The art of natural healing

Beaverbrook is a classic English country house hotel located less than an hour from London and set in 400 acres of beautiful, privately owned countryside with exceptional views of the Surrey Hills. The house, built in 1866-70 was originally known as Cherkley Court until Lord Max Beaverbrook acquired it in 1911.

A cabinet minister during both world wars, during the 50 years he lived there the newspaper magnate hosted guests including Sir Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor and Sir Ian Fleming, and many of the 18 rooms and suites are now named after these famous figures.

Beaverbrook was bought in 2010 by its current owners, Joel Cadbury, Tim Edwards, Ollie Vigors and Ian Todd, who have staged careful renovations and opened the property to guests in stages since 2016. Many of the hotel’s creative elements are overseen by advertising icon Sir Frank Lowe, with interior designer Susie Atkinson – renowned for her work at Babington House, Soho House and Dean Street Town House – adding her stamp to the main house.

After five years of planning and development, the final phase of the Beaverbrook project – The Coach House Health Club and Spa – opened in January of this year. Drawing inspiration from its natural English country setting, the spa offers guests a modern, eye-catching escape that is colourful, thoughtful, engaging and relaxing. With a healing philosophy based on holistic and naturopathic treatments, it is home to a range of boutique, hand-crafted and organic products that celebrate the best of British botanical beauty.

The health club is located in an historic former coach house on the estate and boasts 20m UV-ionised indoor and outdoor pools, a UV-and-copper-ionised pool for children, and a state-of-the-art 200sqm gym. The spa has six treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite with an outdoor bathtub, and each therapy room has high ceilings and natural light filtering through stained glass to create an added sense of space. With views of a courtyard garden, each room has bespoke Lemi treatment beds that can be lowered to knee-height, enabling the therapists to have full access for ease of bodywork.

A thermal suite boasts an English Bath House – a modern version of the traditional hammam – a steam room, a sauna, a Jacuzzi and an ice fountain. Hair and nail treatments are available in The Beauty Room, while healthy food, coffee, juicies and flatbreads are served in The Deli. A selection of organic and natural products are showcased in The Boutique & Apothecary, which is soon to launch its own line of naturopathic herbs, teas and tinctures.

“We decided not to go with a big brand that does the whole concept. We wanted to be more personal and more ‘Beaverbrook’. We have chosen products to represent our ethos of being organic, nourishing and wholesome.”
