Voewood and the Voewood Festival
Voted regional winner for the Eastern region in Country Life Magazine England’s Favourite House.
Voewood is the great house of the Arts & Crafts movement and in that tradition, much of the material was quarried from the land it was built on. The house organically grew out of the ground and only local craftsmen were employed. The detailed care lavished on the house produces a unique atmosphere that cannot adequately be conveyed in photographs.
