We had our front boundary wall rebuilt yesterday and I'm just wondering how
long it would take for the wall to get to full strength. We'd like to drill
some holes to mount a plate onto the wall but I've no real idea how long to
wait (few days, week, month?). I realise it may well depend on the mix of
the mortar - which I don't know.

Yes, at these winter tempeatures that is wise.
In general mortar at sort of 10-15 degrees if sesnible mix and withiut
lime is solid in about 24hours, tho real strength takes a lot longer.
Cold weather and/or lime in the mix slows it down much further than that.
A week sounds safe, and several months to settle in properly.
