Wine buffs, it’s time to pack your finest corkscrew. Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking has opened the UK’s very first vineyard hotel – and it’s perfect for an eco-friendly adventure
Located in the heart of the Denbies Wine Estate’s 265 acre vineyard, the new sustainable stay offers 17 en-suite rooms.
Carefully designed to blend into the natural surroundings of the Surrey Hills and the North Downs, the property offers the perfect wine-inspired getaway.
One of the largest and most successful wineries in England, Denbies Vineyard Hotel aims to offer guests far more than just a tour and a tasting experience.
Filled with subtle references to its location in the heart of the Surrey Hills wine country, this new hotel is ideal for those who love a sip of sustainable luxury.
Enjoy bespoke barrel-crafted furniture, warm natural bark walls and outstanding scenery. As well as this, there’s also 7 miles of public footpaths to explore.
When it comes to the tipples, there’s plenty to try. Guests can taste the complete range of Denbies wines from the Enomatic wine dispensing machine, with a range of award-winning sips.
Alternatively, head to the open landscape garden for two cabana style seating areas designed for sipping and snacking on local cheeses and charcuterie.
Denbies COO Jeannette Simpson told The Wordrobe: “We have a wonderful site here at Denbies which attracts around 350,000 visitors each year.
We have been at the forefront of wine tourism in England since the estate opened and our new hotel will be a great addition to our existing hospitality offering.
The reputation of English wine continues to grow, and wine tourism is an integral part of communicating this message loud and clear.
We look forward to offering a world-class vineyard and winery experience here in the heart of the Surrey Hills.”
Designed to achieve carbon neutral status, this new Surrey Hills hotel has long-term environmental benefits at its core.
Fitted out with low energy lighting, which maximise energy efficiency with minimum heat loss, the design also features solar panels to help converse energy.
Outside, electric car charging points and cycle parking facilities have also been installed. Through this, visitors are encouraged to travel even more sustainably.
Leading the way in green tourism for the UK, Denbies Vineyard Hotel aims to be as eco-friendly as possible in the long-term. We have to say, the future’s looking pretty rosé.
