The estate at Tyntesfield is still grazed by cattle, providing the traditional parkland setting typical of country houses in the 18th and 19th centuries. The parkland was probably created when Tyntesfield was first built around 1820.

From the ticket office, follow the path for 55 yards (50 metres) and enter the field on your right via the small gate. Make for the wooden gate about 82 yards (75 metres) in front of you.
Continue down the field, leaving the woodland on your left, until it opens out into a larger field.
Turn left and head for a group of four trees. This is Luccombe Oaks, the site of some old farm buildings removed in the 1850s.
Follow the ha-ha (a sunken fence) until you reach the stone path crossing the field. At the start of the ha-ha look out for the remains of an old trolley. This was part of an old tramway which crossed the field to take rubbish to the compost heaps at the kitchen garden.
Follow the stone path to the drive then turn left, following the drive up the hill. There are several interesting trees along here.
At the crossroads continue uphill past the chapel, the sawmill and the Chaplain's House and Lodge.
At the crossroads take the track immediately on your left back to the start.
