Staying at Chaplain's House in Tyntesfield is a wonderful Victorian break, with typical decorations of dark painted wood and Victorian wallpapers and Victorian furniture. The property is in the National Trust Tyntesfield estate and has views over the garden, as well as having a lovely private garden with the House. Built in the 1890s in Gothic revival style as the residence for the Gibbs family chaplain, it is a spacious house with wonderful dining room with double aspect, and sitting room with an open fireplace. The kitchen is downstairs, and there are three bedrooms, one on the ground floor which means it can be used by the disabled, and two more large bedrooms upstairs with bathroom. Many of the rooms have original fireplaces and the house has been recently restored, along with the Chaplain's Lodge next door. If the two are rented together then parties of 11 can stay here using an interconnecting corridor.

It is lovely to have the Tyntesfield estate to yourself in the early morning and evening, wandering in the park and gardens. A very quiet location, with plenty of space in the house and I would recommend staying here.
