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 tours, areas and exhibitions.

Even on a cold and foggy day this is a beautiful place to visit. Mike, our ranger and guide through the deer park and gardens was interesting and informative ...we wished that he had shown us around the house too. A beautiful place to explore and watch the deer.

This is a great place for a long walk in a safe environment. Dress for some muddy tracks and expect a few steep paths. Durham has a nice tearoom, including outdoor seating. There is a frequent bus from the car park if you don't want a long walk or have run out of steam for the uphill walk back. Look... More

Totally agree with reviewer Ceri R who notes the change of pricing. The NT is define try NOT for everyone at these prices, and the annual tickets are also not reasonable, in comparison to those places where admission tickets can be converted to annual passes. The NT only seem interested in keeping these national areas for those with money.

This is a classic national trust property. Probably expensive if you are not members it's well worth joining for the savings. There are great walks for all ages. There is a bus down to the house and Gardens for those struggling to walk especially back up the hill. We spent a good 3 hours here on a moderate Feb day... More

Thought we would come and visit here as my husband drives by it every day. It's with national trust, and a fiver each to get in, which I thought was pretty good. Walked 10 mins from car to house which wasn't too bad. Or u can use the bus. All they ask is a donation to keep the bus. House... More

We visited here on Monday 6th February on a very wintry day....but it was a great day. The house is located a leisurely 20 minute downhill walk through the vast gardens, with fallow deer grazing around the grounds. You can get the provided bus to the house, but we fancied a walk, even with the icy cold winds howling around... More

Our visit combined a beautiful walk around the deer park which descend into a hidden valley in which is a classical country house. the gardens are impressive although a shadow their former extent. We had a tour around the house which was really good and highlighted the history of Dyrham and how it was being conserved. We had lunch in... More

Gorgeous walk around the park and gardens, such a beautiful house and stunning views from up on the hills. There is great access for everyone to enjoy this historic site. Perfect for families to wear out the kids. I was slightly disappointed by the tea room offerings but otherwise a great morning out!
