A large estate with plenty of room to walk and relax. The house was shut (?Covid) but we wouldn't have gone in anyway as we prefer the open air. Catering was average however. OK, but not much selection. We had jacket potato. The salad was...a rather feeble apology for a salad considering they have their own vegetable garden and gladly tell how us the produce is used in their catering.More

The NT haven’t dealt with with COVID. This beautiful house is still mostly closed. You’re herded into little sections but the first floor is closed for some reason as are many of the other sections, and garden areas. Everywhere seems roped off and bossy guides...and woke signs prevent your from enjoying yourself. It’s such a shame that the NT can’t organise themselves better.More

Visiting friends in Bristol and the Sunday was a lovely day we decided on a visit to Tyntesfield House we arrived at 2:30pm the car park was very busy but we managed to find a place and no charge to park, we made our way...to the kiosk to pay the lady was very pleasant she took £36.00 from us for three entries and as we had a dog he would have to be kept on the lead. We made our way down to the house but was very disappointed to find the house closed the doors at 2:15pm we weren’t the only ones few others had gathered and aired the disappointment having travelled to get here, it was a pity when we paid this wasn’t pointed out to us, we had a look in the chapel and walked back to get a cold drink then we left. I’m sure the house would be full of wonderful things to see the gardens were very colourful all in bloom maybe sometime in the future we might make another visit from Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿More

.. but only the first floor. Not sure why - can't be Covid - as we were allowed to mill about downstairs even when following the one-way system. Anyhow, interesting place with some guides giving useful insights.

Don't know why rating is for a restaurant! House closed but did an Easter Egg hunt with granddaughter. Nice walk, plenty to see

Well worth a visit. The architecture is interesting. Some of the original hand painted wall paper can be seen in at least one of the rooms.

The cafe in the old stables is well thought out. Offers lovely cakes and scones all freshly made. Not sure how legal it is not to take cash that is legal tender after all but we are in strange times !

Had been before but this was our first visit during the festive season. Absolutely amazing. People were dressed up for a victorian Christmas and stayed in character throughout. There was Carol singing but we just missed that. Would definitely go agsin

Beautiful grounds. The house is seeped in history. The guides are so knowledgable about the history of the house. It is well worth a visit. Lovely place to eat & a quaint gift shop & secod hand ook shop as well.

The house was a good visit and my family and I were looking forward to a decent lunch. The vegetarian menu was not great but my wife and I settled for leek and potato soup, my daughter for the baked potato with cheese. 20 minutes...later I had to ask if our food was coming; I was assured it was on the way. Another 10 minutes later the food arrived, with apologies from the staff. What I didn’t expect was the hair in the soup. After a further complaint I got a full refund (had to push for this). Poor service and poor food...won’t be going back in a hurry.More
