About Wasing

As one of the most diverse rural estates in England, Wasing is truly unique - a special place to celebrate, connect, grow and heal. The Estate is a stunning space where exceptional events are hosted. We combine this beautiful backdrop with exemplary hospitality to deliver wonderful experiences. Life long family memories are made here.


Our farm underpins our 'Estate to Plate' ethos by providing delicious produce. Our friendly herd of Sussex cattle are the jewel in our farming crown and we grow a variety of crops including spelt and rye for flour, oats for breakfast cereals, barley for beer and quinoa. 

We also manage an abundance of varied wildlife habitats on the farm and every year devote hundreds of acres to help protect our environment and feed our birds, bees and mini beasts.

Since 2008 we have also been producing hot water and heating for our events venue, using woodchip from our sustainably managed woodlands.


We are proud that Wasing has a large Countryside Stewardship scheme with numerous areas of the estate devoted to promoting wildlife. We also look after around 6 miles of river frontage of the River Kennet and Enborne, which has amongst the largest range of flora and fauna of any lowland river in the UK. Some of those include habitat for 21 species of Dragonfly, Cranefly, the Whorl Snail, rare bat species, and numerous farmland birds such as Yellowhammer, Skylarks, Linnet and Chaffinch.

However please note that this option will mean bypassing the woodland trail and walking across the vehicle parking field and along a short track to the pumpkin field.

Should you choose this option, this is at your own risk. All visitors require a ticket.

Our staff will continuously monitor the weather conditions and assess any potential risks to health & safety. Should they deem the weather a significant risk, the venue will close and refunds will be issued. Please check our social media channels before travelling.

Can I carve my pumpkin(s) at the event? Please carve your pumpkins at home as there are no facilities at the event. Children must not use sharp implements and must be supervised by an adult aged 18 or over at all times.

How should I store my pumpkins? We recommend that you place your pumpkin(s) on a piece of cardboard and store in a cool (10-16 °C), dry place. It’s best not to leave pumpkins out in the rain or frost as this will cause rotting. Please note that once your pumpkin has been carved, natural degradation of the pumpkin will quicken.

We cannot control, and therefore take no responsibility, if you or any member of your party appear in another visitor’s photos or videos which are published on social media or elsewhere.
