There is a lovely approach to the house from the ticket office with some stunning views. You can either walk (recommended), or take the regular shuttle bus. The exterior of the house is beautiful. The interior is like the curate's egg; good in parts, but...More

Always meant to visit Dyrham Park as I drive past it often enough and today I did! What a beautiful place, lovely grounds and gardens and woodland walks. Very surprised to see such flowers as delphiniums out in November!! Fairly large herd of fallow deer...More

To be honest, the best part about my visit here, was the beauty of the garden, ravishing in autumn colours. I didn't really see many deer and was very disappointed with the walk around the perimeter. All I can say is that it killed a...More

Thanks for the feedback Naomi and glad you enjoyed the autumn colours. It's a shame you missed the deer who are right at the end of their particularly active rutting season. After this they are quite exhausted and spend a lot of time resting and...More

We visited recently and found the place to be very nice if we had visited during the Summer you could have taken a picnic and enter the grounds - wild deer 🦌 and lovely gardens well worth a visit

Highly appropriate that a stately pile partly built on the profits of the slave trade should have a tearoom reminiscent of the Black Hole of Calcutta.

Thanks for the comment and we are working on making the tea-room a more suitable space to accommodate the growing number of visitors to Dyrham Park as part of a large project of investment currently being carried out.

No dogs are able to go in the main park because there are heards of deer, however there is a section as you exit which is outside the deer park that dogs can go.
