This is a small country house and will not take long to walk around. A little out of the way but worth it.

We visited on a sweltering hot day and were pleased to find plenty of seating in shady areas. We loved the planting but did feel some parts of the garden needed a little TLC. Refreshments not up to normal National Trust standards.

Spent a lovely afternoon here, staff helpful and friendly. Arrived just as a garden tour was starting, so joined in and found it very informative.

Pretty gardens. Quiet a small site so you can get round it fairly quickly. Highly worth a look. We took our 14 month old. We did manage with the buggy but it’s not ideal and we mainly carried her round. Some nice swings dotted about...More

A lovely visit to Tintinhull. The Manor House has a couple of rooms on the ground floor open for public viewing. However the star attraction is definitely the wonderful gardens. Laid out in distinct areas or “rooms”, they are an absolute delight to wander round....More

In the years since my last visit, I had forgotten that the plantswoman Penelope Hobhouse had lived at Tintinhull for more than a decade. Cues from Hidcote, two and a half hours north, are apparent in the garden design. The 'rooms' are a perfect size...More

Hi Carol, My advice is, always check the National Trust website before a visit. It gives loads of Inf., opening times, prices, things to see & facilities. It says, "Small tea-room serving delicious cakes and cream teas". So... More

Hi Sarah, Dogs are welcome in the courtyard where the small shop and tearoom are but they aren't allowed into the gardens. If you do go you will understand why, but the garden 'rooms' wouldn't be appropriate for visitors... More
