Things to see & do
House and chapel
Discover a family home lived in by four generations of the Gibbs family, all making their mark and never throwing anything away. Follow the family’s rise and gentle decline, and find out why we saved Tyntesfield.
Nestled at the bottom of the estate our kitchen garden has been in production since it was built in the 1890s and is a hidden gem. Admire the gardener's skills and pick up some fruit, veg or flowers to take home.
Garden and woodland
Discover a beautiful garden filled with history. Be inspired by lush green lawns and flower-filled borders, and admire magnificent trees in the arboretum. Escape further afield and walk into wild woodland landscapes with views to take your breath away. Open all year round.
Lovely local food
The menus at The Cow Barn are inspired by local suppliers and seasonal produce. Virtually everything has been sourced locally and cooked with love by our chefs. Our menus constantly change depending on the day’s pickings from our kitchen garden and what comes in from our suppliers.
From books to bird feeders our shop is full of lovely things - great for presents or simply a treat for yourself. Head outside and be tempted by our plants, garden equipment and furniture.
