Howard Lewis, De Vere Wokefield Estate general manager commented: “I am delighted to see phase one of our landmark restoration complete with the addition of the new Executive Centre and I am looking forward to seeing the transformation across the estate unfold as we restore this well-established popular venue to its former glory.” 

The restoration of De Vere Wokefield Estate is part of a wider multimillion pound development project across the De Vere Country Estate portfolio, which will position the mansion house back at the heart of each property to celebrate their unique British history. 

De Vere Wokefield’s renovation programme reaffirms it as one of the UK’s leading country estates for premium events with subsequent works planned for completion by the end of quarter three of 2017.

These include, the refurbishment of the Executive Centre’s remaining 73 guestrooms and pre-function space, The Street, as well as the introduction of De Vere’s signature coffee shop, Burr & Co.
