Overview
More
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.

We had an excellent guided tour of the deer park with one of the volunteer rangers before visiting the House and adjacent cafe for soup and coffee as a light lunch. There's much of interest to see here and some lovely walks too. We thoroughly...More

I love Dyrham Park, the parkland full of old trees, the walks, the house and the garden are all lovely. The scenery from the top of the hill is stunning. The deer in the park are not so skittish as some and will tolerate you...More

We visited on a beautiful sunny day. The house setting and grounds are spectacular. We loved the gardens. The house was very interesting, but my wife suffers from arthritic knees and there were very few places for her to sit down. The quality of the...More

Loved the park, a really lovely walk and beautiful views. The exterior of the house is stunning but the inside rather dark and depressing. The cafe was the real letdown - very long queue, nice fresh sandwiches but the cake! The National Trust surely lives...More

It is a National Trust property and therefor has everything that they offer. The grounds, the main reason for our visit, offer many walks through the parkland with fallow deer and autumn colours

Yes they will love the grounds to run around. Watching the Fallow Deer are amazing. Do not approach or chase them. There is a play park . I did not see it as no kids with me. Plenty of fresh air will soon tire them out... More

Not in the main deer park, house and garden. With the exception of assistance dogs. We do have a dog walking area next to the car park if needed.
