The Englefield Estate

The Englefield Estate near Reading, Berkshire comprises extensive mainly rural property holdings and has been the home of the Benyon family for many generations. The Estate’s vision is to be recognised as a commercially astute, expertly managed and successful business, while retaining our historic role as supporter of the local community and custodian of the environment.

The Estate covers some 5,600 ha including 1,400ha of woodland and a Home Farm of 800ha.  There are 25 let farms, a number of small holdings, 300 + residential properties, numerous smaller lettings, a forestry enterprise, mineral extraction and commercial properties. At the heart of the Estate is Englefield village and Englefield House, a Grade II* Listed building that is both home to the Benyon family and, from time to time, a venue for events.
