Dyrham Park, Dyrham

4.3
#1 of 12 in Historic Sites in Gloucestershire
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.

  • Beautiful grounds, a fascinating house and some very friendly volunteers. The formal gardens are not huge but are beautifully maintained and very peaceful. Service in the cafe was SLOW but the food - ...  more »
  • We stopped here as it's really convenient from the M4 and found it was brilliant. The car park is a good 15 minute walk from the house but through lovely grounds where we saw a herd of deer. And there...  more »

  • This is my favourite National Trust place to visit. It's probably not one of the best houses but the grounds are wonderful, particularly if you want to get away from everyone and have a good walk and the changes of seeing deer are very high. The garden is lovely and catering facilities good. However, don't go on a Bank Holiday unless you want to spend the day with half of Bristol and Bath.
  • Beautiful grounds. House was lovely though a work in progress. The lady playing the clavichord (?) Was good. Hot chocolate tasting was a lovely idea but I couldn't taste it as not sure if it was gluten free. Very busy as it was half term.
  • The weather was good. The signage for coaches is nonexistent on the leaflet or on the roads. Beware...coaches cannot get in through the main gate! You have to go in through the exit route and take a chance going over a cattle grid and through a narrow metal fence. Not good. The walk was the house was lovely, though longer than thought due to a meandering road to reduce how the house is down the valley. Take the bus if in doubt. The stable restaurant was constantly crowded. It was hard for the staff to cope with the numbers there but my food was very good. The house is interesting and is an ongoing development to return both rooms and furniture to their original state. I enjoyed it. THEN our friend collapsed in the cafe. THE DUTY MANAGERS WERE EXCELLENT. Helpful, calm and comforting. An ambulance was called immediately and they did everything possible to help. Thank you so much. The NT should be proud of you. Also a BIG 'Thank you' to the paramedic who was visiting the NT and was on maternity leave. She stayed all the time with our friend. She was calming, caring and professional and it was beyond the call of duty. You were wonderful.
  • We went on a busy weekend. There were plenty of staff on hand in the car park and reception centre. The cafe is faultlessly well run with plenty of staff efficiently directing visitors and clearing tables to ensure a smooth flow of visitors and a minimal wait. The food is also delicious! The house and grounds are lovely we always enjoy it visits here. An excellent day out for all the family.
  • Perfect wildlife walking and enjoyable stop at the bottom for refreshments. Buses available for return to the top if unable. Lodge pit stop half way down for children to enjoy small park, toy tractors and a kitchen garden to try fresh produce from. Plenty of deer to shoot with your camera.
