Details

18th-century architectural masterpiece with landscape park and gardens. Nostell was crafted by hand and designed to impress.

Discover decorative interiors by Robert Adam, one of the first long case clocks made by John Harrison and a world-class collection of Chippendale furniture. In 2018, we're celebrating the 300th birthday of the Otley-born cabinet-maker and designer by telling the story of his relationship with the house and the Winn family and reinterpreting his Interior Worlds, the first floor state rooms, encompassing over one hundred objects supplied by Chippendale.

Nostell's parkland and gardens stretch over 300 acres, taking in wildlflower meadows, lakes and woodland. Visitors can enjoy seasonal scent and colour in the Kitchen Garden, take a stroll in the Menagerie Garden and jump, swing and slide in the popular adventure play area.
