Voewood, High Kelling, Norfolk
One of the finest Arts and Crafts houses in Britain, 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. Fourteen bedrooms and lots of action in a building that ‘responds well to events.’
Tour covers all the rooms, including the 17 bedrooms and the garden.
Take the A148 marked for Cromer and continue along this road for about 8 miles. You will pass a sign to Holt town centre on your left, and a few hundred yards after this you will reach another roundabout. Turn left, again following the A148 marked for Cromer. After about a mile you will reach the village of High Kelling. The speed limit is 40 miles an hour, as soon as you are in this speed restriction start to indicate left. The driveway to Voewood is the next entrance on the left after the turn to Kelling Hospital and a bus stop in a layby. Once you have turned you will see a set of large orange gates, either side of the entrance, continue driving along the drive for about 100 yards and you will see Voewood.
