We had not been for a while and this visit was the best yet. The house is now self guided tours which is so much better than before as you can go at your own pace and skip round the people who stand aimlessly locking the view for no apparent reason. The chapel is particularly lovely. The cafe in the... More

Now owned by National Trust, this is one house well worth visiting. Like stepping back in time everything is as it was years ago. Set in stunning grounds,

This is one of our favourite places to visit. Our boys love to roll down the hills, play in the 'boats' in the 'boating lake', make dens, climb trees... We rarely go in the house but make the most of the great outdoors at Tyntesfield. Weather dependent we take a picnic but the cafe and coffee shop are always well... More

This house is well worth a visit. It is in a lovely location, although be warned if you have mobility problems as there is quite a walk from the car park. The staff are very dedicated and obviously enjoy divulging fascinating information to others. It gets very busy here during the school holidays and at weekends.

We loved this house. There is clearly still a lot of work to do on restoring it, but the rooms that have been finished are beautiful. The guide book was very well written with lots of information about the house and its owners. The family albums full of photographs of the family taken in the house really brought it to... More

This experience of visiting Tyntesfield House and grounds is a day that I will remember for the rest of my life. It was a wonderful sunny day and the grounds are a picture. The house is beyond words and so beautiful. The volunteers were helpful and very keen to tell you all of the stories. It will be wonderful in... More

Tyntesfield, just a stone’s throw away from Bristol, was not built as a bold and extravagant statement of wealth, power or politics. Its purpose was simple; to serve as a family home. All of the furniture in the house belonged to the four generations of the Gibbs family that lived there. There is a long walk from the car park... More

We enjoyed a few hours here at this property. This year it focusses on Antony Gibbs one of the residents (they change the focus to keep it enjoyable). Many rooms to explore. Also unique in the fact it has a church within the building.

The rude volunteer in the kitchen spoilt this visit. She needs to learn some people skills as well as manners.

We happened upon this attraction quite by accident and were so pleased to have been able to visit, albeit a short one. This is an extraordinary home and all should be thankful that the National Trust was able to save it pretty much in tact. It gives you a good perspective of like and style in the Victorian age. I...
