The architecture of Nymans 

The medieval manor that you see today is not as old as it seems. Before any of the Messel family lived here, Nymans was a plain Regency style house, probably built around 1839 by a man named George Harrington.


Eating and shopping

Feeling peckish?

Our kiosk has reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including closure of our seating areas, screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone.
