UK: £10million renovation of De Vere Wokefield Estate’s historic Mansion House is almost complete
Extensive renovations on De Vere Wokefield Estate’s historic Mansion House are nearing completion.
Mansion House was built in the 1720s by Charles Parry. It will offer 87 guestrooms, including 12 luxury suites, that have been sensitively restored, preserving their historic features.
The newly designed 80-seat restaurant, named 1560, will also welcome diners to an elegant space highlighted with traditional features and modern touches. A new whisky lounge will also be launched.
The Estate offers meetings and events spaces, with 51 event spaces including the magnificent Maple Suite, located in the Mansion House and catering for groups of up to 300. The Wokefield Suite, located in the estate’s modern event centre, Wokefield Place, can also host events for up to 300.
Howard Lewis, General Manager at De Vere Wokefield Estate, said: “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. Howard continued: “It was important to us to blend modern comfort with the hotel’s history and I believe we have done this successfully both internally and externally across the estate.”
