Nunnington Hall (North Yorkshire): proof NT properties can have soul

It’s a National Trust property so forgive me if I was expecting a sterile museum, but I really enjoyed visited Nunnington Hall.  It’s set aside a river and has walled gardens.  There was a lovely long border, well-maintained allotment, cafe inside the house with a riverside terrace, and really not much noise but the buzzing of grasshoppers. There was also a bug man in one of the house’s rooms, showing us all the bugs they have found in the house and why each one is harmful.  Interesting and informative!

I rarely find somewhere I want to visit again, but I’ll happily go back to Nunnington Hall (and we thought we had already visited!).

When visited: June 2013
