This is a beautiful National Trust place. I've visited with family and with friends and it's a really enjoyable day out. The house has so many different things to view inside, it's well worth a return visit because you're bound to miss things!

Great views on arrival. Very friendly welcome. The park is great and you can wonder to your heart's content. I would recommend the deer feeding and the bat walks which are organised throughout the year. Great for adults and children alike. Beautiful gardens and the house is also very interesting. The cafe has some very good food and the shop... More

Now ended we enjoyed a birds eye view via the scaffolding in place as the building repaired. Still will come again, lots of enthusiastic guides, appreciate the bus ride from car park to house and back up hill at end! Cafe reasonable price too.

Excellent grounds well maintained. No idea of price as national trust member. Excellent tea room with great hot chocolate. Reasonably priced shop. House closed due to ongoing roof repairs

Nothing to see. Everything was closed including the gardens due to weather but was still charged full price before disclosing this information. Managed to be in and out in 20 mins. Disappointing.

A lot of renovation work at present. I'd swerve this until they're completed. It's not a lot of money to get in but you have to walk a long way from car park or wait for shuttle and i doubt you'd pay to see a building site and then be back within 18 months to see it finished. That said,... More

Sorry you feel this way, while we had to close four rooms in the house due to re-roofing project, we did create three new areas in the house - one which includes some of the highlights of the collection. We'll be re-opening more areas of the house in March. Please check our website to find out more about this if... More

We came here to see the roof renovations before the scaffolding came down. The visit was more interesting than I expected, and the roof guides are very knowledgable. We also wandered the grounds and visited the few rooms of the house that were open. I'm not sure I'd think it was good value for money if I'd paid for entry... More

Thank you for your feedback - unfortunately we were forced to close some of the rooms on the upper floors due to the re-roofing project, but we did work hard to offer an alternative, including Mr Blathwayt's apartment, which houses some of the highlights of the collection. The rest of the house comprised a Collections store area, where you could... More

I love it at Dyrham so couldn't miss the Roof Experience. How clever of the National Trust to open it up to the public. Got to see the Eagle on the roof up close. I cant wait to go back in the spring when the gardens are done.

Thank you for your feedback. The garden project is a five year plan, so it'll be changing all the time. Looking forward to seeing you again in the Spring. More
