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.

From the car park at the entrance there is a great view over the valley toward Bristol. The house is hidden down in the valley, a walk away, but there is a shuttle bus if you are not up to it. Nice house and gardens...More

A fabulous property with lots of parkland to explore. If you're fit and able then the walk from the car park is a good stroll. There's a shuttle bus if your knees aren't up to it. The house appears to undergoing a significant amount of...More

The car park is a long way from the house, the walk down adds to the enjoyment (free bus if you don't fancy a walk). Gardens were good. House was interesting, it felt 'real' with the visible conservation work. Interior is not as impressive as...More

I only saw this lovely place for a short time and it is beautiful. Walked the edge of it whilst on The Cotswold Way and it is stunning. Put this on my list of places to go back to.
