Tyntesfield, just a stone’s throw away from Bristol, was not built as a bold and extravagant statement of wealth, power or politics. Its purpose was simple; to serve as a family home.
Once hidden and inaccessible, the ordinary and extraordinary lives and possessions of four generations of the Gibbs family are ready for discovery.
The garden and estate balance faded beauty and function with an abundance of nature; celebrated in ornate Gothic carvings that decorate the house. Flower-filled terraces, an empty lake, woodland, champion trees and productive kitchen garden give further opportunities for exploration.
With each season you will experience a new side to Tyntesfield as they open doors and change perspectives on this much-loved family estate.

31 Jan 2019: First visit to a beautiful house and garden which was free as a National Trust member, but costs a lot if not. Was really impressed with the house and garden however, there was a lack of volunteers...
26 Jan 2019: I agree again with previous reviewers that the interiors of Tyntesfield are need to be redisplayed and show much more of the collection.
We also visited Tyntesfield when it first came into the hands...
25 Jan 2019: We visited this house very soon after the NT has acquired it, when you had to catch the bus from Tesco.
It was amazing then, seeing how the house had been lived in and left by its last owner.
