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
