This is a great place to visit. The gardens are fantastic and the house is very nice. If you are lucky you will see the deer while you are there. I would recommend bringing a picnic or your own food at least.

Had a Easter break to Bath and found this National Trust place on our way home, well worth a visit, 17th century mansion house, not fully open as the whole roof is under renovation and will not be fully completed till next year, but there are various rooms set out with furniture and items from the house to view, set...

This was my second vist to Dyrham Park and we had an excellent day. Our 2 year old boy had great fun in the play area climbing on beams and logs as well as playing on the real and toy tractors. Being easter Sunday it was very busy and the only downside was the queue for baby changing. Maybe they... More

There is so much to like at Dyrham Park from the open rolling hills where you can walk for several miles, to the Dyrham House ( currently undergoing renovation but there are rooms open) to the delightful Tea Gardens. This is essential England, the stunning lovely St Peters Church sits next to Dyrham House, the terraced gardens are a delight... More

Staff could not have been more helpful. Went on the free garden tour and had a fascinating account of the history and the trust's approach to the garden restoration. Also did the tour of the house artefacts in store during the reroofing which again gives a great insight into the problems of managing conservation in an historic building. The sampling... More

Despite having been members for many years this was our first visit to Dyrham and despite the fact that the roof was being done this was one of the best visits to a property we have had. All the volunteers were very helpful and informative and we managed to catch a guided tour of the storage areas which was superb.... More

This is a wonderful NT estate to visit.....normally. But now and for the next 12 months the house is covered in scaffolding for major roof repairs. So if you want to see the majority of the house and its rooms don't go until the work has been completed. The gardens, extensive grounds, café and shop are all still functioning though.... More

As there are major roof repairs underway there are only a few rooms open in the normal way and these have very low light levels. But there is also the opportunity to see how things are stored and looked after in these circumstances, which is very interesting. The room guides here are interesting to talk to and can explain a...

I visited with two children aged 11 and 8 after taking out NT membership. The day was bright and sunny so ideal for walking and playing outside. The grounds are huge, it even offers a bus ride back to the car park, though we didn't use that. We only covered half the grounds, we saw deer, kids played on the... More

I really love the National Trust but Dyrham Park really didn't do it for me. £12 each for me and my mum to see the house, which included a measly 6 rooms which were all ridiculously dark (I know they have to preserve the interiors of the houses, but this is the worst lighting I've seen in this type of...
