  • Open to all
  • Cromer Road, High Kelling, NR25 6QS.
  • 2:30 pm
  • £27.00 non-members / £23.00 members

One of the finest Arts and Crafts houses in Britain, Voewood was built by E.S. Prior for Percy Lloyd, 1903-5. ‘By far the most interesting building in this part of Norfolk... a violently idiosyncratic house reminiscent of Gaudi,’ says Pevsner. Restored by rare book dealer, Simon Finch over six years to fulfil his loves of architecture, art and books. Seventeen bedrooms and lots of action in a building that ‘responds well to events.’

Tea, coffee and biscuits included.

Unfortunately Voewood is not accessible to wheelchair users

DIRECTIONS: Take the A148 from Holt towards Cromer. In the village of High Kelling after the sign for Kelling Hospital take the next left to Voewood. Continue through the large orange gates for 100 yards.
