Owner description: 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.

We were persuaded by our daughter to visit these premises and we were not disappointed. We arrived at the entrance and visualised a long walk. However, a mini-bus arrived and conveyed us to the house. You can walk if you wish. The house tour is well organised with ample direction signs & descriptive sheets in each room. In addition, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable and happy to help. We found the House to be just the right size for us and had very interesting afternoon, with lots to see.

Fantastic long walks in magnificent grounds, stunning views, extremely well maintained, also free bus to and from car park if you don't want the long steep walk to the house. Gardens were very pretty, outside of the house stunning, slightly disappointed with inside, due to a great need of renovations to the house not much was open to the public.
Would I revisit? Definitely for the walks and the gardens, great day in the sunshine for picnics and fun with the family

I was on a journey to Wales and planned to break for lunch at Dyrham Park. The house itself was not open on the day I visited - hence 4 out of 5 rating. It was a lovely day and I enjoyed the walk down the hill to the tea room and gardens. Had a good lunch and loved the atmosphere and setting. Lovely staff in the tea room. Walked back up the hill (quite steep) which took a bit longer - 15 minutes or so. Would love to spend more time there and see inside the house.

A magnificent property incorporating stunning buildings set in a huge park where fallow deer roam free. The buildings remind one of an era long gone. Full of Antiques and interesting artifacts.

Great day out. When you arrive, the House is quite a walk from the car park, but the National Trust have laid on a free Bus to the property if you either can't, or wish not to walk. I can't walk that far so took the bus which is a shame as there are lots of Deer roaming free in the grounds & it was a lovely sunny day when we visited the walk would have been lovely. The Gardens & ground floor of the House are wheelchair accessible but you won't be able to see the upper floor unless you can manage the stairs. There is also a nice little Church to visit if you should wish to do so. Overall a very nice day out & will probably visit again.
