Nostell Priory - Review
Nostell Priory is an 18th-century architecture that includes a Landscape Park and gardens as well. Serving as a home to the Winn family for 300 years, today the site offers its visitors 121 hectares (300 acres) of parkland with a range of walks and views. Strolling in its lakeside walks or a newly planted orchard and an adventure playground gives you an opportunity to enjoy the wonders of British countryside mansion, set amidst nature. Inside the house, you can see a collection of Chippendale furniture that was once made especially for Nostell.

Nostell Priory, Leeds Reviews
We loved having our motorhome here. This time we only stayed one night but we shall be coming again. The trees and little mobile homes surrounding the site are so cute and cosy. Plus the easy access to the grounds of Nostell Priory is a real bonus. Next time we will bring our bikes and make the most!!! We will be back!!
We stayed at nostell priory midweek, the site itself was well maintained and the toilet and shower block were clean and warm. The night warden asked us to move our van as he thought it was blocking the road, i dont think it was but we moved it to the car park area as he had been so polite! The surroundings of the park are stunning and we took a picnic down to the house itself, providing you have decent weather this site is beautifully placed and you would be sure to have a great stay, There is a cafe on site but we never used it being tight northerners :-)
A very quiet and peaceful location with easy access into Nostell Priory parkland. Good for walking and enjoying the wildlife. A tidy site with fairly level pitches, shade from the trees was welcome. No motorhome service point so take a bucket to empty grey waste. Our pitch was not an upgraded one so only EHU but I believe upgraded pitches have water too. Shower and toilet area is clean if a little dated. No hot water in the ladies showers at 6pm. The showers have no pressure so the flow is woeful. Our 2 nights were pleasant and very quiet. The air ambulance station isn’t intrusive, the helicopter took off a couple of times but it wasn’t an issue. The cafe on site looked nice and popular with permanent residents, we didn’t use it so can’t comment on the food/drink.
We just got back from spending three nights here and there’s a few negatives and positives for my family and myself... let me first point out that we would return and is already planning on returning. The negatives.... and the rain was a contributing factor to this one, the mud! On the site it’s gravelled and on either side of us separating each caravan is grass, as it’s been raining it was quite muddy. We went with the intent to put our caravan awning up and found that trying to peg the awning down on the gravel was a useless task and they kept bending as we tried to hammer them in... in the end we had to set it up on the grass with mud... it carried on raining a few days and around the caravan was a muddy slippy mess and the tarpaulin we laid as a ground sheet was filled with mud along with the bottom of the awning... another negative is that there’s nothing entertaining for teenagers. Our teenage son on the second day was bored out of his mind. The shower had a mind of its own on one occasion when I was in the middle of my shower it decided to stop leaving me freezing and in addition it takes a little while to warm up. The positives is if you’re into nature walks it’s good for that. It’s peaceful and quite tranquil. It is also clean and the staff we encountered were warm and very accommodating, the bathroom is basic but the cleanliness is maintained. I would definitely recommend it for couples especially when it’s nice and dry.
Once a quite peaceful holiday retreat..... But NOT anymore there have the Yorkshire air ambulance stationed on the site and is very noisy when it takes off at all hours even during the night. I do support the much needed help of the air ambulance and I make regular donations but for nostal priory to advertise there site as been quite and peaceful when it no longer is.... Its giving people the wrong expression and some people are spending thousands on holiday homes it's not fair.
