Tyntesfield House Bristol

About

At its heart Tyntesfield is a Victorian country house and estate, which serves as a backdrop to the remarkable story of four generations of the Gibbs family. Their tale charts the accumulation of wealth from the guano trade, transformation of a Georgian house to a Victorian Gothic masterpiece and the collection of over 50,000 objects.

Their achievements are celebrated through ornate Gothic carvings, flower-filled terraces and an expansive estate amid the Somerset countryside. With each visit you'll experience a new side of Tyntesfield, as they close one door and open another.

Kids activities

For young explorers we have three play areas; including a woodland adventure and sculpture trail. Packed activities programme including open air theatre, food and craft markets (first Sunday of each month April to November) and living history.

The Cow Barn

Eating and shopping: The Cow Barn in the Home Farm visitor centre offers year-round homemade dishes using estate-grown ingredients. Shop with plant sales, second-hand bookshop and small play area. For light bites while exploring, try the Pavilion Café.

Prior's Wood Nature Reserve

Nearby Prior's Wood Nature Reserve was once part of the Tyntesfield Estate and is the ideal place for getting away from the busy city.
