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.

A lovely house and garden. This was mine and the wife's second trip. on the first occasion, the access was limited as the building was under repair and so was completely scaffolded. we promised each other we would come back when the scaffolding was down. the building looks very impressive we walked the garden first and is beautiful walking up...

I have visited Dyrham Park twice in the last month having recently moved to the area. It was my intention to be a regular visitor, particularly as we entertain a large number of guests on a regular basis. However, my recent visit last week was such a poor experience for me and my companions that regrettably I am unlikely to... More

Thank you for your detailed feedback; we're sorry you felt your visit did not offer value for money. We've just completed a £3.8m project to replace the leaking roof and safeguard the future of the house. As a conservation charity we rely on financial donations to look after our places and couldn't do it without this generous support from members... More

Dyrham park is well worth a visit for the grounds and beautiful gardens . Many families were enjoying picnics in the grounds. We wish we had brought snacks or a picnic with us as the cafe is below par - slow service, small portions and insufficient indoor seating. The house is being renovated, which meant there isn't a great deal... More

Thank you for your comment - sorry you found the house underwhelming, we'll pass your feedback onto the house team for you. We hope you made it to Mr Blathwayt's apartment as well, formal dressed rooms which give you a real flavour of the 17th-century. More

We really enjoy visiting this lovely National Trust place, the park has lovely surroundings with magnificent views and the gardens are beautiful with a variety of flowers which attract the wildlife. The staff and volunteers are always helpful and friendly, they do an amazing job maintaining the parkland, house and gardens. It also has a lovely tearoom which serves good... More

Well done the NT again, my wife and I joined some years go as life members and we do spend quite lot of time throughout the year visiting the properties (sometimes only as a refreshment stop when travelling). We went to Dyrham today July 22nd hot and sunny showing the English landscapes and gardens at their best. The NT guides... More

We didn't plan on stopping here, but saw it on our drive to Bath, and decided to turn in. We were so glad we did. Since it was only our second day in England, and this was a National Trust property, we joined the National Trust, which then got us in free at many other locations. The grounds of this... More

Dyrham Park has beautiful grounds and gardens. The house is undergoing restoration with the ground floor open and still very interesting showing its 17th C history. A bus is provided to get people from the entrance to the house and gardens. A disappointment was the cafe food which for what we had was very poor value for money. We both... More

The park at Dyrham is vast and beautiful with views in all directs over the gloucestershire hills. The gardens are grand and formal harking back to the Baroque splendour that once existed across the royal houses of Europe. The flower beds and water gardens are immaculate. The refreshment facilities are good although we find the NT move towards standardising their... More

Took the tour of the upper rooms of the house, guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was good to be some of the first able to do this. House is interesting and lots of history.

We had a wonderful day here with our 3 young children. There was a small park plus an area with logs arranged as balance beams which the kids loved. Deer all over the place. There were plenty of toilets plus an ice cream shop. There was a cafe but we didn't eat there so can't comment on that. It's a... More
