Details

Formally the site of a monastery, Nostell is an 18th-century architectural masterpiece with Adam interiors, Chippendale furniture, fine collections and landscaped park and gardens.

Step inside rooms that were dressed to impress, designed by James Paine and Robert Adam. Take time to discover the detail in exquisite plasterwork, hand painted wallpaper and amazing paintings. Nostell is famous for its collection of Chippendale furniture, one of the largest in the world.

Don't miss the Scattered Stories, Forgotten Stories project in 2016, which reveals previously unseen rooms and showcases the beautiful Georgian dolls' house as this season's object in focus. The team are keen to hear what visitors would like to see in some of Nostell's empty rooms - sit awhile in the new spaces and share your ideas.

The house is surrounded by 300 acres of parkland, lakes and formal gardens all waiting to be explored.
