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.

The grounds are pleasant but not breathtaking. There is a small bus to and from the car park for tired people. Unfortunately a lot of the interior was spoilt by a Lady who rented the house in the early 20thC, though there are some lovely furnishings.

This is a National Trust property close to Bath. The house is approached from the car park via a steep winding road but they provide a free bus if you can't make it. Why not walk down and spot the deer and cattle, then catch the bus back when you have finished your trip. The house is lovely; the stewards... More

First rate venue for a day out at a National Trust property. Long walk from car park and very steep on the way back but well worth it and there is a regular free bus service if you need it. Fantastic grounds and a real insight into Tudor and later period lifestyles.

Dyrham park is by far one of the best places of national trusts one should consider. The landscape is beautiful, well preserved, trees are amazing, and free roaming deers are present. The house isn't the best though. Knightshayes and Dunster castle are better if you are looking for similar house. It was a great family outing, only beaten by Stourhead

Thank you for your feedback, we hope to see you again soon - the house is in a state of transformation following last year's re-roofing project so you can expect to see more changes in the coming years. Best wishes. More

We had a very pleasant day at Dyrham Park. The house is interesting and being renovated very well and the gardens are absolutely lovely. The NT is doing a very good job with this house and gardens.

Nice to have a shuttle bus to the house! You can tour the house at your own pace with the attendants very helpful and knowledgeable. Very nice gardens well laid out. Nice church and grounds.

Lovely few hours to start a weekend away in Bath. So much to see in the grounds alone. Beautiful backdrop to the house itself are the stunning grounds containing many mature trees. Cattle and deer roam freely which is a real treat. The gardens are so interesting too with several ponds and borders. The gardeners are very knowledgable and extremely... More

Went to Dyrham on the spur of the moment. Parking was fine even though we're in the overflow. Parkland was lovely and to see the deer up close was special. Thought the house was a bit of a letdown considering the entrance fee. If you have national trust membership it would be worthwhile.

We aren't members of the national trust but we have visited Dyrham park in the past and bought a grounds only ticket. On Easter Sunday we decided to take our children there only to be told it's now a set price of £13.00 each and we were given the hard sell on becoming members. Unfortunately the lady was bordering on... More

We're sorry that you feel this way. We'll pass the feedback onto the reception team for you. We've invested heavily in the park and garden in recent years, creating a new play area, new guided walks and tours and opening the lost terraces as well as developing the Old Lodge play area and allotment.
