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 £20m restoration throughout, and after paying a recent visit, it didn’t surprise us to learn that the venue has been voted one of the top five wedding venues in the UK by anglotopia.net.
For those of you that live close by but have never ventured beyond the gates, we’d say it is well worth a visit… A long sweeping driveway is the first delight you’ll experience at this country house venue. With its manicured lawns, lush gardens, picturesque lake and 250 acres of Royal Berkshire’s finest parkland, The Mansion House, Wokefield Estate has a special air of romance and a magical sense of seclusion.
Whether you are wanting to escape the children for a night or two without venturing too far from home, enjoying dinner in the newly opened 1560 restaurant, indulging in one of their (fast becoming legendary) afternoon teas, attending one of their many tribute and party nights or teeing up with friends on their 18 hole championship golf course and catching up for a well-earned drink at the 19th hole – the all new DeVere Wokefield Estate really does have something for everyone.
