Despite living just a 15 minute drive from the National Trust’s Tyntesfield, I can’t remember the last time I visited.
Since purchasing a second hand camera however, I couldn’t wait to get down and take some pictures. Especially in this glorious sunshine we’re (still) having here in the UK.
My day started a little chaotic, as I originally managed to blag a lift off my sister before getting to the entrance of the house and realising I had forgotten my memory card. YAY. I then had to walk the half an hour back home to get it and then walk the half an hour back to Tyntesfield. I was well and truly worn out when I got there (and a bit sweaty), but I got there eventually. And it was very much worth it.
Thankfully the place wasn’t particularly busy, most likely due to the quarter final match England were playing a couple of hours later, so I had a chance to mooch around and explore in peace.
The grounds of the house are absolutely breathtaking, I can’t image what it must be like to live somewhere like this and wake up to incredible views everywhere you look.
One of the major things I love about living near Somerset is the vast amount of National Trust houses there are, which I intend to visit more of as soon as I can drive!
I could imagine two people getting married in front of this archway. So beautiful.
Another little building on the premises. Not sure of it’s functionality but it’s adorable all the same.
Being so close to places like this, yet still being within 10 minutes of the city centre of Bristol is just one of the many reasons I’m so in love with the city. For me I can’t say whether I’m a country or city girl, more somewhere in the middle. I find the outdoors feels so good for my wellbeing, especially on days like this.
This was the view on the walk to Tyntesfield. Behind me was a very steep hill, brutal in 30 degree heat I must say!
I find the countryside so relaxing, and National Trust places are always so wonderful to explore because they are so well kept. Plus there is always lots to learn about their history and the residents. You can find your nearest National Trust places here.
