Noted for its manicured gardens and an extensive collection of art, Tyntesfield is a Victorian Gothic Revival house and estate named after the Tynte baronets, prominent local noblemen. For nearly 200 years the estate was owned by the Gibbs family, who greatly expanded the house and packed it with over 30,000 items. The family’s treasures include some unusual objects, such as a jewel-encrusted chalice and an unexploded World War II bomb. Arguably the most important painting of the estate’s collection of fine art is a 17th-century work by Zambrano of St. Lawrence, which hangs in the main hall. Join a guided tour to explore the vast house and the surrounding parks and gardens.

  • We are NT members so when we were diverted off the M5 on a trip from Dorset to Cheshire we went to Tyntesfield. As members who already support the trust we did not have to pay to park. We have been pr...  more »
  • The grounds are well maintained: gardens, farmland and the green houses as the vegetable patches. But the house is completely amazing!! We only signed up as NT members a couple of months ago and this ...  more »
  • We stopped off here on our way back to the Westcountry from the Midlands and we were pleasantly surprised by how close to the M5 it is (about 15 minutes). The roads are good and it was easy to find. W...  more »
  • one of the most outstanding National trust place I have ever been. Beautiful, huge estate, garden, very well maintained with nice taste, very peaceful, quiet. The house has a very rich collection of art, designed with a good taste, too, inside and outside is just as a Fairy-tale castle. There are free NT buses for those less able to walk. I spent there almost all of my day to walk around and enjoy what is there. Amazing. Bit of a hidden place on the top of a small hill, but worth to see.
  • Twice I have visited with my disabled husband and been unable to access the house and gardens because the lift is not working. The first time the lift was completely covered over with decorated boards so not a recent breakdown. The only other ways to get in are up a couple of flights of stairs or up a steep hill. The disabled bus does not run from the car park so involves a bit of a walk and the disabled scooters are only available on the upper level! We were most disappointed that as members we are denied access.
  • Yet another beautiful National Trust property. This one has a cafe and restaurant at the top of the grounds and another at the bottom. The house is unique, the first Victorian Gothic revival mansion I've visited in beautiful grounds. The shop is bigger than most and I was very glad to see that there were some cheaper items, particularly for children. I'll definitely return for another visit.
  • So much to see and do. Really enjoyed the house tour. All room guides very knowledgeable.
  • Beautiful home with a very interesting tale to tell. The two coffee shops are adequate but certianly provides nothing special as with many other national trust properties. Beware of the huge amount of walking required even if the bus is used. Not suitable for anyone with moderate mobility issues. Considering the national trust attracts elderly individuals they should really make a grater effort in this regard.
