The original Trunkwell House dates back to 1190 but was pulled down and rebuilt in 1878. The house is evident in the early records of Beech Hill. In 1881 the Census revealed that Trunkwell was a small village in itself. Even today it stands in 34 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside.
Trunkwell was also well known in the area for breeding race horses. The most famous horse to come from the Trunkwell stables was the winner of The Oaks in the 1880’s.
In 1937 the Udall family bought Trunkwell House and its beautiful grounds. During the Second World War the house was opened up to evacuees to provide shelter and safety. The house was a family home until the son of the owner converted the house into a hotel.
The current owner is Mr Robert Walton MBE. The house is now used for a multitude of purposes. The perfect setting for exclusive and sophisticated Weddings and Events, many of our Brides choose to keep in theme with the Victorian House and era. Trunkwell’s splendid permanent marquee within the grounds of the house, lends itself to many themes. We have had Caribbean themed weddings and even Las Vegas has come to Trunkwell!
As well as Weddings, Trunkwell is able to cater for small intimate gatherings, parties, afternoon tea, stag and hen do’s. In fact there is no private occasion we cannot cater for.
Trunkwell is also proud to offer conferencing facilities, corporate parties, team building events and family fundays.
