Which areas to visit this Spring

The south terrace at Tyntesfield

With more people able to get outside in Spring, we are really excited to welcome visitors to Tyntesfield. Sometimes, though, we all need to escape to a quiet corner of beauty to recharge. Here are some of the more peaceful areas of the garden where you can find a nice spot to relax.

The best time for peace and quiet

With Spring bringing warmer days and hopefully sunshine, we are expecting more visitors to come and enjoy the grounds at Tyntesfield. If you are looking to escape into nature, we have the perfect spaces for you listed in our spring highlights below. You may also wish to consider visiting after 2pm as the late afternoon is usually quieter.

Tyntesfield terraces

The terraces

With thousands of seeds planted every year, it's a surprise for visitors as to what will be on display in the formal terraces this year. Spot the cross shaped design, reflective of the Gibbs family's dedication to their faith.

The woodland

As well as bluebells and spring buds, the woodland offers a great opportunity for spotting spring fungi.

Crocus growing in spring


Feeling every bit its name, the peaceful western part of the formal garden sees a scattering of spring bulbs, from crocuses and daffodils to the annual carpet of wild garlic.

Tyntesfield Kitchen Garden

The Kitchen Garden

There's plenty of activity in the Kitchen Garden during spring, including lettuces, leeks and onions growing.
