30/3/2015 Attraction Review - Nunnington Hall
Nunnington Hall is one of our daughter's favourite places to visit - particularly at Easter time. During the Easter Holidays most National Trust properties will hold an Easter Egg hunt.
We arrived with Little John early in the afternoon. Birds were singing, children playing and families were enjoying picnics on the lawn. It really is an idyllic setting.
With no time to make a picnic, we chose to grab a bite to eat in the tea rooms. Littlemiss9 highly recommends the children's boxes. There are no plastic toys in these boxes - simply a packet of seeds. Littlemiss9 was delighted and had lots of fun enjoying the activites on the actual box.
This year's trail took us through the house and gardens looking for flags. Each flag represented a country that had a connection with the house itself. Fun and interesting for the kids and allowed the adults to have a really good time.
An art exhibition in the house was another highlight for all of us to enjoy. Incredible work by the students of Ryedale School and inspiring, particularly to Littlemiss12 as a student of Ryedale School, to see some of the things she could be achieving in a few years time.
As with all National Trust houses, the grounds at Nunnington Hall are just as spectacular as the building itself. Alot of effort has gone into making the grounds as enjoyable for children as they are for adults. There are now hands on activities for children showing off garden wildlife as well as the plants.
I could have stayed at Nunnington Hall all afternoon. There are plenty of deckchairs about so my advice would be to enjoy the house and gardens, then find your book, grab a chair and enjoy an afternoon of quiet relaxation.
