The venue

Wotton House - Country Estate Hotel

Although we pride ourselves on being the home of true financial planning, our home is more of a metaphorical one than a physical one. Fortunately, we have managed to source a gem of a venue for you in Wotton House, only 40 minutes from London’s Waterloo and with ample free parking.

Overnight guests have access to the gym, indoor pool, steam room and tennis courts, as well as the Grade II listed Italian gardens.
