Visiting Tyntesfield this winter

Visitors sitting on a bench in winter

With 540 acres of garden, parkland and woodland, Tyntesfield offers a varied landscape to embrace the winter weather in.

Be it a weekday outing or or half-term holidays, there's no reason not to get out, about and involved at Tyntesfield over the winter months. 

If you're a keen walker, there's walks across the estate, and with two cafes on site, you're never too far from a warming cuppa.
