Norwood Park is an exclusive private country estate in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. Today, we find the House restored to its original grandeur while dramatically fusing the styles of the old with the new. Our sweeping staircases, elegant rooms, gorgeous grounds, sumptuous bar, and more than a few hints of eccentric whimsy throughout, make Norwood Park a unique and cherished Country House Home. The space Norwood Park is normally booked out over summer with wedding parties. However, as a result of the current restrictions on weddings, we find our diary has been emptied for the first time since we started hosting events twenty years ago. At this point, we are only releasing the months of July and August for booking, although some weeks in early September may become available too.

Guest access Your booking at Norwood Park is exclusive and you will be the only group staying on site. Some bedrooms (not listed here) and the Gallery (where we hold wedding receptions) will all be closed and locked for the duration of your stay. The commercial kitchen will also be locked, although should you book private catered dining via our onsite Manager, this is the kitchen they will use and not the domestic kitchen you will be occupying. Should your group be larger than 26, we can discuss opening up additional bedrooms for a further charge.
