Great place to relax either walking around the beautiful grounds (in any weather), visiting the wonderful stately home or coffee with friends in the courtyard. I'm a regular visitor to Nosetll Priory for these reasons. Great for all ages.

Is expensive if not a National Trust member but enjoyable way to pass a few hours. House is interesting and the parkland and gardens are a good walk. Very busy.

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.
