Firstly, although this is a historic building don't be put off. You can opt for visiting House and/or the surrounding grounds. Those of you with kids can let them lose in the huge grounds to use up all their energy. There are plenty of picnic spots. At the Promenade Cafe there's an adventure playground to keep them busy while you... More

We visited Tyntesfield on a bank holiday weekend (Saturday) so we were lucky that we arrived early. Got into house and saw the re-enactments. The house was fantastic and a special mention must be given to the volunteers inside the house. They were knowledgeable, friendly and overall made the house even more interesting. Very impressed and I think they were... More

This is a great National Trust attraction. The gardens are beautiful, full of flowers and the house has some amazing furniture in it. Check out the amazing architecture of house and built in chapel. A peaceful and spiritual retreat.

We liked Tyntesfield so much, we stopped on the way back from our Devon holiday as well, to view the house, as we didn't do that on the way down. Superb house built and extended on the riches from guano, imported from Peru. Checkout the snooker room with the custom made snooker table. Great restaurant for snacks, in a converted... More

Being disabled(not in a wheelchair but can't walk far) I found it very difficult to access the house.the route from the car park takes you through the cafe area,although there is a lift to the next area you then have to walk 100 metres to the transport(uphill).the bus stop near the house is another 100metres from the entrance. We fully... More

Dear Chris S. Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear you found Tyntesfield 'disappointing'. We welcome hundreds of visitors each year who have limited mobility. As a conservation charity we are limited in how we can alter the buildings and land in our care, to suit all needs without spoiling what our visitors have come to enjoy. We do try... More

It's hard to find even using a satnav but once you are there it's worth it. A lovely house that is worth exploring with beautiful grounds and lots of places to wander and explore. Would be good for a picnic but we used the café where the food was good and not badly priced. A good National Trust venue.

We sadly arrived at 4pm on first day and house tickets were no longer being issued as they have a maximum number each day. We still went in and did the grounds plus they had a re-enactment of the American Civil which we watched about the last 30 minutes of. Then we did the grounds and gardens which are lovely.... More

Hello David H. Thanks for coming to see us. Getting anywhere early over a Bank Holiday Weekend is a top tip. Tickets for the house can be pre-booked by following the link on our home page www.nationaltrust.org.uk/tyntesfield to avoid any disappointment. Always recommended at weekends or during school holidays. If you don't pre-book tickets are issued on a first come... More

This National Trust property is a fantastic place to take children. We had a wonderful exploring adventure around the gardens. There are wonderful willow sculptures and several playground areas for the children to use their imagination whilst playing. There are different cafes and restaurants to visit, a lovely shop and even second hand gardening books for sale. We even bought... More

Dear John W. Thank you for your review. We can't see for certain which day you visited but can assure you that we do have wasp/insect traps around the outside seating areas.

Very interesting gothic property in spacious grounds with sweeping views. The volunteers are knowledgeable about the history of the house and detail of artefacts. The grounds are beautifully maintained with flower beds, kitchen garden and orangery. There was a WW1 exhibition on at the time of our visit with lots of activities for children and a Sopwith Pup fighter aircraft... More
