As a National Trust member and living relatively close, I have visited Tyntesfield a number of times. Always enjoyable - both the house and the wonderful grounds. At this time of year the house is decorated as it would have been in Victorian times and the staff take on the role of the leading characters as they would have been... More

What a fantastic experience we had today. The house looked beautiful, the staff were all in costume and in role all the time we were there and it brought the house to life. Everyone was really friendly and made our Christmas experience very special. Thank you everyone!

Very very peed off with the National Trust visited,well endured Tyntesfield on Sunday 27th November. Greeted by costumed interpreter in first person mode and the horror began. This amazing house and contents were festooned in plastic holly, multiple massive Christmas trees lit by electric lights and decorations in modern materials.It got worse. A raucous crowd of young, not terribly well... More

Hello VetTed and thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you did not enjoy this advertised Christmas experience in the house. From feedback we have received last year and indeed this, your reflections are not shared by the vast majority of those visiting Tyntesfield during the Christmas period.

I visited the house and grounds for the first time recently and really enjoyed the trip. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous for walking around and there is so much to see within the house itself as well. I was particularly impressed by the Emotional Archaeology exhibition as it was so unique and unlike anything else I've seen. The detail of... More

I am a regular visitor to the grounds, but have only been in the house a couple of times. I love the size of the estate, and the large car park. The walk from the car park to the house is quite a long one for small children, but for those with mobility issues there is a shuttle bus that... More

A beautiful late autumn day found my husband, self and dog on a brisk walk round the grounds of this special house. There has been a lot of care given to refurbishing the house and grounds and I urge people to visit. The down side was the standard I'd catering - I fancied a bowl of soup and could have... More

Tyntesfield is a wonderful property with a wealth of original items, beautifully kept grounds (540 acres!), good restaurant and such great volunteers. Somewhat spoiled for us by the unnecessary inclusion of modern art in the house - I fail to see the need for what appeared to be plaster casts of various bits of dead cattle, and the biggest sorrow...

Hello Peter R and thanks for coming to see us. The use of contemporary art across many visitor destinations is just on of the ways we and others can tell stories in a different way. Different ways of doing things appeal to different people and hopefully gets them interested in the place or cause so they become supporters. This then... More

A wonderful NT property with huge grounds including formal gardens, extensive walks, kitchen garden, orangery and then the house and chapel in Gothic style and 100 rooms, of which many are open to discover. If you want to visit the house, it is best to prebook on line as otherwise you may not gain entry as there are timed tickets... More

Beautiful house and extensive grounds very well maintained. We were a group with young children over the autumn half term break, and there were plenty of activities laid on for them, including a spooky Hallowe'en trail with a map with a prize at the end, and lantern making and pumpkin carving with advance booking. It was good to see so... More

Lovely place to enjoy autumn. Lots of flowers still out in the kitchen garden. Amazing display of marrows etc in the orangery - it would have been good to have some information about them, especially the dark green ones with long 'handles'! Entry is rather baffling: two roped-off queuing areas - one for NT members and one for others -... More

Hi Anon_Bristol_12 and thanks for coming to visit. We have just the one ticket office with 1 door in and one out. On busy days we pop the ropes out as you saw, so it's easy when we have a big queue to deploy staff outside and then to separate out members from those who need to pay. It really... More
