The first tangible evidence of the house that has become Savill Court is on the maps dated from 1815-1817. This was originally Common Land on what was known as Hurst Heath. The Land was once part of Chertsey Abbey Estate and later became Crown Land. The First house was a Straight Section with wings projecting at either end.

The next map, dated 1896, shows the house extended as a villa and pleasure grounds and included stables, yard buildings, gardeners cottages etc. The house was first owned by a widow called Hannah Knowles. Then by a Reverend, and later by a colonel.

The House was called Heath Lodge and was actually quite small. It is believed to have been extended in the 1870's but the most dramatic change took place when Baron Schroder bought the house in 1910 to accommodate his family and to extend his inheritance. He also bought a house called The Dell. This is a few yards from the entrance gates of Savill Court. The land that belonged to the Dell makes up the estate here. Baron Schroder extended the house and made it rectangular with an inner courtyard. He Created 50 Bedrooms, a billiard room, drawing room, a hall of pictures and servant quarters.

During the Second World War the house was used as a service hospital. After the war Baron Schroder lived in London, whilst Marga Schroder stayed at the house with a cook, butler and housekeeper. When Marga Died in 1977 the butler lived alone in the house for three and a half years until it was sold in 1980 to the company originally behind Savill Court, Country Town Hotels, for £850,00.00. it was rather run down and uncared for but work soon started on conversion from an English country house to the place it is today.

A second paragraph will be necessary to force this to happen as the first paragraph is not long enough on its own.
