Notice: From Mon 20 to Fri 24 April we are undertaking some exciting new work in the Cow Barn Kitchen restaurant at the Home Farm Visitor Centre. This work involves the re-modelling of the serving counter and the addition of new facilities. This means that the Cow Barn Kitchen will be closed whilst the work is undertaken. However we will still have a full selection of cakes, soups, scones, sandwiches and drinks available from the Cow Barn Coffee Shop and the Pavilion Café but a limited hot food offer at Home Farm. We are sorry for an inconvenience this may cause but are sure you will enjoy the re-modelled Cow Barn Kitchen.

Spectacular Victorian Gothic Revival house with gardens and parkland

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.

This year we will be opening the house every day, in some way; to showcase the collection and architecture. From March we will be introducing to you in the house and garden, to Antony, the eldest son of Tyntesfield creator William Gibbs. We have represented a number of rooms in the house and have a fascinating series of events which will bring to life this fascinating and influential man and the world around him.

House tickets

From late March we will be introducing you to the Victorian world of Antony Gibbs. An ordinary man with an extraordinary fortune, a man of vast riches but simple pleasures. Antony was the second generation of the Gibbs family to live at Tyntesfield. He epitomised the Victorian age, fascinated by art, technology and travel. Book your timed tickets to visit the house in advance here. Please note that online house ticket sales must be made at least 24 hours before the day you wish to visit.
