Nunnington Hall

Nunnington Hall by Tracey PhillipsNunnington Hall by Tracey Phillips

The sheltered walled garden, with spring flowering organic meadows, orchards and flamboyant peacocks, complements this beautiful Yorkshire house, nestling on the quiet banks of the River Rye. 

Enjoy the atmosphere of this former family home. Explore period rooms while hearing the Hall's many tales and then discover one of the world's finest collections of miniature rooms in the attic.

The Hall also holds a changing programme of contemporary art and photography exhibitions.

There's plenty for families to do too, from dressing up to getting muddy in the mud-pie kitchen! 

Why not make a day of it? Its proximity to Rievaulx Terrace (only 7.5 miles) makes it an ideal double visit in one day.
