Tyntesfield is beautiful in winter

From glasshouses to gazebos...

Nestled among woodland with sweeping views over rolling parkland and the Yeo valley, our gardens are full of character.

Be inspired on the terraces in the formal garden, discover the romantic gazebos in the rose garden, pick up ideas for growing your own in the kitchen garden, or take a walk through the arboretum, 'Paradise'.

Formal gardens

    Croquet o'clock

    Take the Broad Walk and spot the pristine croquet lawn. In summer, sets are available to hire.

Rose garden

Meet the friendly stone lions that guard the entrance to the rose garden. Follow criss-crossing paths through the maze-like box hedges before taking a seat in one of the gazebos.

Kitchen garden

Surround yourself with red brick walls, glasshouses and potting sheds in the kitchen garden. Look out for the produce table and choose from a range of freshly picked items for sale.

Paradise

Paradise after snow

Spot exotic trees planted from the far corners of the Empire. Richard, the last member of the Gibbs family to live at Tyntesfield, continued this popular Victorian pastime in the second half of the 20th century.

Orangery

See the newly restored Orangery

Home of unusual plants and exciting events. The conservation of this classical building is nearly complete, with thanks to Nimbus conservation and stone masonry students of City of Bath College.

Fresh produce

Each day, our team of gardeners and volunteers pick fresh produce and deliver it to the Cow Barn kitchen. Our chef then works his magic and cooks this up into delicious seasonal dishes for you to eat.
