We had a lovely day out at Nostell Priory. Before the Hall opened we had a walk through their lovely gardens and were especially impressed by their banana trees. We then had our lunch in the cafe, very enjoyable, before exploring the Hall. The Hall...More

A nice day out, lots of different paths to walk and open spaces for kids to go on bikes/dogs to run. There’s an enclosed area with a 4 foot fence primarily for letting dogs off-lead. Cafe is expensive so we’ve never bought anything in there!

We went out of our way travelling on the A1 to visit this confusing House. I don't think the N.T. knows what to call it, its Nostell in the N.T. guide book but Nostell Priory and sometimes Nostell House at other times. The signage on...More

Some parts of the grounds are free - you pay to walk in the area nearest the house where footpaths lead to the lake and it's well worth doing. There are large areas though that are free.
