You really wouldn't believe this peaceful place is only minutes from the hustle and bustle and noise of Bristol. Absolutely beautiful. The walk from the car park through the grounds is beautiful even in the Winter. It was nice that the house stays open unlike some other National Trust properties. Plenty of knowledgeable staff inside to tell you the history... More

So many things to do there, great house, lovely gardens. I also love the fact that you can do night runs at certain times of the year and also running at weekends. The house is beautifully decorated at Christmas. Fab!

National trust property set in a beautiful landscape. On arrival you go through an excellent cafe, serving very large coffees which were good. The food offering less so but that may be seasonal. The walk to the house is a good ten minutes but a truly worthwhile experience. Very well informed and friendly guides in each room chatted through through... More

we finally got around to visiting after promising ourselves for a few years and whether we had watched too many to programs about it I don't know but we were left feeling a little underwhelmed.We expected many more collections and treasures than were on display but what was on show was very well displayed and there were more than enough...

We arrived shortly after the Sherlock Holmes shoot, in the dead of the night the great house had been handed over to the BBC. Cumberbatch and friends parachuted in at 3 in the morning, cranked out 5 hours of footage and left. The staff played out quite rightly the mystique of this dramatic bastion of gothic splendour. The Gibbs family's... More

Tyntesfield is now owned by the National Trust, but used to be the country retreat of the Gibbs family. The last Gibbs still lived in it some 15 years ago. The Gibbs family became exceedingly rich in the industrial revolution by being the sole traders for Europe of Peruvian guano. You visit the farm houses, as well as the estate... More
