A Historic Norfolk house is a romantic wedding venue
,,Nestled in a tree lined valley, landscaped by Humphrey Repton, Northrepps Cottage is a Gothic grade II listed house, built by the eminent Quaker and banker, Bartlett Gurney in 1773. It remains in the ownership of the Gurney family and is situated on the edge of their North Norfolk estate which is a short walk from the sandy beaches of Overstrand.
Most recently the house has been used as a hotel and function /wedding venue but owner, Simon Gurney has remodelled the house and decided to rent this quirky house out on a self-catering basis with the function room and full commercial kitchen available for weddings. Many happy couples have married here over the years but the new arrangements allow couples to rent both the house and the fabulous function room.
The house, a cottage in name only, has both a wedding licence and civil partnership licence. Couples can marry and host their reception in the function room. The cottage allows them to be onsite in the days before and after the wedding and to invite family and friends to stay with them. A commercial kitchen which is professionally equipped allows a preferred caterer of choice to dish up a delightful wedding breakfast.
The function room which was added to the cottage at a later date opens onto the beautiful grounds. It has a dance floor and stage and 120 guest can be seated for a sit down meal. Couples can put their own stamp on the decorations allowing them to personalise their special day.
