We had a lovely few hours at Tyntesfield, it's a lovely property as you would expect from the National Trust. Beautiful grounds and a stunning house. Just be careful on the paths though - they are covered in a very loose fine gravel and no sooner had I said to my six year old to be careful not to run... More

Tyntesfield is one of the National Trust's flagship properties having recently completed a multi million pound renovation. The walk through the garden is lovely and as always so well maintained by the grounds staff. The colour combinations of the plants is beautiful in the formal gardens. The woodland walks are very peaceful, even on a busy day with plenty of... More

What an amazing place, wasn't expecting anything as beautiful as this.We didn't give ourselves enough time, so will definitely be going back. We visited on Friday 22nd July 2016 with friends (one needing a wheelchair) and had a lovely time. All of the staff were very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and courteous, nothing was to much trouble, and they were all... More

This is an absolutely beautiful national trust house and gardens. we booked the house in advance which I would highly recommend it would be shame to miss out on seeing such a beautiful house. whilst parts of the house are not viewable what is, is so well looked after it gives a wonderful sense of what the rest of the...

Everything about this National Trust house/Estate is amazing. The house furnishings and contents a feast for the eyes, with beautifully kept gardens and grounds to wander an absolute must for anyone visiting the outer Bristol area. We were a little disappointed to discover that the lake has no water! Maybe there was an explanation for this which we missed.

Hello hrhvic2ria and thanks for coming to see us. Great to hear you enjoyed your visit. The boating lake has not had any water in it for over 20 years. It's something that, in the time Tyntesfield has been in the care of the National Trust, we'd like to resolve but lots of things need to come together to allow... More

Booked in advance as suggested, so got through straight away. Quick walk to the house from the visitors centre taking you through the grounds. The volunteers were very helpful and keen to impart their knowledge. Well kept, I can see where the money goes. Came as a stop off on our way to holiday, and didn't disappoint. The restaurant was...

Tyntesfield was rescued by the National Trust from being auctioned off. It's a late nineteenth century home, very much in a mediaeval, arts and crafts style. Lots of turrets , twisted chimneys and stained glass. The wooden panelling and carving is amazing, the furniture was chosen by one of the family who also substantially designed the house. There are tapestries... More

Hello Harry S and thanks for your kind words. Great to hear you enjoyed your day with us. In future years we may well look at the last years of Gibbs ownership. We think this would be really interesting to potentially just show /allow access to where Lord Wraxall lived/used as it would be a very different visit to the... More

Such a vast improvement since it's opening in 2002 when you had to be bussed in from Nailsea. The house, gardens and grounds have been well looked after and many more rooms have been opened to the public. The formal gardens have been colourfully replanted and there are several walks within the confines of the estate. We even had a... More

Hot sunny day,glad it wasn't raining hard as the walk to the house is probably 10 minutes away.I was disappointed by the house itself,have visited far grander and finer than this.Scaffolding around parts of the outside as work being donee. The Gibbs collection in the one room alone is worth the visit.Quite an entrepreneur in his time purchasing paintings cheaply... More

Hello Brian I and thanks for coming to see us. As with all homes there certainly are grander and finer houses. Who The Trust present them is very much depending on the taste of the family who built them. Maybe you'll come and see us again when the weather is more suitable. More

I found the property to be interesting, but not exceptional as I prefer NT properties that are older and with a long history to them. the gardens were extensive and well laid out, this would entertain families and there are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the open air. The restaurant food was good, but I consider the prices... More
