This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

An elegant 17th century house built from local Ham Hill stone that overlooks the most delightful formal garden. Visitors will not only feel like the lord and lady of the manor, they can also enjoy spectacular views out over the network of garden rooms and explore its glories ‘out of hours’. Part of the house has been used to create a four bedroom holiday property which retains much of its original features, such as leaded windows. You can explore the rest of the house during the opening hours. The kitchen is dominated by a huge Aga and an open fire is the centre piece of the sitting room.

Tintinhull Gardens is available as a venue for civil wedding ceremonies. They offer a picturesque setting alongside the intimate Summer House which overlooks the peaceful Pool garden.

No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

    Superb accommodation

    Wonderful location and experience for the whole family. Garden enchanting, house and accommodation superb - welcome excellent. Made our stay enjoyable...The welcome pack and milk in the fridge! The wonderful house and garden itself and the fact we were undisturbed because the property was not open to the public. "Feeling like we were in our own Downton" - the kids.

    Lovely amount of space

    Loved the house & grounds. My mother is a long-standing NT member and my father used to work for the NT so my Mum was delighted to be able to enjoy her 85th birthday at an NT property. Lovely kitchen/diner. Bedrooms good.

    Loved our stay!

    We loved our stay at Tintinhull House as we felt part of History. It was so special being Lord and Lady of the Manor for the week. We were all upset when we had to leave. I don't think we shall ever forget this holiday. The house was beautiful and so were the gardens. We all have disabilities and we found the Gardens to be so tranquil and therapeutic. We were extremely impressed with how clean the house was and we had a Welcome card and a Box of Biscuits from the caretakers which made our holiday so much more special, it made us feel "at home". We had fresh clean towels and clean tea towels too. I myself, and behalf of all my family would like to say Thank you because you have helped us make beautiful memories.

    Access out of hours was amazing!

    Staff and volunteers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. A map of the walking route to Montachute would have been good. Access to the garden out of hours was amazing. The garden is very well looked after.
