Wood Norton extends conference space in £10m refurb project


The Wood Norton in Worcestershire has completed an extensive refurbishment of its ‘Old kitchen’, which has resulted in the hotel’s conference and restaurant facilities being extended.

The new conference and restaurant suite has been named ‘Fleur de Sel’ and is the latest development in The Wood Norton’s £10m refurbishment programme.

The new venture can now host more intimate meetings with space for up to 20.

Refurbished by interior design specialist, Linda Brage of Core Design, the Fleur de Sel has been given a new neutral and grey colour palette in a bid to create a more calming and welcoming atmosphere.

The design has been purposely styled so that it can also serve as an additional restaurant for hotel guests and locals who order from the new bar and gastro menu.

General manager, Steve Sweeny, explained: “Here at The Wood Norton we have become an increasingly popular venue for businesses requiring meeting or conference facilities – and although we have both the boardroom and the Orangery to accommodate this demand, we wanted to create an additional space ideal for medium-sized groups between 10 and 20 in numbers.

All refurbishments were finalised on Thursday 10th March 2016 and already the hotel is taking bookings from both businesses, hotel guests and local residents alike.

Located just outside of Evesham, The Wood Norton is a Grade-II listed Victorian manor house originally crafted for French royalty. Since its official reopening in late 2012 the hotel has become a popular establishment for fine dining, conferences and events, and for tourists.
