Head to the Servant's Hall on the ground floor of the house and discover the 'Behind the Walls' exhibition.
The exhibition highlights some of the human stories of 18th century Nostell, focusing on Sabine Winn, the Swiss lady of the house from 1765.
Behind the luxurious interiors and opulent collections, life inside Nostell was not as it seemed from the outside. Sabine experienced issues with her mental wellbeing back then that we can still relate to now.
Sabine had a keen interest in herbal remedies, medicinal foodstuffs, and cosmetics. In her time at Nostell, she is likely to have used the gardens as a source for natural ingredients for her own recipes and those inherited from her predecessors.
As you meander through the gardens, look out for labels next to some of the herbal plants and discover their medicinal uses.
