De Vere Wokefield unveils £20m transformation

De Vere Wokefield Estate has unveiled the results of its £20m refurbishment which includes a complete restoration of its historic Mansion House.

The hotel, part of the De Vere portfolio of country estate hotels, near Reading, offers 87 guestrooms, with many featuring roll-top baths and king-size beds, and a further 289 bedrooms can be found in Wokefield Place and Wellington Lodge. 

Originally built in the 1560s and then rebuilt in 1720s; the hotel also features a new 90-seater ‘1560 Restaurant and Bar’ in the Mansion House serving a British-inspired menu.

A new whiskey lounge has also been opened and The View, located in Wokefield Place, has been fully redesigned with an outdoor pizza oven introduced on the terrace serving artisan stone-baked pizzas.

The hotel is also currently renovating its spa due to open in the coming weeks. The spa will provide a relaxing sanctuary offering six treatment areas, including a four-person space with private Jacuzzi, plus four couple and two single treatment rooms.

Peter Sangster, venue director at De Vere Wokefield Estate, said: “We’re delighted with the results of the refurbishment; the attention to detail and beautiful marriage of modern functionality with classic style is really quite breath-taking and we firmly believe that we have created a property that caters perfectly for our guests, whatever their reason for visiting.  

“The transformation has breathed new life into the property. Whether it’s a romantic getaway for two; a show-stopping wedding or a large scale corporate event, the hotel and our expert team will deliver a seamless experience that is tailored to each guest’s unique requirements.”
