There’s space to sprawl out and picnic on the lawn, roses to roam amongst, fruit and vegetables growing in the kitchen garden and a chance to taste them in one of the dishes from the two on-site cafés.

On rainy days, why not go on a welly walk and splash in puddles, or shelter in the house and learn more about the objects, countries and adventures that inspired Tyntesfield’s founder, William Gibbs, on the Hispanic explorer’s trail? Be sure to spot the llamas as you wander around or try a bit of dressing up in the garden porch. There are regular family craft and storytelling sessions to book on to, plus TYNTEfest – a festival for toddlers and their grown ups.

Run riot in one of the four play areas, check off some of the 50 things to do before you’re 11¾, and make memories that last a lifetime at Tyntesfield this summer.
