“Tyntesfield House (National Trust) 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. There is a glorious walled kitchen garden. Terraced lawns give way to spacious parkland scattered with hundreds of trees collected by the family. Location: Wraxal, Nr Bristol -25 minutes 10 miles.
