Notice: Tyntesfield closed on 11th July 2015 Subject to weather, North Somerset Council are undertaking surface dressing works on the B3128 Clevedon Road. This is the main road which provides access to Tyntesfield. As a result of this road closure we have decided to close Tyntesfield for the day. Information about the programme of road closures around Tyntesfield can be found at www.n-somerset.gov.uk. We are of course disappointed to be closing but feel that for the safety of all road users and visitors to Tyntesfield, re-routing cars through the estate from the B3130 to our car park, would not provide a great visitor experience. We may not know until the day before whether or not the Council will decide if the weather is good enough to proceed. Up to date information can be found on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
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.
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.
Spend time browsing for some much needed retail therapy. Our extensive range includes books to jams, the great outdoors and plants. Maybe treat yourself, or buy a gift for that someone special.
