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 recently undergone a £6 million refurbishment, using soft colours and contemporary touches, making Wotton House a truly unique award winning venue.

Impressed with the overall service!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Jager, on 20 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 07 Jun 2016

The Bride & Groom were particularly impressed with the overall service they received throughout the whole process and of course on their day. The staff went the extra mile for her even keeping the cork from a bottle of Champagne they had. One of our C&B team members had put a 10p in the cork and said that whilst that coin is in the cork they will have the best of luck. She was so grateful for this and cannot wait to visit in the next couple of weeks to collect that and reminisce about their special day.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves

The Extra Mile
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Grant, on 20 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2016

We had a great day at Wotton and to briefly quote that ALL the staff at Wotton were excellent on the night before, morning after and of course on our special day going the extra mile where they could.

A day to remember!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Maher, on 20 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Apr 2016

We would like to say a massive thank you to you and all the team for all your help with our big day. Wotton stood out from day one as we had looked at many venues and knew this was something very special. From the moment we booked right up to the actual day the staff were so accommodating, nothing was to much trouble, and we cannot thank everyone enough for a day that we will never forget. We would like to thank our Toastmaster who came recommended by Wotton. Having him on the day was a blessing for us and we were inundated with positive feedback from all our guests on how personable he was and how comfortable everyone felt around him. From making sure the day ran smoothly with 80 guests to organise, along with a nervous wedding party, he did this with ease and was so professional. Nothing was too much trouble for Robert and he was happy to rally up the troops for our photos along with reassuring a nervous head table ready to give their speeches – We are truly grateful for your support! We would also like to thank Jodey in particular for assisting with the set up and running of our big day. Between her and the team, everything was set up beautifully and just how we asked and everything was stress free! Jodey, thank you also for all you support with both myself and the girls getting set up in the morning, up to and including the little details such as arranging my dress before walking up the aisle. Between all of you and including Robert and all the staff at Wotton, you truly helped towards giving us such a wonderful wedding experience, a day to remember and for that we are truly grateful.

Your biggest strength and asset is your staff!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Brotherson, on 20 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Feb 2016

The day was absolutely wonderful and our guests had a fantastic time, and you guys were a big part of that, so a massive thanks. Wotton House is a beautiful backdrop for such a special day, the recommended suppliers were nothing but helpful, the food was delicious (everyone we spoke to loved it) and the vegetarians were well catered for. Your biggest strength and asset is your staff; they were welcoming, always polite and smiling, extremely helpful and accommodating, and we could see they worked hard to make our day run smoothly to minimal impact on us. Please pass on a huge thank you to the Wedding Coordinator for being a great point of contact and helping with all the organisaton, all the staff at reception and the ones who helped during the wedding, as well as the chef and restaurant staff. We're really grateful to have been so well taken care of. Last but far from least, a huge personal thank you to you both for a pitch perfect presentation of Wotton House to us, all the time taken with us prior to our wedding, and for your personal warm wishes. You helped make our day amazing, and we'll be forever grateful for that. We'll definitely recommend Wotton House to anyone and we hope to see you again when we need a weekend away - and we'll keep you in mind for any special occasions as your venue has a special place in our heart. February 2016

It was seamless!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Howe, on 05 May 2016

We were so happy with the way the wedding day went off, we are still buzzing about it. We were so happy with how the day went, you guys really pulled it out the bag. It was seamless. With Gareth behind the scenes and Robert the Toastmaster up front, We really couldn't ask for more. Our guests commented how good the food was and how great the house and grounds looked. The florists that you recommended gave us such beautiful displays. Thank you all so much for your efforts, we really do appreciate it. Several guests have more weddings to go to later in the year and they all made a point in noting that we had set the bar very high. Hopefully we will bump into you again when we will come back to celebrate our future anniversaries. March 2016
