Two friends and myself had lunch today and we were very disappointed with the standard. I had beef, although tasty, was very tough. The orders arrived with omissions although we had said we would like horseradish none appeared. One friend had asked for no sprouts but she got them! They were not al dente but really not cooked at all... More

The National Trust is a fantastic experience for both young and old. But if you are not members This is not an event that I would recommend. Unless you have deep pockets. We have been here before and seen the whole house and gardens. They are worth seeing. But at £15-00 a head to visit only half the building.The remainder... More

The house is a gem as it is a true time capsual whilst the grounds are being lovingly restored. The special events such as the current Christmas theme are excellent.

First time we have visited and it was a lovely place to go. The house was ready for Christmas and the guides all dressed up. The grounds are well keep and easy to walk around with good paths and adequate signage. There is even a courtesy bus for those who may find the hill a bit of a challenge. The... More

I have now visited Tyntesfield at Christmas three times. It never disappoints as the decorations have a different style each year and there is always something different and of interest to see. In fact the visit is now a fundamental part of my pre Christmas traditions. I would particularly like to congratulate the volunteers who were dressed in Victorian costume... More

Bravo the National Trust! Such a period piece and so good it has been preserved. The house is - well just Victorian if you like that sort of thing but the setting is magnificent with gardens and parkland. Good place to eat too. Sorry - I didn't mean to be horrid about Victorian country houses but it is what it... More

I visited Tyntesfield on a hot summer's day and thoroughly enjoyed walking through the well-kept gardens, especially the walled vegetable garden. On walking up to the house I was impressed by the gothic revival style and found it interesting to see how the property has evolved over time. What made Tyntesfield stand out from other National Trust properties for me... More

Tyntesfield is a magnificent country house set in beautiful gardens. There are several buildings to view including the house, gardens, stables, industrial facilities and greenhouses, not to mention the cafes and other tourist information buildings. There was a special event of Queen Victoria inspecting troops during our visit, including shooting displays, which was particularly excellent. The gardens are very well... More

Hello Jonathan A. Thanks for taking the time to review your day. Great to hear you enjoyed your time with us including seeing Queen Victoria.
