This is the first vineyard hotel in England and with Denbies' commitment to establish best practice in green-tourism, the architect has sought to adopt some of the best measures to achieve carbon neutral status, reducing the impact on the environment and blending the hotel building into the natural surroundings of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Downs.
The Vineyard Hotel will have subtle references to its' prime location in the heart of the Surrey Hills wine country. Guests will be able to taste the complete range of Denbies wines from the Enomatic wine dispensing machine, linked to the room key cards. Warm natural bark walls will line the reception entrance opening into the wrought iron vine gates leading through into the stunning Orangery with far reaching views over the vineyard. Bespoke barrel crafted furniture will contribute to the origins of the working winery. The vineyard offers 7 miles of public footpath which includes part of the North Downs Trail, Box Hill is located opposite the hotel, making this a perfect destination for those seeking a tranquil stay.
The open landscape garden will feature two cabana style seating areas where guests will be able to enjoy local cheeses and charcuterie accompanied by the wine made and produced on the estate.
Denbies Vineyard Hotel has been designed with long-term environmental benefits in mind. In a time where climate friendly solutions are in the greatest demand, Denbies Wine Estate continues to pave the way for sustainable green tourism. It aspires to be the first fully carbon neutral vineyard hotel in England and in today's current climate surrounding the environment will be a big draw for eco-friendly tourists looking to stay in the area.
