Peter Sheppard and Keith Day, the design partnership, took over Wolterton Park from the Walpole family in 2016 in order to restore the house and estate. Both are passionate about historic houses and have completed several important properties including a Robert Adam House in Fitzroy Square, Hales Hall & Great Barn in Norfolk and a mediaeval palazzo in Venice.

Their vision is to make Wolterton Park the perfect 18th century private estate for guests to enjoy the beauty, peace and tranquility of this part of North Norfolk while enjoying luxury and comfort in the individual properties .
