WE NO LONGER FEATURE THIS ACCOMMODATION ON QUIRKYACCOM.COM - but do have many other wonderful places. Take a look!

Voewood is a captivating example of the Arts & Crafts aesthetic, and a truly 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.

Originally designed as a family 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 restored Voewood to its original purpose.

Voewood is more than award-winning architecture and tasteful decoration, it is a charismatic house, welcoming and unpretentious.

Unusually you are able to hire this exceptional house for your exclusive use. 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. Voewood sleeps up to 41 people in 17 bedrooms and for as many nights as needed. 6 additional beds can be added if necessary.

There are 11 acres of grounds for outdoor team buildilng and a large conference area so this is a good option for Corporate events.

Also a wonderful wedding venue - Midweek Weddings from £5400, and Weekend Weddings from £7550.
