A mansion house hotel near Reading
There has been an estate at Wokefield since the first house was built in the 1560s for the wealthy Plowden family. Set in 250 acres of Berkshire parkland, its history is etched in the different architectural features that greet you throughout.
Now De Vere Wokefield Estate, the hotel has been completely transformed following a £20 million restoration throughout whether you choose to stay at Wokefield Place, Wellington Lodge or the estate's historic Mansion House.
A high-tech dedicated conference building, Wokefield Place has been refurbished and kitted out with all the AV and IT you need. A Burr & Co., the groups’ signature coffee shop has been added, complementing the current restaurant, bar and deli. Inspired by British heritage design, a new collection of bedrooms has also been created.
Once again the heart of the estate, the historic Mansion House has had a complete makeover and now offers 87 guestrooms, including 12 luxury suites, along with the restoration of a number of event spaces including the pillared Terrace Suite. A new 1560 Restaurant & Bar celebrate the best of British ingredients, whilst the Whisky Lounge is a cosy spot for drinks until the small hours.
