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

Been here several times with family. Try to walk down if possible as the way the setting opens up is breathtaking. If you are looking for deer try heading away from the estate road in either direction. There are several valleys and hollows they prefer. The gardens are pretty and can get busy. The house is well laid out too.... More

The team of gardeners have earned their reputation here and have maintained their high standards. Butterflies love the Flower Borders (I counted 6 different varieties) If you can manage the 15 minute walk to the house the panoramic view of the House and Estate are worth the effort, if not take the FREE SHUTTLE BUS . The House is in... More

Just came back from visiting, on our way back from the Cotswolds. Very interesting house. The restaurant was below par, staff clearing up and wiping down our table whilst we were still eating, which was off putting. We felt they just wanted to rush us through which is not like other National Trust restaurants.
