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.

Dyrham Park is an impressive house in a stunning setting.Would recommend walking from the carpark (about 15 mins and downhill all the way) to get the best view.The return uphill can be done in the courtesy bus.Interiors are interesting but not lavish.Usual enthusiastic NT volunteers are great guides.Gardens are a work-in-progress but are going to be wonderful.Well worth a visit.

Really enjoyed visiting Dyrham for the first time. The house is fascinating and it is particularly interesting to see the renovations taking place. All the guides were welcoming and very informative. The formal gardens are breathtaking at the moment and all the gardens and parkland were a joy to visit. The church is well worth a visit and the walk... More

We visit regularly but our breath was taken away by the beauty of the 'new' Dutch garden. So well tended and a riot of colour. Enjoyed changed route around house too.

A great day spent here. Lots of space to run, climb, roll down a hill. Gardens amazing and the flowers looked and smelt so beautiful. Stunning

Really beautiful place! The gardens were immaculate. Burnt off some calories by not getting the bus to the house and back. If you're able to walk I'd say skip the bus and enjoy it go and see the deer and have a proper explore!

Been here twice in three days! Super place to visit with family, imaginative farm-themed play area in Old Lodge. Hills to climb, water to look in, plenty of places to picnic, and organised activities too (saw pond-dipping today) Second visit was especially to enjoy the fantastic new spring garden planting ,so colourful, quite spectacular. Deer enjoying spring sunshine in the... More

Following a visit to the house we went to the café for coffee. Very disappointing. Half cup topped with loads of froth and barely warm. Food was expensive and bread very dry. Very slow service. Shame as this reflects the National Trust.

stopped here on way home rather than a planned visit. The house is lovely but wish we could have seen more of it. Some of the volunteers were a bit short and didn't really volunteer information whereas others (one gentleman in particular) brought the room to life with the stories. One volunteer barked at me as I started to walk... More
