Tyntesfield step-free route

Total steps: 7

Total steps: 7

Start point

Home Farm, Tyntesfield, Wraxall, BS48 1NX, grid ref: ST 50172 71658

Step 1

On arrival to the car park, enter the Home Farm area by visiting the visitor welcome building. There is an accessible toilet and baby change facilities available at Home Farm, under the covered barns in the upper courtyard.

Step 2

Follow the path up to the left, past the Piggery.

Step 3

At the top of the slope, turn right onto the asphalt road. Continue on this road along the drive. You'll pass the path to the Sawmill on your left, and the Chapel and house will be on your right shortly after.

Step 4

When you reach a junction of five paths, known as Fiveways, head straight across, and down the slope. After about 330 yd (300m), you have the option to stop at the Pavilion Café. You will need to double-back on yourself to return to the route and avoid the steps in the Kitchen Garden.

Step 5

At the four-way junction, turn right into the field (along the cobbled path). Where possible, gates will be left open, but where you find a gate closed, please close it behind you, as livestock may be present. Continue through the gate and follow the path up to the front of the house.

Step 6

As you approach the house, take a left turn past the monkey puzzle tree, in front of the steps down the yew walk. About halfway down, take the right-hand path up to the Holly Walk (ahead of the tennis courts).

Step 7

As you reach the Holly Walk, turn left and follow the path to return to Home Farm. Continue through the first gate, through the field, turning left through the final gate and down the slope.

End point
