    De Vere Wokefield Estate has unveiled the result of a £20 million refurbishment, which included a complete restoration of the historic Mansion House and the creation of new food and beverage outlets.

    Mansion House has been restored to glory and takes its place once again at the heart of De Vere Wokefield Estate. Originally built in the 1560s, then rebuilt in 1720s by Charles Parry, Mansion House shelters 87 guestrooms, with many featuring roll-top baths and king size beds.

    Designed by De Vere Wokefield Estate’s in-house design team, each guestroom showcases luxurious, distinctly British interiors. Blending a heritage colour palette of muted greens, greys, taupe and cream with contemporary fixtures and fittings, the design brief was to create spaces that are restful and calming; perfect for a country retreat. For example, classic Roberts radios, quality toiletries and smart TVs provide a tranquil feel to the reimagined guestrooms.

    “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 breathtaking,” said Peter Sangster, venue director at De Vere Wokefield Estate. “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.”

    The hotel is also currently renovating its spa, which is due to open in 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.
