Wasing Estate

Nature is the cornerstone for everything. 

Wasing, as custodian of the land, is committed to making conscious decisions regarding the environment within its stewardship to enable people and nature to thrive.​ Our farm converted to organic in 2018, growing a variety of crops including spelt and rye for flour, oats for breakfast cereals, barley for beer and quinoa. With Wasing being a mixed organic farm, we use the fertility provided by manure from our grass-fed animals & our friendly herd of Sussex cattle will often greet guests on the main driveway as they enter the Estate. We also manage an abundance of varied wildlife habitats and every year devote hundreds of acres to help protect our environment and feed our birds, bees and mini beasts. Since 2008 we have been producing hot water & heating, using woodchip from our sustainably managed woodlands.

Our organic farm underpins our 'Estate to Plate' ethos, providing delicious, local organic produce including Wasing beef. Our Wasing 1759 Gin is hand-crafted, bottled in Berkshire & created from botanicals grown by our expert gardening team, including fresh rosemary with honey from our very own hives. Our team of exceptionally talented chefs provide the highest standard of dining experiences for special events & at our wedding venue.

Celebrate your wedding in style with exclusive use of Wasing's majestic, grade II listed, award-winning Castle Barn. With the 15th century Parish Church of St Nicholas, a Victorian Summerhouse and a glass walled Garden Room for ceremonies, Wasing offers unique venues for your fairy tale day. Accommodation includes The Honeymoon Suite equipped with Berkshire's biggest bed, a bridal cottage for the night before the big day, a groom's room & luxury boutique rooms for guests.

Wasing Fisheries offer exclusive, membership-only use of the extensive lakes and rivers situated within the Estate and Kennet Valley. The waters provide a calm, tranquil space, creating not only a haven for those that appreciate and enjoy country pursuits but for an abundance of wildlife too including Bitterns, Egrets, Hobbies, Swans numerous Kingfishers, and a vast variety of specimens making it a truly special place for quality fishing.

Frouds Bridge Marina was established in 1997, providing moorings for 100 boats. Over the years, the marina's popularity grew to a point where a second basin was dug to provide another 60 moorings. Totalling 160 moorings using the 9,000ft of wooden jetties, Frouds Bridge provides a spacious and boat focused marina. The marina is bursting with wildlife including several varieties of fish, herons, cormorants, moor hens, otters, badgers, mink, water voles, birds of prey and around 10 different species of bat and we strive to balance the needs of the boats whilst promoting great habitat for flora and fauna.

Wasing is a remarkable place and we are very proud to be able to invite our local communities to enjoy family events including our annual Pick Your Own Pumpkins & Woodland Trail. Wasing's landscape can also be enjoyed through our walking or riding permits. With many permitted routes and public footpaths throughout beautiful woodland, farmland and lakes, it is possible to access routes across 6 ½ miles of the Wasing Estate. All proceeds go to the Mount Charity.

We provide a range of properties to rent from pretty two bedroom cottages to larger farmhouses and country houses, all set within the local picturesque villages and countryside. We also have many commercial properties, including beautiful barn conversions, full of character and charm.  We have many long-term relationships with occupiers and some of our properties have been home to local families and businesses for many generations. 

HISTORY

Wasing has been in the same family for seven generations. In 1759, John Mount discovered the Wasing estate, and wanted a country retreat away from the hustle of trade in London where his publishing business had been a great success. Swapping mapping for farming, the family took to country life, and have remained in situ ever since.
