Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Tintinhull Garden, located in Tintinhull, near Yeovil in the English county of Somerset, is a small 20th century Arts and Crafts garden surrounding a 17th-century Grade I listed house. The property is in the ownership of the National Trust. It is visited by around 25,000 people per year.
The house started as a small farmhouse in 1630 but was enlarged into its current form in the 18th century. The house was the property of the Napper family for centuries. It was given to the National Trust in 1954. The Arts and Crafts style garden is modeled on that at Hidcote Manor Garden in Gloucestershire. It was originally laid out by Phyllis Reiss and developed by Penelope Hobhouse.

  • Small but interesting. There is a rare Chinese Varnish Tree. Small cafe for drinks / cakes. Small shop and plant tree. Worth going if you only have an hour or three
  • Lovely gardens to walk round. The ground is flat but a bit of a bumpy surface for a wheelchair user. Its not a huge garden but a very peaceful place. There is a nice tea room and shop in the old stables.
