Tyntesfield, Wraxall

(4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Although we've been members of the National Trust for a very long time, we knew virtually nothing about Tyntesfield before we visited - despite me having lived quite close by many years ago. We visited only because it was convenient whilst we were in the area on holiday. But it was one of our highlights. It's a crazy place. Full of atmosphere and interest. A spectacular Gothic pile, with amazing contents, imaginatively presented. One of the best NT property we've every visited. Loads to do. so much you'll probably need a return visit!
  • What a beautiful house and woodlands. Many thanks to National Trust Tyntesfield for hosting Bristol Orienteering Klub's Saturday Winter Series event, it was lovely to run in such beautiful surroundings and makes me proud to be a National Trust member. I will definitely return for a more leisurely visit and bring visiting friends too!
  • One of the most amazing NT properties with a full range of events. Parking charges for non NT members, and can get busy at weekends, holidays and with events. We especially like the child friendly events and clubs.
  • Amazing National Trust property with huge grounds. Tyntesfield house is beautiful with numerous rooms to explore. Knowledgeable staff point out areas of interest and add context and the history of the house. The grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained. Highly recommended!
  • A gem of the National Trust - great food, catering facilities and shop, buildings steeped in history, good seasonal events, beautiful outdoor gardens and walking... Tyntesfield has it all, made especially good by the amazing staff!
