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 had a lovely couple of hours strolling the grounds - a beautiful place. We were fortunate enough to see a couple of deer on the way back up to the exit

Recently visited Dyrham Park with my two youngest children who are 9 and 3. Although the weather on the day wasn't the best it was still an enjoyable day out. Staff were more than happy to explain the history of the house and grounds. So far my experience of visiting National Trust properties has been excellent. Staff are friendly and... More

On a beautiful summers day I enjoyed a lovely tour of the gardens with a very knowledgeable National Trust volunteer guide. A lot of work had been done since my last visit. The new roof on the house looked amazing and the statue looked so much better painted white. I enjoyed a lovely cup of tea in the tea gardens... More

Never visited the house. Loved the extensive gardens with ponds. We sat down by one and ate our snacks. Some blanket weed on the waters but not a lot. So hot we removed socks and shoes and dipped our hot, tired feet into the water. Lovely! A group of very young children appeared with some uniformed adults ( house volunteers?)... More

Having become National Trust members earlier this year, we decided to visit Dyrham Park which wasn't too far from us (Bristol). I checked the website which said dogs were allowed in a wooded area - great! We packed our lunches and were joined by our beloved pooch for the journey. On arrival, we walked to the ticket booth where a... More

Went here on a very wet day. Children had a levy run around, especially in the little farm. Steep hills were a bit of a challenge but worth the effort, especially when a herd of cows walked straight through our group! Can't comment on the house as we didn't go inside. We did use the bus to get back up... More

Always something to see here during the changing seasons, National Trust membership and good road access makes this a favourite venue. Car park gets busy in the holidays but visit early or late and it is a large enough estate not to be crowded. We take a picnic, the cafeteria gets busy. Grounds are lovely for walking- wear trainers or... More

A lovely peaceful setting - great for a dry day. Wouldn't recommend on a rainy day as most of your time would be spent outside admiring the extensive grounds... or walking to/from the car park which is situated right at the top of a very long, steep hill down to the house itself. There is a free shuttle bus but... More

We came here to show our relatives the new lost terraces and to admire the house without the scaffolding. The planting in the formal gardens is superb and the walk 'beyond the blue door' was invigorating. Shame there were only 3 sets of cheese and pickle sandwiches left at 1 p.m. in the little place opposite the courtyard. The queue... More
