Play at Tyntesfield

Woodland play area at Tyntesfield

With four fantastic play areas for families to enjoy, there is something for everyone. Race through a child sized chicken coop in The Farm, test your balancing skills in The Orchard or explore inside a giant guano bird and enchanted tree house in our brand new woodland adventure play and sculpture trail.

Woodland adventure play and sculpture trail

From an enchanted tree house and rope swing to a giant guano bird and its nest, this new adventure play trail with its creative sculptures scattered along the way is a must for the most intrepid explorers.

For those that like to get their hands dirty we have a den building village, with plenty of sticks to create your very own woodland fortress. You will also find brass rubbings on the trail, so take some paper and pencils in your survival kit to create a rubbing at each plaque you find.

Orchard play area

Test your balancing skills with stepping stone and boulders, balance logs and beams, giant apple crates and parallel ropes, or maybe catch a ride on our well-loved tractor or our larger-than-life wildlife.

This play area is right next to the Pavilion cafe, so Mum, Dad and Granny can sit back with a cup of tea while the kids play.

The Farm play area

Situated in the upper courtyard at Home Farm, this play area is already a favourite with our family visitors.

With our big tractor and brand new play barns, there's lots of fun to be had riding, climbing and sliding.

Cow Barn restaurant play area

This small, indoor play area is especially for our youngest visitors, helping to keep them entertained while you relax in one of our comfy chairs with a cuppa and some cake (we recommend the brownie!)

A whole estate to explore

Outside of our play areas, there's a whole estate, hardly changed in the last hundred years, for you to explore...
