The next chapter in De Vere Wokefield Estate’s history will be completed in January 2018 with the unveiling of the renovated Mansion House, following a £10m refurbishment project.
The historic country house, set in 250 acres of Berkshire parkland, will be home to 87 bedrooms, including 12 suites, a new Whisky Lounge, newly-designed 1560 restaurant, able to host 80 covers, plus an outdoor terrace with rustic pizza oven.
There will also be a completely re-designed new spa, home to six treatment rooms, including a four-person space with private Jacuzzi, plus four couple and two single treatment rooms. The wet area will be reimagined and include a steam room, sauna and plunge pool facilities.
The investment is part of the wider £50m investment in De Vere’s portfolio of country estate hotels and modern event centres.
Howard Lewis, general manager at De Vere Wokefield Estate, commented: “The historic house and the extensive grounds provided us with a stunning base in which to enhance an existing beautiful product. The new-look Mansion House is one that I am very proud to welcome guests into and the introduction of luxurious suites gives guests the opportunity to really indulge”
All aspects of the estate will have received an upgrade, from the re-launched contemporary meetings and events area renamed Wokefield Place, which launched in September 2017, to the hotel’s grounds. Wokefield Place also features a new Burr & Co. deli, which serves a selection of teas and coffees, as well as artisan cakes and deli sandwiches.
