Tyntesfield National Trust (Open Everyday except Christmas Day)
Sunday 1st January to Monday 31st December 2012
For the first time ever Tyntesfield’s gardens & estate will be open every day of the year (except Christmas day).
You can now enjoy Tyntesfield’s glorious outdoors more often than ever before as this year the National Trust gardens, estate, shop and restaurant will be open every day of the year (except Christmas Day) for the first time.
Like many National Trust properties the main house needs a rest over winter to carry out conservation work and protect its precious interiors from wear and tear but the 500 acres of beautiful North Somerset countryside, gardens, parkland and woodland in which it sits, is open for all to enjoy, all year round.
Paul Evans, Tyntesfield’s Head Gardener says ‘On a crisp winter’s day the gardens can look every bit as beautiful as during the summer. Winter is also equally as busy for us gardeners so visitors will see lots of activity including efforts to keep produce growing for the restaurant in our walled kitchen garden.’
For those who love an invigorating winter walk four new 1-mile walks around Tyntesfield are downloadable from the website. For families a kids’ play trail map inspired by memories of children who used to live on the estate gives ideas for letting off steam or choose from one of the many events held all year round.
Estate: 10am to 5pm
Garden: 10am to 5pm
