Ockwells Manor is a beautiful timber-framed 15th century manor house in the Royal County of Berkshire. Ockwells is an early example of a manor built without fortifications, which Sir Nikolaus Pevsner described as "the most refined and the most sophisticated timber framed mansion in England".

Ockwells Manor is laid out principally over two floors and with the exception of a small cellar all above ground level. The house is faithful to it's period and boasts spectacular panelling, stained glass windows and herringbone pattern brickwork. The Jacobean staircase, 17th Century panelling and 15th Century stone fireplace are particularly striking features of the house.
The main entrance is dominated by a fabulous oak door which enters into a cloister leading to a small internal courtyard. Around this are a number of exceptionally fine rooms but the Great Hall, living room and dining room are particularly impressive.
On the first floor, the master bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room with a minstrel's gallery overlooking the Great Hall. There are seven further bedrooms, four of which are effectively en suite, and one of which would make an equally impressive master bedroom.
To the south of the manor, is a beautiful topiaried garden enclosed within a listed brick wall. This garden operates as a series of enclosures, one of which is laid out as a chess garden. The eastern elevation overlooks a lawned courtyard where a secondary entrance gives separate access onto the lane. Further to the north is a swimming pool with a neat terrace surround and an ornamental pond and tennis court.
To the west of the house is a paddock with circular riding track. There are three further paddocks and a polo pitch to the south of the house.


Maidenhead 1 mile (London Paddington from 20 minutes), Marlow 7.2 miles, Henley-on-Thames 9.3 miles, Heathrow Airport 14.5 miles, Central London 29.3 miles. (Distances and times are approximate)
