We say

Kate and Nick Bentley's inspiring art gallery in Nunnington, not far from Helmsley, has made a lot of friends since it opened in 2013. It's devoted to contemporary sculpture, ceramics and visual art by both emerging and established artists, and the range is pretty astounding – over fifty artists and 700 pieces on show at any on time. What visitors really like is the approach and tone here – Kate and Nick are not arty-farty but "straight-talking real people" and hands-on exploration of the art on show is encouraged. A fire burns in the winter and there's usually coffee and tea on the go. The gallery is at Nunnington Studios in a pretty village in the Howardian Hills, and with the National Trust's Nunnington Hall on the doorstep and any number of lovely old country pubs nearby, this is a great day-out destination, especially if you have art on your mind.
