18th-century architectural masterpiece with landscape park and gardens
Built on the site of a medieval priory, Nostell has been the home of the Winn family for 300 years. Commissioned by Sir Rowland Winn in 1733, James Paine built the house. Later additions by Robert Adam created exceptional interiors.
Visitors can explore 121 hectares (300 acres) of parkland with a range of walks and views. Gardens include lakeside walks, a newly planted orchard and an adventure playground.
Inside the house, see a collection of Chippendale furniture made specially for Nostell. Paintings by Brueghel, Hogarth and Kauffmann. A John Harrison (Longitude) longcase clock and an 18th-century dolls' house. The restored Butler's Pantry is also open to view this year.
To commemorate the centenary of the start of World War One Nostell Priory will be holding events and workshops to uncover the small stories of the Great War. There will be lots of opportunities to join in, share your own stories and contribute to our wall of red poppies and white butterflies. To find out more about 'Red Poppies and White Butterflies' and to read some of the small stories we have already discovered visit the 'Our Work' page.
