We have just recently become national trust members and with a free Sunday without our little girl we thought we would see what the national trust could offer us, living in Bristol and having pasted it many times we thought we would pay a visit to Dyrham park we arrived at 10:15 not long after opening time and were greeted...

Every thing was well presented but nothing was outstanding. The walk down to the hall was enjoyable. The bus would be essential for less mobile visitors - well done for proving that

Up to the National Trust's typical very high standards. Well signed off the A46. Minibus to take you from the car park down to the house if for any reason you want to avoid the walk through the park to the house. Excellent information boards in each room with knowledgeable staff. Very well laid out. If you're a pianist you... More

We had only visited Dyrham once and that was a few years ago, and decided to go back to see how it had changed. The grounds are spectacular and its worth taking the long walk down to the house that takes in the hill fort and the views over the Severn Valley. If you are lucky, as we were, you'll... More

Once you've walked down from the car park to the house, which is about a 20 minute walk, you certainly aren't disappointed. There is a shuttle bus which travels every 10-15 minutes which takes you from the car park to the house. The guides that are in different rooms throughout the house are very knowledgeable, I would certainly recommend anyone... More

Wonderful view of the house if you walk down from the car park. It is a large estate with wonderful walks. The house itself is beautifully furnished and there are some great paintings and Flemish tapestries. The metal statue on top of Dyrham Park looks very much like the work of Cellini, a Florentine silversmith, the guides asked around and... More

We walked around the perimeter of dyrham Park, very quiet also caught a glimpse of deer. We started on the green route, fabulous views as far as the Clifton suspension bridges, called in at the cafe then followed the blue route back to the car park, it helped that it was a beautiful clear day. There is a bus from... More

And the house and garden were well worth a visit too! We went on a lovely sunny day and walked around the park for a long time without even seeing the house which is hidden in the valley. The views were magnificent-right across to Wales and we saw herds of deer. The house itself was interesting and the guides very... More

we went without too much expectation, one of our party was in a small mobility scooter so we knew that their visit would be compromised, but to our delight the room attendants were so helpful and caring that although she couldn't see the top floors a folder had been prepared for such occasions, an amazing place to visit

We called in at Dyrham en-route to our holiday base in Somerset. What a delight. The courtesy bus takes you to the house which is quite a long downhill walk away from the car park. We walked down to the house and saw deer on the way which was lovely. The gardens are beautiful and very easy to get round... More
