A different view of a National Trust Property

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... read 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...

We are Members of the National Trust an I have been to Dyrham Park many times. I love this old place because it is a lovely escape from the city and an opportunity to have a little walk. Although it is an interesting building and the trust do allot to cater for the whole family which they do well I... More

We took our 5 & 2 ½ Y.O daughters here on a wet Sunday and had a great time. We have been several times before and no trip has been the same. We love: Scenic walks in deer park, trails, running down the steep hills (not walking up steep hill), gardens to explore, old farm buildings with tractors to climb... More

Visited on Saturday (opening day). House disappointing as only a couple of rooms open to view, so not worth long journey and special visit. NT staff welcoming at entrance. Grounds and views lovely and may look great when in full bloom. Deer around the grounds. Luckily it was a nice day so we could walk around grounds as not much... 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.
