Dyrham Park, Dyrham
(4.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
A Baroque mansion set in a sprawling estate, Dyrham Park holds 300 years of the aristocratic life of the Blathwayt family. The estate sprawls for 110 hectares (270 acres), so take long walks along the footpaths, or ask for a guide if you want someone to show you around. Look for the herd of fallow deer foraging in the old trees. Visit the gardens, replanted every season, which always have something thriving. Inside the manor, look for fine collections of Delft ceramics and Dutch art. Check out the Victorian kitchen under the stairs to see how the servants of the family worked and lived.

  • Currently the house is an example of the "one size fits all" 60's interpretation of the national trust. The house whilst set in a beautiful landscaped deer park is dull. The rooms are dull and uninspi...  more »

  • Actually one of the most disappointing NT properties we've been to, gardens are nice, but not extensive, and worth the garden only price, the house on the other hand is not worth doubling the entrance fee for. A few empty rooms with zero atmosphere. Probably won't return any time soon I'm afraid.
  • Huge grounds, so be prepared for lots of walking to see the best bits. Big house, lovely gardens, nice cafe and lots of great wood carvings. However, who puts a children's play area on top of a hill? I'm knackered now!
  • A great family day out, it offers so much variety from wildlife to history. You simply must see it for yourself.
  • An impressive building, although not a great deal of interest inside. One gem of history I picked up is that the original owner of Dyrham Park, William Blathwayt (1649-1717), was in effect the 'ruler' of the USA when he became responsible for the management of the British colony in Massachusetts Bay! Needless to say, he never actually visited there, but he evidently profited greatly from his connection.
  • Lovely grounds with deer that you might be lucky enough to see. Beautiful gardens and a great team room. Would have been 5 stars but the house is still being worked on so only a few rooms open. In the rooms open some of the art work is fantastic .
