Life and Thyme!

Nunnington Hall

We had a wonderful afternoon out at our local stately home, not the posh Castle Howard but the more modest Nunnington Hall.

Seriously what I love about this house is that the furniture looks as if you could use it without fear of wrecking it. No gold or posh things here. The atmosphere is homely. The guides in each of the rooms friendly and welcoming, children encouraged, no sniffy down your noses glares.

I love this picture in the nursery.

The gardens are lovely, smaller than your usual National Trust place , but with areas to encourage wild life and an organic walled kitchen garden

  1. I would love to see this in person. Thanks for sharing and making me feel like I was there. 🙂 Hugs, Tamara

  2. That looks like my kind of place. And the wallpaper is stunning.

  3. Lovely , I have not visited but would like to! We have Burton Agnes just down the road, they do wonderful Christmas Decorations all made by the family and with stuff from the garden. It’s not NT though it’s the Cunliffe-Listers.
    You have given me an idea with the wishing tree – I want one!
