Venue Profile: The Wood Norton, Worcestershire

Rachel recently visited The Wood Norton in Evesham, Worcestershire. Read more about the venue here…

Summary

The Wood Norton Hotel is situated in a countryside setting in Worcestershire. The venue is perfect for many different types of events from board meetings and conferences to small corporate events and team building.

Location

The venue is ideally located just 30 minutes south of Birmingham and 90 minutes from London by train or car. It’s easy to find, just 10 miles from junction 6 off the M6. The closest train stations are Evesham, Pershore, Worcester and Malvern, and Birmingham Airport is 45 minutes away. It is also equidistant from Worcester, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Cheltenham and is within close proximity to the beautiful Cotswolds.

First Impressions

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the magnificent beauty of the house. The hotel boasts traditional features yet is accompanied with modern twists. Being in the countryside, there are breathtaking views of the Evesham Vale from the bedrooms and the meeting spaces.

Environment and Facilities

With a rich history in corporate events and training, there are three excellent meeting/event spaces:

The Orangery

This is a modern, purpose-built venue that sits opposite the main hall of the hotel. The Orangery has a complete glass frontage, providing incredible views over Bredon Hill and the Worcestershire countryside, while offering plenty of natural daylight and an airy feel. It can cater for up to 120 Theatre Style and 88 Cabaret style. We highly recommend this for conferences or corporate events.

The Boardroom

Located in the old house, this room offers an executive long boardroom table for up to 16 people. It boasts wood panelled walls, a feature fireplace and stunning views.

The Old Kitchen

This is another bright and modern room in the main building that can accommodate meetings for up to 22 people in a boardroom layout.

There are 50 bedrooms, ranging in style from standard rooms to luxury suites. We recommend this venue is best for an event for up to 40 people. However, with plenty of additional hotels nearby, greater numbers can be easily accounted.

The venue has great outdoor space for alfresco dining, as well as extensive grounds where they can host team building days and motorised activities.

History/Fun Facts

The hotel was beautifully built by the Duc D’Orleans in 1897, who were exiled French Royalty. In 1939, the estate was bought by the BBC so it could relocate its operations away from London in the event of hostilities. By 1940, The Wood Norton was one of the largest broadcasting centres in Europe.

Food and Service

The hotel has its own restaurants and has a variety of menus on offer. We were very impressed by our lunch and how menu designs can be made bespoke to your event. The staff were willing to go above and beyond to cater for guests and nothing seemed too much hassle. It was evident the staff are very proud of their venue.
