July visit to Tyntesfield

Tyntesfield, is one of those National Trust properties that provide an excellent day’s visit.

The Victorian Gothic mansion retains the feel of a country estate with its magnificent reception rooms and (always fascinating) kitchen. It also houses an ornately decorated chapel.

Extensive tree planting now provides a framework of mature trees both native and exotic. The walled garden for cut flowers, fruit and vegetables is located some distance from the mansion. With its working greenhouses, potting sheds and tool sheds it gives some insight to the workings of a country estate.
