand vaulted ceiling and hand-painted detailing, providing your ceremony with an enchanting and elegant atmosphere. Alternatively, if you would prefer an outdoor ceremony, the spectacular Roman-style temple within the 17th-century, private walled garden is simply stunning. The grand structure is not only a delightful setting for your service, but a unique backdrop for your treasured wedding photographs. By night, the temples are lit, offering a new and magical setting for even more stunning photos.

The 1877 bar is the perfect setting for your drinks reception. The space is full of magnificent 17th-century frescos and offers direct access to the outdoor terrace. The Evelyn Suite has recently been refurbished to offer a light and neutral palette to complement your colour scheme. With three double doors opening out onto the 13 acres of breathtaking gardens and a side door leading to our fairy-tale grotto.

Our bedrooms have, along with the rest of hotel undergone a £6 million refurbishment, using soft colours and contemporary touches, making Wotton House a truly unique award winning venue. Many couples choose to host their family and friends at Wotton the night prior to their big day, extending the celebrations and being able to wake up relaxed in the morning, knowing their Parents, Bridesmaids, Best man and guests are all on site.

Apologies for the delayed reply - we've only just returned from honeymoon so it has been a bit of a whirlwind! We had an amazing wedding day - thank you! We couldn't have asked for more, it was exactly as we had hoped and more. All of our guests were commenting on how smoothly the day ran, how beautiful the venue looked and how tasty the food was. They were all extremely impressed, as were we! I must also say that the toastmaster, Robert, was awesome - he really gave structure to the day, had a great personality and calmed both me and James down (as we were both rather nervous before the ceremony!). All of your staff were brilliant, so helpful and friendly. Thanks also for all your help in organising the day, it is much appreciated. I am waiting for the first lot of professional photos to be sent to me, but I will send you some on receipt so you can see how it all looked! We will certainly be returning to stay at Wotton House in the near future :-) Many thanks again,

Wedding October 2017

We got married at Wotton House in October 2017. The venue is beautiful and it was an amazing day - the food was delicious, and the staff were brilliant. For us it was perfect - the ceremony room is stunning, then the Evelyn suite is less formal which we thought was nicer for the meal etc (though still looks beautiful once the decorations are in place). The MC (Robert) was brilliant too - very funny, incredibly helpful the whole day (e.g told us where to pause before walking down the aisle, etc), and listened to our request to try not to make things feel too formal. There was so much attention to detail - from bringing us champagne in the morning, to making sure we got canapes while getting photos taken, and from the way they had clearly put lots of thought/care into putting out all our table stationery etc. The team were also very good in terms of organising things beforehand - responded to all our questions and put together a very detailed wedding plan to ensure they'd captured all our preferences.

Wotton House will always have a special place in our hearts after our truly magical wedding ceremony. From the moment we first visited, we knew we wanted to get married here. The old library is a beautiful room for a wedding ceremony and when it is decorated to your taste it really is breathtaking. The Wotton House team went out of their way to look after us and made sure the day went to plan. If you happen to have good weather as well (as we did) then the grounds are perfect for your guests to wander, kids to play in and for photos.

We are delighted that we chose Wotton House
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Coppin, on 17 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2016

Thank you very much to yourself and all of the other colleagues who we dealt with in the run up to the wedding. Also to the lady who was in charge of setting up on the day, Amanda. We are very happy with how everything went and everybody commented on what a beautiful venue it was. We are delighted that we chose Wotton House as the venue for our special day.

How excellent all of the staff were!
Venue Service

By Mr. Nelson at guest at the Nelson Wedding, on 17 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2016

I stayed at your Wotton House hotel on Friday 5 August as my nephew was getting married at that venue on that day. I just wanted to say how excellent all of the staff were, particularly the waiting and serving staff, all of whom were so helpful and friendly. It really added something to what was a big family event so please ensure that their managers are made aware of how good their staff are.

Every member of staff were absolutely superb!
Venue Service

By Father of the Bride Mr & Mrs Nelson, on 17 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Aug 2016

Just a quick email to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Wotton house, for making Zoe and Steve’s wedding last Friday (5th) such a memorable time. They were made to feel extra special, and from the beginning to the end of their wedding every member of staff were absolutely superb, I couldn’t be more happy with the way things went. From the ceremony right through to the last song being played in the evening everything ran like clockwork, and that is down to all the hard work of every member of staff there. We stayed at the hotel until Sunday morning and I must say everyone there was so friendly that it made our stay even better, so once again thank you very much. Seeing your daughter get married is a huge deal and looking back I am so grateful that you and all the staff there insured both Zoe and Steve had the best time. They didn’t even need to tell me this I could tell just by looking at the smiles on their faces, and that is in no small part down to everyone there at Wotton House.

Thank you so very much

Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Booth, on 17 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Jul 2016

I just wanted to write and thank you personally very much for all your help with everything! The day ran so smoothly and everything was perfect!! I really do appreciate all your help making our day so special. I would also like to make a point of thanking the following: Amanda was wonderful!!!!!!! Such a lovely, warm and helpful lady! she ensured everything on the day was perfect. Please do pass our thanks onto her. My mum and dad thought she was a superstar!! The Reception staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful! They helped carry everything up to our room, bought my flowers up when it was time, was there as I got ready to walk down the aisle and came and said goodbye at the end of the night-this may all be normal service to you but really did exceed my expectations and made me feel very Special on the day. And last but my no means least was the wonderful Robert Gee! I know how highly he is thought of and I'm sure you get many comments of thanks for him but I cannot stress enough how he made our day!!!! He was so kind, funny and professional....everyone commented on how fabulous he was!!!! Friends of mine have seen my photos and are considering booking their wedding for next year! I have told them to absolutely go for it, they couldn't be in better hands!!

Above and beyond

By Mr & Mrs Wilson, on 10 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 23 Jul 2016

I will be sending a proper Thank you across to you all, but we both just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for just how amazing and perfect our day was. I cannot put into words how perfect it was. Both Amanda and Caroline made sure every detail was perfect, and could not do enough for us. They even came to see us on Sunday to see how we were. Everyone went above and beyond what was expected.

Everything was amazing!

By Dr and Mrs Copestake, on 17 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jul 2016

We had an amazing day - I know everyone says it but the time absolutely flew by. Everything was amazing though - the venue looked beautiful, the food was outstanding and everyone was so helpful. We cannot thank everyone at Wotton House enough, we were blown away. And particularly a huge thank you to you - you were brilliant in the lead up and made me and Matt feel comfortable and confident with what was happening. You were incredibly supportive and we are so grateful to have had you working on our wedding! Your organisation meant everything ran to plan and we had the best day :-) Thank you to you and everyone again!
