We’ve been to Nostell lots of times, but have stuck to the gardens and house on our explorations. Today I thought a visit to the parkland was much overdue. I’m so pleased I tried it, it was so beautiful there and a great place if you only have an hour to spare!
Parking: Plenty in the NT carpark, free to members or £7 all day.
Facilities: Cafe and toilets at the house (do not need to pay to access). Within the gardens is a good play area, free entry to NT members.
Route: Available on property map https://nt.global.ssl.fastly.net/documents/maps/1431729758418-nostell.pdf
Accessibility: Technically it’s not classed as buggy friendly but I’d be confident with a robust buggy on a dry day, some of the paths are grassy. Not suitable for scooters, small bikes etc.
Dogs: There were plenty of dog walkers about, but you might want to detour in places where cows are grazing.
The route takes you past the lake and through fields up to Obelisk lodge.
The route back includes a path through grazing land where you got close and personal with the livestock!
It’s a great little walk and I’ll definitely be back with my little one!
