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.

There's a fairly long walk to the house from the parking but it is downhill - get the bus back!
Pleasant grounds and interesting house plus good food

“A good family day out”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The house is very interesting and the staff helpful. Clearly in need of some tlc in places. Lots to see and do in the house, even a place to buy old books! The grounds are extensive with a number of well marked walks with lots of places to picnic. The deer are beautiful and very friendly. Good day out

“Family day out”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

What a wonderful day at this amazing National Trust property! Beautiful house with large well kept gardens and grounds.Regular shuttle bus from car park to house but it is also a lovely walk for those that want to.The wild deer that suddenly appeared in their hundreds from nowhere was an amazing sight! Lovely areas to picnic by the ponds and lots of shaded seating in the café.A brilliant day out!

“Curates Egg”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Hot Day in July - Magic, but
Three friends of a certain age - one in his eighties
Friend dropped car, I helped the older one find a seat badgered all the way by a man who would not give us a moments rest until we had paid for entry. This was a weekday and as realistically the only way from car park to house was by bus, we would be cagey about going there on a busy weekend day. Sticking to the negatives (but don't give up!) the house spent a number of years as a school and various other uses so there is little or no original furniture. The inside is not very sparkling to be honest
BUT on a warm sunny day I can think of no better garden in England and I have seen a few
The gardeners have taken hold of the Victorian gardens and filled them with colour all interspersed with seating and places to sit out of the sun. It is fabulous

“Beautiful NT grounds”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

A great setting in rolling countryside. The gardens are excellent and well worth a walk around by themselves. Try the walk back up hill to the car park, great views and you get close up to the deer.
