Having just completed a massive £10 million refurbishment, De Vere Wokefield Estate’s doors are now open, and is looking more grand and beautiful than ever before!

Originally built in the 1560s for the wealthy Plowden family, the Estate is set on 250 acres of picturesque Berkshire parkland that lends itself to a PGA-standard golf course. With so much character etched into the property’s numerous architectural features, and a cuisine that focuses on hearty seasonal produce, this is one of the most unique, historical and grand estates in England.

Single Occupancy Bedrooms range from £105.00 to £165.00
Double Occupancy Rooms and Suites range from £116.40 to £296.40
(Prices include breakfast and VAT)

These rates will be honoured until the 18th of August 2018. To book call 0871 222 4828 and quote the reference code: REXE290918
