Well worth visiting whilst the roof tours are still on. Get a very different experience from the usual visit. The walk around the deer park is good. We saw lots of deers.

We visited Dyrham with friends recently, fully aware that it would be covered in scaffolding. This is not a problem because its setting continues to inspire and you can inspect the roof works for yourself. The best thing we did though was to take a tour with one of the volunteer guides of the 'forgotten terraces' - this was brilliant... More

Even though major restoration work underway on replacing roof, plenty to see and do. Although car park quite full, café was the quietest we had ever seen it. Grounds kept immaculately as usual, but lake a bit murky. No sign of any deer this visit. Great place to visit.

I Didn't know what to expect as we walked past Neptune who appeared to have lost his Trident and down to Dyrham Park. The building completely covered in Scaffold. However needn't have worried. We quickly headed to the Roof Walk (Try to get there early as its quiet and you have more time and space to enjoy) It was quite... More

Don't let the fact that the building is encased in scaffolding at the moment for much-needed repairs, there is still enough to see to make the trip worthwhile. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil, and the house is situated in a picturesque setting in between tall hills. I'd love to re-visit when all the work is completed.

I love Dyrham park! I have visited several times, even applied for a job here (sadly the shifts weren't right for my family, gutted!) I could happily visit every day and not be bored. Firstly you have stunning fields, with a large herd of deer, and also cattle! My kids love the barn play area, a nice little picnic area... More

Was very impressed with the children's play area. A lot of time and effort has been put in to create a special area for the young kids to play in. We also enjoyed the roof top walk. A great couple of hours visit even in the English summer rain !

We stopped here on the way home from Frome, as you can always rely on the food at National Trust properties. Before we arrived we knew that work was being undertaken and the helpful lady at the ticket office made sure we knew what to expect to avoid disappointment. All I can say is the rooftop walk is a must.... More

The entire roof is being replaced, you can take the lift up (or go by stairs) to see the new roof being installed. The views are stunning, you won't be able to go up there once the roof is finished later this year, What's exciting is you could be part of the building's future by signing one of the roof... More

the house is a building site except for four small dark rooms. the collection is stored but closed over lunch time. Why?-the Trust has workers selling raffle tickets all day nearby. The gardens are fine so buy a ticket for them only. Far better value and quality of house and gardens is Corsham Court, half an hour away.The Nat Trust... More
