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. To ensure entry and save time, book your tickets online.  To visit Tyntesfield and other attractions in Wraxall, use our Wraxall road trip planning website .

  • 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 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.
  • 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..
  • 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.
