Voewood is an Arts & Crafts house with a Rock & Roll spirit. When Country Life Magazine set out to find England's Favourite House, Voewood was the triumph of the Eastern region.
A captivating example of the Arts & Crafts aesthetic, Voewood is a spell-binding place. Hidden from sight in wooded grounds it stands on the edge of Holt, a small Georgian town near the glorious North Norfolk coast. Designed as a home, for decades Voewood was used instead as a series of institutions from a boys' school to a girls' hospital. In 1998 bookseller Simon Finch became the owner and Voewood was reborn with confident style. Part restoration, part rejuvenation, Voewood is more than winning architecture and tasteful decoration. It's an emotional, charismatic house, welcoming and unpretentious, wearing its history with a flourish of swaggering fun.
Sensitivity to artistic tradition is capriciously combined with an offbeat personal history; Voewood embraces the Arts & Crafts spirit but it's no museum piece, imprisoned in time. Voewood is a living house and its stories are still being written.
It's unusual to be able to hire such a beguiling property for exclusive use, but Voewood's magic was meant to be shared. Voewood is licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, weddings, renewal of vows, naming ceremonies and celebrations of all religions and faiths. It can be hired for parties, film and photo shoots, family gatherings, corporate events, retreats and weekend breaks.
