Overview

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.

A lovely national trust find. The house was mainly on winter shut down, so not a huge amount to see, but the grounds had amazing views to Bristol, and across to Wales. The sight of all the fallow deer together was a real treat. Unusually...More

I came here with my husband as we have National Trust membership and we loved it. Beautiful walks and an area of natural beauty. Only small criticism is there isn't a great option for food but nice for a coffee.

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.
