Spectacular Victorian Gothic Revival house with gardens and parkland
Tyntesfield, just a stone’s throw away from Bristol, was not built as a bold and extravagant statement of wealth, power or politics. Its purpose was simple; to serve as a family home. Once hidden and inaccessible, the ordinary and extraordinary lives and possessions of four generations of the Gibbs family are ready for discovery.
The garden and estate balance faded beauty and function with an abundance of nature; celebrated in ornate Gothic carvings that decorate the house. Flower filled terraces, an empty lake, woodland, champion trees and productive kitchen garden give further opportunities for exploration. With each season you will experience a new side to Tyntesfield as we open doors and change perspectives on this much loved family estate.
This year we will be opening the house every day, in some way; to showcase the collection and architecture. From March we will be introducing to you in the house and garden, to Antony, the eldest son of Tyntesfield creator William Gibbs. We have represented a number of rooms in the house and have a fascinating series of events which will bring to life this fascinating and influential man and the world around him.
