Spectacular Victorian Gothic Revival house with gardens and parkland

A fine Victorian country house created by one of England’s richest commoners, William Gibbs, who built his fortune on fertiliser.

Spiralling turrets and pinnacles adorn the roof, ornate stone carvings and church-like windows complete the Gothic look, giving the feel of a mysterious, fairytale mansion. Terraced lawns give way to spacious parkland scattered with hundreds of trees collected by the family, and a glorious walled kitchen garden beyond.

Four generations of the Gibbs family called Tyntesfield home, filling it with both the splendid and the ordinary – from fine porcelain and fabulous textiles, to picnic sets and ice skates.

Unusually for a stately home this one displays its wears and tears and that's what makes Tyntesfield truly unique. Come and see the progress that has been made on this groundbreaking  restoration project. The house now has a new roof, is free of scaffolding and our new Home Farm Visitor Centre is open  - try out our new shop, Cow Barn restaurant, interactive wildlife hub and garden shop.

The estate and gardens are open every day but the house is closed on Thursdays and Fridays.

Please note: At weekends and during busy periods access to the house is by timed ticket. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
