Tyntesfield, Somerset

We have had a fair amount of cloud and rain recently, but as today promised several hours of sun we took a chance and set off for Tyntesfield, a National Trust property in Somerset - a Victorian Gothic Revival house, with gardens and parkland.

I attempted a pencil sketch of the Orangery, but got completely lost with proportions and detail, so resorted to finishing it off at home using my photo reference.

A good day out, but we didn't have time to take in all the areas of interest around the estate.  Definitely worth another visit later in the year when the gardens are filled with flowers.
