A wander around Tyntesfield

We went to Tyntesfield for a wander around in late April. I can't believe how long it's taken me to look at these photos, but hey, that's the joy of trying to sell a house.

Tyntesfield is a National Trust property between Bristol and Clevedon, it was bought by the National Trust in 2002 and since then they've been working on it's renovation. We thought that a nice spring day was a good excuse for a wander round, particularly as it has a restaurant well-known for its cream teas. As the photographs probably indicate, the gardens were pleasant to walk around, but the house less interesting, being the remnants of what the previous owners didn't want and being too modern to be of any real historical interest.

If you're in the area it's perfect if you want somewhere to walk around with a few things to look at. Oh, and the cream tea deserves its reputation. That was eaten before I had a chance to photograph it!
