Tintinhull Manor and Gardens
Tintinhull Manor and Gardens

Tintinhull Gardens are a series of formal Arts and Crafts style arrangements set around a very attractive 17th-century manor house. The gardens themselves are not contemporary with the manor; all but the Eagle Garden were designed by Mrs Phyllis Reiss between the years 1933-61. The Eagle Garden may be a product of the 18th century.

There are several garden rooms, or areas to explore, set within clipped hedges and stone walls. Among these are the water garden, azalea garden, white garden, several lawned areas, and a kitchen garden. The gardens are formal, with attractive borders and several water features. Close to the manor is a small area of topiary.

We found Tintinhull to be a very lovely place to visit; very peaceful, and the gardens, though small, were extremely attractive, and seemed to invite contemplation. We rate Tintinhull well worth a visit. take a look at our photo gallery to get a better idea of just how attractive the gardens are.

The main parking area for the manor is located in a field a few hundred yards away, on the far side of a small orchard. In wet weather, the path to the house can be muddy, so good footgear is advisable.

There is minimal access to the manor itself; visitors pass through one or two small rooms to reach the gardens, but though the rooms are of passing interest, it is the gardens that are the main feature of Tintinhull.

The village of Tintinhull itself is worth a stroll; it is a lovely, peaceful place with a very nice pub almost opposite the manor.
