Find out everything you need to know about making a group booking here.
Make the most of National Trust places in South Somerset
If you’d like to make a day of it, why not visit a couple of the other nearby places in South Somerset? Montacute House, Barrington Court and Lytes Cary Manor are all within a 25-minute drive.
Who is eligible for free entry?
Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.
Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
Please be aware that Farm Street leading to Tintinhull Garden is narrow and very difficult to turn around or reverse in if you arrive by coach.
There is no coach parking, so we recommend dropping passengers off at the bottom of Farm Street and parking at nearby Cartgate roundabout (a five-minute drive). It is roughly a 150m walk along Farm Street to Tintinhull Garden entrance.
If you have any questions about accessibility, please contact us directly on 01458 224471. The car park is 150m from Reception and only accessible for cars and smaller coaches.

Access and assistance dogs
Most of the paths are uneven around the site and there are steps. It is not possible to use a wheelchair throughout the entire site, especially in the orchard and arboretum.
There are ramps available where we are able to provide them, and there is a wheelchair-accessible toilet.
Assistance dogs are welcome in the garden.
