Details

Historic Walton Hall is a beautiful Georgian Mansion on an island surounded by a twenty six acre lake, accessible only by a a picturesque bridge.

Formally the home of Charles Waterton, an eccentric nineteenth century traveller and naturalist, Squire Waterton transformed the lake and surrounding parkland into the world's first wild fowl reserve and sanctuary, and many species of wildlife still breed here today.

Carefully restored to much of its former glory, the beautiful setting, recognised as the worlds first nature reserve, makes Waterton Park Hotel the place to enjoy, remember and revisit
