“Wonderful National Trust Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

We visited this National Trust House on a wet & dismal day but the experience soon raised our spirits. The welcome & expertise of the Volunteering staff & Guides is really something special. The house is a revelation.

For a day out in a great location & superb gardens don't hesitate to try this lovely place.

And, of course, have a cup of tea & scone in the restaurant!!!!!!!

“Small, but very pretty. Great volunteers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

As long as you realise there isn't enough here to entertain you for more than an hour or two, this is well worth a visit. What impressed me most was how friendly the volunteers were and how keen they were to tell you things about the rooms, which is was a nice surprise as in so many NT properties, information about what you are seeing only comes at an extra cost, if at all, in my experience. Whilst volunteers in other properties will always answer your questions, you need to have questions in the first place, which isn't always easy. Information was offered in many of the rooms without any prompting and it was enthusiastic and friendly.

It is perhaps a shame that more rooms aren't open to see and that some rooms are displayed as rooms that they never were (the dining room), but on the whole I really enjoyed our short visit. The National Trust should do the room steward training here!

“Gorgeous property and grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2010

The drive from York alone would make this property worth a visit. It is in the Howardian Hills, not as famed as the Dales or the Moors, but just as lovely in their own way. You pass through several candy box villages on the say, most notably Sutton on the Forest. The house itself is a wonderful eighteenth century property that feels like real people actually lived there. I was there for filming a short historical piece and the steward was wonderful; the staff act as though they are happy to have visitors. The shop was well stocked and although I wasn't able to stay for lunch the food smelled delicious.

“pretty and quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2008

Nunnington Hall is a national trust property. It has good parking facilities and reasonable access to the property for disabled visitors although I didnt notice if they could get access to the whole property.

The gardens are very picturesque and relaxing with peacocks strolling around the grounds which made for a few good snapshots

I have to say, I joined the national trust in March and of the several properties I have visited this has by far the most approachable volunteers/staff. They were quick to hand you leaflets to read, answered any questions and more importantly for me as a younger visitor didnt follow you around eyeing you up suspiciously as if you are going to steal the silver (Wallington Hall, Northumberland in case you wondered!!!) They made you feel very welcome and I will definately be visiting again!

The coffee shop is within the hall and again, the staff working within the coffee shop were pleasant and helpful - the cream teas were gorgeous!!!!
