Dyrham Park, Dyrham

4.3
#1 of 9 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.

  • This offers something for everyone. The deer are often found on the side of the park opposite the car park. The house is informative and the staff are knowledgeable. Free parking is always a bonus and so is the bus to the house for those that do not want to walk down. Has a kids park too.
  • Lovely National Trust. Takes about fifteen minutes to walk down to the house or a free bus service is provided (donations welcomed). Deer roam the fields. The house is very nice, keyed lockers to put large bags in and a buggy park lovely church on site too. Shop and cafe.
  • Nice. How the rich lived once upon a time is staggering. Even horses probably had better accommodation compared to the enslaved workers. Good gardens.
  • Perfect place for families, couples, singles day out. So much to see and enjoy. You can relax or go active. It is simply up to you.
  • Amazing place. Lovely grounds with fabulous views. Gorgeous formal gardens. The house is stunning. Will definitely be going back.
