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.

We made a family visit to Dyrham Park on a cold and misty day in December. Setting off into the parkland we discovered a herd of deer quietly feeding. At first just shapes in the mist but they allowed us to approach within a safe...More

Been to Dyrham several times over the years. There is really nothing to do there and in the winter it is on an exposed hill so its like being in the arctic!

We're sorry that you feel this way - we were celebrating a 17th-century Christmas this year with decorations, events, trail and daily guided walks and tours as detailed on our notice boards and at visitor reception. Apologies if you missed any of this.

This is a beautiful place and well worth the visit. The quality of the food in the cafe lets them down though. Also poorly staffed at busy times. With hindsight would have gone to a local hostelry for lunch. Expected better. Parking is a bit...More

Not in the main deer park, house and garden. With the exception of assistance dogs. We do have a dog walking area next to the car park if needed.
