“The view from the hall, southwards across the lake to the distant woods around Blicking, remains one of the finest landscape compositions in the county.”

Georgian historic estate in North Norfolk with restored properties to rent
Wolterton Hall and many of its associated buildings were built by Horatio Walpole, and designed by Thomas Ripley, at the beginning of the eighteenth century.
Set in a 150 acre park created originally by the great landscape gardener Charles Bridgeman for Horatio Walpole. The park is gradually being returned to a natural landscape with an ecology hardly touched since it was last occupied thirty years ago. It is a tranquil, natural place with a large lake which has hardly been disturbed in the last few decades and is for exclusive use of guests staying at Wolterton. The park is set in a 500 acre estate which is grazed by the sheep of Gareth and Jo. While dogs are welcome in some properties, it is important that dogs are kept on a lead.
The new owners have set about restoring the buildings fit for the 21st century but using traditional materials required by their listed status. Currently there are four which have been completely restored: The grand East Wing with views over the Lake, The East Lodge and Treasury which span the entry to the park and the delightful Garden House with views over the walled gardens. All have outside space.
All the properties have proper central heating and lighting with handmade kitchens and luxurious bathrooms. All the rooms are furnished with period furniture, Colefax and Fowler and Malabar textiles with floors of oak, marble and mosaic.
