For 2021 we have an exciting programme, including a number of exhibitions, trails and workshops with full details on our website. Visitors are welcome to explore our gardens and grounds, which include woodland walks. The estate sits in the beautiful Hindwell Valley on the English Welsh border close to the picturesque Welsh market town of Presteigne and the internationally renowned town of books, Hay on Wye.

The Trust is a registered charity and cares for the former home, artist's studio and 250 acre estate of the late Sir Sidney Nolan, who was a leading artist of the 20th century. The Trust also owns a large collection of Nolan’s works, his library and personal archive. Most famous for his Ned Kelly series of paintings, today we celebrate his life-long experimentation and passion for creativity as well as his love for the environment.

Our exhibitions and events present artwork from our own collection as well as exhibitions by leading and emerging contemporary artists, displayed in our 17th century tithe barn and Rodd Court, a Jacobean manor house, which was the last home of Sir Sidney. It is a remarkable, relatively untouched example of 16th-century architecture. The Trust also runs education and residency programmes, which support children, young people, adults and artists to learn, exchange ideas and create.

Tea, coffee and cake is available. Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in all outside spaces.

Why not extend your visit by staying at our lovely Orchard cottage.
