Nostell is right on Wakefield’s doorstep situated between Wakefield and Pontefract. Even if you don’t have NT membership, you can pay for parking and get access to lots of the parkland area! Our favourite walk / cycle is past the house, down towards the lake to feed the ducks and swans and then up the hill to the obelisk. You can either return on the fun cycle path down the hill or walk turning in either direction to make a circular loop back to the lake!
With NT membership, you get access to the house, the gardens at the rear of the house, as well as the outdoor adventure play area!
