Large old NT house surrounded by a deer park, which can be seen from bus which takes you down the hill from car park. Very friendly helpful volunteers in the property. Good cafe for refreshments too, but do not stand too close to the swan on the garden pool, he nibbles your footwear! Very interesting device for turning meat downstairs... More

Lovely day out, impressive house in stunning setting. The Parkland is beautiful, with many fantastic walks. Carpark is quite a distance from the house, the walk back is up hill so unless you are quite fit its better to wait for the courtesy bus, runs regularly between carpark and house. The gardens surrounding the well worth a visit, plenty of... More

Visited a couple of weekends ago and the scenery and house were simply beautiful! We did the longer walk around the park and we're lucky to see the fallow deer mums and youngsters quite close up! The house is lovely to walk around and the church is gorgeous, really bright and airy inside - with a lot of exhibits concerning... More

We went to the National Trust Cafe of Dyrham Park (after a walk around the grounds, which was lovely) and we were really disappointed with this cafe. I ordered a carrot and coriander soup, which was astonishingly almost £5 (my friend paid the same and got a very large tuna jacket with coleslaw and salad). We waited a very long... More

Visited on a lovely September day which helped with appreciating the beautiful parkland and grounds. The bus doesn't run between 1 and 1.30 as its lunch break so we walked down the hill through the parkland seeing a few deer and cows on the way. Nice house with some interesting items which you can get round in about 20-30 mins.... More

Dyhram Park is a National Trust property and the grounds are open every day of the year but the house and gardens are sometimes closed. Best to check before travelling. The NT often put on events / concerts during the summer at Dyhram. We often spend Sunday mornings enjoying the grounds and gardens but having seen the house once we... More

A wonderful House and grounds, the house from the outside looks rather like Chatsworth, there is a small bus to take you from the car park down to the house, this is really needed if not able to do a lot of walking, once at the house you step back in time, but be warned there are rather a lot...

We stopped of here for a couple of hours which was enough time to do justice to the house, but if you have the time, there are acres of lovely parkland to discover, with some wonderful views. The house itself has a great history, with some artifacts to match. If you are at all interested in the late 1600's to... More

Pretty much what one expects form a National Trust visit - lovely gardens and parkland, with deer roaming, nice (but rather pricy) tea shop for lunch etc, and some very interesting features in the house. Well worth a visit/

On arrival you have a choice of a short walk down hill or a long walk where you are more likely to see the deer or to use the shuttle bus. If you are not in a hurry i would recommend the long walk down but the shuttle bus back up as it is steeper to walk than you think.... More
