Have you ever dreamed of staying in the White House? The good news is you can! It’s not ‘THE’ White House, but an equally stunning property with the same name on the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Windsor. And just in time for lockdown restrictions easing, it revealing its incredible multi-million-pound makeover.
Just the name The White House brings forth visions of grandeur and luxury. It’s no different with the mansion house on the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor. The hospitality group has just released images of the top-to-toe refurbishment to its Georgian mansion house, extending across all twenty-six of its bedrooms and six event spaces.
About The White House
The White House is a mansion house set in the historic hear of the hotel. As mentioned, it has been the subject of a high-end refurbishment that brings a distinctly British aesthetic.
It has twenty-six bedrooms that include ten luxury suites. All of which have been upgraded and combine contemporary design with the estate’s original character. The rooms offer picturesque views of the estate and are decorated in a heritage colour palette of cream with tan accents, muted greens and taupe.
They also are equipped with all the luxury facilities you can want. These include roll-topped baths, walk-in-showers, smart TVs and classic Roberts radios. In addition to this, and to make you feel even more pampered, there’s fluffy robes and slippers and high-quality toiletries.
It wasn’t only guest accommodation benefitting from a luxurious makeover. The White House’s six event spaces all received a makeover. These included the Hastings rooms, formerly the Matron’s study when the property was a catholic boarding school, the Roxburghe, previously the school chemist and The Remenham, named after Hugo de Remenham, who acquired the property in the 14th century.
These spaces are ideal for weddings, family celebrations, private dining, and banqueting. If you’re after something even more splendid, you can book the whole mansion house for exclusive use.
In 2018, De Vere Beaumont Estate unveiled the results of the first phase of its £12million refurbishment, which included the creation of new luxury bedrooms and a top-to-toe refurbishment of much of the property, including the hotel’s 45 event spaces.
The refurbishment saw a refresh of the hotel’s Grade II 19th century chapel, with an ornate painted ceiling and stained-glass windows, returning it to its former glory.
The Chapel has also been dressed with a new window as a doodlebug destroyed the original in WWII. It can now host up to 200* people for everything from weddings to celebratory dinners.
The White House boasts a rich history dating back to the 14th century. The original property was built for Lord Weymouth, and after this, it operated as a public school up to 1967. Throughout the estate, guests will find nods to its past history with replica typewriters and original schoolboy hats on display.
There are 44 acres of ground to explore on the estate, and these now have the addition of some beautiful sculptures by local artist Emma Stohard. Particular attention has been paid to landscaping and natural ponds that draw on its scenic Georgian history. They were designed to promote positive mental well-being and provide a large space for outdoor team building activities.
Fitness fans have also not ignored. The estate has a swimming pool, a fully equipped modern gym and tennis courts. There is also free superfast broadband for guests/members, and outdoor Wi-Fi has also been installed to ensure guests are always connected.
*Due to social distancing, the hotel’s capacity is currently lower.
