Tyntesfield is a Victorian Gothic Revival house and estate near Wraxall, North Somerset, England. The house is a Grade I listed building named after the Tynte baronets, who had owned estates in the area since about 1500. The location was formerly that of a 16th-century hunting lodge, which was used as a farmhouse until the early 19th century. In the 1830s a Georgian mansion was built on the site, which was bought by English businessman William Gibbs, whose huge fortune came from guano used as fertilizer. In the 1860s Gibbs had the house significantly expanded and remodelled; a chapel was added in the 1870s. The Gibbs family owned the house until the death of Richard Gibbs in 2001.

Great day out. Good disabled access. Bit of a trek for disabled to main House, but a mini bus is sometimes laid on. There is much to see. A walled garden, orangery, church, stables and other lovely oddities along the way. A lazy day or quick afternoon tour should suffice. Lots of space around the house to walk your pooch. Plenty of level parking. Many activities through out the year. Safe open space away from busy roads.
Loved it, great day out and so much to do for all the family. I had my 2 year old with me and there was two little play areas for her one at the start in Home Farm and another down by the Walled Garden next to the Pavilion cafe which was perfect, I enjoyed a nice coffee and a delicious slice of T.L.C. cake whilst watching my little one explore and play, very peaceful. Popped into the House as well where everyone was so delightful and friendly, we were in search of knitted fireman so a little extra activity to do which was helpful! Thanks. We'll be back!
Love Rose Garden and Kitchen Garden, the Chapel was stunning. The house from outside looks glorious, but inside has a lot of sad story and requires a lots of work. If you are sensitive person house inside can make you bit sad. It has a history , a lots of interesting relicts, but... But something about this place feels cold. The coffee shop is very nice and friendly place. It a lots of space to sit and relax. Like I mentioned before gardens are beautiful. Place are huge. You can walk, run, play with with little ones, have picnics.
Beautiful National Trust venue with plenty to see and do or just take a picnic and relax in the masses of fields and shaded areas. Lovely gardens and flowers to have a walk around as well as the house. All of which is stunning. There are gift shops and places to eat and drink so you can really make this a full day. Truly is a lovely place and the staff are so very helpful. We visit regularly with a picnic and a few little outdoor games.
Gorgeous Victorian house, kept in excellent repair by the National Trust. The grounds are vast, with a number of beautiful gardens. The Rose Garden is particularly beautiful and the Orangery is also well worth a look (but it gets very stuffy on hot days). There is a little tea shop with outdoor seating and play area at the Orangery and the Cow Barn, near the entrance, provides cooked meals as well as cakes and teas. The National Trust is currently offering discounts for those that visit by bus, as an incentive, but remember to keep your ticket handy as they don't always remember to provide a voucher. Bring your own seating if you can, as the grounds are vast and there are not many benches provided. The walk from the bus stop to the entrance is also long and there is nowhere to sit along the way -- something to keep in mind on hot days.
Undergoing major maintenance, to fit modern fire alarm system, means lots of the rooms in the house are either closed or contents covered up. Still impressive as a house. Make sure you see the Chapel and ask lots of questions of helpful room guides. Gardens are extensive and enjoyable. Play areas for children.
Stunning country home. Set in beautiful grounds with fabulous gardens. The kitchen garden was amazing and lots of staff around to help you find your way. Various activities going on for the families and when we were there they had horse and carriage rides. Lots of space for walks and picnics.
Went on quiet day. Lovely location and interesting Victorian gothic revival style house. I am in manual wheelchair and would have found it very difficult with slopes between car park and house but pleased to say they transported me by minibus. Very helpful and friendly staff. For me ground floor access only. Building works in progress. Good eating facilities close to car park as well as shop and plants.
Great place for adults and children. There is a lovely main cafe and a smaller one down past the house. Up the hill from the house is a great wood with a fair few places for children to explore with play areas. Overall a great day out. Perhaps best to leave the buggy in the car if you’re heading out into the wood unless you go via the track at the top of the hill.
Great national trust property, plenty to do. Head up into the forest for woodland adventures or head into the house for the culture. Nice play park at the far end with a coffee shop along with all the veg growing in the gardens. There always seems to be something going on, great trails for the kids at Easter and Halloween. Lovely café at the main entrance in the old cow sheds.
A fantastic National Trust property. Car parking is available (free to members). The house is a time capsule of recent history with its own church, timber Mill etc and is well worth a visit. Timed tickets can be purchased at reception, but the tour is very popular in season. A nice large gift shop, second hand book shop and place selling plants and garden decorations. There is a lovely cafe which can also get busy. Some wonderful walks around the landscaped grounds, but restrictions exist on where you can take dogs. Staff at reception will provide you with a map of the dog areas. A courtesy bus takes disabled people to the house. Tickets and access to the grounds is through reception, where you can take your dog. A lift is available for disabled and elderly people. Particularly beautiful in Winter when the house and grounds are decorated and not quite so busy. Picnics welcome. Toilets available..
A good morning or afternoon out courtesy of the National Trust. Good parking and Coffee Shop facilities. Good food to go with it. Volunteers and staff are second to none giving good insight to the history and culture of the building. The building itself is interesting to walk around as are the grounds. Not necessarily somewhere that keeps the children’s interest but nonetheless a worthy outdoor experience that allows some fresh air and a walk for the family.
This is a beautiful and well maintained place. Unlike some other places, it is full of furniture and exhibits and you can play an old piano in the main hall. There are extensive and well maintained gardens around. It is a wonderful place for a day out especially in nice weather. It is a National Trust place so members visit for free. Highly recommended.
A beautiful estate house. Just as if the family has stepped out and you can look around. You need to book as there is still a demand. The grounds are really nice too.
A great property, with lovely gardens. The abbey has some beautiful stained glass windows which are great. Only on the second visit did we discover the kitchen gardens. Be aware that sometimes the house has limited entry - we didn't manage to get into the house on our second visit.
It is quite possibly a great place to view. However. Only 100 tickets per hour. During winter if a maximum of 500 are sold during the day, you will not get in but there are no notices until the car park on the ticket machine if you have a NT badge you will not spot it until the ticket counter, nor any one to say/advise whilst queuing in the car for 20 minutes. Best to ring ahead to avoid wasting your time.
Great place, I live locally so great to pop in to recharge my batteries. Since Tyntesfield opened I have been a regular visitor watching how the grounds and the house are being brought back to how they were once conceived. The newly restored orangery is a lovely building sitting adjacent to t=the flower garden and walled garden. The walled garden is interesting to look around and compare it's contents with your own garden. The rest of the grounds are lovely too. The house itself has been made water tight and weather proof so the items inside are protected. It is interesting to look at the vast collection of everyday items accumulated in the house since it was built. Their is a good teashop/restaurant in the cowshed as well as a NT shop.
Although we have visited Bristol many times over the years,we have never visited Tyntesfield. What a fantastic treat we had. In my opinion,it's one of The National Trust's best houses by far. The Chapel is outstandingly beautiful,took my breath away when I rounded the corner,but Don t take my word for it. Go and visit,you won't be disappointed. Top marks NT.
