Wolterton Park is a 150 acre park on a 500 acre private estate in the Bure Valley between Holt and Aylsham, close to the North Norfolk coast.
Wolterton Hall was built by Horatio Walpole in 1741 at the same time that his brother Sir Robert Walpole, Britain’s first Prime Minister, was building Houghton Hall.
Wolterton Park was purchased by Peter Sheppard in 2016 from the Walpole family and is being meticulously restored to its Georgian splendour.
As a private home, this is a rare opportunity to explore a historic property and hear more about the history and restoration of the property.
