Spent a lovely early spring afternoon at Dyrham Park. Fascinating house and contents with helpful and knowledgeable volunteers on hand to answer queries. Interesting to learn that prior to the government of the day stepping in to buy the house and contents as a memorial to those who died in the Second World War, the owner intended to demolish it...

If you want space, with the occasional herd of deer, then this is an excellent place to visit, A tip, if you are walking down to the house, avoid the crowds and take the (blue) left hand path. It so often has some magnificent antlered deer and is an easy walk, the crowds walk down the centre or take the... More

We visited here as NT members on the first remotely sunny day for weeks, and it was fabulous. The recent bad weather meant that lots of the area was muddy, but there were plenty of dry paths to use, and we were all dressed for the muddiness. The kids (9 & 7) had an amazing time, exploring the woods, playing... More

For me, the best part of Dyrham Park is the quite simply the park. The grounds are extraordinarily simple, but stunningly beautiful, with deer roaming freely. They don't seem to have too much fear of humans - we could get close enough to see them in detail - and there are hundreds of them. The gardens of the house are... More

Not to be missed! A beautiful deer park leads down to an amazing house. There is a regular free bus with disabled access to take you down to the house if you are not so good on your feet. The house is a gem with beautifully furnished rooms. There are stairs and if you have limited mobility you may have... More

Ample car parking and bus to the house is very good. We both struggle with mobility so the regular bus service made a visit to the house possible. There are quite a few steps and more notice on how to avoid them or perhaps a video on what you are missing would be helpful. The tour around the house was... More

A large and beautiful park surrounding more formal house and gardens, great for a day out. We were pleased to note the "no hassle" approach to entering the park, parking the car and checking National Trust membership (or paying). We took a long (well-marked) walk round to the house, and so enjoyed a number of the views (some are amazing,... More

A really lovely place to visit, the grounds are lovely and well kept. The house is truly beautiful. So relaxing to stroll around the gardens and just sit and enjoy the beauty. Yes it's a long way down from the car park but the bus runs up and down every 15 minutes. Really worth a visit.

We visited here after being to Bath. We took the shuttle down to the house, which is beautiful looking. We visited the tea room and for the 1st time in any National Trust tea room, on the lunch menu it stated that all the soups were gluten and dairy free and that gluten free rolls are available on request. And... More
