Nostell Priory is a magnificent National Trust house nestling in the heart of the West Yorkshire countryside. It was built by James Paine on the site of a medieval priory for Sir Rowland Winn, 4th Baronet, in 1733.
Later, Robert Adam was commissioned to complete the state rooms which are among the finest examples of his interiors. The Priory houses one of England’s best collections of Chippendale furniture, designed especially for the house by the great cabinet maker. Other treasures include an oustanding art collection with works by Pieter Brueghel the Younger and Angelica Kauffmann, the remarkable 18th-century doll’s house complete with its original fittings and Chippendale-style furniture, and the John Harrison long-case clock with its extremely rare movement made of wood. In the grounds are delightful lakeside walks with a stunning collection of rhododendrons and azaleas in late spring.
