A ‘Home Tour’ of Voewood

Written by Emma Hla
On the edge of a charming country town, a fairytale avenue leads to secret gardens surrounding a beautiful house shaped like a butterfly. A couple of miles from the glorious beaches of North Norfolk is a captivating Arts & Crafts home with a Rock ‘n’ Roll heart.

This is without doubt one of the most fascinating venues we have within the directory and, if you’re looking for a party venue with a heart & soul, then you need to discover the wonder that is Voewood

Notes from Voewood

Voewood is approached along a long, tree lined drive which opens up onto a formal turning circle flanked by the towering and intricate front of the house. Topped by numerous twisting chimneys this façade of the house gives the impression of a narrow building over two floors, yet follow the steps up into the corner of the garden and you realise what a deceptive structure Voewood really is. From this viewpoint the house seems to have been almost split open into the shape of a butterfly, each wing reaching out into the sunken gardens, unfurling and transforming into terraces, pathways and arched loggia.

Entering the house for the first time feels like stepping back in time, yet as you climb the steps into the hall it becomes clear that this is no ordinary historic building. From the tribal vibes of The Music Room to the almost medieval Main Hall, every wall speaks of a different genre of art, pop culture, music and design. From David Bowie to Gerald Brockhurst; anything goes.

Voewood combines original century old Arts & Crafts architecture with artist-commissioned mosaics, wall paintings and textiles. Add to this a layer of unbelievable pop art, Victorian prints, retro objects and rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia and you have the most unique wedding and party venue imaginable! Staying at Voewood is an experience like no other with an amazing friendly atmosphere that makes you feel as if the owner has literally just nipped out for the weekend and you have snuck in behind him!

We are totally black and white here and to match our laid back attitude to life we have absolutely no hidden or sneaky charges whatsoever. There is no corkage fee, no extra charge for a ceremony and no cost for the accommodation.

When you hire the house we mean that you literally get the whole house, exclusively…

So have you fallen…?
