Staff were very informative. The house is gorgeous! We did the walking garden tour. That was lovely. It was boiling hot. The lady taking us around made sure she found as much shade as possible for us to stand in while giving us some fascinating information. Plenty of places to get some food drink or ice creams!! Also plenty of... More

We traveled a long way to see Tyntesfield. We had heard so much about it from the TV, various reviews and friends. The house interior was very dark. We realise the fine objects in the house must be protected but surely a better form of lighting could be found to brighten it up. The last few rooms we saw were... More

Hello chrismary1 and thanks for letting us know about your day. You're right we do have to carefully monitor the light into the rooms in the house to protect from light damage the furniture and objects in them. It's a tough challenge and one that all historic homes have with indigenous collections. With over 50,000 objects in our care, from... More

There's more to TYntesfield than the house, stunning as it is. A free flow system operates on the ground floor and reverts to a one way system when you climb the magnificent staircase to the first floor. This leads you through the bedrooms to the magnificent chapel. There are usually children's trails and on the day we visited, a discovery... More

We took our dog and although you can't go in the main gardens you can walk through the estate on a number of walks. We found a area of large play equipment and Forest play area where the children spent ages playing. Fabulous views and wonderful nature trip out.

Took 42 Probus members to Tyntesfield for what turn out to be a lovely day. Both the house and gardens are well worth a visit. The National Trust staff and volunteers were very helpful and knowledgeable especially the two guides that took us around the Gardens.

It was a lovely sunny day when we visited Tyntesfield Abbey for the first time. The house is hidden from view as you approach from the car park. The path takes you to the rear of the house. We arrived shortly before the house opened at 11:00 and it wasn't yet busy. The house offers a fascinating insight into how... More

Gothic architecture at its finest and beautiful grounds to walk around in the sunshine. Very well worth a visit. The attraction is very well supported by a group of very friendly and interesting volunteers who are always ready to advise, inform and in some instances have a bit of fun with regarding some of the features of the house -...

A comfortable house that is homely and fully reflects the strength of the Victorian gothic design. It made a change from the grand estates of the national trust of which we have seen several. I really enjoyed the visit and the staff were enthusiastic. I didn't use the tea room.
