Our visit to Tyntesfield

Another National Trust property on our agenda for our recent trip. 


This house very different from the one in the previous post - we could see it for one thing - What no scaffolding!!



A lovely approach to the building, but in fact the main entrance was
on the other side, which I'll get to showing you later.

First, and as you approach the building there's this little
summer house on the left. You can just see it in the above photo




The house has it's own Chapel...





here's a close-up of the detailing on the building...


and finally made my way round to the main entrance...





Although there was a lot to see inside, I didn't take much in the way of
photos.  For one thing photos are restricted to non-flash photography but
there is always another visit - meanwhile I did like the hallway and staircase in the photo above and 
this gorgeous window in the photos below...





After all this, it was good to stop and
do some sketching of the outbuildings...







then back to the car...through this unusual gate...



You might have wondered where was William during all this....

Dogs aren't allowed around the formal gardens, so he was
taken for his walk around the parkland on the estate....

yes, you guessed it, that will be another post!

  1. Funny to think of that as a "house". Beautiful architectural detail. I really loved the summer house. Glass it in and wouldn't it make a great art studio?
