Fascinating National Trust House and Parkland.

Had never heard of this place before booking a day coach excursion from our local area, and found the 3 and a half hours or so we had wasn't nearly enough to do it justice. I... read more

Had never heard of this place before booking a day coach excursion from our local area, and found the 3 and a half hours or so we had wasn't nearly enough to do it justice. I recall it was schools' half term and the car park was horribly overcrowded. Due to inconsiderate car owners it was impossible for our coach... More

We enjoy visiting this park with our grandchildren...the views are great and it is good to see the deer. As other reviews have said the Tearooms are too small for the size of the property. The bus back to the carparking is a bonus as it is quite a steep walk back up the hill. One negative point...the website mentions... More

This is my local NT place. The park is always open, the place is tranquil & vast. The house is interesting & changing. There are often events on & always something to do.

This is a super house set in a valley within a deer park. It has Capability Brown gardens with water features. The house is lovely and there is plenty of it on show to the visitor.

A great day out with the family (ours ranged from 4yrs to 70 yrs) enjoyed by us all. The house, the gardens, the church and the Deer all worth a visit. Well done National Trust for maintaining this lovely house and piece of history.

Over 2 years ago I wrote a review for Dyrham and I'm still getting helpful votes.so I have decided to do an update. I think it's because people who have dogs find it useful. Most of my review was about their lack of tolerance towards people bringing dogs to the estate. Don't bother to go there if you want to... More

Beautiful park! Perfect for walks with children - very nice (new) play yard for kids and unique wood carvings. Came past two flocks of deer walking freely in the park. From the view point at the end of the park, you can see the Bristol plane and even as far as Wales. Only a pity that the cars on the... More

It's clear from the NT website that the house and gardens are closed at present. What is not mentioned is that the children's farm play area is also closed. It would have been nice to know - we had two very disappointed children on a recent visit. We've had several pleasant days here in the past but it's probably best... More

Dyrham Park is 270 acres of parkland with a main house, trails, orangery, gardens, picnic area, church, tea room, shop, roaming deer and children's area. There is quite a walk to get to the house, but during our visit they were holding a Halloween trail, which was very popular and made the walk interesting. The grounds are very impressive with...
