Nostell Priory is also part of the National Trust and is located close to Wakefield, in Yorkshire. I visited this place last year under a bright blue sky, how lucky !
We spent an afternoon there, visiting the house and the gardens. The house was built in the XVII century on a previous 12th-century priory dedicated to Saint Oswald. During the building of the house, they spared no expense until … the money ran out. As a result a lot of room remain unfinished.
In each room, a volunteer gave us some information and quirky facts and I found it really nice !
After the house we visited the grounds, especially the Kitchen Garden which is located behind the Orangery. This is mainly an orchard, with a lot of apple trees and vegetables. There was also some bright flowers that I enjoyed taking picture of.
