I have quoted years to visit Tyntesfield and have done so now the NT offer online booking on their website, which I would recommend to anyone travelling any distance. The gardens are lovely and not to be missed, especially the kitchen gardens which are a reasonable walk from the house. Inside the house is very impressive with signing architectural features....

My partner and I went with his parents, and we were not disappointed, in fact there was so much to see, we all decided we need more visits to take it all in. A magnificent building with quite honestly the most beautiful gardens we had seen, plus a chance to buy their plants very cheaply, (mum in law is now... More

The rooms in the home are very nice & the exhibits are interesting. The gardens & other buildings are unremarkable. It is also difficult to find if you are not familiar with the area. I saw this early on in an 18 day driving trip of the UK & if it had been later in the trip I probably would... More

I am a regular visitor to tyntesfield and usually take visiting friends. It never disappoints although to get the best of the ground and gardens the weather can be critical. New blinds have been installed recently which have transformed the experience in the house, enabling you to see the views the family would have seen from the windows. As a... More

I've been looking forward to visiting this Estate for ages - we're currently visiting various NT sites in an ever increasing circle from home. Unfortunately both of us came home feeling underwhelmed. The grounds were very green & well maintained and as with other NT sites, loads of places for families to picnic & play. Sadly for us, the planted... More

I had wanted to visit Tyntesfield for some years and so was looking forward to this visit. My partner had told me much about the house based on the guided tours she had experienced. She had been fascinated by the story of how it had been hardly changed for many years when the National Trust acquired it, the story of... More

Hello selimap and thanks for your feedback about your day with us. We are sorry to hear you thought the house presentation was dishonest. Guano as a subject and business is explained in the Billiard Room. As Antony did not play an active part in the family business, he wasn't considered bright enough, focussing on where much of the wealth... More

Lovely house and gardens. Timed entries, so never too full. Fantastic pond. Tea room is spacious, though go early for the soup.

We have spent most of this weekend at Tyntesfield and our kids have absolutely loved it. After driving past and seeing the sign advertising new playgrounds we decided to give it a go this weekend and we've been very impressed. Our two boys - 5 and 2.5 - are shattered now. They loved all the different playgrounds - particularly the... More

This was my second visit to Tyntesfield-the first was about 5 years ago when the scaffolding was still up on the roof! It was a brilliant visit, my sister and I spent 6 hours there as so much to see; the rooms, furniture, artwork etc are beautiful and I thought that the volunteers were the best I've ever come across...
