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.

There are beautiful views all around the parkland walks and none more so than the gem of a house in a valley hollow. An excellent place for a picnic or a cream tea or light lunch
