About the Estate

The Kelling Estate dates back to 1913 and once belonged to Dutch oil industrialist, Sir Henri Deterding. The estate is set within 2,300 acres and was designed to be the finest sporting estate in Norfolk. It features the magnificent grade II listed mansion, Kelling Hall, as well as various cottages and outbuildings which have now been lovingly converted into the unique self-catering properties you see today.
