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.

  • Amazing setting, just stunning views. Had a picnic next to a herd of deer and then explored down by the house and had an ice cream by the pond. Beautiful.
  • Lovely place. Currently being renovated but the inside of the house is interesting. The gardens are beautiful make sure to walk round them all!
  • Beautiful house and grounds. There is lots to see and so much parkland to explore. It is quite a walk back up to the car park but there is a bus if you don't fancy the walk. There are plenty of food/drink outlets around the site.
  • Another feather in National Trust's cap...well worth a visit. Gardens are very well kept and the lawns provide a wonderful place to relax and picnic under the many magnificent trees. The pond is full of life and well maintained. One can see the ongoing works in order to improve on a lovely property. One can choose to either walk down to the buildings and gardens or take the bus - I suggest walking down and busing up. If you want the ground provide a great walk looking for deer...so majestic and wonderful to find. It was school holidays when I visited so was full of families with loads of kids, if you prefer quieter times perhaps remember this when going.
  • Lovely gardens and an impressive house. Be warned, they are doing a lit of renovations so not at it's best. Interesting if you like to see it in progress. As always, great cafe and the cakes looked fabulous. I had soup which was home made and delicious.
