The Nostell Estate is a marvellous place to work & live

Our business, agriculture & residential tenants will all tell you as much.

A place as special as The Nostell Estate speaks for itself. The estate is home to over 50 businesses, three working arable farms and 40 families. Many of our wonderful tenants have worked and lived on Nostell land alongside Lord St Oswald and his family for decades. Still, this unassuming community remains somewhat of a hidden gem. Places are precious. If you find yours, you’ll want to hold on to it.

Sound too good to be true? Allow our tenants to tell you why The Nostell Estate is a better place to work.

A place to thrive

I knew from my first visit that I wanted to be based here. The grounds and facilities are so well maintained by Peter, Gayle and the team. Having the option to get regular exercise and fresh air contributes to my overall well-being. I love it!

Rachel Kirk, HomeLife Financial Solutions

I was born into farming, and you could say it runs in my blood. I love what I do, and it’s been a pleasure working on the land at The Nostell Estate for the last quarter-century.

Walk-and-talk therapy is an excellent alternative to the traditional therapy room. It’s just as it sounds – we talk while walking during the session. The Nostell Estate is an ideal location for this style of therapy, with National Trust Nostell Priory Parkland just a stone’s throw away.

Emily Del-Grande, Therapeutic Counselling

I had no idea The Nostell Estate existed until I came to visit a WAW member here. I was blown away by the surroundings! It’s amazing, so beautiful and a bit of a hidden gem.

It feels like a holiday when the sun’s shining! There are lots of horses in the surrounding fields, and my daughter’s pony is in one of them. It’s a very outdoor lifestyle, which I enjoy.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance at The Nostell Estate

We’re proud that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) chooses to call The Nostell Estate home. The YAA joined us in 2013 on the old Nostell Priory Rose Gardens site, following an extensive search for a central Yorkshire location. YAA HQ now features a functional office space, a large hangar for one of its two helicopters and onsite accommodation for its crew.

Tenants often hear the YAA helicopter taking off and rising above the trees from a large helipad at the back of the YAA building. The YAA operates from its Nostell base seven days per week, 365 days per year and greatly appreciates the support of Lord St Oswald and the estate team. 

The YAA relies on public donations and fundraising to operate. Click the link below to find out how you can support the charity.

Explore National Trust Nostell Priory

Stroll through the gates of the Estate Yard, and you’ll happen upon the National Trust Nostell, a Georgian treasure house with landscaped parklands and gardens. Dogs love bounding off into 330 unspoilt acres. The Stableyard shop, café and book exchange are a welcome rest stop for walkers. If you’re here without the dog, there’s plenty to discover: a pyramid-shaped Obelisk Lodge, a pretty Menagerie and miles of purpose-built cycle tracks. Please note: admission charges apply to the house and gardens.
