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 areas and exhibitions. See the website for details.

We popped into Dyrham Park last weekend as we were visiting the area. The car park is a bit of a distance from the actual house so a free bus service is available unless you fancied the walk which is mostly downhill. Its only about a 10 minute drive to the house but we were still given some information on... More

We visited once before when the house was closed, so decided to go back. Very warm welcome - I was so impressed that they even managed to convince me to take up the National Trust membership. The grounds are beautifully kept, the tour of the house was incredibly informative - the guides are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We even got... More

We received a warm welcome on a very wet and windy November morning and took advantage of the bus transfer to the house - thanks NT. Only the ground floor rooms were open (winter opening) so the tour only took 30mins but interesting rooms nonetheless and lots of art on show, though many rooms very dark on this dull day... More

Dyrham Park is a very impressive National Trust property, with impressive formal gardens set in an ancient deer park. When we went there the deer were fighting for the right to mate!

We are National Trust members so thought we would have a look at Dyrham Park whilst in the area. I am not sure of the cost for non members, but there is a lot to take in on the estate so probably well worth the entry fee. The estate is gorgeous and has vast parkland for walks in the crisp... More

Over the years we have driven past the sign to the National Trust Park and always thought how we must explore it! Are we glad we did and can see why people would want to return time and time again. £12 for the park and house i thought was good value for money. The shuttle bus for the less able... More

Currently the house is an example of the "one size fits all" 60's interpretation of the national trust. The house whilst set in a beautiful landscaped deer park is dull. The rooms are dull and uninspiring with very little to hold ones attention or interest. The exception being two perspective paintings by hoogsraten especially the one with the welcoming dog....

Very nice place to visit, although there was a lot of refurbishment going on at the moment. It was still an enjoyable visit and the grounds are lovely. It's not too far from the M4 so very easy to find. At the end of the visit was a lovely fre chocolate drink to a very old recipe.

My partner and I visited this delightful escape from reality last Sunday after staying with friends in Bath. We had no idea what to expect but left feeling so pleased that we'd visited. The views are just stunning as you walk down the steep banks towards the house, passing very people-tolerant deer including 2 very sweet small bambi ones -... More

Expensive for what's there. House Small and rather tired in places. House has only three rooms on show. We went on the 'behind the scenes tour' late starting and rather dull. Just showed us a load of poorly renovated rooms from the 60's. however the history of the owner was interesting. Only thing worth visiting for is the dear. Avoid... More

Sorry you feel this way - we have the five dressed rooms ('Mr Blathwayt's apartment') to show what the house looked like in the 17th-century when it came into being in its current guise but we're only a few months out of a huge £3.8m project to replace the leaking roof and as such the rest of the house is...
