Yesterday we went to Tyntesfield which is a large Victorian house and estate owned by the National Trust, and it’s very close to where we live……we’ve walked around the grounds before, but yesterday was the first day of this year that the house is open, so we went for a look around :)
The house looks really nice from the outside with its gothic styling, and it even has its own chapel connected at the first floor level ;>.>
From the house you can see across the Somerset fields, which is where the family made their fortune selling fertiliser.
The house has various grand statement rooms, as well as the more functional rooms such as the kitchen that you can see if you go for a visit now :)
The main entrance hallway where guests would’ve arrived into the house is really impressive with the staircase circling the space.
It seems quite unusual for a house to have its own attached chapel like this one, but we were told the family was very religious….although the chapel was never officially consecrated.
It’s a very impressive house overall…..but I find that quite a funny thing, since technically it was mostly funded by poo ^_^;
