Our Story

Local residents, hoteliers Lana & Peter de Savary wanted to use their expertise and knowledge to revive this 16th century Inn into a bustling local Inn bursting with character, adding boutique style accommodations much like the other hotels within the collection. Bringing a unique edge with the development by creating a Shepherds Hut field and extending onto the existing barn style accommodations creating a row of garden rooms overlooking the llama paddock. Investing in the keep and wellbeing of the llamas, treks now go out most days providing a unique Surrey experience where people travel from all parts of the UK to visit. Food & Beverage, where possible is local and seasonal, showcasing the best that Surrey has to offer.

Our Love of the Surrey Hills

We source the alcohol we serve from local independents, such as Crafty Brewery Co, Albury, Vann Lane Gin, ensure that the wood we use is supplied by a local farm and run a weekly ‘Meat Raffle’ to win a locally-sourced meat hamper. All of our staff are also from the local area and are Surrey-based.

We are proud of our location within the Surrey Hills and play our part in promoting the area and its many attractions and businesses, whether they be national organisations such as the National Trust or local wellness providers.
