Nostell is one of the greatest treasure houses of the north of England, surrounded by 300 acres of parkland and landscape gardens. Created as an ambitious statement by the Winn family between 1725-1785, generations added to the richness of the house, from Robert Adam interiors and a world-class collection of Thomas Chippendale furniture to priceless paintings and antique curiosities. The surrounding network of lakes, meadows and ancient woodland are brimming with wildlife, with key features including a working Kitchen Garden, Pleasure Grounds and the enchanting Menagerie Garden.
