Wolterton Park was sold by the Walpole family in April 2016 and is now a private home. Originally built by Horatio Walpole; brother of Britain’s first Prime Minister Robert, who built nearby Houghton Hall, Wolterton was built in 1741. After standing empty for over 30 years, this Grade 1 listed stately home and cottages are being meticulously renovated.
We are planning to offer the estate in its entirety for up to 12 very special events every year. This may be a wedding, corporate event, celebration or party.
Wolterton Hall and parkland offer a setting like no other. This is a very special home and a unique venue and we plan to offer just 6 exclusive wedding celebrations each year for those looking for the ultimate wedding venues in Norfolk. Each will be completely individual and a true reflection of our guests style.
From the moment you decide to celebrate your marriage at Wolterton to the day you depart; we will be on hand to make the experience as simple, fun; rewarding and utterly special as possible.
Our House Manager will work with guests to plan a totally bespoke stay, our aim is to ensure that guests feel completely supported from their first enquiry until they leave the estate and we are happy to work with suppliers chosen by our guests or we have a comprehensive list of first class suppliers who we recommend to suit our guests style and budget.
Not only is Wolterton Hall one of the best Norfolk wedding venues. Additionally our grand state rooms offer the perfect space for entertaining larger groups and we can proudly boast a wider balcony than Buckingham Palace overlooking our 10 acre lake. This is a truly stately home experience.
The Wolterton estate can currently offer 3 individual cottages (2 with 3 bedrooms and a 1 bedroom cottage), our East Wing (with 7 bedrooms) and the Main Hall (with 10 bedrooms). All are exquisitely decorated with period furniture, artwork and rugs, our guests will enjoy marble bathrooms, Hans Grohe showers, a bespoke Smallbone kitchen and all mod cons.
Curtain fabrics are from Colefax and Fowler, and our guests are assured of a good night’s sleep on ViSpring beds with goose down duvets and Egyptian cotton bed linen.
Our guests have exclusive access to this 500 acre historic estate with its abundance of flora and fauna. Or there are many activities you and your guests can enjoy including golf, sailing, clay pigeon shooting, cycling and riding, all close to or on the estate.
We can arrange art, cookery, yoga or sporting breaks. We have a 10 acre lake with canoes and one of the largest walled gardens in the country and an excellent croquet lawn.
