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.

Well organised parking and bus or walk to the house. Beautiful grounds and views. However, the house was such a disappointment. We started in the cafe which was cold with very slow and unfriendly service. The house itself is not somewhere I would want to linger. Very cold and dull, volunteers obviously hugely passionate and knowledgable about it and we... More

The manor house itself was not very impressive compared to many other national trust properties. Also, the small chapel (which is not owned by national trust but adjoins the house) was locked and we couldn't get in, despite it being an active church. Oh well. The grounds were very expansive and while not manicured to their former glory, they were... More

Great walk down to the house through the parkland, discovered that there were behind the scenes conservation tours being offered. Tickets were available from the "Basement" but upon asking three separate volunteers where the basement was i was still non the wiser as they could not tell me. Thankfully the female behind the till in the shop was knowledgeable and... More

This is a stunning park with great walks and views and an interesting and improving smallish garden. In side the house the rooms are scantly furnished and not as well presented as other NT places. The day we visited some rooms on the first floor could not be visited due to lack of volunteer staff

Dyrham Park has something for everyone. For the walkers, there is a 15 mins stroll down to the house and for those with mobility issues, there is a very regular bus. The house is undergoing major refurbishment having just completed a £3.5m roof replacement and on our visit we were unable to go upstairs as there was a shortage of... More

We parked at the car park and walked down to the house, the views were fantastic. For people who have mobility problems there is a bus which you can catch from the car park down to the house. We spent quite a while watching a craftsman at work building a dry stone wall.

A lovely walk through the deer park, a lovely bit of lunch and a lovely walk around the gardens seeing it starting to come to life on this lovely Spring day. Looking forward to seeing the herbaceous borders in all there glory this summer. Also what a fabulous place for all the children running around in their wellies.

Even on a cold and foggy day this is a beautiful place to visit. Mike, our ranger and guide through the deer park and gardens was interesting and informative ...we wished that he had shown us around the house too. A beautiful place to explore and watch the deer.

Very pleasant afternoon walk, cake & tea and wander around the house. Driven past many times and never visited, really wish we had gone earlier! We will be back.

This is a great place for a long walk in a safe environment. Dress for some muddy tracks and expect a few steep paths. Durham has a nice tearoom, including outdoor seating. There is a frequent bus from the car park if you don't want a long walk or have run out of steam for the uphill walk back. Look... More
