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.

Stunning grounds. Easy to walk down to the house but was glad of the suttle back, 17th century house with some interesting artefacts.

Dryham is a lovely setting with vast parkland containing cows and deer. While on a significant slope, a bus can take you up and down if you don't fancy the walk. Gardens alone are worth a visit and part has been returned to an earlier time. Well maintained and do see the higher path in the trees which is worth... More

Just spent an interesting 4 hours here without even entering the house, due to time limits & negative reviews about the inside of the house. The grounds are massive so I would recommend the free guided tours. We did the Deer spotting tour & were amazed to see so many of these gorgeous creatures close up. Then we did the... More

The walk is really beautiful, and accessible to all. There is a bus that can take you down to the main house. Which has a cafe as well as an area where some families where having picnics. The house itself is interesting, similar to a museum. Although a lot of the staircases where closed off. The hot chocolate at the... More

Visited here a long time ago and enjoyed it. Been on our must see again list. Went on a dry day so that we could walk from car park to house. If you don't want to or can't walk down then there is a shuttle bus between the two. The gardens are small compared to some stately homes but the... More

Dyrham Park is a sizeable estate with rolling fields affording panoramic views over the Bristol Channel across to Wales and "overlooking" Bristol in the distance. The park has a herd of Fallow deer, cows and old farm buildings with play equipment for children. The grounds are great for a walk on a nice day affording exercise and good views. At... More

They have been very busy planting up additional borders in the garden which looked super when we visited on a sunny day. We also took a conservation tour which was very interesting, numbers are limited to 10 people per tour. There is a courtesy bus to take you down from the Carpark, or walk down and take the bus back.

The visit to Dyrham park was worth the time. When we arrived we were quite concerned the parking lot seemed far from the house. And the terrain seemed vast for the deer park. We told the entry staff that I had sprained my ankle. And they arranged for a private tour on a small 4 wheel drive vehicle. It was... More

The work on the roof was finished, so we thought it a good time to visit. We had checked on the web pages but on arrival found the park closed for essential maintenance ... with a likely opening time in 2 to 3 hours. Not to worry, we went elsewhere to return early afternoon. On entering, we were told that... More

Visited Dyrham park with my family. On entering the car park we were invited on a trip around the park in a off road vehicle which is used to allow disabled visitors to view the park which they previously would have struggled to do. The guide Kevin Grimes was lovely helping my Nan into the van and getting her mobility... More
