Dyrham Park is home to an ancient deer park, 17th-century house and formal garden. In 2015/16, the house underwent a huge conservation project to replace the leaking roof and install a biomass boiler. The house and garden are now in a state of transformation and include new areas and exhibitions. See the website for details.

We really enjoy visiting this lovely National Trust place, the park has lovely surroundings with magnificent views and the gardens are beautiful with a variety of flowers which attract the wildlife. The staff and volunteers are always helpful and friendly, they do an amazing job maintaining the parkland, house and gardens. It also has a lovely tearoom which serves good... More

Well done the NT again, my wife and I joined some years go as life members and we do spend quite lot of time throughout the year visiting the properties (sometimes only as a refreshment stop when travelling). We went to Dyrham today July 22nd hot and sunny showing the English landscapes and gardens at their best. The NT guides... More

We didn't plan on stopping here, but saw it on our drive to Bath, and decided to turn in. We were so glad we did. Since it was only our second day in England, and this was a National Trust property, we joined the National Trust, which then got us in free at many other locations. The grounds of this... More

Dyrham Park has beautiful grounds and gardens. The house is undergoing restoration with the ground floor open and still very interesting showing its 17th C history. A bus is provided to get people from the entrance to the house and gardens. A disappointment was the cafe food which for what we had was very poor value for money. We both... More

The park at Dyrham is vast and beautiful with views in all directs over the gloucestershire hills. The gardens are grand and formal harking back to the Baroque splendour that once existed across the royal houses of Europe. The flower beds and water gardens are immaculate. The refreshment facilities are good although we find the NT move towards standardising their... More

Arrived here at 11.30am and left at approx 3.30pm...great full day. Took the tour of the upper rooms of the house, guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was good to be some of the first able to do this. House is interesting and lots of history. The grounds are lovely and it was great to stroll around them at leisure,... More

We had a wonderful day here with our 3 young children. There was a small park plus an area with logs arranged as balance beams which the kids loved. Deer all over the place. There were plenty of toilets plus an ice cream shop. There was a cafe but we didn't eat there so can't comment on that. It's a... More

Since the roof has been refurbished the furniture has not been moved back into the rooms of the house. To compensate there is artificial grass and films of the history of the house. Two years ago when we visited the rooms were beautifully dressed with house period furniture. It needs the furniture to make the entrance fee worthwhile. No mention... More

Thank you for your feedback - it sounds like you may have missed Mr Blathwayt's apartment - the rooms on the East front which are fully dressed with furniture and artwork to give you a flavour of the 17th-century. We've also opened an area at the top of the house which was previously closed as a Conservation studio, where you... More

A huge expanse of rolling countryside with fallow deer and views. The mansion is worth a tour but it is work in progress. The formal gardens are the real star of the show.

This a beautiful estate. The gardens are extensive and beautifully maintained and a pleasure to walk around but the house was a bit of a disappointment. It was being refurbished when visited but this limited access and what you could see. Shuttle bus is advised from car park at the entrance to the house as it is a steep climb... More

We're sorry you felt let down by the house - last month marked the end of a major conservation project to replace the leaking roof and safeguard the future of the mansion. We are now in a state of transformation, looking at how best to present the house and collection and have tried to create new areas and exhibitions to... More
