Visited Dyrham Park on our way back home. It's a National Trust property and Dyrham House itself is under extensive roof repair. This repair job is an attraction in itself. Scaffolding has been put up around the house and over the roof. Access has been provided to the roof by lifts for not only the repairers but also the public.... More

We know Dyrham well, so knew the NT were working on the roof.We went with a less mobile person and had no issues using the lifts and walking around ...at chimney height. Take this chance to see the craftsman at work.

Dyrham Park is undergoing a £3.8million reroof. It would have been easy to close the whole property while this went on. Instead the NT had the foresight to arrange access to see the work actually being carried out. It is the sort of thing that fascinates me but my wife enjoyed it every bit as much. We spent quite some... More

Don't overlook taking a free tour of the park with a ranger in a buggy. It was a great way to get an idea of the extensive grounds as well as seeing the deer. Taking advantage of the bus service to and from the house is also a good idea as it is a hilly, long walk otherwise. Currently the... More

We stopped just for a picnic in the park but were persuaded by a young and most courteous young lady volunteer to visit the roof experience. Simply amazing. You get taken up in a lift (by a young and most courteous gentleman volunteer) and get to walk round the perimeter of the whole house under an amazing scaffolding structure that... More

This is more than just a National Trust property at the moment. If you're into scaffholding, builders, shaky lifts etc this is for you! I only saw a few rooms of the house due to all the work being done, but to be fair they were as good as most other National Trust properties I've seen. What you can see... More

Please take my advice and do not bother visiting whilst the house is undergoing major rennovation work. There is nothing to see apart from a few desultory items on display in dingy surroundings. I feel terribly sorry for the volunteers who have almost nothing to talk about as everything is either covered in dust sheets or packed away. Rooftop experience?... More

Dyrham Park is a fantastic place for all ages. Apart from being a wonderful property in a fantastic setting, the National Trust have enhanced the experience by conducting rooftop tours which show how the roof repairs are progressing. The huge scaffolding is a masterpiece of engineering. It is a truly magical experience to be so high above the roof itself.... More

We wanted to visit Dyrham park to see also a Victorian kitchen. Unfortunateley there were so much building works done (which is great offcourse)that we only could visit one room. The kitchen could not be visited. Although it was nice to see the builders at work. We went up the scaffolding and looked af the work on the roof. That... More

A National Trust property, house and buildings set in large country park. At time of visit house was having major restoration work carried out to entire roof, and cloaked in scaffolding and screening, however bonus was 'Rooftop Tour' by way of perimeter walkway above roof. Fascinating seeing repairs being undertaken to all parts of roof and chimneys. As result of... More
