Woolverstone is a small village situated some 4 miles from Suffolk's county town of Ipswich. The River Orwell flows along its northern boundary.
The village is within a conservation area and situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The conservation area was designated in 1989 and a further appraisal was carried out in 2008 by Babergh District Council's Conservation Officer and adopted. You can find a copy of this under 'Parish Council'
Woolverstone owes much of its present shape to the Berners family who bought the estate and built, amongst other properties in the village, the Hall which is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Palladian style.
If you have just moved to the village, you may find the Welcome Pack of help.
