Tyntesfield

Wraxall, Bristol, North Somerset BS48 1NX

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 we open doors and change perspectives on this much loved family estate.

Eating and shopping: relax in our converted cow barn with dishes made from estate-grown ingredients. The Home Farm Visitor Centre also offers large shop with plant sales, local products and a second hand bookshop. Light bites can be found in the Pavilion Cafe.
