-Francesca, daughters and jack russels! (March 2019)


“Utterly delightful in every way! An enchanting location, beautifully and thoughtfully furnished house. The garden and grounds, especially around the lake, are a joy to experience. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and can’t wait to come back! Thank you for everything.”
-E & S (March 2019)


“Such a lovely week at the Garden House. Everyone made us all feel so welcome and thank you for the tour - very special. Gunton Arms and The Saracens Head locally is great for good food and further afield at Hoste Arms in Burnham Market. So enjoyed our walks with Bertie (our dog) around the estate - we shall return to see the progress! Lovely staff and nothing too much trouble. Thank you!
-The Wotherspoons (April 2019)


“We had such a wonderful stay in the Garden House. Everything was done to such a high standard and the grounds are simply stunning. You feel immediately relaxed and at one with nature when you are walking around the estate. We loved the tour of the house as well, so much history. We did the best Easter Egg hunt my daughters have ever done around the gardens. We went to Holkham, Snettisham, Cromer, Holt, Burnham Market and Wells-on-Sea. We did crabbing, deer feeding, seal watching and so much more. What a magical week. Thank you for being so welcoming. We will be back, I’m sure.”
- Nikki, Jamie, Ella, Holly, Ted, Rosie, Johnny, Lincoln & Diesel ( April 2019)


“ We had a lovely time at the Garden House! Very well furnished, clean and beautiful - Thank you very much! We enjoyed two meals at the Saracens Head and at the Walpole Arms - we would recommend the Walpole Arms more but both were great. Our favourite beach was Holkham (so sandy and picturesque!). We also visited Holt Country Park. Our favourite tea room was Hatty’s House Tea Room in Holt as it was very small and cute. We loved the local shop for supplies and cakes (would definitely recommend). Thank you so much!
-Andy, Sara, Joe and Charlie the dog (April 2019)


“Lovely cottage and great surroundings. Very impressed all round and we will be back!”
-Jackie and Jim (May 2019)


“Many thanks for all your help in making our stay so wonderful. Beautiful place and so peaceful.  Also, many thanks for passing on Phillidas details (on site horse riding). I rode twice with her and we finished riding down the drive and through the park. Wonderful. We will be back!”
- Jackie Frankis (May 2019)


“What a charming stay in the most delightful place and a lovely county. We could not have met nicer people. Full marks.”
-The Garrett family (August)


“Thanks to everyone at Wolterton for a wonderful week. This is a stunning house (so peaceful) in a truly beautiful corner of the country. The lake, beaches and brilliant local pubs - what more could you ask for?! Thanks so much - hope to see you again soon.”
-Chris, Em, Will and Jess (August 2019)

 

East Wing Testimonials


 

“Very welcoming hosts, up to the usual high standard. Coco and Trump are clearly in charge!”
-David Baker, London (November 2018)


“We have had the most magical Christmas ever! The East Wing is spectacular, comfort sublime, Keith and Peter have thought of everything you could ever want. The surroundings are beautiful, enabling us to take just enough exercise to counteract the gluttony encouraged by the fabulous kitchen!  Many, many thanks.”
-The Tubbs Family, London (December 2018)


“Very peaceful and delightful showers.”

“Wow - what a place! We had a ball as ladies of the manor for a few days. The East Wing surpassed all expectations and beyond. Such luxury! From the fresh flowers in every room to the sumptuous bedrooms and bathrooms, you have thought of everything. Loved  exploring the grounds and indulging our flower passion in the cutting gardens. Thank you so much.”
-Tina, Jan, Sheila and Annette (July 2019)


“Four families and three generations had a wonderful holiday here! Everyone loved exploring the estate especially the lake and the walled garden.

-The Charmichael party (August 2019)

“We had a wonderful stay with our best friends; Mick and Karen, Charlie and Ella! Couldn’t have asked for more on Alba’s birthday. We cannot wait to come back again, already planning our next visit. Thank you!”
-Adrian and Alba (August 2019)


“Big family gathering for a special birthday and a long awaited family gathering! We couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend it. The East Wing doesn’t disappoint with its beautifully restored rooms. Luxurious beds and bedding made for a wonderful night's rest. We loved the grounds and the charming walled garden, which made the perfect spot for stargazing on a clear night! Other highlights included the lake, the private garden, the sheep! Thank you for the welcome hamper (yummy) and thank you to Chris for being so attentive. Wow! What a lovely place! Thank you from all 14 of us, including the dogs!”
-The Cosgrove family (August 2019)

 

The Treasury


 

“The warm welcome we received and the food and drink items that were left in the kitchen for us were exceptional. We expect to be reading about Wolterton Hall and the wonderful holiday experience of visiting guests in the near future.”
-Rosie and John Knights (August 2018)


“We have relished the peace and quiet of this tranquil place. The walk through the walled garden and round the lake restores your soul. The Walpole has great food and ambience, The Saracen’s Head has good food. Chris and Laura were really helpful and courteous. The tour of the house with the owners was the icing on the cake!”

Gil and Peter Fairhead, Henham (May 2019)

“Having spent about 10 holidays at Wolterton in the past, it was wonderful to return. Such luxurious accommodation and a warm and generous welcome added to the pleasure of seeing the building and gardens so much restored. The walled garden has benefitted so much and the walk and surroundings remain as peaceful and magical as ever. Thank you.”
-Pam, August 2019


“Tranquility in beautiful surroundings, what more can you ask for?”
-Tom and Sue, July 2019

“Amazing place. We loved everything about it. It was beautiful walking round the lake at dusk and listening to all the wildlife. The walled garden is gorgeous - thank you for allowing us to use it. We live rather far from here but hope to return!”
-Tom and Denise, Lochmaben (July 2019)


“Wow! We absolutely love The Treasury and Wolterton Park. So nice to visit local National Trust houses, beaches, towns and then return to this tranquil paradise. We will be back!”
-The Marshall family, Oxfordshire (July 2019)


“We’ve had a lovely week in these beautiful and historically interesting surroundings - and we can’t fault The Treasury! Thank you very much. P.S. We enjoyed lunch at the Gunton Arms so much that we went twice.”
-Anne and Paul, York (July 2019)


“What a place and what a privilege to be able to share it for a few days! This place is paradise - so peaceful and calming. Thank you so much for allowing our freedom to roam. The lake and walled garden are amazing. Also fabulous accommodation, hamper and everyone is so welcoming and friendly. We especially love the bits that are not yet restored - a true sense of history. Sorry to leave but hope to return!”
-The Matthew Family, West Sussex (June 2019)

“Have had a wonderful time staying in The Treasury. It is comfortable and welcoming with great furniture and so many interesting pieces of decoration. The well equipped kitchen has been a pleasure to prepare meals in. We have had some trips out to Cromer, Sheringham and Holt but otherwise have not felt the need to leave the park with so many lovely walks. We have enjoyed walking around the walled garden, round the lake and through the wood. Daisy dog has quickly learned her way around and has enjoyed hours of ball throwing. We have been made super welcome here and our welcome hamper was delightful and the vegetable basket absolutely delicious! We will return home more rested and relaxed than we have for months! We are very likely to return for more of the same! This truly is a rural retreat! Thank you!”
-Roger and Jill, Chesterfield (August 2019)

 

Stewards House


 

“From the early morning mist over the horse pond and making camps in the snowdrop filled woods, to watching the late winter sun dropping beyond the lake, we’ve had a wonderful time relaxing at Wolterton. Thank you for lending us the exceptionally lovely space to call home for the past week. We leave refreshed and inspired.”
-The Berrys, Peckham (Feb 2019)


“Unfortunately our stay has come to an end. We have had a splendid time and had lots of fun. Some of our favourite things about the cottage were the showers, the comfortable beds and the generous welcome pack.

We really enjoyed your informative tour of Wolterton Hall. The grounds surrounding the house are perfect for a picturesque walk, especially around the lake.

Some of our favorite outtings included; lunch at the Walpole Arms, Blickling Hall, Holkham Hall and Holkham Beach. Thank you for your hospitality and kindness during our stay at Wolterton, we hope to see you again. It would have been even better if we could have stayed for another week!”
-Joseph, Simon, Olivia and Penny (April 2019)


“Green woodpeckers, barn owls, space for children to play. Driving through the gates of Wolterton is like coming home again. We love this place.”
-July 2019


“After 15 years since our first time here it is lovely to be back again!”
-Simon Rees (July 2019)

“All power to Peter and Keith for taking on the challenge of restoring Wolterton Hall and grounds. We had a lovely stay, peaceful and comfy, can’t wait to come back!”

“What a magical place to stay! Can’t wait to come back!” 
-Jane, August 2019

“A lovely stay with our new baby. Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. Good kitchen and cosy living space upstairs, good for post-day out rest. Loved the courtyard and barbeque, and most of all we loved the setting. The grounds are stunningly beautiful and being able to roam around was a great opportunity. We’d love to visit again and use the boats on the lake! Thanks again and see you soon.”
-Luke, Anna and Lily, London (July 2019)


“Words simply cannot capture the beauty of this place. Thank you for your generous hospitality and the exceptional tour of the hall. We feel so incredibly lucky to have been able to call this our ‘home’ for the past few days. The evening walks around the lake and the cuddles we were able to give to Trump and Coco (resident pugs!) and Mallie, made our time here memorable. We will definitely return the next time we are lucky enough to be in Norfolk. Thank you!” 
-Kim and Kristin, USA (June 2019)


“A wonderful venue for a family celebration, it was my daughter and daughter-in-law’s birthdays and what a special time it has been! The house and grounds are very special and we have all enjoyed every minute of our stay. The hall and surroundings are impressive and so well maintained and we have all enjoyed our walks in the woods. Thank you so much!”
-The Durdy Family, Doncaster (June 2019)


“Thank you for lending us a small piece of Wolterton to make our home for a short while. It has been a privilege to stay in such a beautiful and historic place. The Stewards House is delightful and we have enjoyed all it’s comforts - thank you for the generous welcome pack. It was a lovely gesture as were the vases of cut flowers from the walled garden! We look forward to returning!”
-The Hedges Family, Kent (August 2019)


“The Stewards House is such a wonderful place to stay. As a family of 5 with small children we enjoyed rampaging on the estate and canoeing in the lake. The house is beautiful, well equipped and furnished to a gorgeous standard. We’re looking forward to a trip back!”
-The Slenders, Northall (August)
