This is a beautiful autumn walk on the stunning grounds of Tyntesfield House set in the rolling countryside of Somerset.
For me, autumn means beautiful, colourful walks in the countryside, and so I was overjoyed to find exactly this at Tyntesfield House in Somerset (National Trust). I had initially planned a trip with my family to Tyntesfield House because I was lured by photos of their autumn squash display. Yet as fun as it was to see their array of colourful fruit, it was the stunning grounds and majestic house and gardens that took my breath away.
I hope the above photos give you an idea of the beauty there. And so, if you are looking for a beautiful autumn walk, take a ramble throughout the grounds at Tyntesfield House.
Are you planning a trip to Tyntesfield? I would love to hear from you and what you thought of the house and grounds!

Regarding the house: “Visitor numbers will be limited so not all those who book a visit to the property will be able to view the house.” But this autumn walk is so very lovely, it is satisfying in and of itself.
Enjoy the colours, enjoy your walk! :)
