Well worth a visit. Victorian Gothic building set in fabulous parkland. The house is almost as it was when the last owner passed away in 2002 so whilst a grand mansion it is easy to imagine living there (with a small army of assistants). You can wander freely around the rooms and the room volunteers are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.... More

We went to the Kate Dimbleby concert at Tyntesfield, which I believe is the first concert to be held in the hall of the building. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing music in such an intimate venue and hope there will be a lot more to come in the future. The reason however I feel compelled to leave a review is the... More

Hi kevin w. Thanks for your visit and sorry to here you think the National Trust are 'money grabbing'. As a charity, just like all others, we do rely on the money donated to us, through the purchase of goods or services and through membership. Without this money we cannot continue to look after the special buildings, landscapes and coast... More

Having passed the sign to Tyntesfield on the M5 many times on Wednesday 15th April we decided to visit only to find a power cut! Not really a problem but it did limit the availability of hot food. Tyntesfield is about 15 minutes from the M5 but in a different world. Car parking is good and close to the reception... More

Visited over Easter weekend, although Tyntesfield was very busy it was still charming. Lots of families on Easter Egg hunting activities which was charming. National Trust activities well organised. A pity the house was already fully booked by the time we arrived but the grounds are lovely to wander through. I wish my kitchen garden was as neat and tidy!

Wonderful National Trust location. Huge house which you are free to explore at your leisure. Very well organised and a great restaurant, although not cheap. Extensive grounds which are beautifully maintained and you could easily spend the day there - take a picnic and just absorb the intimacy of it all.

This is THE most wonderful NT house, or great beauty and interest - no wonder such a fuss was made of the acquisition and restoration! I loved the way its kept secret until you are through the ticket office and round some of the beautifully landscaped gardens.

Our third visit! Great for a walk around both House & Gardens. Good for all ages. One of the better NT properties to visit in the South West. Plenty of parking, access for wheelchair users, cafe, toilets, shops...and great ice cream :-)
