Nunnington Hall

Nestled on the quiet banks of the River Rye, you and yours can enjoy the atmosphere of this beautiful Yorkshire manor house and it's charming gardens. Explore the authentic historic rooms while listening to the Hall's many exciting tales and discover arguably one of the world's finest collections of miniature rooms up in the attic!

Rightly famed for its picturesque location, Nunnington Hall offers something for everyone to enjoy including an organic walled garden with spring-flowering meadows, naturally flamboyant resident peacocks and an ever changing programme of exclusive high profile art and photography exhibitions.

The River Rye meanders sweetly through the grounds and the original garden walls which create an intimate and idyllic atmosphere, with kingfishers and (admittedly elusive) otters to be found in the river.

There are also a World Class series of temporary exhibitions exploring differing topics of relevancy available on site to explore. Last year Mrs Fife's famous Baby House underwent sympathetic restoration, and the finished project is now available to explore in the West Bedroom.

Outside you can learn about gardening, play traditional games and even make a wish by tying a ribbon on their wishing tree. They also have seasonal children's trails on site to keep the youngest family members entertained. Plus there's a tearoom and tea garden plus a new souvenir shop on the top floor! And the daily conservation programme is also interesting as it combats the nibbling creatures after the garden fare in an environmentally friendly fashion worth learning about!
