We’re delighted to see our client Wolterton Park featured in The Times roundup of 20 Downton Abbey-esque historic homes and castles to stay at.
Wolterton Hall, one of the four great 18th century power houses of Norfolk, is being lovingly restored to bring history, luxury and tranquillity to North Norfolk after standing empty for three decades.
Wolterton Park’s owners, Peter Sheppard and Keith Day, are restoring the estate to its former splendour and have launched four impeccably designed holiday properties fusing modern standards with understated elegance of the Georgian period.
Income from the room lettings will go back into the restoration of one of the UK’s finest stately homes, allowing the beautiful Georgian estate to become fully sustainable and a long-term feature of the stunning Norfolk countryside.
The park provides a choice of accommodation suitable for couples and dog owners through to larger groups so all of the family are kept happy!
