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
