The 17th Century De Vere Wotton House, which is set in 12 acres of gardens, has completed all of its bedroom renovations, and has seen 16 new junior suites added to its inventory, all of which are located in the mansion house, bringing the total number of bedrooms to 127. The transformation has included a full restoration of Wotton’s principal event space, The Evelyn Suite.
