Not many words this evening, folks. I’ve had a pretty tiring day but I’m all tucked up on the sofa watching Autumnwatch by myself
like a loser while Tom is at a gig.
Whilst looking at all the cute fluffy animals and autumnal scenes on the telly it reminded me of my trip t’other day, when I took myself down to Tyntesfield for a little wander about.
It was my first time visiting Tyntesfield, which is pretty surprising considering that I’m a bit of a closet history nerd, and nothing excites me more than the thought of a warm October afternoon wondering around a Victorian stately home, especially if there’s a cup of tea and a slice of cake at the end.
The house itself is absolutely stunning, having been lovingly restored by the National Trust since they took over the occupation of the house in 2002. Whilst I was there they were starting to set up the rooms for Christmas, and I can only imagine how magical this place looks when decked out in its festive finery.
If you’re not bothered about crumbly old Victorian houses [insert disapproving look here] you can pay a bit less and have a lovely wander in the vast gardens and parkland surrounding the house.
Perfec’ for an autumnal stroll while the leaves are still crunchy!
Any more historical houses in the Bristol area I need to check off my list?
