History

The house which stands today was built in 1788 by well celebrated architect Sir John Sloane, known for designing the dining room in number 10 Downing Street. The interior retains many of its original features today, including the fireplaces and main staircase.

The manor of Wokefield was owned by the Windsor's until it was given to King Henry VIII by Andrew Lord Windsor in exchange for monastic lands. The house has been used for many things, including a school for boys in 1936.

    Firstly i would like to say a huge thank you from both Chevelle & I as our wedding day went off with out a hitch and all of the staff that worked from the friday when we arrived to the day of the wedding and right up till we left on the monday are a credit to the venue. All we have had is excellent feed back from all our guest from the rooms to the service and how accommodating all the staff were, all of the food was exceptional and again the feedback has been amazing. It truly was a day to remember and the whole atmosphere and ease of the venue all contributed to how great our day was.
