We had a wonderful day out at Nostell Priory. The weather was one of those rare few days in the English Summer where it didn’t rain – in fact the sun even made an appearance just in time for our picnic lunch.
The reason we chose Nostell was for the free bike hire that they run in association with Sport England. They have a full range of adult and children’s bikes, complete with skid lids if required. The route takes you through a woodland trail which is picturesque and not too arduous. With gentle slopes leading through the meadows and wildlife it’s well worth the 1hr that it takes.
My advice would be get there early – 11am is the start time – as it is a popular activity.
